Knitting Notion Mothership!
So I finally found ***the*** perfect bag for storing all of my knitting paraphernalia!
Check this out!
Now…. I’ve already caught some flack from a few other posh-knitter types that just don’t understand why a knitter would want something with BassPro on it. lol
Well… here in Colorado, it’s a status symbol! Kind of like Nike or Reebok.. only better.
I guess you’d have to fish to appreciate it, huh?
In all seriousness.. I do have some really beautiful knitting bags… so this is *not* the one I’m hauling out in public (unless it is to take along to a knitting shop when I’m going to start a new project and not sure if I have the right size needles available.)
The challenge is going to be to try, just for the fun of it, to embellish this bag to cover over the BassPro logo. Stay tuned for that!
Anyway, back to knitting…
I do most of my knitting on circular needles (circs) . When it comes to socks, mittens, and the like – I use two 24″ circs. ( I personally don’t like the magic loop thing – but this is similar)
I have dozens of circs that I try to keep organized. I had a Namaste needle case.. but it really didn’t hold as much.. and in the case of the older circs I have, it makes you wind them up a little too tight – and that curl (whcn you go to use them) bugs me.
So I have this bag to use as the “mothership” for all of my notions to come home to roost between projects. I have several of all of the following:
- retractable measuring tapes
- needle end covers
- cable needles
- stitch counters
- stitch markers
- darning needles
- small scissors or snips
- and loads and loads of circs.
Circular needles have become so expensive (over $10 each)… that it is just necessary to keep them rounded up! I still remember when I was teaching my daughter to knit and she threw out a pair because she thought they were disposable! Aaaargh!
Now, BassPro as several types… and this particular bag can be hard to find for some reason on their site… but here’s the direct link to it.
And if you read down in the reviews… you’ll find at least one other positive review from a knitter!
PS… I still need one more of these for fishing tackle before spring!
