It all started when I read this post by Mary Beth. I love that bag ... which is exactly what I need now. The carryall bag I am using now was enough for me before I started knitting. But now if I want to take even a small project with me, I need to carry it instead of stuffing it into my bag. So, I looked for a Smith & Hawken near me ... the nearest would be in Los Gatos. I went there before by taking the longer route ... but I somehow feel that I can drive good enough now to go on the highway. So, there I went ... via Highway 17!
-half a ball of LB Magic Stripes
-a new skein of LB Fisherman's Wool (that's a huge skein of yarn!)
-a knitting book on lace from the library
-a paperback fiction
-my cell phone
... and other odds and ends ... and there is still LOTS of room left! And there are altogether 6 deep pockets on the sides of the bag (in one of which you can see a juice bottle). Of course, I wouldn't take so many yarns with me during the day. But now I can use this to carry my gym gears plus a small project with me ... no need for a separate gym bag.
The only shortcoming I can find so far is that there is no means to close the bag. For a careless and paranoid person like me, perhaps it would be a better idea to have something like Velcro sew-on tape ... and that's what I am going to do.
There is no knitting to show today though I haven't stopped knitting. I just finished the 4th central panel repeat of the Samper Stole last night. There are 3.5 more to go but I may stop with 2.5 more. As you can see from the picture above, I only have HALF a ball of Magic Stripes ... so another pair of socks soon. Wish you all a wonderful mid-week ... Happy Knitting!
