    Good job on a neat bag. Wonderful size for toting knitting around. Now, we can look forward to more posts since you have broken your spell of no sewing!

    I love that market bag pattern. I use them for grocery bags. Every year I give them away to the clerks and fellow customers who admire them and make myself a new set. perfect for using up scraps. Yours is lovely.

    I agree. You made a very pretty bag that will work great storing her knitting.

    pretty bag and soft padded handles are a plus
    put off till tomorrow what you can do today, and if you procrastinate long enough, you may never have to do it.

    Your tote bag is really pretty and so practical. They are so much fun to carry around and this one has a special purpose. I also like DebraK's comment-to just give some away to those around you who admire them. That is special.
