FO: Wine Tote

I love my wine... and sometimes I am forced by social convention to share a bottle or two when I visit other people's houses...  but I had no cute way to transport the wine that I share, which was something that had to be remedied!  Enter: the crocheted wine tote.  I discovered this pattern on Pinterest and it was one of those things I instantly knew that I had to do!  (Unlike the other 6,256 things I have pinned that I will probably never do....)  It was a semi-frustrating project for me, but, in the end, I'm happy with how it turned out and I can't wait until the next time I need to tote some wine over to a friend's house!
