(Not the last Knitting Bag. Oh no, by no means. Just the last one that's been documented.)
Strictly speaking, you'll have noticed that this is a pencil case.
I was carrying some dpns, some Manos del Uruguay and a 1/2 finished beret around in my handbag for ages, where they kept getting caught on my pens, key, and other paraphenalia. Wouldn't it be great to have a kind of mini-bag for my knitting that I could carry in my handbag? (I thought.) Like a makeup bag, only....for....knitting.
Bingo, a pencil case of course.
I started to scout around for one, thinking that it would be a simple matter of picking one that I liked.
Not so. It took some time to weed out the furry, hairy, novelty, Barbie, Spiderman, pretend-coke-can, too-flat, too-narrow, too-short and just plain hideous ones. I finally settled for this one, having fallen for the little beast on the side. The opening is a little bit narrow but it's roomy inside, and can carry any number of dpns, knitting notions and your current project - providing that's no bigger than a hat or a pair of socks/gloves/mittens.
Oh and your yarn too. Not bad for 5 euro. Plus there's another little puppy on the zip pull. Cute.
Unbelievably, knitting has resumed on this ghost of a project.
News and pics soon.
