That is a nice large tote for sure, going to carry stuff to the cabin in it? Probably pack, oh, one tenth your knitting for the week.

I haven't decided! For now, I'm just gonna leave the 3 ponchos inside of it! I wear one of the ponchos up in the mountains in lieu of a shawl or coat... when it gets nippy at night, under the stars, sipping a Tangueray-and-Tonic by the camp fire. The ole backside still gets cold!

I'll ruminate about what I want to use it for. There could be lots of uses!

It would be neat to lug it to my South Sound Knitter's Guild Meetings, eh? We meet the 2nd Sunday of every month. I could take my current WIP! Or, my 'show-and-share' project!

Looks super! You're on a felting roll!! I must get to it again. We had crafters in our office (Corporate fairs) last week and one woman had hand knit items. She had a beautiful felted bag which she added pockets to the sides for water bottles, etc. Between ogling her bags and your bowls and bags, I'm getting inspired to give felting another go!!

Oh, that's fabulous! I love the construction -- it looks very sturdy for carring lots of stuff.
