  • Melissa says

    Whoo-hoo! I’m going through the same frustration as you did trying to find a purse for fall, and I think your design will be perfect!

    Do you have any inside photos?

  • Erin says

    Hey, cute purse pattern, I just may splurge on the yarn to knit it! (High praise from someone with no good yarn in the stash and no cash to fix it! ;) ) How did you get it published? I mean, how did you know about the deadlines and such, because they never posted it last they did for the summer issue, and I had a pattern I wanted to submit…
    Anyway, congratulations! You rock!

  • Anushka says

    The bag is super-cute, congratulations on having it published!

  • Audrey says

    Congratulations Missa. I fell in love with your bag pattern and immediately took the necessary ingredients to whip this lovely bag up. My main colour is a very rich chocolate brown and my contrasting colour is a variegated yarn in hues of cream, rose and chocolate. Mama’s gonna have a brand new bag! Thank you :)

    I absolutely love your pattern, definitely my favourite pattern in this knitty issue. I am defnitely going to make one, and it will be my first time working with tweed, so I’m oh so excited!

  • micah says

    NICE! I reconized the Volvo right away and thought, hmmm I wonder if it’s the same person? Congrats!

  • Audrey says

    I finished my Twiggy Tweed bag and got rave reviews from family and friends. It’s a great pattern, thank you so much for sharing it. You can see my version of the bag on my blog at :
    The only thing I modified is the buttoned closure and the crochet strap, which I made a little longer because I like them so.

  • Deb says

    Wow! Congratulations on being published–it’s a darling bag.

  • Meg says

    Congrats Missa! It looks so great!

  • Roxanne says

    Congrats Missa…that’s really great!

  • Amie says

    Whoo hoo! Congrats!

  • Erin says

    I love the purse pattern. I think it’s even cooler that you modeled it next to your Volvo Coupe. Do you still have 3 volvos? I’m on my second 240, it’s an ’86 sedan with less than 100k miles, but I miss the wagon too much and looking to purchase another. Maybe I’ll even get one with the round headlights.

  • midnight knitter says

    you’re my new best friend, a crafter and a volvo lover as well?!?!?!
    ride that baby out to 300K miles, my last wagon went to 320K before i let her go… all three of my volvos are my best friends ;-) they never let me down, hahah!

  • zanne says

    I found the purse pattern when I was looking for a new purse. Same frustration – can’t stand store purses when I don’t want to spend a ton on one that suits me (most are just too much – ugly as anything). I found yours, picked up red and black wool to match my dress coat (also wool), and am about done with it. I’ll be finishing it tonight so I can start playing with my new recycled silk yarn (woohoo!). Anyhow, thanks for the pattern! I’ll have to check out your store now. :)
