So here's the first part of mine.... I'm using a double strand of the Berroco Ultra Alpaca as recommended.  I hardly ever use the recommended yarn for a project, but I LOVE the color and the yarn is very yummy! 
I love what everyone has done with theirs.  I was thinking of using a hidden clasp on the inside, and still using a button for decoration outside.  Or maybe a zipper... still no sure yet. 
As far as the handle goes, I'll look around and see if I can find something, but I'll probably order one from MJTrim.

wow... everyone is getting such great stuff! 
I was so happy to come home late tonight and find my package from Calebsmama waiting for me! 
Inside was a great embroidered bag with crocheted blossoms on it

as well as a cute little notebook with some cherry blossoms, and a cute redesigned Altoid tin, with 6 beautiful stitch markers inside.  The top of the tin looks like sushi rolls!  very cute!!


Thanks for being my first Craftster swap partner Calebsmama!

So I've been feverishly knitting away on this the last couple of days, and I thought it was coming along pretty nice... but then I tried it on.  It seems to fit perfectly in the back:

but then in the front, its way too baggy!

I did do one set of the short rows.  I think I'll be frogging and then going down one more size and omitting the short rows.  I'm worried that the back won't fit right, though.   Undecided
Thoughts??  Huh

Oh, BTW... I am using KnitPicks Shine Worsted in Watermelon... I LOVE this color!
