What's In Your Bag ?

Back in June I shared a post about my knitting bag and a few new accessory pieces I picked up that matched my bag.

Today I wanted to share what I keep in my bag, as well as how I display my knitting tools, etc. 

Every knitter has different things inside their bag but there are some things that are essential.

For example: 

  • Needle gauge
  • Calculator
  • Stitch Holder
  • Scissors
  • Stitch Markers (various sizes)
  • Yarn Needle
  • Tape measure
  • Sock Ruler (wonderful for toe up sock knitting)
  • Cable Needles
The sock ruler can be purchased online at www.sockruler.com

Not only do I have my accessory pouch filled with these essential items, I also keep this handy little organizer on the table next to me where I sit to knit.  It house a few additional pieces, such as needle protectors and row counters.  I also tuck it into my knitting bag when I travel to make sure I have everything I need for the projects I’m working on and carrying inside my bag.

I also like to carry my small tipped Knit Picks Options Interchangeable Needle Set.  This comes in handy when knitting hats or sleeves and cuffs on a sweater.

I like to keep this little antique tray on my craft desk with a few fun things, including my collection of embroidery scissors, LED portable lights and a needle keeper. I also like to use my antique pressed glass vases to keep my collection of Tunisan Crochet Hooks, DPNs, Straight Needles and stitch markers in.  Pretty and well contained.

I also like to keep all my interchangeable circular needle sets and my Brittany Walnut straight needles inside this basket.  I also keep another pouch of essential knitting items as a back up, along with a small container of stitch markers.

How do your knitting tools organized ?
Do you carry something else in your knitting bag that you consider a must ?

Until next time ~ be creative!
