Sock bag

I've been sewing project bags this week - pictures to follow soon. Yesterday, while surfing, I came across a pattern on Craftsy for a sock sack for people who knit two socks at once. That's not me, so this one will find a new home soon.
But, the idea is just brilliant IMHO, you sew a bag with a divider inside and two little tabs just above the divider, thread your yarns(s) through those and - voilà - you can knit two socks at the same time without getting your yarn tangled up.
From the outside, the bag looks cute, but not that special.
Fold down the cuff and it gets more interesting. That's also what you're supposed to do to stabilize the whole thing when you're knitting.
Here's a closer look at the divider and the two tabs. Brilliant, right?
