packing my bags...

I'm packing my suitcase to head South for a couple weeks, and wanted to show you these small bags I'll be taking along to hold my knitting projects. The linen bag, which I made, is a Japanese Knot Bag that I first saw at Junie Moon. I even used the same great red print she used, to line mine. The blue and white bag was so very kindly sent to me by Mary--a little different, but same concept for the handles. Mary's was labeled as a lunch bag--wouldn't it be perfect for that! The little linen roll with the button is my sewing kit, which I'm also going to bring along...

And here is the Chunky Knit Beanie, finished ~ so fast to knit, it is instant gratification.

Stephanie immediately requested it, and so now it is hers...
...though luckily she won't be needing it for a couple weeks ~ we're really hoping to thaw out from the colder and snowier-than-usual-winter we have been having.

  2. I actually knitted then felted a bag like yours from The Bag Ladies. Don't know if they're patterns are still available, but it turned out really cute. Sewing them would be SO MUCH QUICKER. Enjoy your trip.

    Would love a peak inside that little sewing kit of yours -- or maybe some in the shop to order?

    Hope you're having a great time while away.
