Here at Knitcircus we carry a very small number of notions, tools and handmade art pieces. Once in a while we find an artist whose work is simply swoon-worthy, and I practically melted to the floor over the bags that arrived at the studio this week.

Introducing Hopkins Studio bags: handmade in Chicago by a woman-owned, woman-run company.

In a market awash with options for knitters to tote around their WIPs, these stand out. Emonie Hopkins has chosen rich, on-trend fabrics and crafted seven different bag styles. Fully lined  with contrasting fabrics, these bags close expertly with snaps and zippers.

Check out this stunning mermaid fabric with a rich floral lining:

Protect your Knitcircus sock UFO in a point protector pouch, which snaps around your double pointed needles to keep your stitches safe while in transit:

Larger bags like these feature a wrist loop and an external snap pocket in fun, contrast fabrics. Here are two of my favorite fabrics, Umbrellas and Glasses are Foxy:

And if you’re slightly obsessed with sheep like I am, you’ll dig this wee sheep pouch:

Grab these bags while they’re hot, because we expect them to go fast.

You’ll be knitting in style!
