What go together better than knitting and coffee? I would take this bag filled with a little project to Starbucks and have a nice relaxing coffee break.

I would use the bag for a project bag for the train and use the mug to prove that the knitting commuter is a stylin commuter.

The coffee mug would go with me to every class, meeting, you name it as I am pretty sure I have caffeine cells rather than white/red blood cells flowing through my veins. (Hey, my mother was Swedish and started me on coffee when I was 4.) The beautiful coordinated bag would carry (one of) my current knitting projects to those meetings (you have to keep your sanity somehow!).

Wonderful satchel to hold my yarn when traveling. My fingers and knitting needles are crossed!

Vicki said...

I would first show it off to everyone I know. Then I would find a special project for the bag and put coffee in the mug.

Diana said...

The bag would house the current MMarioKKnits shawl I'm doing. The coffee mug would replace the coffee I.V.

This one is perfect for me! I love to sit in the corner at Starbucks and spin with my drop spindle on lunch break. So, my drop spindle and fiber would go in the bag, and an iced caramel latte would tide me over nicely, thank you!

I would put the money I would save each time I bring a reuseable cup to the coffee shop or better yet, fill it with a drink from home, in a buy more yarn fund. And who doesn't need another knit project bag?

Gosh!! Being a fairly new knitter...reading Blogs...listening to Podcasts...hoping to retire in 3 + years.....I am learning quickly to build a STASH!! So, this bag would be great to put a pattern and yarn in for a project THEN.....I could fill the drink bottle with some wonderful coffee to help me stay awake to finish all of my STASH projects!! LOL!

I would take it to work. It would be perfect for my knitting projects nd coffee

Jennifer Boyle said...

If I won the set, I would take the cup to Starbucks and fill it with green tea, so I could get a 10 cent discount. The bag I would fill with my current project. I would sit all day a Starbucks knitting.

Emma Burton said...

Drink tea from the mug and use the bag as a fancy matching project bag. I'd look like such a put together knitter :). I'd probably make one of Hannah Fettig's hat designs with the yarn.

I would use the mug for tea, and of course put my latest project in the bag of honor!

Lovely! The mug is crying out for a chai latte and I see the bag holding the Pretty as a Peacock shawl I'm knitting for my niece's wedding this summer.

Sue Smith said...

What a happy-looking cup/bag duo! The bag would be my Happy Summer Yarn Carry-all (I take my knitting to work at the community college where I work). The Mug would keep my iced latte or iced chai cool and refreshing as I sit on the Quad and knit!

The yarn-y addition looks intriguing! Depending on the skein, I'd make a shawlette or a pair of summer socks.

Well, put the yarn in the bag and take it along with the mug to my local Starbucks and knit in public to my hearts content . . . or until the coffee runs out!

phlame said...

I would take my new yarn, put it in my African Fairwinds Trading Company bag, put a drink in my matching Starbucks thermal cup, and go sit on the beach and knit my new project, as yet undecided until I see what kind of yarn I have!

Laura said...

Knit the yarn. Use the project bag. My 8 yr old would steal the mug.

The bag would be perfect for a road trip knitting project and the mug for tea!

Mary Moe said...

Bag for my current knitting project, which could be the skein of yarn that now goes with the bag and mug, and the mug, of course for coffee. Life is good!

cllcraft said...

Love the mug and bag - such great wonderous colors! I would pack the yarn, needles, and a project sheet, fill the mug with iced tea, and sit under a wide tree and watch the kids play at the park. Bliss.

Sadija said...

I would be very pleased to own the African Fairwinds Trading beautiful design, and would think of these wonderful women as I sipped coffee from the Starbucks mug. Of course the yarn would be beautiful to knit with.

Emily said...

Where wouldn't I take that bag and coffee mug!? I like to have coffee and my knitting projects with me at ALL times!

Siren said...

Hi
I just received yarn from your shop and I'm so happy with it (Madelinetosh which you can't get here in Norway).

I would use the bag for my lunchbox and the mug for tea on my way to work. All this while I listen to podcast on knitting such as Alana Dakos or any of the other fun podcasts which are out there
