That's what I'm doing, per the modifications in the blog linked in the original post. I'm not sure how tall I'm going to make mine, though. I don't think my yarn would hold up well for the way I treat my bags, so it's sort of practice at this point.

I finished the body of the bag and one handle. Will do the other handle, before I attempt seaming it together. I was using #13 needles for the bag and wanted to use something smaller for the handle. I'm at my parents house tonight and forgot to bring more needles. The best I could dig up here was a size 6. Maybe knitting the handles at a much tighter gauge is not a bad idea. I'll keep you posted!

Might try the next one in the round.

OOoooo - Nice Bag!!! I'm not going to join in at the moment as I have a baby blanket I am focusing on, but maybe later. Can't wait to see how everyone's turns out!

I have some WIP pictures! This goes really fast. I cast on 45 stitches with the turkish cast on and I'm working in the round.

I think I'm on my 3rd? pattern repeat.

Hmmm, usually when I'm knitting a hole means I've done something wrong. How am I supposed to tell if I've done something wrong?

Actually, around the beginning I think i did screw up but I'm not gonna worry too much about it.

Very Cool SandraEllen!

I am going to have to study the Turkish Cast On. I finished my bag yesterday. The seaming was interesting, and I hope it holds! I made the smaller version with two handles. I think it turned out really cute! I'll have to load it up later and take some pics.

And then start another one!

I just stumbled across this KAL this morning, and I thought I'd share a link with you that I used when making my Saturday Market Bag (scroll down a bit).

I did mine in the round with an attached pouch. The modifications can be found here.

I totally screwed up the # of stitches when I picked up around the border of my pouch, and the bag still turned out OK. It's kind of hard to mess this one up, thankfully! ;-)

Oh yeah, and I *LOVE* the Turkish Cast-On!!!

I have a questions for those who seamed up the sides. How did you do it? Did you just use a whipstitch?

A quick trip to Whole Foods and the bag held: a couple of pounds of meat, two dozen eggs, six-pack of ginger ale and some crackers. It was really heavy and I held my breath as I lifted it out of the cart. It stretched a lot, but did not give signs of breaking! Glad I went with short handles.

going to start another one tonight.
