Stop! I’ve found the Holy Grail of project bags. The best part? You can win your very own in your fabric and personalization of choice!
As a knitter/crocheter, is it possible to have too many project bags? Is that like asking is it possible to have too much yarn? “NO! Never! How dare you even voice such a thought!”
As a mother who is also a knitter, I am the (proud?) owner of literally 100 different bags of various shapes, sizes, and purposes: two diaper bags, an army of suitcases, overnight bags for the kids, lunch bags, pool bag, beach bag (because the pool and the beach necessitate different bags, naturally), grocery bags, library book bags, gym bag, five purses, dozens of knitting project bags, a free bag from ETV… well you get the picture.
Why do we collect so many bags? For me, at least, I am always searching for things that serve the purpose well. For example, it’s taken four diaper bags for me to find the perfect one that holds what I need, in a way that makes sense, and isn’t covered in Winnie the Pooh.
I am always on the lookout for the “perfect” bag.
Well, I’ve found it. When Crystal, the moderator of my Stitch ‘n Bitch, showed off her bag and told us about her online party for them, I was convinced it would be perfect.
And it is.
It’s the Holy Grail of knitting project bags: the Get A Grip, by Initials, Inc. It comes in small ($30) and large ($45). Here is mine (the “small”):
I chose the fabric and the personalization (which is FREE). As you can see, the “small” holds a whole lot of stuff. I had to unpack mine to make it look prettier for the picture; it can easily hold twice as much as I have pictured.
I cannot say enough good things about this bag. The pockets circle the outside. There are two smaller pockets (perfect for dpns, scissors, or pencils), larger pockets, and medium sized ones. I pop my cell phone in one and my wallet in the other, and I’m off to Knit Night!. I love that it’s structured, so you can always see inside it, and your yarn streams out of it perfectly. It won’t collapse and crush your sock needles out of the stitches. Also, there is enough room under the handle to put a magazine or pattern cover. No more worries about how to carry those around without them getting wrinkled!
Working on a larger project such as an afghan? The large bag would make Mary Poppins forget her manners and fight you for it. It’s Ah-mazing.
