Well, this is what it looks like from a distance:
This is actually made in one piece. The stitch pattern is a [k1, wyif sl1] over an odd number of stiches. The handles were attached while I was binding off. I am thinking that it is going to be a little summer/spring bag that I take with me to the pool or something like that. The yarn is called Groovy. I forgot who makes it, but it was purchased at my LYS. This is the yarn that inspired me to attempt this. Reason being that for the amount that I paid at my LYS, I could get about eight times as much by doing it myself. And you know what, I am thrifty like that.
