Yup, this is a KAL for the bag featured in the newest email from Knitting Daily. I've started it with a few adjustments to the needle size and yarn weight and it's looking lovely. Anyone care to knit it with me? Since I'm apparently a lot slower at knitting I KNOW you all could catch up to me!

I saw that an liked it, but cannot get past the part of my brain that keeps saying "What a waste of a perfectly good knitting needle" Laughing

Dur! Thanks Kathryn, I forgot to put the pattern down, how silly. *Slaps her forehead*

I hope that someone likes this as much as me and wants to do it. It's really easy. I don't know how it's easy todo the P3tog because I've tried it before and it didn't go well but...I'm doing it and am 3 repeats in and it looks LOVELY!

Not totally nonny, you can always reuse the needle when you are done with the bag. Just gotta sand off the teeny tiny bit of glue that is on it holding the stitches on or even possibly use a stopper instead of glue...I was thinking about maybe using those spring looking clover needle holders at the ends because they are in bright colors that would look good with the color of the bag that I chose. I haven't totally decided yet. I have a set of bamboos that I bought that I really liked at the time but decided they aren't what I want and now only really use my Knitpicks options so I'm going to put them to good use instead of letting them sit. Once the bag is old or ugly I will probably design my own pattern the same way and put the needles back in that bag and keep it going because it's so neat looking. I would think you could also use the metal Boye needles that are about 1.00 at walmart. Just wouldn't hold the glu e well so you would have to use the clover needle holder coils.

Just looked at this, what a nice bag.

A_nony_mouse you could alway just cast off instead of leaving needles there. Or thread a nice ribbon or i-cord through.

You could use a dowel, and put some beads at both ends... or sharpen one end to mimic a knitting needle...

lol, I totally plan to use an old pair that I didn't like in the first place. I got them as a set on ebay and they were hand made bamboos and they just weren't all that great. Some weren't the size they were supposed to be when put in a needle sizer even. I guess I'm just totally ready to give up on them and start something else. I don't want them to sit around my house if I wont be using them so I'll make them into a bag for me and another 2-3 pairs for bags for Christmas if this one turns out really good. It's super easy and a really quick knit so I'm excited. I can't wait until someone joins me Smile

Sounds good knitty. I will still be knitting it once you are done with your forest canopy because I'm a slow knitter, lol.

Just finished the back and now about to work the front...or maybe I finished the front and about to do the back, who knows, LOL.

Either way I have to make another piece then do straps and, since I want to use it as a purse and don't want my things to fall out, I'm going to have a neighbor help me line it. Getting some cheap fabric from walmart in a contrasting color to do it in. WOOHOO.
