Can you get the Fall 2007 issue of Knit Simple anywhere? The directions are in it. I just picked it up a few days ago, finally last night sat down to look thru it - I saw the purse and just knew it was the one you were talking about. I'd offer mine to you, but there is a cable vest in it I think I'm going to make soon. Besides, you can probably pick it up cheaper w/a coupon and not have to pay postage.
