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.

I have elected to tackle the prompts not in date order necessarily but to seize upon prompts that offer me space in which to write down the things that I am feeling the need to say. Even if I need to crowbar it in. The thing is, I am going to continue to be short of time and space in which to write and so a two-for-one is useful and I hope to do as many of those as I can. Seems like a plan? … Continue readingA Month in France: Nothing is Lost
