I've been bad. I haven't posted in a looong time. I slacked off after my birthday. Then a week later when I was ready to write I realized I'd sent my camera with J on a 10-day trip. And what's a post without pictures?

So I'm excited to finally show off my new knitting storage.

First up, my new project bag:

Skull case

Made of vinyl, very sturdy and resistant to needle punctures. The plastickiness (very technical textile term) protects it from water and makes it easy to wipe off any spills.

Skull case

Technically its a pencil case made by Paperchase and found at Borders Bookstore for $6.99. But at 12" x 5 7/8" (30cm x 15cm) it is the perfect size for a small knitting project. And I couldn't resist the skull pattern. Creepy cute and colorful.

There were many other tempting pencil cases available. Perfect for projects, dpns, and other knitting items. With a sigh of regret I had to leave them behind for another day.

Next up, my knitting caddy:

Knitting Caddy

This is a clear vinyl case with a metal frame and outer pockets. There's plenty of room to shove all sort of stuff. I was able to cram my needle case, a book, stitch markers, beads, tape measures, highlighter tape, miscellaneous items, and lamby into it with room to spare!

I love that it stands up on its own. It also folds down flat for easy storage and you can unsnap the vinyl case from the frame if you wish.

My Mother-in-law gave this to me for my B-day, I think she found it at a local knitting store in the Chicago area. Its about 10 1/2" wide by 6" tall and 5" or 6" deep. I couldn't figure out the brand. I'll have to see if she knows.

Lastly, the Option Needle Tip Stand:

Ok so I don't actually own this. I saw it in the newest Knit Picks catalog and now covet it. This is definately a want, not a need. I already have storage for my needle tips. And I don't know why I want to put my needle tips on display. BUT. I. DOO!

And its only $9.99

This is one for the wish list. Sigh...
