So....What's In Your Knitting Bag?

 

I just had a night out with my friends who knit.  We were talking about our different knitting bags, and what we carry in them.  There was some pretty funky stuff there!  So....What does your knitting bag look like....and what do you carry in it?

 I currently use 2.  One is black microfibre with a blue "J" embroidered on it.  I use that for travel. My favorite right now is just a lined blue straw totle bag I use in the summer.

Inside I have

  • my current project
  • a small green flowered zip case which contains my tools...scissors, stitch markers, stitch holders..crochet hooks needle sizer etc.
  • Assorted knitting needles
  • hand cream
  • chapstick (who wants chapped lips whilst knitting?
  • Breath Mints (who knows who you're gonna meet?)

Wooden Knitting Needles

Has anyone used birch knitting needles? Or any other type of wood?  I have seen glass ones too.  Has anyone ever seen or used them?

Trying to Organize a Dallas Mens Knitting Group

Should there be any DFW metroplex men kitters... or if you guys know any that you can send my way.. I'm trying to get one together.  And you know what?  Contacting guy knitters in your area is DARN difficult.  I've already gone through the members list but so far to no avail.

So, I know you are out there and I'm a gonna find ya!

Thanks,

Chris
