I’m flying through socks right now. I’ve got two separate socks from two distinct pairs on my needles right this second. I’ve even started a new pair of socks without finishing the first pair… something I never do. It’s like I’ve been bitten by some sort of sock bug. I’ve contracted a terrible case of sock-fluenza. I’ve been stricken with sock-itis.
It’s a problem. (Not really.)
Because of my sock-itosis, I’ve been schlepping my sock bag around a lot, and I thought I’d give you a tour of what I carry with me when I’m on a sock binge.I’ve got a handful of sock bags, but I think this one might be my favorite. It’s tough- I sewed it out of poplin and scraps of cute green quilting cotton. It’s nice and roomy, but still compact enough to fit in my purse. And, it’s got a nice big zipper to keep my knitting safe and sound as I schlep it around town.
Open it up, and all this fits inside! Two big skeins of yarn, a half-finished sock (plus needles) and my trusty notions kit full to bursting with scissors, tapestry needles and stitch markers.
(OK, if I’m being honest, my bag also contains this Snickers wrapper from when I got real hungry at work last week and had to stop for a candy bar. I’m a grown up, so I can eat candy when I want.)It’s not terribly exciting-there isn’t anything super surprising in my bag, but it still is pretty satisfying to know that I can keep a whole project with me at all times.
Ollie thought it was cool, too.Do you carry a knitting bag? What’s in yours?
I always have a project bag with me. And I have them in various sizes. For the last few days I’ve been carrying around a tie I was knitting in a little slim bag with just a tape measure since it’s so long!
