Hell is

408 rows of stockinette.

Not even halfway there.

I'm currently knitting the gusset for the Tote 'Em bag from the Fall '06 issue of knitters. I've finished the first side, but after holding it up next to Gina's I think it's about a third too small. I hope it comes out okay since it's going to be a gift.

Here's the front panel.


This part was fun and I'm looking forward the the second side, if I ever finish the gusset.

Here's what it's supposed to look like after felting:


The pattern calls for i-cord handles, but after knitting all that stockinette for the gusset well, I'm rethinking my options.
