It's Not A Pair Of Socks !

This is not another pair of socks but it's .....

.... the Knitting Needle Knitting Bag ! I actually knitted something different & this was a quick knit & I finished it a week ago but it took a while to get the motivation to do the seaming & the lining & it's done !


Pattern : Knitting Daily (free pattern)

Yarn : 3 balls of Rowan Cork (merino & nylon & it was a free gift with my Rowan's subscription)
Needles : Knit Picks 6mm & 5mm circular needles


Isn't the purple lining lovely & I sewed it all by myself but I think it was quite easy as I just had to machine the sides & turned it inside out. The stitching to the bag took a little bit of adjusting & it's not a perfect fit but I am happy with it!

I will be carrying this bag with my WIPs to City Nits tomorrow ...

You now have the coolest knitting bag around and will be the envy of us all at City Nits tomorrow. A fab way to promote knitting in public too. Might have to go and dig out my calmer and knit one too.

Your bag is so cute, I love the needle supports. The lining is so nicely done, I admire beautiful sewing. The yarn in the bag is pretty, too.

What a very, very cool knitting bag this is! Actually, this one's very high up on my "Have to knit" list too ever since I saw the free pattern - seeing your version of it now made me want to cast on for it immediately!
