I’ve recently bought a couple of knitting bags from a website called Roseland Bags, which I am really impressed with.
I bought the first one in July after seeing one of their bags featured in ‘The Knitter’ magazine (it was part of the competition that you can enter via text). So I had a wee look at the website, and I fell in love with two of Julie’s bags. I bought the ‘Scaredy Cats’ Luxury Linen knitting bag right away.
I was so impressed with this bag when it arrived the NEXT DAY!!! It really is ‘a great bag for knitters’. It’s approx. 40cm x 36cm, so has plenty space for knitting needles, yarn, etc, and it had an inside pocket large enough to hold patterns/magazine – no more books and patterns sliding to the bottom of the knitting bag.
There’s also outside pocket for your purse or mobile:
And a place inside to store a couple of sets of knitting needles, crochet hooks , stitch holders and a pair of scissors!
The bag is machine washable on a cool wash, and the printed linen is a one-off design from Germany so this is a limited design that won’t be repeated once Julie from Roseland Bags has used up her stock of fabric.
The postage and packing was FREE, and the bag arrived by recorded delivery the day after purchase! Now you can’t beat service like that!
So, a couple of weeks later, I bought my 2nd Roseland Bag. This time the ‘Topiary’ knitting bag.
This bag is approx. 42cm x 31cm. The outer covering is chenille and is lined with a cream coloured cotton drill with a layer of wadding. It doesn’t have the extra pockets and storage areas for needles and scissors, but is still a great bag for storing and transporting my knitting.
A few of the bags are on sale just now, so well worth having a look at the Roseland Bags website!
