i had some logistical problems with the drawstring purse. i only have 29" circulars, but the pattern calls for 24". i thought i could wing it anyway.....NOT. i could've waited to the following day, buy another circular and continue as normal...but nooooo. instead i simply cast on many, many additional stitches to accomodate the extra length of the circular. this bag is gonna be huge. (next time i'll use the proper tools).
