I had planned on showing some finished pictures of Aidez but after incorrectly calculating stitches once I joined the sleeves and started on the yoke and having to rip it back twice I am finally on the home stretch. Since the first day of Autumn has come and gone and I don't have a cardigan to show for it yet I thought I would share my knitting bag.
Please don't judge me...I know it's awful. I use it for its form and function not necessarily its beauty. This is an old bag I think I used to tote around baby stuff at one point. The reason I like it so much is that it is surrounded by pockets on the outside. An easy way to divvy up my stuff and the kid crap that I am inevitably toting around. The inside is a large main compartment that is divided by a zippered divider pocket. It also has a small zippered bag that is attached by a hook. I have all my various accessorises in the outside pockets and on the inside is where I keep my knitting. I just got The Knit Kit in the mail so a little reorganizing of my bag was in order. I had to the knit kit because I was buying some birthday presents and needed a little bump to get my free shipping... right?
knitting "first aid kit" I ordered mine off Amazon, best price, and highly recommend it.
The next thing I carry with me in my bag is my mp3 player. I realize most people have smart phones but alas I have a 'dumb' phone. It only makes phone calls. I have music, movies, pod casts, and audio books.
