so my friend likes to knit during lectures because it helps her focus on what the professor is saying plus she gets to be productive.  However, it was always a hassle because her ball of yarn would always be all over the place or if she were knitted with two different colors, the two balls of yarn would battle and it wouldn't end up good.

so as her christmas gift, I decided to make her a knitting bag!

it's a rather large bag with two huge interior pockets.  the pockets have a keyhole in them in which you put the yarn and that kepts it from getting tangled.  The bag is also big enough to hold her school books as well.  It's made out of brown corduroy with an interior layer of thick canvas and is lined with a fun cotton print.  It has sturdy straps that are covered in the corduroy material.

the whole thing



keyhole.  you undo the loop, and put your yarn into the space and then close the loop and your yarn is trapped within the keyhole.

cell phone / keys pocket

this give a better sense of the actual size.

thanks for looking!

thats rad!  i have been using just a little drawstring bag for my yarn recently, keeps it from getting tangled and rolling all over the place.

I love that bag, and it's such a perfect idea! The bag I'm using for yarn/needles right now is tiny Sad But you've inspired me to make a bigger, better one!

Looking for extra sock yarn! PM me if you have any you'd like to get rid of! Willing to swap for it!
