  1. From the picture the bottom looks like it increases on both sides, but the pattern says to increase, knit around to last 2 stitches and increase again. My "Must be Symmetrical" way of thinking is arguing with "Just Trust the Pattern!" common sense. So, trust the pattern?

    (I'm starting out on DPN's and thinking like doing socks or mittens is probably why knitting half way around and increasing seems expected!)

  3. Finally got outside to take a few pictures of my finished bag yesterday. Wind was still gusting 20-30 MPH so hanging it from the birch trees I tried for the back drop was interesting experience :) Thank you for the pattern!

  4. I wish I could make this stuff, but I still can't get past the chain crochet. And I'm more a drawing/painting type than a crafter. I would have to pay someone to make it for me. I really do like the bag.

  5. Sis, did I ever tell you that I use this bag for a crochet project? I'm working the "Neverending Granny Square" by Mikey Sellick. You keep all the colors going around and around and MUST keep them from tangling. I put my skeins in this bag and fed the yarn through different 'holes' in the mesh area. The yarn feeds perfectly and I rarely get them tangled. And when they do, it's easy to correct.
