If you are like me then you likely have several works in progress (wips) going at all times. This post is dedicated to yarn keepers. They also act as small portable cases (because another post is going to be dedicated to those wips in hibernation, in non portable cases and larger portable cases).
Next is another yarn keeper that is slightly larger. It is large enough to hold several yarn cakes in it at a time as well as the current project I am working on. As you can see, it currently holds the Shaw's Cove shawl that I am working on. It also has a single hole at the top to feed the yarn through, but as I store my projects inside, I rarely use it. It has a handle as well. You can visit their website Stitchin' Post and contact them to see if sell them anymore. I bought mine almost five years ago!
Sometimes I store the project I am working on in this as well. However, I tend to use softer bags more-so because I can fit them in a bigger bag or set them on top of my purse. But this is perfect for a fragile project that you don't want to worry about anything smashing it on accident.
There are many bags to utilize for making your wips portable. The few mentioned above just happen to be what I use. However if you look up Chica bags, Lantern Moon or any other yarn keepers you are sure to find one you like. In the future, once my sewing machine is working I also have some designs planned for these types of bags that I plan to sell.
In the mean time, what type of yarn keepers/ small portable bags do you use for your wips?
