Sadly, this blog is a bit sleepier than I'd like these days. Pop over here if you'd like to know why.

Nest Tote

The knit blogging is back.

I told a friend I'd make her something for her birthday. And then... I just couldn't think of what to make. With less than a week to the deadline, I finally figured it out. This environmentally friendly lady would appreciate a nest tote/produce bag! But of course obligations interfered and it was a late night of furious knitting to make it in time. I totally didn't. But only a week late... and considering she lives an hour + drive away, I think that's pretty good.

This was my first successful lace project. Probably the easiest pattern ever. I also figured out that whole i-cord thing, amazing really. Want to make your own? Go here.

Delivery of the tote came just in time to make a run to Pike Place Market.

It's also the first item to get a Pilliebee label!
