Beautiful! classic, pretty, knitter-ly and very functional. Would make a great bag to tote knitting around, or even to pack small travel extras in style. Love the feet and the wooden handle. I would attach a detachable shoulder strap, though (in addition to the wood handle)- I need to be able to sling the thing over my shoulder most of the time. The button is so pretty. Thanks Interweave for another stylish, classic and unique project!
