Fantastic Knitting Bags

We have another new sample in the store.
Pattern: Guernsey Wrap by Jared Flood (purchased on Ravelry)
Yarn: Rowan Hemp Tweed

My shawl was knit in 9 balls. I wanted it to be longer so we added in more pattern rows. If you knit to the pattern length then you will need 7 balls. 
A blend of 75% wool and 25% hemp, resulting in a modern tweed effect, soft to the touch yarn which is a joy to knit. Wool and hemp create 'breathable' knitted fabrics which are cool to wear in warm weather and warm in colder temperatures. Hemp fibre is resistant to stretching so does not distort with use and naturally softens with wear - hemp does not wear out it wears in!


We have these great, colourful, inexpensive knitting bags in the store. They look like laminated paper and are super, super strong. I've been carrying one to work with my laptop, knitting and wallet in it. It is standing up great. Lynn carries one with her knitting and loves the bag.

A large knitting tote with an outside clear pocket- perfect for storing your pattern in! Includes an inside pocket and has a zipper closure. Measures: 36 x 13 x 36cm. $27.
An extra large knitting bag for those ambitious knitting projects! With pockets both inside and out, there is plenty of room to tuck away snacks, notions, your wallet and phone. Zipper closure with handles. Measures: 52 x 23 x 33cm. $35.

This bag is big enough to hold an afghan or sweater quantity of yarn.


A medium sized knitting bag with a clear outside pocket. Includes inside pocket and zipper closure. Measures: 35 x 12 x 28cm
Don't wait too long though. The supplier has limited stock. Once a bag is sold out I don't know if we can get more stock.

Just before I was about to hit Publish we received a shipment of more bags. There is a brand new colour in the large bag.

I'd like to say that it was knitting time but we received lots of Cascade 220 today and then a huge box came from Rowan. It is filled with Felted Tweed and Hemp Tweed. We've got our work cut out for us if the store is going to be in order before we go home.
