Kipster knitting project bag

 

unusual drawstring knitting bag

The Kipster is a round drawstring bag designed to carry your small knitting projects, such as socks and hats.

I worked on this design with a customer who wanted a bag that she could use while walking and knitting.
After a bit of Googling, on my part, I discovered this is a growing trend and this type of bag is commonly called a KIP bag, for Knitting in Public.

A d-ring is located between the two pockets.


This provides a place to hold while zipping the bag closed
and
also a place to attach a pair of scissors, or other tool, to avoid leaving them behind in some random waiting room, on a park bench, or on the bus. The scissors can still be dropped into the pocket, but are secured to the bag as well.

WHAT CUSTOMERS SAY

Hi Karen - I looked at your website (very cool, lots of drool over the fabric).  I've gone through at least 5 knitting bags, some costing a LOT of money (as in over 150), and the Kipster is hands-down the best.  

As some of your reviews say, the Kipster holds a cake of yarn, or two, perfectly.  All of the pockets are well-placed and handy sizes to hold everything, the zippers and rings on the outside are far more useful than one might first expect, and there is NO VELCRO, which is a huge, huge deal.  They are finished so well that I have never had a yarn snag on anything.  I use mine even when I take the huge sweater-project bag, because all the tools are so much easier to get to inside the Kipster, and the yarn can't escape and cause problems.

I'm sure more knitters would love the chance to buy one!

Thanks lots - Valarie L
