Knitting on the Go

As much as we'd all like to have a couple of free hours to knit every day, in reality it rarely happens. It seems that the "little" details like work, family and even housework and other commitments get in the way. Instead of sitting and knitting with our feet up and a cold glass of lemonade (here in Ontario we are in the middle of a major summer heat wave), most of us need to grab a few precious minutes with our needles in snippets of time between other activities.

This is where the "Go Knit" by KnowKnits bag comes in. It is a lightweight, colourful, bag made out of durable ripstop nylon. It is available in 3 sizes to accomodate various size projects, has a drawstring to keep everything in place, a yarn loop to guide your yarn and a snap strap to attach the bag to your belt, purse or wrist. I always have the small size bag, complete with a sock in progress within easy reach in my vehicle. It's perfect whenever you have unexpected waiting time. The few rounds that you knit while waiting for the kids or stopped in traffic can quickly add up to a finished project.

This is an example of how resourceful one of our customers is with her Go Knit bag. Roselle attaches the bag to her treadmill as she walks. Knitting and exercise at the same time - perfectly efficient! She is productive with her knitting time and still manages to get a great workout. Very impressive!
