Katie and I are total bag hoarders. Anytime we see a new knitting bag we impulsively buy it and luckily, almost never regret it.
Our most recent bag purchase (yes, we each got one) was this really cool project bag from YarnPop. It’s their ‘Gadgety’ bag which is basically perfect for a colorwork project because it allows you to keep your skeins in separate zippered pockets on the inside so that they don’t end up a tangled mess. A grommet allows you to slip your yarn through the hole and pulls from inside the bag keeping your yarn contained and protected. And even if you’re not doing colorwork, the zipped pocket is great for holding your notions like scissors, tape measure, row counters, stitch markers, chapstick, gum, cell phones….and anything else you can shove in there.
They’re made with high quality materials in the good ole USA and they’re really convenient which I think justifies the pricetag.
We picked ours up at Knit Two-Gether in Vernon, CT but if you’re not local you can find them online at Webs or Jimmy Beans and a bunch of other online shops! There come in sorts of shapes and sizes that are all pretty tempting.
