This Friday is all about my favorite new knitting bag. It’s not all that new (acquisition knitters frolic 2010) but it’s my favorite.
A couple of months ago (pre-frolic) to be exact, I was introduced to ZigZagStitches when Catherine from ZigZagStitches tweeted that she’d added more bags to Flickr.com before the Frolic. I was immediately in love.
While working on my large green shawl (note- final photo to follow, as soon as I find my lost memory card with all TNNA photos on it!!) I realized that it’s hard work carrying a large knitting project around. In response to this rather obvious fact, my top knitting friends introduced me to the concept of the ‘small, portable simple project’. I was looking towards my trip to the UK and a small project was what I needed indeed.
At the Frolic, I sorted through bags and fabric to find my perfect match. It was the right size for my mid-length needles and fabric style. Echino is one of my favorite textile design houses and I was thrilled to see a boxy bag zippered in one of their fine fabric designs.
While I haven’t finished any particular ‘small, portable simple projects’, I have acquired a few more. I am working on Winter Bud in our very own ‘espresso yourself’ colour of our Ravelry inspired Creative Juices Collection and this killer scarf as seen on someone at TNNA, in a lovely shade of orange(not in production) from Lorna’s Lace. I’ll keep you posted on the progress.
With my ZigZag bag in tote, I’m officially a stylish and organized knitter. Now, if only I can find more time to knit.
