Here is the tote bag. The first new thing I learned was picking up stitches from the side. I cast on 16 stitches and knit garter stitch for 44 rows. Here is a picture of picking up on the first side.
I had 22 stitches to pick up. I got these between the rows created by the garter stitch.


Then I picked up 16 stitches from the bottom.
This is a bit more difficult so I used a dpl pointed
needle and then slipped the stiches onto the circular.


You can see here what it looks like after I slipped the stiches
onto the circulars.


Now I picked up 22 stitches from the other side
and slipped the 16 stitches from the other needle onto it
and started knitting in the round. you can see from this picture why
I had to slip the stiches.
