Really, there is hardly anything to say except: THIS BOX BAG!!! I LOVE IT!!! IT IS PERFECT!!! EVERYTHING I’VE ALWAYS WANTED (in a box bag)!!! WHY DID I WAIT SO LONG!!! I AM IN LOVE WITH THIS BOX BAG!!! Etc. As you can see, there isn’t much to say.
I have loved my Splityarn goodies for a long time. My very first purchase from Caro’s shop, maybe six years ago, was a robot-themed camera strap.
Since then, I have accumulated two regular-sized box bags (which I use as project bags for such things as cowls, scarves, socks, and shawls), one long pouch (perfect for dpns, crochet hooks, and needle tips), and one wee little pouch (where I keep all my stitch markers). I absolutely adore everything I’ve ever bought from Caro – her workmanship is top-notch and her fabric picks are always swoon-worthy.
I’ve been intrigued by her Biggie Box Bags ever since she started making them. A sweater-sized project bag? Yes, please. With a great box structure and a sweet little handle for carrying? Sounds perfect. I’m here to tell you that it is, in fact, as perfect as it sounds.
I ordered the bag weekend before last, and it arrived in a flash. At first, all I could do was admire it. I took it out and set it on my desk and let it stay that way for a couple of days. It was Just! So! Pretty! But over this past weekend, I did finally put it to use. I put my Autumn Reis, along with several balls of yarn, in it. Perfect fit, plus I feel so organized with all my sweater-makings so tidy.
What’s more, even though the bag fits an entire sweater-in-progress plus yarn, it isn’t so ginormous that I can’t carry it around wherever I need to go.
Getting to use this gorgeous bag is actually helping with my motivation to keep working on my sweater, even though I have felt a bit bogged down and discouraged with it. In other words, the Biggie Box Bag is magical, y’all.
