I tend to carry around a lot of heavy stuff and don't trust a knitted shoulder strap to do the trick. Yes, I could've picked up some of the prefab handles they sell at my LYS, but I haven't found any that I really like.
And then I went to the New York State Sheep and Wool Festival and discovered Homestead Heirlooms. I like their beautiful and entirely tote-worthy leather handles.
For readers west of the Mississippi, consider a road trip to Farmington, New Mexico, for the Best of the Southwest Fiber Arts Festival. The event, held November 10 and 11, spans all the fiber arts, from knitting and spinning to quilting, weaving, felting, and crocheting.
