you can walk and knit (or whatever) at the same time.
I'm sure that they are lovely.. wonderful.. and are a delight to own-- however, I think that they are 'a little expensive for me'.. and I'd like to make my own.
I've read the description about them.. and none of the photos that I've seen are clear enough that I can figure something out- so, maybe someone has one or has seen one in person?? (I don't live where I'd be able to go and see one in person) and could tell me something?
I've noticed that a couple of the selling points.. seem to be a loop w/ a snap that you can hook over your wrist or a belt loop/etc.. *Easy enough for me to make w/out any problems..
[COLOR=red][B]and the other one says something along the lines of: a special hole or whatever for your knitting (or maybe they mean the strand of yarn) to go though for ease in knitting..[/B][/COLOR]
THIS is what I'm picturing.. a bound eyelet or gromit of some sort that you could take the yarn through the hole.. so, that the yarn 'feeds' through this hole?? AND the actual knitting of course is in your hand and on the needles.. and then, when you'd need to extract yourself from your knitting.. you'd just have to 'toss' the knitting (gently, of course! :D) into the bag.. while the knitting yarn is still actually attached through the 'gromit or button hole area?'
OR you'd have to cut the yarn off when you are finished.. because until you do so- your knitting is still attached by having the skein of yarn INSIDE the bag, being threaded through the hole, and you have the actual knitting on the needle.. on the outside of the hole.. (unless you toss it gently inside the ball of course)..
[COLOR=red][B]IS THIS THE WAY that this works?[/B][/COLOR] Is there a swivel of some sort? What is the way that it works? Any photo that I've seen is tiny.. and that was in a knitting magazine ad....
I can make a simple drawstring bag w/ a snap loop w/out any problems.. but, I'd like to do what I can to make it even better.
Thanks for helping.
