I would have titled this another happy dance but really I have no good excuse why I didn't do this a while ago. I got the brilliant idea to make I-cord on my 0000 needles for a strap on this, which was a good idea in theory until you have to knit 36 inches of I-cord on those bitty needles. It was cast aside as I really wanted to do something different for the strap but couldn't decide what, and I completely hated the beads that came to embellish it. Last night I finally made the decision a twisted cord would work, I just made it thinner than most so it didn't look too heavy with the bag. Overall very happy with this one though I don't know why I didn't consider a thin cord sooner so this would be done.
