Show & Tell: Whoops, another knitting bag!

Regular readers will know that I absolutely love bags! It would be fair to say that my bag collection is even more ridiculous than my yarn stash, but when I spotted this pewter knitting bag on Love Knitting a few days ago, I knew I needed one - you see it almost matches the brogues I bought following the recent Stephen West workshop (and I do love 'matchy' things). 

*Enabling alert* Even if you didn't get the shoes (and several of you confessed that you did, when I posted them on Instagram) this is a really nice knitting bag, so I thought it would be only fair to share the love. As you can see it's a generously sized bag made from coated canvas - the front pocket is big enough to fit a magazine (I pulled this month's Mollie Makes out a little, so you can compare the colour of the stripes) and the inside will comfortably carry a sweater-sized project or lots of smaller projects, as well as your notions, notebook, needles/hooks.

Here's a peek at the inside with 700g of yarn, plus my huge notions case. I put the magazine in for scale, and behind it you can just about see the small zipped pocket which is ideal for some spare stitch markers, a cable needle, tape measure etc. You can see there is still plenty of room for carrying other things too. 

The grab handles are the perfect length for carrying in hand or in the crook of the arm, and without a coat it will fit over my shoulder. It's a lightweight bag, so even when filled with projects it's comfy to hold, and I think it would be a very cute way to carry yarn to a knit and natter, or to commute with a project, without it necessarily looking like you're carrying a "knitting" bag (if that's something that might bother you). The main section has a zip closure, but unless you stuff the top of the bag, I can't see that you'd need to worry about your yarn getting stuck in it as the bag is so tall.  Best of all, it's a great price - at the time of writing it is £26.65 which means it also qualifies for free shipping.

  1. Oooohhhh!! I don't blame you for getting that bag ;) Love the styling of the first picture xx

  2. Ooh that bag is amazing, I love the colour! I've been trying to reduce the amount of stuff in my home and thinking very hard if I really want the item when I feel like buying something, but this bag might just make the cut!

    1. It is lovely and very roomy - I really like it (and don't only use it for knitting!!)
