so i am knittin up one of these cute girls, and am wondering about the "knit til sides measure 10 inches" thing...  is it 10 inches from the middle of the bag bottom (aka bag folded in half) or is it 10 inches from where the side seam meets the bag bottom?

also, some people here have said that 10 inches was too much (CC should be added sooner) and some have said 10 inches wasn't long enough...

any advice so that i can learn from your wisdom??

much thanks.

I measured from where the bottom (the garter stitch stuff) meets the sides (the stockinette stitch stuff). The bag is really forgiving as far as the ten inch measurement is concerned. I just knit as long as I wanted (I think about ten inches) and added about three more rows of the CC until I was satisfied with that before I made the handles. It really is a truly forgiving pattern and so much fun when you felt it.

Cheers,
Jill

greenchick--- you weren't kidding when you said it was forgiving.  although it smells like bigfoot's armpit at the moment, i am in love!! wooo hooo.... felting rocks.

on the CC i threw in a strand of this sparkly stuff and i absolutely love it.  the zippered pillowcase thing did the trick in 10 minutes flat.  wow!!!  although with my obsessive tendencies, i must admit i opened the washer about 6 times to check and see how it was coming.  

Look-- i put it on my bed to get a good pic and my kitty, Binks just couldn't stop nosing at it.

I, too, made the Marsupial Tote.  But minus the marsupial.  I didn't make the little pouchie guy.  I'm wishing that I had now, because this thing eats keys and lip gloss.

I started knitting on New Year's Day and LOVE it so far.  I've only made a few things (normal run-of-the-mill newbie stuff).  This is my favorite completed project thus far.  It's going to be tough to beat.  It was my first circular knitting project as well, and I don't think I'll ever go back to straight needles again!

I just got the book 2 weeks ago. I made some modified wristbands for a friend already and now I am making the Felted Marsupial Tote. If all things go well I should be done knitting it today. I love how it knits up so fastly and easily!

I couldn't find any Lamb's Pride at the LYS that I prefer so I am using a different type of wool. It has no mohair in it but my test swatch was VERY hairy when I took it out of the washer.

Here are my Marsupial Totes!



The one on the left was only my second knitting project. I have been crocheting for a long time though, so I'm not really a newbie to yarn. It's made with Lamb's Pride in Aztec Turquoise & Limeade and it was inspired by Daria's bag earlier in this thread. I love it.

The second bag was made on smaller needles with Rowan Magpie. I help two different colors together for the bottom to get the speckled look. The colors were blue & green.

I've also made a scarf and an iPod cozy that I need to sew and felt. I'm working on a second scarf and waiting for some wool to be sent to me from America to start on another bag, the Fiona. The free pattern can be found here http://bruxknits.motime.com/

Just wanted to say thanks for all of your pictures and inspirations too. This place has really got me motivated.

I love the speckled effect! I'm really jealous at how smooth and non-fuzzy your bags turned out. Great job!

Hehe, I was actually hoping that my bags would be a bit fuzzier when I felted them.

I only ran each one through one wash cycle and used differnt types of yarn for each, both came out fairly similiar. I'd be interested to know how many times people ran theirs through?

Next time I felt something I'm going to run it through two cycles and see what happens.
