Win an alligator bag kit!
I think that a lot of my own design work tends towards the classic, the wearable, the…well, frankly, you could even say “boring with a twist.” (Sometimes that’s very literal…I do love a cable). I like things to not only be relatively straightforward to knit, but also something you’ll actually get a good amount of use from in the long run. I know I don’t have nearly as much knitting time as I might like, and I suspect I’m not the only one…so there you have it.
That said, I have a real weakness for “fun” bags. (See: Red Lotus, for example, or the Boombox Bag from the Knitgrrl books that actually had knitters building speakers into their bag).
Morehouse Farm has been publishing some really cool bag kits of late, and they’re allowing me to give one away here on the blog.
I chose the Alligator, because it is a) hilarious b) adorable and c) because I almost lost my best friend and officemate Arabella to the swamps of New Orleans earlier in the year (she’s staying in Cleveland for at least one more year — whew!).
To win one of the kits, all you need to do is leave a comment on this post. We’ll pick one by random number generator 25 July.
Edited to add: Congratulations, Jennifer! I’ll be mailing you for your address now!
The bag is just darling. How imaginative.
That is just too adorable! Love it.
This bag is hilarious – no doubt!
what a cute, silly bag! I know some people who would love that as a Christmas gift hehe
What a cute fun purse. Talk about a crowd stopper.
I have made the alligator scarf and the dragon scarf. These are really fun to knit. I would love to make the bag.
I totally love that bag. I’ve looked at it for a while. I really like the alligator scarf too. So cute and kitchy. Thanks for the giveaway.
How cute! I would love to win. thanks!
That bag is so cute! Pick me, please.
That’s so awesome!
I love Morehouse Merino kits–my first sweater was made with one!–but I’ve not attempted one of the creature kits yet. Thanks for hosting the giveaway; the bag is very cute…
Want! That’s such a cute bag!
That bag is charming – and at first glance, some people might miss that it’s an alligator! The rest of their bags are great too… hmm… I see a bag kit in my future!
I host a lovely cat at home, but I’ve always dreamed of having my alligator, my own gator !

While I am not a bag person in general, this one is SO CUTE!!! It is very playful and fun without being silly.
What a cute bag!
LOVE that bag, animal friendly alligator purse.
Too cute! I’ve made a couple alligator scarves – they were adorable! This would be a fun knit. Thanks for the chance to win.
Oh. Em. Gee. That’s adorable!
I’d love this – obviously! Can think of at least two people who it could go to as a gift after I’ve had the fun of knitting it!!
ce sac est fait pour moi , il a du mordant et de l’humour
That is so stinkin’ cute! If I won, I’m not sure if I keep it myself or give it to my mother. They just bought a house in Florida and the pond behind the house has a couple of alligators 🙂
I’m not sure if that’s an awww or a…well, let’s stick with awww.
I think I would have to keep this one for me because my daughters would fight over which one should get it–too cute!
This bag is great: I want to knit one! I look at the Morehouse website and, even if the Alligator bag is the cutest I think, there are many other cool options: I really like the Baby Owl backpack and the Salamander tote. Thanks for letting me discover this website!
This is such a cute bag! I would love to win this kit. And I have a feeling that I would have to hide it from my 4 year old niece (who already has an addiction to bags/purses).
What a cool bag this would be to carry around in New Orleans!
I/would love to win this kit. The bag is darling!
I love it, subtle, quirky and a great conversation starter! The big question is, “can I make one for the Ravellenic games, or will it have to wait for the U.S. Open?
I can so see myself walking into work with one of these and seeing the looks on the straight laced co-workers!
OMG. Freakin’ cute. Please randomly generate me!!!
Adorable! It really strikes my sense of whimsy and I would love to win a kit!!!
I love the alligator bag!

Thanks for picking it for the prize, and thanks for the link to the other great stuff available from Morehouse Farm.

I am always on the lookout for cute knitting bags! I love this one.
It reminds me of my favorite toy as a kid. Ally, she was a giant pool float but still a bunch of fun.
Love it! Hope I get picked, but congratulations to the person who does.
My husband adores Steve Irwin the crocodile guy. Oh my gosh—he would would go nuts if he saw me with this purse. I know its an alligator but…close enough to make my hubby smile. So worth that smile!

How cute! I have a daughter who loves gators and she would love it!!!
Cute bag. Thanks for the giveaway.
I’m always admiring their kits and bought one for my niece’s birthday (sushi scarf since she made us sushi last time we were there). Thanks for the opportunity to win!

the bags are all so sweet. i love the alligator purse as well but the elephant bag is sweet to . thank you for the chance to win
I lived in Florida with alligators in my backyard. It’s a miracle our dog survived! Perhaps this bag would be a lovely remembrance of that chapter in my life!
Oh my goodness -that is beyond cute! And I didn’t think alligators could get anywhere near cute at all.
Oooo! So fun!
Oh, I absolutely LOVE it and would love to win a kit!
This bag is adorable and so fun. My wardrobe is rather basic. This would add some much needed whimsy!
love this bag. I live in Gainesville, FL, home of the “Gators” so it would be a great bag to have!
Please pick me! The bag is a real hoot!
This bag is awesome! Thanks for the chance to win!
This would be a wonderful gift for an animal lover!
I would be SOOOO the envy of my knitting groups! I just have to be sure that one of the girls (ages 6 to 12) don’t “borrow” it – or adopt the bag as their next pet.
Who doesn’t need another bag?
great bag 🙂
Never knitted a bag before but I love Morehouse yarn so I’m in for the pick!
This bag is so cool! It reminds of Louisiana, of course, a very special and beautiful state. And, the bag is just plain fun…I definitely need this in my life! I hope I win!!!

Oh, now that’s a good looking bag!
Thx for the contest!
(goodstuff on Rav)
THAT BAG IS FIERCE. and makes me think of that darling little nursery-story:
“mumps!” said the doctor
“measels!” said the nurse
“NOTHING!” said the lady with the alligator purse
That is one of the cutest knitted things I have ever seen.
Ticktock, ticktock, ticktock!
I absolutely love this bag
what a great bag, it makes you smile when you look at it !!!
