Wow, you lot are so clever, I love all of the bags.
I got the book the other day and have such a long list of things i want to knit now. (don't think i'll get much sewing done anymore)

I think i'm going to try this one out for SIL's birthday

Hey everyone,
This is my first post.  I've been lurking around here for a while as a guest. I just love all of the projects everyone has to contribute to this site.  I knew I had to take a part in all this.  

Here is the marsupial tote I finished recently.  I have more projects on the way.  Until then. . .

i'm in the middle of this project and have come up against something of a problem.  

okay, i am knitting the main body of the bag in the round, everthing fine, lalala.  after several inches (six?) i notice that there are no longer knit stitches on the outside of my bag.  now there are purls.  i think i must've inverted the bag when i came back to knitting it after a break.  ok, fine.  i don't mind at all the way it looks, but i wonder if it's going to effect the way the rest of the work goes.  i mean, the bag kinda turns inwards now, and i am worried that the handles might end up sitting at a weird and or if i will have to figure out how to adapt the pattern from here on out.

i don't even know if my question is making any sense.  i'm sure it's obvious, but i am scarves-and-washcloths new to knitting.

Hey, I appreciate it!  Thanks!

Yeah, sure did. I used the colors "Limeade" and "Aztec Turquoise."

Geez, could the pic I posted be any bigger?!  I have to remember to edit the size of my pics from now on.

i lurve this pattern
but, i'm vegan -- anyone know of any non-animal yarns that'll felt so i can get a sturdy and stylish marsupian tote?  or are there any other ways to make it so sturdy without felting?

Generally you have to use animal fibers to felt - the felting happens because of the structure of the fiber.

But I found this link http://thebellwether.site.yahoo.net/sofekit.html and supposedly this company
www.soysilk.com makes a soy based yarn you can felt.  Maybe if you contact them they can give you more info

I would say as long as you're not using silk it should count as vegan. For the record, sheep are very, very, very, very well kept because ill sheep=bad wool=no profit. And far more birds die for a bale of cotton than one of wool.


That said, the only thing I've heard of is the soysilk, and I'm not really sure how well that would work.

It is very easy. All you need to know is referenced in the book.  This was my first circular needle project.
Have fun!
