apandalee, I'm not sure that I understand your question...if you're copying the cabled handbag, and you're attaching handles:

straight/"knitting needle" style handles - can either be sewn on, or slipped through the stitches like real needles
round/bangle handles - sew these on

If you're pretty comfortable with knitting already, I'd say go to SnBN simply because it has more patterns in it than the original SnB.

Why not use the dowel knitting needle tutorial right here in the knitting forum?

As AWynkoop suggested, I have some dowels that are the perfect size for a pencil sharpener.  You might have to sand afterwards to get the pencil graphite off of the dowel if your sharpener has been used before.

katymcf, are you asking about the thread showing through the front of the bag?  Or you just don't like the look of the thread showing at all?  If you're talking about the thread showing through the outside, you don't need to pull the thread all the way through the knitting.  You can just catch the needle through the fibers in the yarn and it will hold just fine.  I used a whipstitch to sew my lining into place.  If you're bothered by the thread showing when you're looking at the lining (inside the bag), you can practice making very, very small stitches.  My mom makes the tiniest stitches when she hems, but I'm so terrible at it.

littleone, I think most of us are working from our own patterns.  There should be a link to a pattern just 1 or 2 pages back.

Two strands of Simply Soft is perfect for 10.5 needles, for anybody wondering. Smiley

Thanks for the link, AWynkoop!  I like that site already.  I started on the papaya purse last night, but I didn't do the cables in a rib.  It's looking alright, but not as dramatic as I'd hoped -- maybe I'll try a thinner, more luxurious yarn next time that will better show that cable pattern.

We had company over at our house last night, including a 6 year old girl who watched me knit and asked questions.  Very nice. Smiley

Heh, how resourceful are we?

I still have to finish my mom's bag, which will be tan, possibly with a green fabric with small white floral print as the lining.  I've been slacking on finishing it up but all I have left is to make the lining and sew it in, and then put on the handles.

I want to make another cabled bag in some Papaya colored yarn that I have (also Simply Soft) but with this pattern:

I just don't know if I want to go with bamboo handles again, or do something else.  Any suggestions?

Okay guys, here's a thread with an article about how Abercrombie was selling a copy of MN's bag:

There's also a pic of the SATC bag I'd seen -- sorry, I was wrong, it isn't cabled.  Evidently, that bag is made by Christina Caruso.  The only picture of a bag I could find by that designer is here:

So yeah, as butterlite and urbanlatinfemale were saying, there seems to a design history to these dear MN bags. Smiley
