I knit. And I cook, write, take pictures. All for one low price.

sew skilled

During the last couple of years, I've developed a sincere love for small hand made items that are not knitted. If you know me in person, you'll realize that I would hardly ever put a colorful print on myself. But I love cheerful fabrics in small doses, and if they come in the form of knitting accessories, so much the better. If I can find something either locally made, or on etsy, I go for it.

Last fall, I bought a box bag by JessaLu, who is also a friend of mine. It was my virgin etsy purchase. :)


I love this bag because I can carry it around by the handle, with a sock project inside. It holds all of my stitch markers, tape measure, the needle gauge, you know, all those little gadgety things that float around in your knitting bag. I can put the bag in my knitting basket, but mostly it just sits out because it looks so good ;)


The inside is lined and the bag stands up on its own really well.


Now here's the point where once again I need to apologize for my poor photography skillz - my camera was at the complete wrong settings while to took all these pictures.
Anyway. The other day it was time for me to send myself a little present. It arrived on Monday.



I am going on a pretty big trip in about a month from now, and of course I am trying to think about my knitting project and what needles I'll bring and how I will transport it all. Hehe. I'm going to the Sock Summit, of course I'm bringing a sock project, but I'll be with about 270 other vendors who have gorgeous yarn for sale and what if I get some and have to swatch it right then and there?!
OK back to my package. It contained this:



to hold this airline approved (fabulous for the traveling knitter: row counter, tape measure, folding scissors, thread cutter, stitch markers, point protectors) all in one kit -





-- a circular needle case



-- a straight needle case








Everything is lightweight, super well made, and totally beautiful.
