I have a drawstring bag from Vegancraftastic's Etsy shop. It's not a bag within a bag, but it protects my projects, and it's cuuute.

Heh, this is pretty much what I do.

I know Namaste makes vegan knitting bags: http://namasteinc.com/products/handbags ... nggear.php

Ideally, I'd like to have a pouch that looks like a gigantic, rectangular pencil case/tote bag/envelope clutch with a zip. Ideal dimensions would be something like 45 cm width, 20 cm depth and 20 cm height. That way I can stuff my knitting needles and the work in progress on it all inside, zip it up and toss it in my humongous handbag without the yarn and needles falling out or my work in progress moving around so stitches can fall off. (Been there.)

So yeah, I'm pretty specific in what I want. Maybe I should just teach myself how to sow, occupy my moms sowing machine and just make one myself. But I'd prefer just buying it, to be honest. I've been searching Etsy for the past hour, but haven't found what I was looking for yet. Any suggestions as to what search terms I might use? Maybe there's a word that describes this particular type of bag ? Most bags of this type that I find are makeup bags or pencil cases, and thus way too small.

I bet there are people on etsy who make custom bags. You might have to email the shop owner with your specifications but worth a shot.

I have the solution: I will just knit a bag of the appropriate size and ask my mum really sweetly if she could please please put a lining + zipper in there.

I just about accidentally skipped a decrease row because my mind was still in automatic garter stitch (or stockinette in the round) mode.
Is it just me (and the sleep deprivation), or does anyone else experience that they're turning into a knitting robot when there's too little variety in the pattern?

This is me, knitting garter stitch projects:

I'm really proud of this one! When we moved in, our fold-down ironing board had a dirty gross looking towel on it, and it's obviously been water-damaged because the wood is warped in the middle. I sort of upholstered it with heat-resistant batting and fabric from an old curtain that I sewed together, to even out the warping and make a nice surface to iron on. Then I sewed a cover from this cute fabric I got at Verb in Oakland a couple weeks ago, it's hard to tell but it has squirrels and turtles and hedgehogs on it near the trees. :) Anyway I made the cover so I could wash it if need be. I'm happy with how it turned out and it's going to make ironing cuter!

I spent the last week or so trying to figure out double pointed needles and I finally got it:

Yay! well done! Love the buttons.

Which reminds me: I still need to pick out buttons for the baby dinosaur cardi for my friend that finished last weekend while rewatching Doctor Who episodes:

You guys, this is going too far: I dreamt about finding a store that sold knitting bags. (It was on the pier in Brighton and the owner of the store and I got into an argument why the yellow ones were 10 quid cheaper than the blue ones.) Bizarre.

Also, here's my current project. It started out as an 8-hour-shawl, but then it got too big, and now I'm turning it into some sort of blanket type cover thing to put on my comfy chair.

That is adorable! Is the dinosaur done with intarsia or stitched on afterwards?

Thanks! :D
I decided to stitch it on afterwards, so there are no runs, and the backside looks a lot neater than my sometimes a bit sloppy colourwork. At first I tried to mimic knit stitches, but it didn't look good, so I ripped it out again and did cross stitch. (If you know, you can see it if you look really close.)
I want my friend's baby to be the best dressed baby in town. Thinking of knitting a pirate themed sweater next. ;)

Also: awesome, Paloma! This looks like sooo much work.
And yes, more colour everywhere, plz!

If anyone has a recommendation for vegan DK weight yarn that's NOT mostly cotton or linen (acrylic is fine), then let me know! I'm trying to do a sweater KAL with kittee but the vegan offerings for DK weight yarn so far mostly seem too heavy because of the fiber content.

berocco comfort dk is 50/50 nylon/acrylic. it's my favorite yarn ever. i made my owls sweater from the comfort chunky and it super soft and washes well.

I do love Comfort, but I think it's a knitted tube yarn (ie, it's not "spun"), but I think might be too slippery for this sweater (it's got some structural details that I think need some stick to make them really pop and stand up).
