Idea for a knitting tote.
Wasn't sure where to post this, so I'll let the Mod squad sort it out. (you're welcome, ladies )

Anyway, I had mentioned a book when I first signed on to this board, called 365 knitting stitches a year. (can't remember it's exact title, and even though it's out in my living room, I'm too lazy to go get it hehe) Well reading several earlier posts about what to do with the gauge swatches and so on, I think I've found a use for this book. And that is, I'm going to put together my own knitting tote using the knitted swatches, that I do religiously every morning.

Had looked on Ebay to find one that could hold my stash, but unfortunately, couldn't find one that I liked. Besides, it's going to be my tote, might as well show off my work in a functional manner, what do you all think?

Wisdom is knowing what to do. Skill is how to do it. Virtue is getting it done.

That which does not kill you, isn't trying hard enough.

I think that is a great idea! I want to try new things... but I hate having all that effort go to waste! Putting all that work on display sounds perfect!

yeah i think this is a great idea cuz i gotta admit...i never swatch. i don't make things that really need it at this point but i figure as long as it takes me to knit since i mostly only get about 10-15 minutes here and there, i don't wanna waste time swatching too. if i felt like my swatches wern't going to waste i think i would be more likely to it. and it would look reeeeeeeally cool with all the different colors and a patch work quilt...

make me one tooooooooo! :rofling:
