rely a bit too heavily on alcohol and irony.

Thanks! There are other bag patterns for machines, of course, but I wanted mine in the round so I wouldn't have to seam it. Boo to seaming!  Tongue

I'm from Anchorage, too (born & raised). Nice to see other Alaskans on the boards.  Grin

A picture of Susitna the Mountain

*grins* I took that picture in May during the Alaska Railroad Open House. They do these short (15 minute) free train trips.

Love the bag!

Great pic of Sleeping Lady! Smiley I tried to take one of the mountain for the pattern but the weather hasn't been cooperating - she's either been covered in clouds or smoke from forest fires.  Roll Eyes

That's a great looking bag!  I really like the handle and the overall stitch pattern.  It looks very sturdy, too. 
D'you, uh, think the pattern for this bag can be converted to a hand-knit pattern?  If it's not a pipedream, then I'd like to try adapting it.  (I can't machine-knit and have been looking at bag patterns for a while--yours is one of my favorites.)

Absolutely! It's essentially stockinette knit in the round with dropped stitches, but if done by hand I'd just use sportweight cotton yarn and an enormous circular needle (at least size 12 US, probably). Then at the top, there are about twenty rows without dropped stitches, which would translate into stockinette with tighter gauge. Then you cast off all but twenty stitches. With those twenty stitches, you knit in a round on smaller needles, casting on twenty more so that you're knitting 40 st around. You knit the handle until it's as long as you want, then use three-needle bind-off to attach it to the other side of the bag.

Sorry if that's unclear. I can probably write up a hand knit version but won't have time to do it this week.

Yay, Alaskans!  I'm in the valley.  Smiley

I love that bag.  I've been trying really hard to remember to take bags with me when I go to the store... I need something more like this that could squash small and just hang out in my pocket so I don't have to remember to grab it when I'm heading out.
