Before I begin knitting the pockets of the Felted Knitting Tote, let's talk about a couple of cool structural elements of the bag itself.

Yes, the body of my new project is worked in the round. (Yay! I love knitting in the round.) I'm making the Felted Knitting Tote from the much ballyhooed Paton's Classic

Before I even tossed my Moccasins for Him into the pillowcase for felting, I knew I had one problem. My gift was being felted here in Seattle, and the pair of

I recently moved however, and my new place has a washer/dryer. (I'm still giddy with excitement over doing laundry for free whenever I
