View Full Version : Knitting Tool Pouch #3 Question

08-21-2018, 05:52 AM
My New Yearís resolution was to try to make a smaller footprint on the environment by not using disposable utensils/straws whenever possible. Itís less of a resolution and more of a lifestyle change which is probably why this personal goal is still going 10 months later (I started early). Also it seems I picked a good year because a lot of cities on the West Coast of the US are discussing straw bans and plastic utensil bans now.

My EDC is a Pop Tote and I used to throw a ziplock in there with my utensils. Then I found this cute wrap. As a non-knitter it never occured to me to check to Knitting Tool Pouch #3.

Friend with #3 pouches will the pouch hold a couple straws this length? My setup is cute but definitely adds a bit of heft to my bag and isnít flat which Iíd prefer. Not to mention it uses industrial velco which is loud. Iíd really prefer a flat pouch with a zipper. If the length was 10Ē Iíd buy two right now. Iím hoping 9.5 will still work even though thatís the external dimension.

I use mine for knitting tools, but here it is with an assortment of utensils:

Note that the chopsticks with the paper ends folded do not fit. Even with nothing else in the pouch. The curved edges of the pouch limit inserting longer items. The standard items I use it for range from 6-8Ē. I suspect I could get an 8.5Ē item in there; right now I cannot lay my hands on anything with that length.

ETA: I neglected to mention that the chopsticks are exactly 9Ē.

Thank you so much, thatís exactly what I was asking. I can cut down the straws a bit. The chopsticks in my pouch (from Muji) are 8Ē so itíll work.

The portability of the pouch (with o-ring!) is worth it. I wish Iíd seen this a year ago!

(And Darcy if youíre looking for product shggestions a 10Ē knitting pouch would be awesome.)

What about their pencil pouch- would that work for you? It's a smidge shorter than the knitting pouch.
