Love to knit on vacation or at the beach? This amazing bag is large enough to fit your knitting, pattern, knitting needles, scissors, cell phone, a blanket (not too big, you know), some medium-sized towels, a novel, a water bottle (or two), a magazine, a toy for your child, sunglasses. . . all in a way that doesn't require digging around at the bottom of a huge bag for all the little stuff.
Yes, if you take it to the beach it might get sand in the wool -- so brush it out! The size and facility with which everything can be found is worth the trouble of a little sand in your wooly bag! Make it unfelted if you must! But you suffer sand in your towels, and sand in your shoes, and sand in the spines of your books, for the love of the sun, so why not in a felted bag?
The bag is knit using a double-strand of worsted weight yarn.
Includes instructions for making sunflowers.
