One can never have enough bags. Bags are fun, practical, and a nice way to experiment with new techniques.

Stuff a Spiral: a Reversible Drawstring Bag is stuffed with interesting techniques: knitted all in one piece; completely seamless; fully reversible; with double knitting to create a balanced fabric which looks perfect on both sides; and a fully enclosed drawstring case which works with both sides of the bag.

Note that Stuff a Spiral is big enough to carry a complete game of Sheepy Draughts… and a Wolf Too!
