Day Four (Thursday 14th May): Bags Of Fun.
Time to delve into that most treasured collection of tools, notions and oddments as you are asked to spill the contents of your knitting or crochet bag, caddy or other method of organisation and put your crafting unmentionables on display.
You may wish to talk about your bag of crocheting tools as a whole, or delve deep into the contents of your knitting caddy and talk about the contents each in turn. Good, clear photography can help readers familiarise with your tools, and you might just help someone find a new item for their wish-list if they are awe-struck by your pom-pom maker.
If you are looking for inspiration check out this post from 2010 to see what a crazy lady’s knitting bag looked like five years ago as I’ll be updating with new additions in this topic this year… see how the collection has grown!
Deep inside my knitting bag sits a small make up bag that I bought for $1 at a thrift shop. It contains all the little things I need for my knitting. There is a Chibi with darning needles, a few stitch holders, some scissors and a measuring tape. Also inside is this little round metal tin.
Contained in the tin are my most used item for knitting, next to the needles and yarn of course, my stitch markers. My favorite ones are handmade plain little rings with a bead on them. My most favorite ones are the ones I have received from friends. Each time I place one of these special stitch markers onto my needle I feel as though that friend is giving me help with my knitting. I take a moment to think about them and feel so grateful that they are my friend.
