Tidy Mind,Tidy Stitches - 2KCBWDAY3

My knitting organisation is non-existent at the moment. We moved back in September, and I still haven't actually organised my craft and knitting stuff. It is all kept in the corner of the spare room, but there is no order to the chaos.

So instead of just showing you a picture of clear plastic tubs overflowing with yarn, a little set of draws filled with notions, and piles of stuff currently in use, I thought I would show you my favourite organisation thing.

It is this little drawstring bag I made to keep in a small project, I use it to take my current pair of socks to my knitting nights, or on the bus. I fell in love with this knit themed fabric from Aunty Cookie. I have a metre of it, and all I've used is this tiny scrap. I want to one day make a super-dooper knitting bag and use this fabric as a feature.

Anyway, I try to keep in this bag a pair of small scissors, a tape measure, some stitch markers and a wool needle. Usually, these things have been taken out, and all that is in there currently is a tape measure and a couple of stitch markers rattling around in the bottom!
I really do love this little bag, every time I look at it, it makes me smile. Maybe I should make a few more, one for each currently unfinished sock (see last post!)?

I love Auntie Cookie's stuff. Have you seen the little sketches of people she did this week? I really want one but I'm broke.

Oh, you are such an enabler. I didn't know about her and I now am going to have to follow and get some of her fabrics!!

Those people sketches are too cute

That fabric is perfect for project bags! I can see why you love it and it will be fabulous as a big bag too.

You have created one of the cutest project bags I have ever seen. The choice in fabric and color works so well together. I might have to dig around for my sewing machine to make my own bag.
