Another project from Mary's knitting book recommendations (Alterknits and One Skein). The felted totes are fun and fast to make. Almost instant gratification. I jokingly asked Hope's swim teacher if he would like me to make him a tote and he (I don't think he realized I was kidding) said he would -- if I could make it in blue and white -- his school colors. Aww. Gary reminded me tonight that knitting isn't the first crafty kick I've been on; I did sew sweatshirts for several people in my family the week before Christmas 15 years ago.
