Beautiful work on all of your projects! I love the definition of the cables you achieved in the felted tote. Just wonderful.

Great job,Lib! I've been thinking about that tote for myself,nice to see one in the colors I'd choose. And I agree that it doesn't look over felted at all.

I knitted the bag fast-ish because it was inspiration to get out of a slump hehe I hadn't knit anything for nearly a month and was just unmotivated until I was reminded of that bag adn thought "Ok, that's the project to get my knitting mojo back!" hehe...

The pattern was no problem. There was something that bothered me but when I asked around on Ravelry it seems others who had made the pattern just took it as a design element. On teh bottom part of the knot if you follow the cable chart there are 2 places that the knot "strands" don't weave in and out like I feel they should. Instead of alternating over and under there are 2 places that it crosses over twice and to me it just looked like a mistake. I'm kinda finicky about celtic knotwork and so I just changed the pattern so that it evenly wove in and out. No big deal except after that point my cable crossings were reversed to what the chart said. Didn't bother me hehe.... Plenty of people have made the pattern as is and it looks fine, like I said, I'm just a bit picky when it comes to knotwork haha...

The other thing I did that was not in teh pattern is I crocheted around the top edge and handles for some extra reinforcing. But overall I think it's a good pattern and I plan to make more as Christmas presents since this one came out so well!

I tinK, therefore I am
