Green Mountain Knitting bags...Anyone??
Hey all,

Just wondering....Any of you have one of these bags? If so....which one? I was thinking about getting one...but not sure which. UGH! :rollseyes: I'm looking for one that would fit 2 small projects. Socks, and (I'm going to be starting an afghan) which is done square by square. So socks (on dpns) and a square (with 14" straights) anda few balls of yarn, pattern, notions, etc.

But also something that would later fit say a sweater project.

I don't want it to be too huge....but not to small :thinking: . I don't want it to barely fit my 2 small projects cuz like I said maybe a sweater or something in the future. Hmm..

Here's the link:
http://www.greenmountainknittingbags.com/index.htm

Any thoughts?? Reviews from those that have one??

TIA,
KNITBIT :XX:

I'd never seen these before. But WOW - what trippy pieces of art they are, just in themselves! I particularly like that autumn-colored tapestry bag.

She puts so much thought and care into her creations... I think it would be a joy to own one, even if it were only big enough for my smaller projects.

In short: Go for it!

Ya, they are so nice!!!!!!!!! LOL!!! Well...I took the plunge last night and ordered one.

This is the one I ordered.

It's a bit bigger than I had planned but then I thought I always want to take a magazine or knitting bk with me and never have room. So now I should have enough room for that and my 2 lil projects! YAY!

She puts up new bags late Weds. and Suns. I ck'd late yesterday and BOOM the bag I purchased was there. WOW!! Had to get it!!! So beautiful!

She is so nice and helpful!! :D I emailed her telling her I was unsure which bag would work. She took pics of a few different ones w/ a hank, pattern, etc. So I can get an idea of what the bag would hold.

She is soooo talented!!! She handpicks and searches for each vintage/old fashioned buttons for her bags.

I can't wait to recieve my new bag!

The bag you chose is beautiful. That's the one I would have picked.

Reminds me... I have a bag I made that I haul projects in. The pattern was from the Octagon Ladies' Repository, and it's called Traveling Bag. It has two sides, and was modeled on a ladies' lingerie bag from ca. 1863. It's great because it has a saddlebag way about it, I can carry it over my arm or on my shoulder. Yarn one side, needles and widgets on the other, and no tangles.

I'll have to dig it out and take a photo.

I know I couldn't decide either cuz I didn't know how big they were inside. I emailed the maker, Martha...telling her what I wanted to put inside, etc. and what bag she could suggest would be best. She then emailed me pics of the inside with a hank and some needles to give me a better idea...(which was really nice of her to do....being I'm sure she's quite busy). :D

There are pics of the pockets she puts inside the bags on the main page of her site towards the bottom there is a link. All the bags have 3 or 4 pockets except the sm baguette (which I believe has none).

You can email her and let her know what you want to put inside and see what she suggests. Or ask her to send u a few pics of the inside. She is really nice!!

Her bags are just beautiful!!! I like the ones both of you purchased. I'm not far from Vermont...I'll have to check out where exactly she is located. Would be great to hand pick one! :XX:
