I saw this bag a while ago and loved it.
I'd love to make but I've never done circulars before... Undecided plus I have some other things I should finish.
I'll be watching though!

If you go back to the first message, you can find a picture of both versions of the bag, and their links  Grin
OK, I got some more done (yeah, i'm not really doing what I SHOULD be doing with my time).

I've got some weird acrylic tweedy stuff that I think would be just perfect for this bag. My only question is what size needles am I supposed to be using? I realize size 8, but what length of circs?

Oh, I so want to do this one...gotta get the yarn for it, though. Maybe a nice brown or dark purple. Something.

dollface, I'm following the pattern with the suggested 140 sts. per round for the main body of the purse and I'm pretty close to the gauge given in the pattern too.  I'm using U.S. size 8 (5 mm.) in a 20 inch length (50 cm.).  The needle length is working out well for me.  I'm looking fwd to seeing your tweedy yarn.

knittyknitter, how many stitches are you working in a round?  What did you mean when you said that you "expanded the cable mode"?  It looks like you've still got 6 st. cables, but you may have decreased the number of purl sts. in between each cable.  Since you're knitting yours up so quickly, I can't wait to see how you finish the top of yours.  It looks great so far.
I'm not so sure that I want to make the same button closure as in the original pattern, so I'm hoping that by the time I get there, I'll have an idea I like better.

oh~!  That is so pretty!   Shocked  and I have never seen that site before, it is fabulous!  I don't think my knitting is good enough to make that bag just yet, but I'm excited to see what the rest of y'all make!

oh tomorrow i will go see the yarn market and i will try to choose something for the second pattern. i might do the straps and the top parts in moss stitch instead of purls, shorten the straps to fit the shoulders (winter time and messenger bags dont go along that much) and use the buttons only for embellish have another way for closure to make things fast. i might have to find some water proof kinda lining fabric for this though..

tinybits, I'm planning to do my straps in moss st. as well.  Hopefully they won't stretch as much as in garter st.  I agree with you that the buttons would look nice as an embellishment, but I don't want to undo 3 buttons every time I want to get into my bag and then do all 3 of them up again.  I may use a magnetic snap closure or add a zipper to the lining fabric.

superduper, garnstudio is amazing!  I love it when you come across a new site like that!
