My favorite travel knitting GARDEN bag

I have a wonderful bag. It's one of a set made for me by Ysabeau. The HUGE bag is terrific, it fits across my shoulders, nestles in front and holds everything I need as I wheel myself around. One of the pictures below is of me wearing it last year. It's got an ocean theme, and it incredibly useful, with pockets of every size, yet all of them easy to get to.

The smaller bag was a gift when Ysabeau heard I could no longer garden, and it is perfect for knitting in the car, or when I sit in waiting rooms. The handle is lined with flannel which keeps it from slipping on my arm, and as I knit its at the perfect height for letting the yarn feed to my needles.

On top of that, it IS a garden. She beaded it meticulously, and added all sorts of terrific little touches to make it even more beautiful. Enjoy the pics!
