Knitty Gritty Project Bags
Knitty Gritty Project Bags are thoughtfully handcrafted in the USA by Magner. Made with the adventurous knitter (or weaver) in mind, they will last a lifetime. The sturdy waxed canvas has a unique feel and look that will age and patina similar to leather. The wax provides a bit of weather resistance as well.
