See your top picture? That has the needle tips at the top and if you look, I bet you find your yarn coming off the right needle to your skein. That's the position to knit in and you can certainly try it that way. If it's too difficult, then turn it around and do it the other way.

Ok ... so which position is right? I'm becoming really anal about this bag!! The right side out is more comfortable than the other because the stitches on the needles aren't "folded under" ....

If your working yarn was on your right needle working inside out, it will be on your right needle even after you turn it right side out - your pic 042 clearly shows the working yarn coming from the last stitch on the right needle. If you turn the bag in that pic around 180 degrees, you're in the position to knit and the yarn is ready to go on the right side.

Attempting to finish the bag ... whether it be inside out or not ...

Knit three inches. Set up round: *K10, place blue marker, K30, place blue marker, K10, repeat from *
Continue with the random purls, one per marked section, and at the same time begin decrease for bottom.

Decrease:
*K10, slip marker, slip two stitches as if to knit one at a time, insert LH needle into front of sts from left to right and knit these two sts together (ssk). Knit to two sts before next marker, K2tog, K10, then repeat from *. Continue until there are ten sts between each marker.

So, does this mean to k10, move your marker to other needle, slip two st to the other needle without doing anything with them, put your LH needle through into the two st you took off, and K them together so you now have ONE st on the needle?

So never mind if the bag is inside or right side out?

Correct. The SSK decrease slants the opposite direction from the k2tog.

And you can knit inside out/outside in whichever you want. If the decreases make the circumference too small, you may want to flip it around so you're knitting on the outside. Whichever way you're most comfortable.

So I gather that since you are decreasing so infrequently that the bag just gradually gets longer as it tapers inward towards a bottom of some sort?

Yes. It looks like you dec on the wide front/back only until it's the same width as the sides. Then you'll finish up for the bottom.
