Himalaya Tote

This is a quick project. It is made from Himalaya Recycled Silk yarn.

The yarn - hmmm... very beautiful, but a little fussy. It is over spun in several places. So I am constantly letting my ball hang to unspin the kinks out. Fortunately the pattern is very easy so fiddling with the yarn isn't too bad. Also the yarn has a lot of joined sections. Pretty annoying when the skeins are only 80 yards.

I have the front done. After the sides and back are completed, I have to make a lining for it.
