Well after all this scheming and dreaming (YES, last night as I was trying to :zzz: ), I realized that there was NO WAY I would be able to pick up stitches around such a long skinny rectangle and work in the round. It was just physically impossible. So I'm back to doing this as per the pattern (ie. not in the round :( ) but I think I will still try my hand at a bit of intarsia by adding a skinny stripe down the middles of the side panels. Of course it will be done flat, which may be better to practise that way anyhow.

Thanks again Ingrid, I'm sure I'll use the other method someday too, just not on this project unfortunately.

Yeah, I guess when you do something "in the round," it should be kind of roundish. Actually, it gave me something to ponder over and figure out, something I'm sure will come in handy in the future.

I've changed my mind........AGAIN........ :rollseyes:

I'm going to do a CABLE strip down each side of the bag - my first cable attempt! I'm doing it on 18 stitches so it is only about 2" wide which is perfect for this bag. I have about 6 'twists' done and it looks great!! AND not as tricky as I expected it to be.

Sounds like a GREAT idea! Cables are no sweat--my biggest problem is remembering to do the next one on time.

:XX: I see you, knitting your bag!
