Since I've finally been knitting more, I wanted a nice bag to keep my knitting and some knitting supplies in. I made myself a large rectangular tote with a small interior pocket and a big double pocket with some decorative stitching on the outside. It works well for knitting, but it is also a great tote for other purposes. I went out on a limb thinking that I'm not the only one who has a use for this bag and made four more for the shop.
I can't decide what to call this bag or exactly what it is for. I've used it for knitting, to carry my stuff to yoga (I like a deep tote bag for storing my mat on the walk to class), and it is also handy when you need to grab your stuff and go.
I love the way stitching looks on the outside of fabric. Whether it is abstract or a more recognizable design, it is fun to do. I think I would like to do more with lines and designs of stitching.
