Since I got the OK I here by present

Pipes and Braid :) Yes I am that scary scary secret testknitter of this bag!

yarn: Østlandsgarn from Gjestal
pattern: Pipes and braid from She-knits for knitters.
Needles: 7 mm.
Information: I used double østlandsgarn and 7 mm needles on everything.

*edited to add: When flat the bag measures 25 cm i height and 33 cm on the widest part of the body. Østlandsgarn equals sportweight yarn suitable for 3,5 - 4 mm needles according to the band around the ball and is 23 stithes pr 4 inch in gauge*

Great looking bag. I've been "talking" with Sharon about that pattern, and am happy to see it again.

Would you mind posting what size your bag finished since you used a lighter weight yarn than Sharon did in the original version?

Gorgeous Silja. Thanks for knitting so fast so that Sharon can get the pattern out for the rest of us.
