I knit a purse for one of my friends. I decided on using only one handle. Any comments/suggestions?

I love how the yarn made a kind of zig zag pattern.  Very pretty.  Did you use a pattern or do it free form?  I've been temped to use only one handle before but I don't know how it would work.  Is it easy to get in and out of?  I'm assuming you attached one side of the handle to each side of the bag?  Very cute...nice job!!

I love the classic shape. Did you use any kind of internal shaping (boning, etc)?

That's a very cute bag.
I love the colors of the yarn and the shape of the bag.
On handle might work, if the opening of the bag is wide enough.
Did you line the bag?

Thanks for all the lovely comments.  This was my first post, so I was a little nervous.  I did follow a pattern though I altered it a bit. I used some sort of sock wool.  I ended up linining it because it was too thin and shapeless otherwise.  The opening was large enough with just the one handle.  I had two handles first, and they seemed to get in the way.
