I had said in this post here that I would love a new (handmade) knitting bag to carry my projects with me. The first person to jump at the chance was Sandy whom I have only “met” this year when we were messaging back and forth on Ravelry about fair isle and both of us being beginners in fair isle. A “deal” was made that she would make me a knitting bag and in return I would send her some yarn and stitch markers.

The funny thing about all of this is that I had only told her what my favorite colors were. Not mentioning the fact that while green is my favorite color, there are some shades of green that I do not like. hhhhmmmmm…….this chicky had me figured out if I do say so myself.

So earlier this week I received my package and immediately ran into the house in search of an implement to rip this package open.

I was not sure what to expect. I knew that I would love it because it was handmade for me, but other than that, she never hinted around about how awesome this knitting bag was going to be.

1 medium size project plus the yarn attached to it, my “never knit alone without this book by my side” Knitting Answers book, gauge/needle measure, pens, and my hippo gadget case all fit so neatly inside with even enough room for a sock or hat project perhaps.

And my favorite part of the bag, she hand stitched on a nice snap closure so everything stays in side.


(And I should also mention how much I love the interior fabric)

So it would be 100% safe to say that Sandy had me figured out pretty well and knows just the shade of green that is my favorite .

(and I should mention that the color on my camera is really off so sadly you are not getting to actually see just how awesome this color of green is that is my favorite – never a good sign when you let your daughter take a few pictures with your camera and then you hear the words “Uh-oh!”. Can’t figure out what is wrong with it but I imagine it is something with my settings that she was playing around with)

Oh, and my part of the swap that I sent to her, well, like a nerd I was too concerned about getting it sent to her (two days pass our agreed send out date because of me having to have wisdom teeth pulled – ggrrr!) so in my pain induced state, I forgot to take pictures of what I sent her. But she hasn’t received it yet so I still wouldn’t be able to post them.

So thank you Sandy from the bottom of my heart! I absolutely looooove my new knitting bag!!!!! (If you want the details of this hand knitted and felted bag, you can check out her Ravelry page.)
