When I suddenly realized that I don't have a secret pet snake to wear the snake sweater, I decided to use it for the sides, bottom, and handle of my Wobbly Tote!! Ingenious! I had knit it with random striping and stitched down one side across the bottom and up the other side of one rectangle. Then I added the second rectangle and did the same to form the tote. I didn't bind off and left a knitting needle on one end in case I needed to lengthen the strap.
Here it is resting on the hammock after it's birthing. I think it looks like a sad face with a green mole!
After felting, Wobbly is looking happier---although this is the other side of the tote! I used Lamb's Pride bulky and a size 10 1/2 needle. I discovered that I do prefer working with Jo Sharp wool over Lamb's Pride. I used Jo Sharp on the mitered bag that I felted and found it much easier to work with as well as being gentler on the hands.
Happiness is a finished Wobbly Tote! I'm adding industrial strength hook-and-loop for a closure, then sending it off to my sister in San Francisco.
The Lord is not slow about His promise, as some count slowness, but is patient toward you . . .
