I'm looking for a way to take my knitting on the go with me when I'm out walking/fishing/travelling.  I've seen the GoKnit pouch but am wondering if there are other alternatives.

P.S. I have no sewing skills to making one is not one of my options I'm afraid.  Thank you!

If you have an IKEA nearby, I found there this week a small lined velvet drawstring pouch for $2.99.   It is on the small side - about 8" tall for useable space inside the bag.   I have a ball of yarn in there with a circular  needle and a small bag project and it all fits fine.

I've been trying to keep my eye open for ones like the GoKnit pouch too as those seem way overpriced.   I've seen drawstring bags for men's shoes that look similar but haven't found any.

I have 2 of these Lantern Moon bags and I love them.  The handles are long enough to slip over my arm so I can knit while walking, and I like that the top is open, not drawstringed shut, so that if I need to set my knitting down in a hurry I can stuff it into the top of the bag first.

Mistake?  No... it's an Unexpected Design Element.  I put it there on purpose.  *ahem*

They are very cute, do they ship to the UK?

Also I think I saw this somewhere but has anyone had any experience with using chalk bags that climbers use?

My apologies to Leah and Craftster if I am out of line here but, I've designed a Small Project Bag/Yarn Scrotum to save my knitting from my "bag of death" (some might call it a pocket book).

 I use it/them to carry my knitting around with me.

Check out this post http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=132500.0 (or search "small project bag" and PM me if you're interested.

I am in love with Earth shoes, and when you get these each shoe comes in its own bag in the box and depending on the type of shoe you order the sizes of bags differ.  But I love using them b/c there is plenty of room and they just come with the shoes.  (Although the shoes are kind of pricey.)  But that's an option if your looking for a new pair of shoes too.  Smiley

I have the same one as this one and I LOVE it. I love that it has the drawstring, so I can pull the skein out if I need to and i love that it's got the see-thru panel.
