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.

We returned home yesterday after over three months away, the sun was shining and things were growing. Now is the time, I thought to myself. Nell and I went for our morning dog walk and I picked up my camera bag. When I came to use the camera I foundContinue readingNaturally…

It’s a reasonable day today and thus we have the back doors standing open. This means that Chloé can come and go as she pleases (she refuses to use the cat flaps and expects us to give her ingress and egress via the sitting room window). We were taking a coffee break in between sorting out the van, when we heard a strange Chloé-type noise. I did not like it. I wondered if she hadContinue readingThanks!
