Knit Happens and Then There's a Bag for That

I've been getting the itch to stitch recently, so I tried to think of what interesting project I could do that wouldn't take too much time. As I was walking to my yoga class one night, it hit me that I could try and knit my very own yoga bag!

When conceiving the idea of how to do it, I remembered my medium size round knitting loom. I usually use it to create hats, but when I thought about my yoga bag, I realized it is just like a really, really long hat! So I picked out my yarn, and set to work!

I chose a gray and white chunky yarn that was soft to the touch...

Once I started, it took me about a week to create my yoga bag on the knitting loom.
After finishing the bag, I purchased a gray strap from a local variety store along with a gray drawstring cord. 
I attached the gray strap to the top and bottom of the yoga bag with needle and thread and ran the drawstring cord through the rim of the opening of the bag.

Now, I'm stylin' for class with my new fall  fresh yoga bag!
