Ginormous Knitting

Can you even believe how gigantic the first side of my wobbly tote is? Has anyone else knit this and what did yours look like? I'm knitting at the gauge listed so I assume it's the size it's supposed to be. I'm thinking of mixing up the accent colors for the second side, any suggestions?

I *love* those colors together - honestly, I wouldn't change a thing.

Love it! I think the colors look fantastic. I made a Wobbly Tote with Lamb's Pride Bulky and it's HUGE! I saw Jeanne's at the State Fair and I'd guess hers is at least 1/3 if not 1/2 smaller than mine.

Love the colors! Are you just changing color placement or the actual colors? How much length/width by percentage will it lose when felted? It seems like it will be a great size when done, if you like roomy totes.

Renee's tote was huge! (but great)

What a fun project. Definetly mix up those colors-- you might want to pick a central color (say, hot pink this time) for the largest part of the largest circle, then chose the coordinating circle colors organically-- as they come to you.

Your dog is beautiful! How old is he/she?

Thanks for all your kudos on my wobbly!

Lorraine: I was thinking of just changing color placement. I'm not sure what the percentage of shrinkage will be, I didn't knit & felt a swatch.

Debra: Casey just turned 9 at the beginning of Feb.

All the other totes I have seen were just huge before felted. I bet it will turn our perfect!

Mine was big enough to slip the handle over my neck and be a dress! LOL. I love the colors you chose. Good luck in the felting process!
