The Knitter's Tote is hardly a knitter's tote without yarn inside it.

  • I started to hyperventilate the moment I laid eyes on this. Could it be? The perfect tote? I can’t wait to find out when it is in my hot little hands!

  • It’s the perfect size and shape of tote!!! I wonder if it’s possible to order it without the dot, though?

    • You could always stitch a patch or applique over it.


  • A handsome tote indeed, but totes don’t close securely – well, they don’t close at all. My template for the perfect knitting bag would be based on a gym bag: a zippered main compartment, zippered auxiliary compartments. (Right now, in fact, I’m using such a bag, a freebie from a flight-simulator company that the hubster passed on to me). Would Julia care to take a crack at such an item?

  • So beautiful! Wish I could afford one!

  • Just one question: how does one clean this bag?

    • Industrial wool felt is quite soil-resistant but I would recommend dry cleaning to keep its shape.

  • This is a beautiful item. Nice work!

    • The red dot reminded me immediately of the best red dot I know – gallery sales! – which is very suitable for a design that would look very much at home in the MOMA shop.

  • what a lovely thing. a work of art. a way to support an artisan. a place to put a few knitting projects.

  • I agree with Gretchen… my perfect tote would have a zipper on top. And, it would also have sewn handles which encircled the bottom, rather than riveted in two places near the top. With any heavy use, rivets will pull out of felt, sorry. I would also choose canvas for the fabric. Oh, wait… my Land’s End tote is just like that. Who knew?!

  • I like to quilt, and I sew my own bags. I prefer a secure closure across the top—this bag needs a zipper!
