Project Bags!!

I don't know about you, but I'm a woman who keeps a project handy in her purse, just in case. As a matter of a fact, I think I choose my purses based on how reasonably well I can fit a knitting project into them. I read just the other day on the Yarn Harlot's blog that there's something comforting about being around women who don't think it's odd that you keep yarn in your purse, and I totally agree. With that in mind, I've two types of project bags that make carrying your project with you wherever you go a snap.

First, there's the self-locking drawstring bag. Fully lined, these 8" x 10" bags are washer/dryer safe and 100% cotton. Each bag holds a center-pull ball of up to 1200 yards of fingering weight yarn, plus there's room to add a small notions bag, whatever you are working up, and your pattern. The self-locking nature of the drawstring allows you to keep everything safely inside without worry of the contents spilling out.

Second, there's the zippered bags.  Also 100% cotton and fully lined (no messy seams exposed), these bags feature a plastic, low-snag zipper, a square bottom that allows the bag to stand upright by itself, and 2 nickel grommets.  This medium-sized bag, which can also double as a toiletries bag in a pinch, is 9.25" x 7.25". Each bag will hold up to two 450 yard center-pull balls, a notions pouch, needles, and a small in-progress project.

Third, there's the sock project bag.  Although I am a 2-at-a-time sock knitter, I know that most people prefer to work with DPNs. The smallest bag, 6.5" x 7.25" is perfect for your take-along sock project.  These bags feature a single nickel grommet and enough room to easily house your center-pull ball, DPNs, a small notions bag.  Like their larger counterparts, these sock project bags are fully lined, 100% cotton, and washer/dryer safe.

Whether as a gift for someone special (Mother's Day is Sunday!) or for yourself, these durable bags are sure to keep your project in line, especially if you find yourself with a little down time during a commute.
