Project Bags

I recently added a small item to a Lakeland order to reach the free postage level. It didn’t cost very much, and I had little idea what I would use it for, but I think it’s going to be disproportionately useful. What was it? A pack of Lakeland Home Office 10 Large Zipper Bags ((£5.87 for 10, Ref: 1726)).

The bags are a sturdy grade polythene, though not particularly heavy – but this means that they are easily folded or compressed and that’s a benefit. Sized at 45 x 35 cm (17.5″ x 13.5″) with a zipper closure at the top. Stacks of room  for a ball of yarn, a pair of full sized straight needles and your current WIP. Moth-proof, portable, and easy to spot what you are looking for. The only down side that I can see is that the bags aren’t all that tough and if you put sharp pointy things into them the inevitable will happen. Point protectors are on order (I owe SpinningGill one anyway, cos I’ve lost hers)

These are the bags that I’ve prepared the Aestlight yarn sets in, ready for ferry-knitting.

Van Nessa : Her Leak

Home from Melle, we set about cleaning the van in preparation for going out again. At the moment we are hoping to go out for at least one night every week in continuing efforts to break the cats in (or down!) Mr Snail was cleaning the bathroom. Although we haven’t used the shower we had… Continue reading Van Nessa : Her Leak
