I know this is supposed to be a knitting blog, but I just have to show you all my new tote bag. I found this coolest ever fabric (I'm sure you'll agree) at a store in Minneapolis, and made a bag out of it. I'm one of those people who are always hauling a whole bunch of stuff with them everywhere, and sometimes I feel like I look like a bag lady... So I needed a nice new bag, so that I can at least look like a stylish bag lady!

Here's the inside (they also had very cool matching fabrics for lining):

And a close-up of the coolest ever fabric:

I think the name of the store was Calico Corner. Very nice little fabric store -I could hardly get out of there, because I wanted to buy just about everything they had, but my pocket book just wouldn't allow it. I did also got a couple of other fabrics for more bags, but those will have to wait till later.

There has been some knitting progress, too, mainly due to the thicker-than-usual yarn.

I've finished both front pieces and have started the back:

(Lankahamsterit: tässä on vähän vajaa 200 g lankaa. Erittäin riittoisaa, muuten...)
