I had fun printing out pictures of famous women knitting for my window display. Come by and see if you can identify them all–you’ll have to be both a film and history buff to get all of them. Mother’s Day is a great time to give yourself…I mean your mom…a treat to feed your…sorry, her… creative addiction to yarn. Project bag, new issue of Vogue Knitting or Interweave Knits, that skein of yarn you’ve been eyeing…see you in the shop!
These little pouches are great for walking around knitting. I use this one in the store. I remember seeing Jill Brewer walking around the after-school program with her ball of yarn tucked under her arm, assisting kids, knitting away steadily. She could have used one of these. Are we multi-taskers or what? In fact, Amanda Lilley made similar pouches for awhile and I still use hers. These Go Knit pouches have a snapped loop to hook to your belt loop, purse, backpack or chair. The water resistant, lightweight nylon, keeps your project protected from the elements (i.e. cats, dogs, and sticky fingers).
Another project bag in the shop is from Della Q–Edict. Each of these little bags has a knitter’s or crocheter’s saying going up the side and a small pocket inside. They are drawstring and really reasonably priced–only $10!
Both project bags are great gift ideas for you! Time to drop a few hints around to your friends and family…
