I love a good tote bag that will sit up by itself and not spill it’s contents everywhere. It must have solid sides, good handles, and a few pockets in the lined interior. Whether I use it as a knitting bag or to bring necessities on a road trip, it should be roomy and functional.
I also like a lot of texture in my knitting, but cannot get away with much of it on my vertically challenged, horizontally blessed body. So, I save the bells and whistles (or bobbles and leaves as the case may be) for my accessories.

I’ve married these two requirements in this fun and easy-to-make tote that features a fabric lining, wooden handles, and a rigid plastic needlepoint canvas frame.
What a perfect way to show off your knitting!
