in case you didn’t know, I knit

I’m wearing a handknit sweater, a handspun handknit scarf, a pair of handspun handknit mitts, and, usually, a handspun handknit hat. But in case you didn’t know I knit, I’ve also added a bag that says, “knit.”

I can’t tell you how much I seriously love this bag. Jen sent it to me as a gift, since it’s basically perfect for getting around on crutches with. Up until I got it, I’d been using a backpack, which works okay. But the problem with a backpack is that you have to stop and take it off to get anything out of it (obviously you don’t have to do that if you are only wearing it with one strap, but I can’t really do that on crutches any more than I can wear a regular purse or tote bag – it bangs into the crutch). So a messenger-style bag is perfect. I can wear it on the front of my body for easy access, but it doesn’t get in the way of the crutches at all. And the size is perfect! As a knitting bag, yes, but also for using as a regular tote, which is how I’ve been using it. And it doesn’t scream “college student” the way my backpack was doing. And this color is so perfect for my wardrobe. Love it.

This is a new offering in Jen’s shop , and in honor of the first anniversary of her shop, she is giving one of these away (and with yarn!). If you haven’t already, take a minute to go over and leave her a blog comment.

Thank you so much, Jen! I LOVE it.

(p.s. I’m pictured here with only one crutch because I’m making progress, y’all!)

  1. I have so many of Jen’s bags. It’s taking pretty much all the will power I can muster not to buy this new one! You’re not helping!

    Yay for one crutch!

  2. The bag is great — as are the other handknits you have going on!! Glad to see the foot’s getting better.

    Have been very careful in my high heeled clog boots….

  3. Love the bag! I’ve been on crutches for a week (but I only sprained my knee, so I’m using them less and less), and my backpack is indeed a pain to use!
