Summer’s “Walkabout”

Posted on: September 13, 2012

When you are knitting or crocheting as much as I have been lately, sometimes you just need to get up and walk around. That can be a bit of a problem as your yarn trails behind you. I decided to make a little lightweight bag that I could wear to hold my yarn so that I could work and walk at the same time…hence, the “walkabout”! I used some fabric from an old sample book that I had which is why the sides are two different colors. I put a zipper in the top so that I could keep my yarn from pulling out and attached some simple nylon cord. Then I punched an eyelet in one side for the yarn to come through. It works great! Now I just have to be careful of where I’m walking when I’m looking at my work at the same time. 🙂

Watch where you’re walking! You don’t need another broken shoulder. That would put a huge cramp in your style. 😦

I imagine this would be wonderful for holding in-progress granny squares!

About Summer

I have been knitting, crocheting, sewing and embroidering since childhood. It is great fun to combine many of these activities in handcrafting hats and other apparel for wee ones. I'm delighted that you have found my site and hope you enjoy browsing through my latest creations.

Most of the hats are made with 100% cotton. Prices range from $25 to $35 depending on time required in making that design. I also custom design hats and other apparel for special occasions or to match the colors of your favorite team. Just let me know what you have in mind!
