Knitting Project Bags for Men
The Queer Ravelry forum on Ravelry had a string of posts on project knitting bags with some new and interesting ideas.
A Manly Bag
Since I carry my knitting projects with me to hotels each week, I prefer something to carry them in that’s better than a brown paper sack, but not too purse-like. I end up using those cotton/canvas/handle/tote bags.
One of my favorite search terms for knit-project bags is in “Gardener’s Bag”
I also love looking through Lowes and Homo Depot for Tool Bags
Both of these sources seem to be good for non-standard project bags. They often have flat/hard bottoms that stand on their own and they have lots of pockets.
One of the guys on the Ravelry group put this excellent knit-travel kit together.
I bet he could market that.
I finished the sleeves and the sewing up of the Alpaca Herd Jacket.

When I try it on, the neck opening is wider than I planned (again!), so I’ll have to compensation for that with whatever collar I decide to make for it. David’s One Herd Alpaca Yarn is incredibly warm and silky soft, and the small pattern stitch I used in the garment worked out perfectly for a slightly bulky yarn.
Thaddeus is getting as bad as I am about my knitting obsession. He found out that the post office had knit stamps this year for their holiday stamp offering.
Knowing that I wouldn’t send my cards out with anything less, he bought a couple of sheets.
Carol asks, “Are you hinting for Thaddeus to get you a handheld GPS for Christmas?”
No, not really. The truth of the matter is that 92.3% of my driving is done to places that I’m already familiar with, so I wouldn’t need a GPS. It’s the 7.7% of the time that puts me in a cold sweat.
I got a couple of e-mails asking if DAD was a real disease. Mostly from folks that were glad to have finally had a way to label their panic at getting lost.
I actually made DAD up, but most of my symptoms were true.
