Too Expensive?
My lovely husband, who is so supporting of everything I do, esspecially knitting, says that the knitone bags are too expensive. http://www.knitone.com/



I want a nice knitting bag that is stylish and can hold my daily things as well, such as cellphone, ipod, keys... and I really wanted a knitone bag.

Start looking at the really expensive bags....and then remind him that the KnitOne bags are ONLY $68.

I think you'll find that a lot of the nicer knitting bags cost that much. For instance the Jordanna Paige knitter's Satchel is $89!!

I have the everyday bay by Namaste Needles and I love it.
It's kinda big, and very vintage looking. A friend's husband says it looks like a bag a grandma would carry.

I talked hubby into a Jordanna Paige bag for Mothers Day last year with a "don't you love me??!" Of course, after I bought it, Knitpicks came out with their Knit In Public bags (KIP) that really look nice...I could buy a new knitting bag every month (if I had the $$ that is )!! I do love my JP messenger bag -- it is pink and black checks -- but it is pretty large for everyday stuff. One of my favorite containers for a small project (like a sock) is these clear plastic containers that have a handle and a snap lid you can thread the yarn through that I got at Walmart. They keep my yarn clean and dry when I'm camping or at the pool, and they come in 2 sizes. Not stylish, but very useful :-)

Ahh -- just found a link for the "yarntainer" -- http://www.joann.com/catalog.jhtml?C...&PRODID=168332

Start carrying your knitting around in public in this:



I mean everywhere: to work, to your place of worship, and to the store.
