These are all SOOO darned cute. But I LOVE the black one with the pick Lab who got caught with the knitting.

These are so cool. How do people come up with all these neet ideas?

wildwoodflwr said...

I love all the floral prints! It is so hard to find a classy looking floral print that isn't too old fashioned or too busy. These are just right.

RTing. @wildwoodflwr

Whoops, I might have purchased my favorite(s). I love the divided bags - especially the French Wallpaper one. Love that fabric.

I like the red batik. Em

Jacy said...

I'm eyeing the Sweet Jasmine bag. What a beautiful fabric...and I've heard such amazing things about the bags, like that they are the perfect size, have a place for everything you need, and there's no annoying velcro or anything that your knitting would stick to.

I'm a sucker for anything by Amy Butler, so I'd have to pick my fave as the Sweet Jasmine print sock bag. Soooooooo beautiful!

I absolutely love the blue and pink Amy Butler prints and the brocades. What beautiful bags!

I'm definitely tweeting about this shop!

k8 said...

I love the Medium Laurel Burch cats bag! I love a bag that's big enough to hold a whole sweater!

CindyD said...

Medium KIP Knitting Project Bag Laurel Burch Fabulous Felines in Garden is my favorite. I have made qilts with her fabrics,

Misha - mishag on Rav said...

Oh my - I love the Amy Butler bags! Her fabric is just so pretty and they are perfect little KIP bags to throw in a bigger bag for take-along knitting.

KelleBelle said...

Any Amy Butler fabric will suck me in, so it's the Amy Butler French Wallpaper bag that is giving me the drools!!!

Eileen said...

I love the Sweet Jasmine sock bag, all are just gorgeous though. Great idea & it looks to be very useful with the pockets & all.

trh said...

wow! Someone emptied her shop when I wasn't looking! I had my eye on a dark background oriental type fabric bag . . . but she's still got the black & red brocade that I love and the chrysanthemum brocade. I didn't get even the little mini bags in my box, so I finally broke down and bought one (anime fabric) and now I use that all the time. I think it would be so nice to have a couple more to organize the projects in my big bag - especially when I'm traveling and have several at a time in the bag. (Finally got a mini bag in one of my boxes, Yay!)

Rois said...

I love that floppy orange messanger bag! It's cute and has a cell phone pocket which is a must in any and all bags for me.

cnuland said...

My favorite is the red batik bag.

Bejeweled said...

The bad kitties!!!

Autumn said...

I think the bad kitties one is adorable!

Nightphoenix said...

Gotta love the mini KIP bag with the bad kitties. My kitty is exactly why everything knitting must always be stored in bags.

Martin and Jessica said...

These bags look great! And I love the comparison between the price of the bags (medium) and a skein of sock yarn. For the price of a skein of sock yarn, I could have something cool to carry my sock knitting in!

This one's my favorite: Divided KIP Small Sock Knitting Bag Amy Butler French Wallpaper! They're all look so beautiful & useful!

Elizabeth said...

The Amy Bulter lacework in olive is a pretty bag!

treehugger said...

These bags are great! And they're so affordable, too. My two favorites are the Knitmare on Elmstreet small KIP bag and the Divided small sock bag in Amy Butler Dandelion Field. I really like the idea of being able to hold two balls of yarn separately to knit two socks at once. I am currently working on a two-at-a-time sock project and have to keep the yarn in two separate zip-top bags. This is a much more attractive option! :)

Toby said...

Sweet Jasmine is my fave. And talk about affordable! I consider myself a competent seamstress and I'd buy one of these at that price.

Perry said...

Love this colorway!

I love the small KIP bag for sock knitting in black and white batik. Those bags are awesome!

rebelhousewife said...

The Knitmare on elm street bag for sure. That is hilarious.

Rachel Suntop said...

I love all the Japanese fabrics in many of the bags. Mikayo stands out particularly.

KatyaR said...

Love the bags! My faves are the Laurel Burch Fabulous Felines in Garden and the Amy Butler French Wallpaper.

KT said...

I couldn't decide, so I asked my 5yo, and she (predictably) picked the "Under the Sea" medium bag with the fish. They're talking about the ocean this week in preschool, what did I expect? Actually, I like the divided bags the best - that way I can keep my keys/phone/wallet on one side and my knitting on the other, and only have to deal with one bag! KT (Katherine Vaughan Designs)

alittleweirdo said...

Love the dragonfly batik bag! Seems very summery :)

Emily said...

I love the Amy Butler French Wallpaper bags. That blue with the big pink lotus-y design is just gorgeous.

Tamara said...

I love the small KIP drawstring Knitting bag in the Under the Sea fabric!!!

Hannah said...

I'm pretty fond of the KIP Small Project Bag Amy Butler French Wallpaper one. It doesn't look like wallpaper though.

adioskitty said...

I love love love the Small Project Bag in Amy Butler French Wallpaper - it looks like exactly what I need! Such a good idea to have pockets inside too, and how thoughtful not to put metal items on for people who fly!

beautiful stuff.

Turtle said...

I like the Medium Project Bag Celtic Knots. I have a bad habit of starting new projects before the last is finished and so am always looking for more project bags!

OMG! Those bags are awesome! I like the KIP Bag Small Sock Knitting Project Bag Sakata. The pockets inside are awesome too!

Sharon Rose said...

The black & red brocade is great, but honestly I like the oceanic ones even better. My two project bags are sushi and koi, so it would fit in with my "fish" theme perfectly!

Awesome bags! Could definitely use more myself, since I seem to keep casting on and not finishing up anything lately! Can I blame it on the heat?!

donna said...

ooooh, it has to be the Tempest medium project bag. I LOVE that fabric!

arly said...

Hmmmm- never have had a project bag - only my lap and a part of the sofa that no one sits on. I like the messenger bag, it's quite roomy , can probably hold a snack also.

Jenni said...

I just love the skull small KIP bag, that would be so nice to have when I take my sock knitting to work!!

Bronwyn said...

I love the Batik Flourish bag. And the divided bag looks really handy.
