Bags of Fun!

I have a lot of handbags – I’m a woman – end of.

It has dawned on me that I also have a lot of knitting project bags. These cute, handy, sometimes drawstring, sometimes holdall, sometimes purse-like receptacles are in abundance in my craft room. And I never seem to have enough of them.

I choose the bag to suit the project I am working on. Say for instance, if I am going to knit a sweater, at some point this sweater is going to get bigger and I may need to carry 2 or 3 skeins of yarn at once (if I’m on the move), so the bag has to be quite large. The opposite goes for small projects too.

My favourite bag right now is the Jute bag from Seasalt. The small sized bag is just the right capacity for large or small knitting projects – and it looks really cute! I like the fact that it looks trendy and functional, and that the graphics don’t contain pictures of kittens/cupcakes/ribbons/dots etc – a little more sober and a lot less…. granny!

I keep finding myself eyeing up small handmade totes and sandwich bags and seeing their potential as a knitting project bag. Yeah, it’s official. I’ve got it BAD!
