Not only do I like the bag (and many of your other finished projects), but your comments are very educational, inspiring and encouraging. Thank You!

Your bag is splendid and the handle is perfect, it compliments and finishes your knitting so nicely. It's difficult to see, so...I was wondering...could you tell us about it and where we might purchase it?

Hi MomGrandma, boy that is a tough question. I got the handle at RAFT which is a discount-price resource for teachers here near San Francisco. I'm not sure where you would get one like it... I just checked on Etsy, here is a link to a similar one: http://www.etsy.com/listing/88833181/purse-n-alize-it-handbag-handles-wood?ga_search_query=purse-n-alize%2Bit&ga_search_type=user_shop_ttt_id_5946104 Now that I think of it, you could also just thread wooden beads on a coat hanger, make two ovals of this, and that would be really similar too! Good luck! (BTW the bag is crochet.... : ) )
