I'll be staying with a friend who has recently learned to knit, so I used another of Terry Atkinson's tutorials and made a knitting tote as a thank you gift. I modified the tutorial a little bit and added a lining, since I knew all those frayed ends would haunt my dreams. I used the scraps from my Lickety Split bag to make the sack.
The beatuy of the sack, supposedly, is that the yarn can feed right out of the drawstring opening and not get tangled or knotted while you work. The zipper pocket on the side hold whatever knitting accoutrements you'd like to lug around with you.
I'm including a pattern book and a skien of yarn to sweeten the deal just a little bit.
