Question- I'm making the bag right now. I'm debating about the little pouch part. How in the world do you attach the snap? If anyone has a closeup of the snap I would LOVE to see it.

Golly, am I the only one who had issues with this pattern?  I was knitting to gauge  but I ended up having to change 95% of the directions because the dimensions did not come out the same.  The bottom would have been waaaay too small and the second color was not added on soon enough.  In the pic, it looks like the CC is about half of the purse height, but the directions had you adding on later than halfway.  Still, my purse turned out fine and I like it even better  Roll Eyes

teehee, thank you!  Grin I used Lamb's Pride Worsted in Oregeno for the top part and Amythest for the bottom.  They look kinda dull right here but the purple is gorgeous in real life!

i got these at joanne fabrics, i think $2.50 or so for a card of 4. these are size #4. not really the prettiest option in my opinion.  i think the button & loop closure as pictured above is much nicer

That would be my marker, how do I get rid of it?  Do I start knitting it in or what?  If I slip this it's going to look pretty funky.  Plus, I've went and right twisted on both sides of the marker, on the two before and the two after, can I leave this, or should I frog, *plse don't say frog* back to the picked up stitches?  Will it ruin the look if I leave them in.  Help would be appreciated, I'm stalled until I get an answer.

If I'm not mistaken, the marker is threaded on the yarn in the picture, right?  Well, if you don't want to frog to take out out, I think that you might need to cut it out with scissors or something like that.  The marker is supposed to be free and you should be able to take it off the one side of the circular and put it on to the other side when you come to it.  I think that part of the problem is that you did the right twist on both sides of the marker, which resulted in it getting threaded on the yarn (maybe?).  Instead, need to just do the twist two stitches before the marker, slip the marker, and continue.  I hope this makes sense Tongue

Ugh - yes, this was totally unclear to me from every description I read about markers.  The stitch marker goes on the needle, not on the yarn, and you move it from needle to needle as you knit.

You'll either have to (sorry!) frog back, or break/cut/snap the ring (that would be my choice!).  I've found that you can cut through some interesting stuff with toenail clippers Smiley

Wow, do they always felt with those cool wavy fibers hanging out? I've only felted with kureyon, and it's much "flatter" looking.

LAWebChick -

Thanks, that's exactly what I needed to know, I did end up frogging back before I learned this cause I figured I had to start over, but just back to the picked up stitches.  Now I can start anew.
