On-the-Go Project Bag (and a Giveaway!)

When carrying my knitting around, I like to keep it in nice project bags. I used to drop works in progress (WIPs) into ziplock bags and throw them into my purse or tote bag. It was handy but not very attractive. I have a couple of large bags that I’ve acquired through the years that are my standbys. Those are better suited for large WIPs; one of them is currently holding a blanket that will ultimately fit a double-sized bed. Another is a tote bag with a witty phrase. For small projects – like socks – I use this little silk bag.

Silk Project Bag 1

The bag is 8.5″ tall, 8″ wide and about 2″ deep (21.5 cm x 20 cm x 5 cm). It fits the necessary yarn, needles, notions, and patterns for socks, hand warmers, a hat or other small projects.

It is fully lined and cinches closed. And it’s pretty. It’s meant to be a nice evening bag but I repurposed it for knitting.

I happen to have a couple of these in flowery peach and light blue colors so I thought I would have a giveaway in celebration of spring. I will randomly select one recipient for the silk bag (and perhaps a few other surprises) on or around the Spring Equinox.

  1. Do I get an extra entry for having my birthday on the Spring Equinox? 🙂 Just kidding!
    I love the old – fashion feel I get from this bag. It’s like “Yeah I’m knitting like your granny and I’m having a little silk bag like your granny’s!” 😀

  2. Reblogged this on babywren and commented:
    Any one else interested in winning this pretty little silk bag? I could envision many other uses for this bag for my non-knitting friends, and this blog is always an interesting read 🙂

  3. Very pretty bag! I tend to carry large handbags to and from work which have one section completely open for knitting and rarely bother with the special bag. However, that doesn’t help me transition well from bag to bag, which I like to do this time of year.

  4. That’s a lovely embroidered bag and now I feel guilty…
    I’ve been taking my time to sew a few project bags with some of the loom woven cloth that I made. I’ll put that on my “to do” list girl this week. Finding the time will be my biggest challenge.

  5. That’s brilliant! I have a couple of little clutches that I rarely use but would be perfectly sized for sock knitting.

  6. I’m filled with envy! I totally adore the bag and can see why you use it for your project bag. I’d want to use it every day too, rather than only see it when I required an evening bag (very rare that happens!). It’s beautiful, you lucky girl. ~ sending oodles of love ~ Cobs. x

  7. I should have posted this a while back. The winner of the silk bag giveaway is Zeta from kalianapodi.wordpress.com! The bag and a few other extras are on their way to her. Congratulations! I hope you like it!! – Veronica
