This is my first unique knitting creation, working without a pattern! And my first time using Lion Brand Yarn's wool, too. I'm having fun with this optical illusion ... it's a green bag with blue stripes ... no wait, it's blue with green stripes! I've just finished the body of my tote--the plan is to knit some rectangle panels to form the "sides" of the bag, add handles, and then felt. I haven't decided what color to make the handles--I could make them striped, or completely solid, or one of each color, matching the dominant color for that side of the bag .... so many choices!
