One of my favorite times to knit is all the time (please don’t knit and drive, I see this ending badly. Scuba diving while knitting isn’t dangerous per se, but it sure does mess with your gauge!). But how about while walking? I love to knit while I walk, it’s just natural. I used to use a large shoulder bag and just throw all my yarn and project into that bag and start off. But recently, I discovered that I’m not the only one who likes to knit while walking and the yarn and pattern companies have heard our pleas! I found two suitable bags at KnitPicks.
One, is called the GoKnits Pouch. Comes in some really cool colors and features a loop inside to hold the yarn and keep it from tangling before it comes out. I especially like that it is made in the US.
The other, kind of cute but maybe a bit small is called the Port-a-Pocket. The Port-a-Pocket has some neat pockets and I think I’d like something that would attach to my beltloop via a hook, rather than around my wrist. These bags are really affordable, both under 20.00. Gonna have to start on my Christmas List early
What? Christmas is months away!
Since I’m all about supporting my local yarn shop (a mere 45 min. drive from my house), I’ll probably wait until I go there and see if she has anything similar. And, since I’m also all about impulse buying, well, you can see the dilemma. Who’s gonna win? Heck! Even I don’t know!
How about this? Why not go all “knitty” and knit your own? If you have a personal favorite knitted bag, send me a link. I’d love to see it.
