Oregon tote
I have only been knitting since Jan and am loving it. I finished my 2nd tote last night. It is the Oregon tote. I used WOTA pumpkin and maple syrup and Patons classic wool rich red. It felted great!! Next time I will make the straps longer than what the pattern calls for. They are a little shorter than what I want. I may make a new set. I think a monster has been created!! I am already looking for my next project. :XX:

Nice tote! I've never felted anything before, so it always looks amazing to me.

Oh pretty! I am using that Pumpkin in my momstrosity bag (so named because its basically a combo of the booga bag, the farmers tote, and will be as big as it can until the yarn runs out) - I love how that looks! Didnt have the Oregon tote pattern handy or else I probably would have used that, did have Maggie's tote, but ended up forgetting the pattern when I needed it. Sigh.

That looks great!

I haven't done any felting yet - I can't decide what to make first! :thinking:

Looks great -- I love the colors! I have some maple syrup, pumpkin, avacado, and evergreen WOTA that I'm planning to use for my next felted bag.

Isn't it so satisfying to knit something that you love?!? Especially as it's only your second project ... you just jumped right in!

LOVE the bag! The colors are gorgeous!
