    Knitting bags?

    Hi girls. I'm wanting to buy my mum a knitting bag. She is always bringing her knitting with her in plastic bags so it dawned on me that a knitting bag would be a good gift for her!



    Any recommendations or websites or something I can look at would be much appreciated. I'm not a knitter so don't know what to look for in a bag

    Many thanks in advance

    Amongst some of the knitty types I have heard them talk about Namaste. Looks like they have specific knitting bags and accessories.

    I drool over Namaste. Etsy has lots of 'project bags' sort of pretty equivalent of a plastic bag you can then put in your hand bag. Lantern Moon and Della Q are also nice depending on your taste.

    I have seen some lovely choices on the online handmade markets.

    Try "made it" for an Australian market or Etsy for worldwide. If you are in a rush and can't wait for international postage from Etsy (or it is too pricy for postage as it can be from US) try selecting your region as Australian only on the left side bar.
    If you search "knitting bag" or "knitting tote" you should get heaps of choices, any number of styles or fabric choices.

    I bought a beauty from a UK store.

    …Oh, snap, just realised Ambersky is on the same wavelength!
