View Full Version : On the Town Knitting Bag by Silver

:woohoo:I am the proud owner of the first ever 'Silver' On the Town Knitting Bag by our very own, multi-talented Silver.

It is gorgeous! The pictures do not do it justice! For those who did not see her original post, it is the perfect size for everything you need for a small project, with the three inside pockets, beautiful matching drawstring pouch for small items, and extra outside pocket. There is loop to guide your yarn and an adjustable loop for attaching it to your belt, wrist, or whatever.

She even put in a little card with a nice note and care instructions.

The quality of the materials and construction is excellent, particularly for the price. I couldn't be happier. :woot::happydance:

I am in full-on holiday dishcloth making mode, so the timing couldn't be better. It will be my constant companion. Get one while you can!

Thanks, Kristin. You are the best.

Mine arrived today and is absolutely fantastic! It is a beautiful blue, named Koala, due to the pattern of silver bamboo leaves. the lining is a pretty gray. It is a work of art! I've been trying to post pictures but am having trouble. Maybe soon. Thanks, Kristin!!

I got mine today too!!!!

And it is AWESOME!!!! Silver you are the best!!!

It's drawstring so yarn won't get caught on zippers. And the drawstring it so smooth!

It's an early Christmas present from my dh and I can't imagine getting a better one.

I'll post pictures of mine later.

Thank you everyone for the nice words and Im THRILLED that those of you who have gotten your bags already are happy with them! :muah:

For those of you still waiting, or who want to order a bag:
I'm currently in Atlanta at my sister's house. It's her birthday today and mom and I came up here to spend the weekend with her. So I'm not replying to email or PMs until I get back home... on Sunday night.

I will be bookin it to get the rest of the bags made next week. I have your order if I have emailed you with your bag choice. If I haven't asked for payment, it means your bag isn't finished yet. I will email you when it's done so you can pay for it then. Don't worry until you hear from me. I have you on my list. :)

I WILL take new orders AFTER I finish my current orders. So don't panic. I'll post a message here and on my blog at that time.

Thanks again, I'm glad you like them! :heart:

I just came back from a trip from Michigan to Texas and it was wonderful to have my knitting in the little bag...I kept my identification and boarding pass in the outside pocket for easy access. This little bag is definately a winner!:yay: :yay: :yay:

Hi Silver, I know I had PMed you earlier with interest, but with the holidays coming up, I am just strapped for cash and can't really justify buying something for me. :)
So if you continue to take orders in 2008, I'll get myself back on the list! :)

They're $30 + shipping. ($40 for two of the same color, $50 for two of different colors).

If you want one, email me asap and I'll get back to you with details!

And THANK YOU SO MUCH to everyone who has already ordered or had something nice to say about them. :muah:

Mine arrived! She mailed it on Saturday and it was delivered Monday, a lot sooner than I expected.

It it beautiful! And while I do not actually get out of the house and knit, I do end up sitting in the truck waiting doing the dropping off/picking up of the kids every day. It is so much easier just to grab this one project bag and run out the door. I love the "handle", I am able to attach it to my desk chair and knit whenever the computer is taking too long (which is happening more and more).

Here is a pic of it

http://i68.photobucket.com/albums/i25/hum39/Image212.jpg

I think my camera is also getting ready to die and this pic does not do it justice, it is a dark black with red and gold lettering and the inside is red.

Thank you Silver!!:muah:

No, you got Silver, Pauline! At least that's what I hope you wanted, because it's on it's way to you. LOL

Silver
12-05-2007, 12:15 PM
I really don't know how long I'll be doing these bags. I really.. REALLY like making them. I don't have any plans to stop, but there's no telling... I have a short attention span. :teehee:

I put mine in my work bag and pulled it out at my desk yesterday and had 5 compliments on it! I gave them the web address so you may get a few more orders. They all said how impressed they were by the workmanship! I told them they are hand made and they were even more impressed.

Silver
12-05-2007, 06:38 PM

I will definitely be spending some Christmas money on one of the bags, Silver. Right now it's not feasible as I try to make sure everyone gets their gifts, but I'm also a probable January order! It will be perfect to hold my 2008 projects (planning to work on lots of socks!) :)
Now, how to decide between Harmony, Silver, Koala..... LOL

I got mine the other day and it really is gorgeous. I got the Harmony. It doesn't even compare to my GoKnit pouch. I love all the pockets and it is the perfect size for a small project! Perfect for keeping little toddler hands off :teehee:

Here is a couple pictures. I had to take the one of the inside because coincedentally inside is the Palindrome scarf by Silver I am working on! The bag is much prettier IRL. Thanks again Kristin!

I got my knitting bag last night. When DH found out it was sitting at the post office he went over and picked it up for me. The Customs didn't actually charge me duty, but they charged me GST (goods and services tax), PST (provincial sales tax) and a "Handling" Fee. God Bless the Government!!

It matters not, my bag is here and I am thrilled with it. The colour is perfect, the workmanship is superb and now I can do little knitting projects while in the car going to the "cottage" which happens to be a three hour drive.

I can't remember the name of my bag (please let me know Silver and I will write it on the card inside) but it is red taffeta brocade on the outside and black satin on the inside with red thread and ties. It is stunning! I'd take a picture to show you, but my camera has run out of batteries so I can't get any more until payday.

This On the Town Knitting Bag sure was worth the money and the wait time. I am going to get a LOT of use from this.

Thanks Silver, as always you did a fantastic job! Thanks for sharing with us!!!

I received mine on Saturday but couldn't find this thread to post my reply. I was having a "duh" moment so I PM'ed Silver with the status. I bought two Dragon and Koala. I LOVE both of them so much. As soon as I opened them I put them to work.

My kids think they are beautiful as well - now they know I'm a knitting addict. My dd really thinks I should go to KAA (KnittingAholics Anonimos but I tell both dd and ds its what's keeping me sane at the moment.

Thanks again Kristin.

My bag arrived today!! I decided to do something nice for DH, so I made a decision that has me biting my nails in anticipation.

My husband had told me to order one for my Christmas gift, but all this time he's been agonizing over not knowing what to get me. I reminded him that he'd already gotten me something, but he wants me to have something under the tree on Christmas day. So when my box came today, I took it straight to him without opening it, and told him to wrap it up, and put it under the tree. Even though I know what it is, it'll still be a surprise, because I haven't opened it, and seen it in person. "Are you Sure?" he asks me. "yes," I say, "but hurry before I change my mind."

So even though I won't see it, until Christmas, I still wanted Silver to know that it did make it here. Thanks so much. I'm sure I'll be posting on this thread again on Chrismas night, and I'll be sooooo happy!!:woot:

Thank you so much, Silver, for all you do for this forum and its users. Your work is extremely beautiful and professional, and you should most definitely be proud of it. This was my Christmas gift to myself, and I'm SO glad I got it. I'll definitely be styling this holiday. Thanks again. :happydance:

I have about 15 or so bags done. I was thinking about putting them up for sale soon, but we're going out of town this weekend again so I didn't want orders to start coming in until I'm back home. I'll be back Monday night, so I will get back to work on new bags on Tuesday. I'll begin putting them up for sale next week. :)

I will for sure update this thread and let you all know when they're for sale again!

Hooray!!! She's back! :)
Silver, do you plan to make more in some darker colors? I fell in love with the ones you had originally like Calm, Harmony and Koala....
Can't wait to find one I love and order it! Thanks SOOOOO much for making these!

Oooh, I just found the link on Etsy that took me to the ones you already sold....looks like I just wasn't fast enough! :) I'll keep an eye out for more!

I do have some dark ones coming up as soon as I can make them... some more "Tapestry" bags, a new black with a bright pink liner, a burgundy one with a yellow liner, a couple more "Peace" bags, and more.

But even still, it's just a quick trip to the fabric store to pick up more colors. I plan on making these for quite a while, as long as the demand is there, I'd be stupid to stop making them. :teehee:

Wonderful! I'll keep an eye on your shop. :)

I am always in awe of people who can create such amazing things with the sewing machine....mine is buried under a bunch of stuff in my spare room and I think it's only been used once, by my mom who made a pair of curtains for me! LOL

I got the "Calm" one--it looks so gorgeous! I can't wait to get it! And I love purple!

Silver, these bags are stunning! I'm in love with the "Paisley" one, too--wish I could have gotten both!

It is simply beautiful. The materials and the workmanship make it well worth the price and it looks so elegant. I even filed my nails so they wouldn't snag the delicate fabric! I got Lucky because I love dragons and the color violet.
Thank you, Silver, and please keep making them as long as you can.

Mine came today! Thank you, Silver. It's gorgeous, and it fits my current project (mittens) perfectly! My 10-year-old DD said, "Oooooooooooooooooh." My DH (who isn't one to compliment) said it was "nice" and he said it looked "store bought." (Those are huge compliments coming from him!) Very classy! :muah:

Mine came :woohoo: but it is too gorgeous to use! :pout: It needs a hanging thread or something so I don't feel bad about toting it around and tossing it on the floor in the car! :roflhard:

Until I get over it, it is sitting bottom of my yarn bag, protected from the elements by my WIPs. :rofl: After this yucky wet sloppy weather is over, I'll start using it but right now I'm too afraid of soiling it before I get a chance to show it off. :thumbsup:

Thanks again, Silver, for making such a beautiful knitting bag. After it came, I was just handling it (so soft and shiny) and smiling at it (more gorgeous in person) and trying to decide what I wanted to put into it.

Then I realized that until winter is over, I'm not going to want to take it outside with me, but I can't bear to part from it, so it's in the bottom of my old bag where I can see it everytime I pull out my WIPs. :happydance:

My Daphne bag came this weekend, and I love it so much. I have a scarf in progress in it, and a pair of socks in progress in my other one. all I have to do is just pick which one I want to take along when I go somewhere. No more switching.:cheering: And they're much more attractive than the Walmart bags I was using. :teehee:

Thanks again, Silver!

Here is a photo of my two bags. My husband put a bar with hooks in my stash closet, so I could hang them, when they're not in use. On the Left is Daphne, and on the right is Calm.

I ordered Flutter and Happy, and I'm so excited waiting for them! One is for me and one is intended for my mother, but I might have to keep them both. :lol: I'm betting they live up to my expectations.

So you are the one who beat me to Calm! LOL
I love the hooks your husband made you, and your bags look great!

Mine arrived today and they are OUTSTANDING!!! The craftswomanship of these little bags is incredible. I'm really going to have a hard time giving one to my mother, as I want them both for ME!

Beautiful work, Kristin, and thanks so much!

I get comments everytime I take my 'Calm' out. "Lovely color. How Pretty. Can you make me one?" Thank you, yes it is, and no way! Too bad Kristin doesn't want to whole sale them, the LYS's I go to all think they are wonderful. "Much better than any we have" is what I've heard from several.

I had one of mine with me at the eye doctor and some of the girls were oohing and aahing over it. In fact one wants one just as a purse to I gave her Silvers website. Not sure if that will help her but it can't hurt either.

I love both of my bags and they are always in use.

Thanks again Silver.

I have a few up for sale (http://www.cometosilver.com/shop) right now.

I would love to be able to wholesale them, but they take so long to make, I can't possibly make them fast enough. Maybe one day I can hire a slew of employees. LOL :teehee:

And I'm going to make more "Calm" bags very soon. Seems that is the #1 seller! :)

Well I have good news and bad news regarding Calm bags.

The good news is that I have enough fabric for about 10 (maybe 12) Calm bags, and will be making those soon. EDIT: I cut the taffeta and I have enough for 18 Calm bags! :cheering:

The bad news is that the taffeta fabric has been discontinued because it was a limited seasonal fabric. I found the last of it in the clearance department. So these upcoming Calm bags will be the last of em. Unless I can somehow find more fabric.

If you have your heart set on one, keep an eye on my shop for when they're added. I am not taking pre-orders or reservations. I *might* get a couple up for sale tomorrow or Thursday. If not, don't expect them until next week.

But more good news... I'll keep making all new color combinations for as long as I can! :)

I need to stop looking in this thread -- I followed that link out of curiosity and ended up buying another one. :inlove:

Then I took mine out today and it works even more perfectly than I imagined. :happydance: I hooked it onto my purse and it didn't pull or drag or anything -- it was was light, sturdy and flexible and very easy to take along. My yarn comes out of it soooo smoothly.

I can not say enough nice things about these bags! And now I don't have to decide which project to put in it -- I will have a bag for each one!

(Thanks to the rest of you enablers who mentioned you have more than one and how well it works out! :thumbsup: Thank goodness I've committed myself to no more than 2 knitting WIPs at any time. ;) )

What a fantastic Valentine's gift to myself! I put in my order this morning...can't wait to get it! My socks can travel in STYLE!!!

Thank you so much, Silver, for being so wonderful to your customers and seeking out that last little bit of fabric for us!

I used my own prototype bag this weekend while spending hours and hours at the airport. It was my first chance to really stand and knit while waiting in a line (2 hours, customer service, long story.. read about it on my blog (http://www.cometosilver.com/write/?p=445)if you wanna). Fun times. :thumbsup:

Just got my Calm bag :cheering::yay::woot: It is so gorgeous and goes beautifully with my Silver bag!

The timing is perfect as my knitting class starts up again tonight, and I leave for California in the morning. It's the only redeeming quality of flying - hours and hours of uninterrupted knitting time!

WOW! I got my bag and yarn today, though I am beginning to suspect Silver of being in possession of a time turner. I can't figure out how she had the time to put stuff in the mail from Florida while she was in Georgia. But the bag is GORGEOUS, and the yarn I got is fabulous as well. Now if only I could decide on a project for the yarn.

LOL Banrion. Thank my husband. I had it all packed up, but forgot to put it in the mail before I left. So he dropped it off at the post office for me after he got back from the airport and before he went to work. :heart:

I WISH I could manipulate time. I'd get a lot more stuff done, that's for sure! :)

Tapestry!! :heart: It is so elegant...:passedout: I could not stand to put it back in ithe box, so it sat on my desk all day, I could look at it and show it off to everyone that came into the office. It is perfect right down to the smallest detail! Thank you so much Kristin! :woot:
