On this episode of The Knit Show with Vickie Howell we go bag crazy! We share some of our favorite project bags; learn how to crochet a boho-inspired purse; take a field trip to an artisanal mill to see how yarn is made; knit a felted bag made unique with different hardware and straps, and get a quick tip for how your favorite knitting tool can also be used as an integral part of your next, big bag!

*For questions about any of the projects on this episode, please contact the guests directly via social media.

Going through the vault I discovered a box of unsold subscriptions patterns from my wildly popular Purse Pattern of the Month Club. These are limited edition, signed and numbered print patterns for 12 different purses. Once these are sold they will be retired and never be made available again.” –Drew

FEATURED PRODUCT: Work on multiple projects at a time, and need bags to go within other bags while you’re out and about? We love these Large Eden Cotton Pouches, by Della Q!

Field Trip!

We step away from the studio for a bit to tour Independence Farmstead Fibers in Brenham, Texas. Owner, Dawn Brown takes Vickie through the entire process — from sheep to skein — of making artisanal yarn.
