I warned you about the snot. Here is an example of why I have to keep all my knitting projects in plastic bags. I prefer the zipping gallon freezer size. Not only are they fashionable, but also very durable. Did I mention other knitters look down on me with shame? "How can she put that beautiful Jo Sharp yarn in a freezer bag?" TO KEEP IT BEAUTIFUL :)
Actually, I do have a bag stash almost equal to my yarn stash. But my lovely knitting bags just end up boogery, and loaded with my classic fall back...freezable plastic.
