I love to knit, spin, quilt, mach. embroider and in general, anything that has to do with a needle and thread. I love fiber fairs, yarn shops, quilt shops - gets expensive, but I don't have many vices.
We are retired and our home is in Jacksonville, but we spend about half the time in No. Carolina at our cabin there. I love the piecefulness of the mountains, but my 3 children and 8 grandchildren are in FL and so therefore, is my heart.

Betty, I'm glad you have figured things out. I'm an hour past my self-imposed midnight deadline of being off the net, but I couldn't resist answering you tonight. The pattern is not well written for even experienced knitters. Most of us had to read it many times before understanding it. I was trying to figure out how to do the bottom in the round. And so were many others.
Just you so you know what I meant my copying and pasting for next time. First highlight what needs to be copied. One of the easiest ways to to do this is to place your cursor at the beginnind of what you want to copy. Hold down your shift key and at the same time click the right arrow key. This will highlight your text. Once you have it highlighted, hold down your control (ctrl) key and while holding it down hit the C key. This will copy what you highlighted. Next go to where you need to paste. In my notes below it is in the URL (at the top of the internet window that has the address for the site you want to go to. If you click on it, it should highlight the URL. While it is highlighted, hold down the control key and hit the V key. That is the keyboard shortcut for pasting. Then click the go button to the right of the URL. For my go button it is a right arrow. Some actually say GO.
I hope this helps you. We will get you to where you can do things. It takes time and practice and DON'T be afraid of the computer! That is the number one rule! Once you do it over and over, you will become more at ease with it.
Good Luck with the computer and with your Market bag!
Betty, I'm sorry it's taken me so long to get back to you. Here are my pictures of the bottom of the bag: http://community.knitpicks.com/forum/topics/are-you-knitting-the?groupUrl=montavillamarketbagkal&id=1984936%3ATopic%3A74790&groupId=1984936%3AGroup%3A74754&page=17#comments
I hope this helps. Let me know if you need more details. If you do I'll see if I can find a video on it.
Betty, let me wade throught the comments. I know I posted some pictures somewhere. The provisional cast on is so there won't be any bulk on the one side of the bottom. Have you started the bottom? If not, be sure to do a purl row before beginning the woven pattern. There is an errata for this but it's still not clear. Some got frustrated with the provisional cast on and just decided to pick up stitches along that edge. You have to remember that knitting is like practicing law (I'm a lawyer). They call it the "practice" of law because it's always changing. Same with knitting! You have to keep practicing and find the method that is best for you. Many found other methods for the provisional cast on that worked for them. The important thing is to have the bottom as snug as possible. Don't worry about not knowing your way around the site very well. It's a learning curve for all of us. Just take your time. Knitting is supposed to be enjoyable. So ask as many questions as necessary. There is no such thing as a stupid question. That's how we learn. And we don't all learn the same way.
