Skull & Crossbones Tote

Every knitter should have a bit of the ol' Pirate spirit with her, right? So I was really excited when I saw the Skull & Crossbones tote bag pattern on a while back and ordered some Virgin Wool just for the project, and finally got to it this past week.

I started while at my parents house this past weekend, but left the Oh-So-Scary Intarsia work for Wednesday. I am happy to say that I have intarsia-ed without major injury or hairloss and feel all the better for it now.

I think the true test will be how well it holds up when I felt it tonight! I'm a little worried about some of those twisted and stranded colors showing through to the other side when it's felted, but no use worrying until there's actually a problem, right?

I'll keep you updated!
