It's not that I can't sew... I'm actually not too bad if I put my mind to it.  Instead, you could classify my problem as dinner-table-itis.  Meaning if I can't finish by dinner time or don't have a really good reason, I probably shouldn't haul out the sewing paraphernalia.  Unfortunately, a pretty little handbag doesn't fit into my schedule right now and it's not a good reason to prevent us from dining at the kitchen table.    C'est la vie.  

However, a few minutes of knitting now and then, does fit into my schedule.  Yes, it probably would have been faster to simply get out my sewing machine to make Made By Rae's Buttercup bag, but I just can't resist a knitting pattern challenge.  

Here's the results...

Filled, hanging, More Accurate color

Flat, Colors washed out with the flash

Pop out to my blog for full instructions on how to make the bag or add it to your queue at Ravelry

That bag is adorable! I love knit bags (but I cant knit).  Great job (I dont understand a word of the tute, but refer back to the "I cant knit" for the reason  Cheesy )

Knitting in the round is really quite easy. 

The trick I use to keep everything neat as I'm changing needles or joining is to pull the first stitch tight to the needle.  Other than that, it's just knitting.

Thanks for the tip! I am going to ask my knitting instructor to show me how to knit in the round. I'd love to try out your pattern one day  Smiley
