These Bags Are Made For Walkin’…

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.

    Hi – I am the designer of the port-a-pocket. Just want to clarify that the bag that is featured in picks was made special for them without a velcro strap. The others in that line have a velcro strap that can be attached to your belt, stationary bike, buggy etc. Just wanted to keep the record clear.
