I made this tote for one of my best friends.  And shes the ONLY one I would have made it for. With anybody else in mind, I would have thrown up my hands and tried something faster less than a month into the process!  

Its not that its difficult the techniques are actually fairly simple, and the pattern is wonderfully written clear as glass and very helpful.

But its double knit, which makes it fully reversible, but is also incredibly tedious, and its knit to be felted, so it had to be huge.  I was afraid it would shrink too much, but the final product is 11 tall, 10 wide and 6 deep.  Im quite pleased with it, and as a fellow knitter, I think my friend will not only like it, but appreciate the effort, too!

The effort was worth it, because it looks fabulous! I love the style of it Cheesy and it's even better to know that your friend will appreciate both how rocking it looks and how much energy and time you put into it, I'm sure she will love it!

Thanks, folks -- she loved it!  Turns out pink-and-pirate is going to be the decorating theme for her soon-to-arrive baby, so I'm ahead of the curve!
