Is anyone, has anyone made one of these? I am DYING to try one. I'm taking a vacation coming up and was hoping for some mindless knitting, but I'm a little afraid to start this for that. Will likely stick with 4 Corners collar from Knitter's in Berroco Suede as I have the yarn already.

But I am DROOLING over these bags!! What fun!!

I blog!

Nope, but I've made the boots from the first book. They were fun! The mobius cast-on isn't that difficult once you get the hang of it. I just find that I have to do the cast-on without stopping or I lose the count of where I am.

I made the regular sling bag, and it is very easy and fun. I was a little apprehensive about the waste stitch opening, but it is so cool! All the projects in that book are truly works of art...

I've spoken to my librarian about ordering the 2 books into the system. I will no longer buy anything I haven't seen for myself. Too many disappointments.

Healthy conservatism promotes the continuity of civilization, the importance
of community, the dangers of thoughtless change. It does not, or should not,
assert the right of white, Christian heterosexual males of a certain age to
limit the rights of everyone else. The past 100 years of social history has
been dedicated, on good days, to constraining the dominance of this
minority. Yesterday was a good day: J.Ibbotson, June 29/05, on the passing of the same-sex marriage bill.

I'm stumped. Casting on confuses me. Any advice?

I found that I needed to practice it several times before I got it. It also helped me to do it all at once with no stopping or I would lose count. It's not as hard as it looks once you get going.

Do you have the first book or the second? I don't know what the instructions are like in the second book, but the first one has good step by step pictures.

What are you having trouble with specifically?
