About this project
Not that anyone around here at my house doesn't already know that about me. In fact, when James has his little "date day" with the girls, I always jokingly say "What am I going to do with a nice quiet house?" The girls always reply with, you can knit and watch Gilmore Girls.
A while ago I came across this bag here from Karissa Cove XO. At first I just loved it because it said "I love to Knit". But then, browsing through my favorites on Flickr the other day (in a mood to make something), I came across her photo again (seriously, how many of us even remember what photos we've added to our favorites on Flickr?) and decided that I would make it for myself. A nice big "lug all" bag that I can throw across my shoulder and head out the door with the girls. Filled with whatever we need for that day and of course a knitting project, although, at this moment, I don't have any knitting WIPs. All the socks I was working on I frogged for one reason or another. Maybe this bag will help be to get bitten by the knitting bug again.
And yes, this bag is huge! K. tried it on and it almost comes down to her ankles. But I love it and it's just the size bag I've been wanting for quite sometime. I believe that every Mom has 2 bags, one big bag for when she's taking her babes out and about and one small one for when it's just her and her honey.
The only thing that I'm not happy with about this bag is the inside pocket I made. It's way to flimsy (didn't add interfacing to it) and I think it just needs some sort of closure added to it for it to stop flopping open and getting in the way. But it does however hold some of my knitting goodies quite well.
But I do love it and can't wait to put it to some good use.
