It’s time for another give away, but not yarn this time. We can never have too many knitting/crochet bags, right? I can’t, I have four (or maybe there’s five…) and I do like to switch them out on occasion.
We actually have a “sponsor” of sorts, this time around. Underground Clothing, Co. has generously donated one of their awesome desert rose messenger bags (that happen to make really awesome knitting bags). I like them because they don’t snag your knitting and are rather roomy, comfortably accommodating 14″ straight needles (that’s always a bonus). They remind me of the mobile knit pouches, only larger, as you can pull out your knitting anywhere with the yarn ball safely tucked inside.
What do you need to do? Tell me what kind of knitting you’ll be taking on your summer travels. Not traveling? Tell us what you’ve got planned for your summer knitting, just reply to this post and a winner will be selected on June 10th, 2008. Good luck!
*I’m glad so many people like the bag and of course crocheters, spinners, and any other crafters out there are welcome to participate.
Jackie had asked what I’m knitting this summer and I’ve got a few things that, hopefully, will benefit my summer wardrobe. At the moment, I’m designing a beach cover up and a child’s vest in Rowan Denim. I also started the Featherweight Lingerie Dress and Never Wimpy Wimple from Lace Style and my fingers are itching to knit a pair of socks (maybe something from Folk Socks). My Ravelry queue has been lurking in the back of my mind, including the Ballerina Tank and Rita Mae. Savannah is so warm for most of the year, it would really be to my advantage to knit some lighter garments.
