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!

That little closing pocket on the inside is genius!  I don't like the ones where you feed the yarn through and then there's no way to get it out without cutting it.  The fact that it feeds it through the top is great, because she'd be able to stand and knit, too.  I never thought I'd have to stand and knit until I voted this year.   Roll Eyes  I really like your colour combination, and cord is a great fabric for a knitting bag. 

I've been plotting my own perfect knitting bag for years (I swear Sad) and the button pocket will be a great addition to it.
