Enough to make a pearl

I figured that others would be completing items from the mag so why not create a thread for it. I worked on the Colorsplash Handbag while on a trip to Ohio for a friend's wedding last weekend. It was a really quick project, but one that required me to crochet by touch and not sight. The Lion Brand yarn (can't remember the exact name, but it is new) is so dense when you work with it that it is easy to lose sight (or touch) of the stitches. That being said, I am sure that there were many double stitches or skipped loops, but the outcome was fairly nice. I totally fudged that part about attaching the casing, but it still turned out fine. I can't wait to see what other people come up with.

That's the bag I'm planning to make but have to wait for the yarn as LYS does not have it. I have no idea where to get the oval handles. Anything else I should be aware of before I start crocheting this project? Oh, did you line the bag or is it dense enough not to need lining?

It's pretty dense, but you might want to line it. The handles I found at a local craft store (they have everything if you are willing to look) and the yarn I bought at AC Moore. Just be forewarned that you truly crochet by touch on this project and don't be afraid to fudge it here and there.

So, I was just wondering what projects they have in the magazine.  I went to their website but it doesn't give you any idea what's in it.  You'd think they would to encourage people to buy it by showing them what awesome stuff they have.  I've been to different stores where I live and can't seem to find one.  So, I may just have to order it online.
