tote green

I got a little bored with round after round of p3, k3, so I took a break from sock-making to whip up this delightful little farmer's market tote.

It's based (loosely) off of this pattern. I modified it by using green Sugar & Cream yarn (one skein plus a smidge), and a 5.5 mm hook. Only five rounds on the base, eleven total rounds of mesh, two rounds of edge and handles. A bit more tweaking there, too.

This tote went home with my sister, but I love it, so I'll probably make more. Plus, I don't know what the heck else Sugar & Cream yarn is good for. :)
