I've always put my knitting in plastic bags. Although I have found it annoying when the needles make holes; especially in the beginning of a new project before I can "hide them" in the knitting. By chance I came across this practical little thing... from Knowknits:

Although I thought it silly (as I can make it myself, right!?), I bought it (together with some yarn from KnitPicks). Needless to say I am VERY pleased with it! It is lightweight, sturdy and increadibly practical for bringing your knitting "on the go"!

The size is just right for a small beginning project like socks, shawls, sleeves etc. As the knitting grows, they are returned to their plastic bags. They do come in different sizes, though...

Mind you - Lilla Stickfrossa have some gorgeous knitting totes as well with a more personal touch.

I just have to give you knitters this link -

A swedish girl sewing both useful and pretty items to help you organize your needles, knitting and assesoires. She normally puts new things on her website on Fridays, and you have to be quick to get hold of something - they are sold within a wink! At least within the day it seems like! Photo is borrowed from her website.

Anyway - it's well worth visiting - both for buying and inspiration. Needless to say I am very happy with my beautiful, bright red needle-holder?

She's got lots of other nice and useful Knitting totes so her website is worth a visit smiley
