I wanted something practical that I can gift. The pattern is not complicated to follow and the trickiest part is stitching up the bag. It was my first time using interchangeable needles -- the pattern did not call for it but I chose to use interchangeable ones. I wasn't keen on the needles unscrewing themselves but I liked the advantages -- that you can lock them in on the cable and have multiple projects going on at the same time.

Over a couple of months, I've been knitting on-and-off and finally the end result:
If there's one thing I'd go back and fix up, it'd be the handles. It is quite thin, and I messed up a bit. Nevertheless, I'm pretty proud of it as it is the first time I've knitted a bag. Overall, the pattern isn't too difficult but I'd probably say this is good for an advanced beginner.
