Meet Agent Smith. Agent BagSmith, That Is.

So, Sunday was a very productive day for me. I woke up early, tidied up a bit, read my paper and drank coffee. I caught up on the knitty boards and then went to Lowe's for a few necessities to hang some shelves. Then, well, then I went to The Peace of Yarn. I went there with the intention of buying this bag but then had second thoughts. I had heard several knitters comment that the lantern moon bags didn't really lend themselves to portability. Mostly because of their delicate nature. The clerk at the shop even mentioned that. I had also always had my eye on a bagsmith bag for a while. You see them in the magazines and you can just picture it sitting on the floor beside you on the couch as you merrily knit along. I'd never actually seen one in a shop yet though. Until Sunday.
Meet Agent Smith. Agent Bagsmith. He holds lots of stuff (including my new orange chibi that I finally found!) I love all his pockets and nooks. He can fit nearly everything in there that I need on my current projects. Well, he could fit it all, but I refuse to put my Adamas Shawl and stuff in there, it's gotta stay separate and at home. If I try it in public, I'll screw the pooch. I just know it. But for some reason, I put the dental floss in him. Hmm...need to move that to the Adamas bag. I look forward to grabbing him and taking him to my Stich 'n Bitch and my Knitting Meetup groups. Isn't he the most useful bag you have ever seen? I love me some bagsmith. As I was preparing for Flash Your Stash (how are you all planning on doing this? Lots of pr0n up close, some storage shots, what? All of it?) Ripple couldn't stay out of trouble. And I couldn't resist grabbing the camera before I rescued him. The little stinker. He just has to jump up on the shelf over my computer, then see where he can go from there. I'm still waiting for him to make it on top of the shelves housing my book stash (and part of my yarn stash, and my needles, *sigh*) And now, after Sunday's shelf installing extravaganza, I have a veritable walkway around the walls of the office for him. You'll see. Oh, and back to FYS. I have photos of my closet and shelves where I keep most of it. I have some close ups of the stash too. But, uh, how does this work? Do you have to label every photo with what it is? How many pr0n shots? Do you have to have one with the whole mountain that is your stash? I guess that'd be nice, if not a pain. This is my first time flashing, so I'd like to hear what you all have seen or done.

That is a nice bag. I think the nice thing about Flash Your Stash will be the variety. All the different knitters flashing in their own special way :-) I realize I am kinda cheezy!

Bezzie said...

Email me and I'll give you a sneak peek of mine, if you can promise to keep it hush hush. It's a top secret mission. Agent Bagsmith will get it. ;-)

What a fantastic bag! I need something like that. Looks like it is ideal for all your stuff.

Ripple is certainly an action cat.

Love the bag! I was thinking about getting a Bagsmith bag last year, but then I got my Lantern Moon bag which is big and roomy and wonderful and, yes, portable.

Sophie likes investigating, too. Mostly she likes being higher than everything else.

Verry nice organized bag there!! I am sure it'll be nice to have stuff in one place too!

Your cat must be loving your new shelves...and you know, just how did Ripple get up there???

The bag looks great - I've seen them in catalogs before & wondered how they would work - looks tempting. :)

I love the picture of the cat on the closet door... did he like it there once he was there?

He was nervous to say the least. I was holding on to the door as I was taking that pic. It was shaking and he was really not that stable. I think he was eyeing the shelf across the room and trying to figure out if he could make it there in a flying leap. He was quite happy to be rescued though.

I'm not sure about the stash flash. I'm not sure I'll be doing it, as most of my stash is in individual tote bags that aren't see-through. It'd be a big production to haul everything out.

Love the new bag!

Ripple and my Geronimo have something in common--if you think you can jump up somewhere, you *must* give it a try.
