Did you know it is Police Week? Originally designated by JFK, it has evolved over time to honor those who serve and protect. To help support this recognition, let's take a look at this large project tote featuring a famous Police Box. Measuring 8" x 4.5" at the base and and standing 11.25" tall, this is generously sized. With two interfacings, it is slightly padded and can stand on it's own. A wrist strap makes it easy to grab and go.

My January 2019 @knitcrate Membership Crate arrived yesterday and it was literally bursting at the seams with yarn! They had to use extra-strong tape to keep it shut. This month’s yarn is Vidalana Ambient Worsted (100% Peruvian Highland Wool) and I received the Dawn Blush colorway. It’s a beautiful color for Valentine’s knitting. Thumbing through the included Inspirations booklet, I was drawn to the page dedicated to a short discussion of breed-specific wool. Do you want to receive a surprise package of yarn and inspiration every month? Sign up for your own subscription using the affiliate link in my IG profile! Even better, use the code KD20 when you check out in order to get 20% your first month in an an ongoing subscription. #ad #knitting #knittersofinstagram #unravelyourknitcrate
