I’ve been a knitter, off and on, for 20-some years and have only recently started using project bags. Of course, now I have bunches and I love them all.
Before I used project bags I used plastic zip bags, which would tear, needles would poke through and I always stuffed them too full to zip closed.
Project bags are fun. They come in bunches of patterns and sizes. They stay closed. Best of all they somehow make a pile of UFOs, like the one above, seem downright happy. I always felt such accusation from plastic zip bags.
I can also tag them.
Name of the project, needles size, anything I need to know to grab the right bag.Â Another use for tags that I love, too.
