Knitting Bags

Since I have been overcome by my knitting passion I had began to have issues of where to put my projects and how to transport them to various places that I can sit and knit. (Every friggin spare moment that I have.) 

Last holiday, my partner gave me a soft tool bag by "Craftsman" and it came with a small bag inside the larger bag.  I was rushing around trying to find a bag and I happened to grab the tool bag by accident.

All I have to say is it worked out to my advantage.  It s great bag to through a knitting book in alone with the appropriate tools for the project and away I go.

 The best part of the bags is that it's funny.  People see the name of the bag and automatically think it's something "Butch" and then you open it up and all this knitting falls out!

That being said, I wanted to keep my other projects safe and waiting for me without having to move projects around. I found that "Target" had two tool bags by "Durabuilt" for $10.00 bucks.

I have attached a picture of similar bags, mine are grey.

Cool bag, it looks good. I was thinking about getting the Lion Brand bag but not keen on advertising. Not that I'm a fibre snob. I love their patterns a lot & their wool felts beautifully!

I like that bag!  I made the mistake of buying the Jordanna Paige Messenger Knitting Bag.  I must have called a million places trying to locate it in navy and black.  When I received it, I was a bit disappointed in the craftsmanship.  I've had it 4 months now and it already has a hole in it.  I expected more for my $70.00.  Has anyone seen the Namaste Messenger Bag?  Most of the contrasting interiors look very "feminine."  The chocolate brown, however, has a nice stripe.  I'm thinking about trying that one, but a little leary after my disappointment with Jordanna Paige.

Alright, Gary!

Let's just get one thing straight:  You ARE a Fibreholic.  There's nothing to be done about that.  The first step is to make a positive affirmation of your addiction and then, through the help of a support group, MOVE ON.  And LooK?  We're here.  We're here to help you cope through your withdrawl . . . . we'll have  you read 1st Corinthians, 2nd Corinthians, 4th Greeks, and 3rd Queens . . . it all will help: but YOU have to take the bull by the horns and just say " N O   ! ! !"

Ok, never mind.   All that will do nothing.  I guess the only answer is to just run out and , . . . . .and . . . . . . . and. . . . . . . . BUY MORE FIBRE . . . . . . . .


You are the Fibre INCUBUS! 

And welcome to the group, Gary.  You're among some of the most wonderful people on the face of the Earth.  You won't have to muddle by . . .You'll sail through with a smile on yer face.  a-HA!  (;^D)

Many hugs,

 Very cool bag!!  I personally like to use backpacks to carry all my stuff in.... knitting projects, hemp jewelry making supplies, craft tools, camera, voice recorder, pens, paper.... blah, blah, blah..... This would make a great bag for those days when I know I don't need to carry anything but a knitting project.  I may have to make a trip to the local hardware store to see what I can find..... You can never have too many bags :-)
