So, my last Christmas gift (except for the reknit that I still haven't started) was Kristin's yoga mat tote. I loved knitting it for her. It was fun to watch the stripes, and I loved the colors that I chose for the bag. The pattern was written by Stephanie Roy and is published in Knit Wit, by Amy Singer. The pattern called for Mission Falls Cotton, but I used Lily Sugan 'n Cream cotton instead. It was a fast and somewhat mindless knit (I'm liking these mindless knits lately) as it was made with stockinette stitch in the round. This was my first project on the addi turbos and as I've said before I really loved working with them, despite the fact that little pieces of them kept shaving off the sides. Kristin practices bikram yoga and I hope that she enjoys the tote as much as I enjoyed knitting it for her. I've already espoused about how much I liked the stitching of the handle.
Not much knitting this week. I think I needed a break.
