These aren’t for my or Dan’s lunches. I bought them for my yarn collection.
In her Spin It book, Lee Raven gives a tip on how to store yarn. She recommends “storing wool … in paper bags that are taped shut [since moth's] larvae don’t eat the cellulose of paper bags.”
I thought that was an excellent suggestion. Since today was only moderately hot and not ‘I’m Melting! I’m Melting!’ hot, I tooled on my bike up to the local grocery store. I purchased 100 bags for about a buck fifty. (Gosh, I wish all organizational tools were equally cheap and available.)
I have 98 bags left. I think I’ll be set for the next 10 years.
My only complaint about the brown lunch bags is that they don’t have a little window in which I can peak inside and see the yarn. Fooey.
Speaking of bags, I don’t think I ever showed you my new bag.
It’s handmade from The Julian Bag Lady specifically for knitters. It has several narrow pockets in which I can jam my straight needles or other tools into. The inner compartment has a zipper closure, allowing me to lug it around as my everyday purse and be able to secure my wallet and other essentials inside. I just LOVE it.
