One of the things that I just am not good at is having cute little knitting bags. I tend to stuff my knitting in my purse or briefcase – and when I need a separate bag I use shopping bags from yarn stores. I see knitters with the cutest bags all the time – most of my knitting group members have very nice bags in all sizes, shapes, colors. I show up with plastic bags from the grocery store. OK, not that bad – but close. And I see cute ones online all the time and I’ve been so envious of all of them….
So I decided to look around and find a cute bag of my own. And where better to look than Etsy?
I found this at Stilleto – you can’t begin to see how cute it is from this picture – its adorable! A small messenger bag – perfect for a small project, wallet, cell – everything you need!
This is the inside – yarn, Monkey sock…and still room! Notice the pockets on the side? The front also has another pocket….
Dave also threw in this cute little matching pouch – I think it was a special promotion…
I can’t wait to use it – I think I’m going to go out to dinner just so I can bring it with me (and knit while I’m waiting – that will totally embarrass the kids…). I sent Dave an email and asked if he would custom make a larger one for larger projects – I’ll let you know what he says. But check out his site – I can’t believe how nice this is, and how well-made – and very reasonably priced!
I had knitting group today – again, just had the best time. Isn’t it just lovely to be with friends and share a laugh (and a knit?)? I love so much about knitting – but I really love that its allowed me to make new friends – both in person and online!
By the way – did you know Knit Picks is having a book sale? 40% off! I have to admit – I got a couple…!
