Oh boy, I have successfully avoided all CALs so far this year and now you go and post this one! I have baby things to make for a granddaughter due to be born in July! What are you doing to me! :eek I've never made a tote before, but Sue's beautiful tote's keep calling my name. They are just gorgeous! Oh, what to do?:think There is no deadline, right? :devil I'll see if I can decide on a pattern and if I have enough yarn in my stash! I need something easy to start! :hook

I'm joining! :D I have an idea for a tote, but I don't know what colors I'll be using yet. Probably just an extra skein that's taking up to much space! :P

Ann- I am making baby blankets for my first grandson-to-be due in August and for my step-grandson-to-be due in July- and then I just had to make the tote!! So we can commiserate together on how we are being totally distracted from what we should be working on! The StashBuster tote was so much fun and so easy to make!!!

My vote is purple at the bottom and red at the top :yes I feel like it would look 'top heavy' with the darker colors at the top :think

Here are the ones I've made so far and I got one more done that i havent taken a photo of yet so will leave that one with the more to come...

 

I love this pattern...

The first photo of the red one was the one i did to test the pattern for Sue.

Then the blue i made with magic yarn balls, and blue as main color...
