Scaredy Cat Kipster Knitting Project Bag
Scaredy Cat Kipster Knitting Project Bag

This cute cats at the movies 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.

sock knitting bag
A d-ring is located between the two pockets.

This provides a place to hold while zipping the bag closed
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

"Your work is excellent.  I couldn't find anything that even made me go "Hmmm" on close examination and three days living with it.
The design is great - sits up, steady when I'm pulling on the yarn, nothing catching, all my goodies in the bag where I can find it, there are several sets of needles, crochet hooks, circulars in it without crowding the bag or keeping it from closing.  I added a set of 7" double pointed needles and it didn't burp. :)
I like the ring on the top of the bag, I find I end up carrying the bag by it.  I need to get a carabiner out and hook it to my purse like I do my keys.
  Summary:  YAY!

“The fabric you use inside the Kipster is brilliant -- certain types of my very expensive skeins can begin to develop a "halo", especially when a WIP takes me a long time, and even mohair looks perfect when I use the KIPSTER. Friction inside a project bag is not a good thing, even if you always use a center pull cake/ball. Just one more selling feature for your bags!” AMG
