knitting bags for travel

005-closed drawstring

I feel like we have been doing a lot of traveling this summer. I have been bringing my knitting along for something to do in the car/plane/etc. I wanted something that could be put in my purse, without adding too much extra bulk.

One of my least favorite parts of trying to travel with knitting is having my ball of yarn getting all tangled with what I am knitting.

To combat this, I made a little bag to hold my ball of yarn with a grommet to keep the yarn from getting tangled. I used a magnetic closure to keep it closed. I debated using a zipper, but didn’t want anything that could get tangled.

Now that my yarn was separate from my project, I needed something to keep my knitting from getting mixed up with everything in my purse.


I ended up making a simple drawstring bag that was big enough to hold everything along with an extra skein of yarn and some small knitting notions. It’s not fancy, but it works. ┬áSo far my project is still looking great.
