May Giveaway Day!

...so...y'all already know I'm addicted to totes...

...and today I'm going to be giving one away...

...it's a handknit tote - in reverse stockinette stitch...with a braided I-cord strap...

...but it's fully reversible if you prefer the smooth side (normally the front) of the stockinette stitch...

...it has (on the reverse St St side) a handmade button...

...and a super neat crocheted seam...complete with tassels...

...it will easily accommodate a full sized laptop...

...or your latest knitting project...

...or your latest books...

...or use it as a diaper bag for all your babe's things...

...or as a quiet bag - with everything to keep an older child occupied and happy...

...so there you have my humble little tote...

If you'd like to give it a new home just:

1) Leave a comment below:
