della QCleo Yarn Caddy & Edict Project Bag
Where to Find: della Q
Let's start with the Cleo Yarn Caddy. Are you one of those unashamed knitters who cast on project after project - gasp - without finishing one first? Not a monogamous knitter, you say? Me neither... and Cleo is our dream bag!
Cleo stands up all on her own and is full of pockets on both the inside and out! The 4 large exterior pockets are perfect for holding yarn, needles and small projects, while the 2 small interior pockets (one of which is zippered) are great for notions and other little things. Cleo is not just another knitting bag however, she is truly a caddy, perfect for organizing your projects. She will be your best friend at home and on the go, just don't toss her over your shoulder... Cleo prefers to swing in style next to you.
I love that I can store a medium to large size project in Cleo, and have the ability to keep everything I need for that project in one bag. What I love even more, however, is that I can store several of my smaller projects all in this one handy caddy. Whether I'm knitting at home in front of the TV, or in the car on the go, I know everything I need for those projects is all in one place. And, when I am on the go, I have choices! No more regrets that I didn't bring project x with me, and no more pouting when I realize I forgot some essential tools at home and can't continue with a particular project.
The Cleo Yarn Caddy measures 8" wide and stands 12.5" tall. She is currently available in two beautiful patterns; Mojito Beach (as you see here in this review) and Tequila Sunrise. Snatch one up now and organize your projects in style!
Now, onto the super cute "paws off my knitting" Edict Project Bag. Is there not a more perfect small project bag for me than this?! della Q developed a fun line of Edict project bags to replace all those un-snazzy ziploc bags we crafters tend to grab in a pinch. Measuring 11" wide by 12" high and made of cotton, these drawstring bags are perfect for all of our small project needs. They even have an interior pocket to stash some notions! The bags are available with several crafty sayings, including Hat Project, Sock Project, Random Project, Scarf Project, Tangled String (oh how I adore this one!), Cheaper Than Therapy and Shh... I'm Counting. Of course, Paws Off My Knitting is the best and Della knew that when she suggested she send me one along with the Cleo Yarn Caddy! Well, maybe she wouldn't say it's the best, but she certainly realized I would! Super fun doggy saying + purple = fabulous and my new favorite small project bag! But hey Della, how about adding a "Stop Sniffing My Yarn" or "No Wet Noses on my Knitting" bag to the collection... I could use one of those with Teutul around!
