Oooooh, I love that bag!! I've been avoiding the new IK so that new patterns wouldn't distract me from ongoing projects...curse you, Cristy, you foul temptress!

And, um, that's a 'yeah, I'll join the KAL' kind of response, in case you weren't sure! I'm imagining mine in some sort of sand/tan/taupe color--perfect for summer (kinda like a straw bag, but not).

YAY!!! I have a knit along!

Angelia--that's the same color I was going to try--I have a million skeins of Elsabeth Lavold's Cotton Patine that I bought to make a sweater and never got around to--I think it'll be perfect. It's sort of a sand/beige color. I actually want to make two so I'm trying to decide on a second color as well.

I have all of my stuff ready and will probably cast on later today or tomorrow morning--you guys get your stuff and let me know when you've started.

Feminine_earth--I don't know if Joann's sells IK--I got mine at Borders. I know most of the "large" bookstores carry it so I'd check there. I may go to Joann's today or tomorrow so I'll look if I think about it and let you know.

I just got that new IK yesterday, and the whole time I was thinking of making that bag (probably in the same color). I think I'll start once I finish my yet to cast on socks

Ok, so I went to my Joann's last night, and didn't see any IKs...so I asked the cashier lady if they sell them and she said, "I have no idea."

Right, good thing you don't work there, lady.

So I went to Books a Million and bought it!! There are so many nice patterns in this magazine! I'm so excited!!

What yarn are you guys using for the tote? I can't wait to get started.

I'm just about to cast on--a day later than I wanted to but better late than never!

I agree, there are tons of great patterns in this issue--I will probably tackle one or two of the sweaters too (and aren't those interlac socks just awesome!!) but I've gotta get this bag finished up for my sil's birthday.

I was planning to use some Elsebeth Lavold Cotton Patine that I have until I pulled it out and discovered it's dk weight and the pattern calls for worsted....now I'm not sure what to do which is sad b/c I really wanted to have already cast on...

What are you going to use?? I'm trying to think of what I can pick up quick that will work well--of course anyone can get peaches n cream but I was hoping to use something a little nicer...I can get Lion Cotton quick but I've never used it...any ideas??

Anyway--I'm glad you found the IK and please post once you've cast on to let me/us know how it's going.

Cristy, believe it or not, I'm actually thinking about using Sugar 'n Cream. Bad Missy, I know! But, it's durable, cheap, and comes in so many nice colors! I'm gonna go to Joann's this Friday and see what they have...if the Lion brand cotton is nicer though, then I'll probably go with that instead.
