Instead, I was feeling the Elisa Nest Tote love. I have converted this pattern to knit in the round, so that there's no purling involved. The original pattern is knitted as one long strip and seamed up both edges, so by changing it I am losing some of it's structural integrity. I hate to lose it, but my hatred for purling wins this round.
p.s. It also fits perfectly into my camouflage motif. It is almost identical in color to our sofa blanket. You know, the one you snuggle on the couch with, eat over and is covered in cat hair? Perfect match.
