Where Do You Knit?

  • Knitting When You Travel? – Think about whether your knitting is stored in a bag or carried separately
  • Knit While Commuting? – A tote on your lap is best
  • Knit At Home? – Having a larger tote bag won’t matter, you can place it beside you or on the floor.

  • Like Multi-Color Knitting Projects? – Some bags have holes to feed different yarns through
