I have always been know for my love of bags, apparently I take after my grandmother. Something to do with the pockets and the ability to categorise and organise all at the same time. So on my search for the ultimate knitting bag the jury is still out. However, more recently they have had some excellent contenders.
I have to say at this point I am extremely happy with my Namaste messenger bag that was purchased from Robynn for my birthday last year but one must not be complacent, and you can never have enough bags and each and every bag should have its own purpose.
Anyway I do think I may have found the ultimate sock knitting bag, not just for an individual project, for those there are goknit pouches and JennaLou bags but for the whole caboodle. The ultimate, portable, sock knitting workstation.
Look at all the little pockets and zippy bits to put in all your essential sock knitting requirements.
And plenty of space in the main part of the bag to through in a project pouch and a couple of balls of yarn to boot. Plus it stands up all by itself.
So where did I find this fantastic sock bag with all the space a knitter on the go could need for her tools? And how much does it cost?
Well I will let you into a little secret ........... the answer is a local charity shop and £4. (Hey did I mention it was green aswell - on the recycling front.)
So with sock knitting done and dusted what about the rest of my knitting when I am out on the go? Well this portable sock knitting station started to get me thinking and then I remembered something that I had in my loft. Could it possibly have all the elements needed to satisfy my need to organise, classify and over plan?
I will post the pictures and leave the opinions up to you.
Have you worked out what it was in its previous life yet?
