Bags

I don’t know if you could tell or not, but Fall is approaching. (I think the Pumpkin Spice everything kind of gives it away. Which, in a way, is frustrating. It kind of takes the magic out of the change.) With Autumn comes some gorgeous weather for knitting. One of my joys is to create something cozy that I can debut in the cooler weather. There is something about it that lifts my spirits and makes everything okay for a little while.

This month I’ve been shopping for project bags, in an effort to keep the cat hair off of my yarn for a little while.  I’ve come to the sad conclusion that the hair is winning and I just want to keep it off of my yarn for a little while. Please.

Anyway, I found my way over to Etsy with the help of some awesome yarn related podcasts and found my beauties.

The first bag is a Halloween style bag from ArtInstitchtute. She has a ton of Halloween and Day of the Dead themed bags. (Also, I spied one Nightmare Before Christmas one!!) This one reminded me of the decorations that we had as kids, nostalgia always helps me buy things. I should probably stop doing that. Although, anything that brings me back to the joy of my childhood is worth it in my opinion.

Much room for copious amounts of knitted shenanigans.

The next set I found was from Bags By Awesome Grannie. And yes, she is definitely awesome! Her bags are probably my favorite. I got the camper themed bag set, and I can’t get enough of them. So much fun. She has so many other adorable designs (You know you need the hedgehog one!) and they are well made. I can see them holding up for a while.

This is the little guy. Yay Camping. :)

Perfect for smaller projects
Note the animal foot print lining. Adorable.

My knitting is happy right now. That seems really ridiculous to say, but these bags make me so ready for Fall to arrive.
