Chic-a Triad Sets

We’ve all been remarking on how awesome this new bag set from Chic-a is!

I love a good patternholder, so this caught my eye right away.  Since it folds in thirds, it supports itself – no hauling around a stand holder along with the knitting.  Plus, the elastic band that  acts as a placeholder on charts is much easier to move than a magnet or a post-it note.

The whole set folds up into a pretty little compact bag – with the pattern holder on the outside and the notions bag and small project (think socks) inside the bag with handles.

Voila! Ready to walk out the door and easy to pull out of your bag once you arrive at your destination!

Double Zipper Chic-a Bags

I know, I’ve already waxed lyrical about the wonders of all the styles of Chic-a bags we ordered, but over the past week I’ve really come to love the Double Zipper Bags.The two sides make it so much easier to keep things from getting tangled or pulled or messed up.

Pattern and notions bag on one side, project on the needles on the other side. WAY fewer tangles.

The portfolio size (14″) also fits perfectly into my laptop messenger bag, so when traveling or coming in to work, I can just slide the bag in.  Because it’s water-resistant, I don’t have to worry about any accidental leaks from my water bottle either.

Chic-a Bags

Just in at the Ewe are these fantastic bags by Chic-a.

In fun, bright prints, the pouches are easily wiped down and protect what is inside from all the unpredictable elements of life, making them ideal for knitting or crochet projects.

Not only are the zippered pouches great for knitting notions, but any time you need a bag to hold a number of things – a coupon pouch, pencil bag, camera disks (*ahem*).

The pouches come in three sizes, 7″, 9″ and 14″.  They are available in three different styles -  clear front (7″, pink, above), original (7″, butterfly print, top) and double zippered (black, 9″, bottom).

The 14″ size easily fits a pattern inside without needing to fold it.

Aside from the pouches, which could definitely fit smaller projects inside, for larger projects that need equal protection from life, the Journey Bag and the Prism Bag are both well-suited.

With a zippered closure and all-over water-resistant fabric, the Prism bag will protect its contents. The inside is lined with a light white fabric with a small pocket on one side.

The Journey Tote, while not quite as enclosing as the Prism bag, holds the same amount of yarn and (in my opinion) has a bit more pizzazz.  The top has a concealed magnetic closure which is nice for those of us who have a habit of accidentally catching yarn in zippers.

Since this bag is reversible, there is a pocket on the outside and on the inside.

One thing I particularly like about this bag is that the bottom is covered in the water-resistant fabric, making it great for vacation knitting and keeping everything safe from campgrounds, the beach, the backyard, and the kitchen floor…
