I AM IN LOVE. AKA - Has anyone made the Monk Travel Satchel
Look at this cool knitted bag :

http://www.interweave.com/knit/books...agsExcerpt.pdf

I love the way this bag looks!!

I was wondering if anyone had made it. If so, any thoughts?

It looks really floppy... maybe an insert for the bottom would help? Lots of bags that size are kinda floppy though.

Would love to hear from anyone who's made it! I found the pattern while browsing around the Knitter's Review site and no one there had finished it yet.[/img]

I have the book, but haven't made any of the bags in it (I love knitting books )! But, this is one that I really want..I like it!! Actually, it was from one of the bags in this book that I learned to do the loopy st on my socks

If you go to this page :

http://www.interweave.com/knit/projects/bags.asp

and scroll down, you'll see the listing for the Monk's Travel Satchel, and it has a picture preview.

One of the guys around here made that bag. Cannot remember who, but I have it in my saved files too. I think it was either Norman or Rorshach who made it. They both have blogs if you want to hound them
