When I saw my mother-in-law last weekend, she gave me this bag as an early birthday present. My birthday’s in January, but I’m not going to see her again before then. “Oooh!” I may have squeaked. “A knitting bag!”
She looked confused. “It’s not a knitting bag,” she told me, “it’s a purse. It has a glasses case–”
“I can put stitch markers in there!”
“–and a little cosmetics bag–”
“For my ruler and some bigger notions!”
Eventually we agreed that while it hadn’t been sold as a knitting bag, it’s going to be one now. It’s not exactly what I’d carry for an everyday purse, but as something to carry yarn and medium-sized works in progress, it’s perfect! In fact, this may be the best gift she’s ever gotten me.
One year she bought me a cape. I kid you not.
