Does it mean I've sold out if I carry this cute little HiyaHiya bag for flying but use an fancy Della Q for car trips?
Around the house and for short trips in town, I use a little soft basket that I "borrowed" from my daughter for my WIPs. I have a small zippered notions bag with my scissors and stuff inside this bag and can easily move it to another bag if needed. My future to-do's are in a large paper bag, sorted into large ziplocs with photocopied instructions and the necessary yarns. I don't journal, per se, but I do have a little notebook with future projects listed, misc. yarns (and amounts I have), and the needles I already have. I've been making lots of toys this year since I have a new granddaughter, and I listed all the floss colors I've bought and the other misc. notions that I have too many of already in this notebook too. I carry it in my purse everywhere 'cause you never know...
All my other needles, hooks, stitch markers and other fun toys are stored in a large picnic basket. I only take what I need for a specific project when I travel but I have a "what if" project tucked in my suitcase. This isn't reason to skip shopping the yarn stores though.
I've only been knitting for a couple of years too but the bug sure bit me hard! I'm so happy to know there are other knitting knerds out there!
