I realize that I was probably never part of this knitalong, but I did finish the bag back in April, so I thought I'd provide some encouragement to those still working on it:
I forgot to decrease the top and add a buttonhole, but I like it anyway. It's made out of Plymouth Encore, double stranded. I gave it to a friend who loved it, so I don't have any other pictures of it.
Good luck to the rest of you with your bags!
