Knitting bags: what do you use?
I am looking for one (to buy, not make!). Something that I can easily knit out of and pick up and go. I think this will help me knit on the go... right now it is just a pain!

Thanks

this is the bag i use. http://tinyurl.com/88pkj

all the proceeds benefit Breast Cancer Research. It is big enough that i can carry two skeins of yarn for my baby afghan that i am knitting (to be fair the afghan is about as big as a book mark at this point but there is LOTS of room) It has a center pocket that can be zipped that i carry my wallet and stuff in, and another pocket for more stuff. i don't think it is outrageously huge but others look at me like i am crazy. i think it works great and i do knit right out of the bag. when i am ready to leave i plop the knitting back in and i am good to go!!

I have tons of totes and other bags, but I recently bought a BagSmith Project Bag and I LOVE it for knitting. Best bag ever.

I'm cheap, so I just bought a tote from Old Navy. It's similar to www.oldnavy.com/asp/Product.asp?wdid=200501&wpid=316050] this one[/url]. It's big enough to carry around a decent-sized project (I hauled around a huge shawl that I wore my last trimester, so you know it was BIG.)

Hmmm, well don't you need all the little pockets that knitting bags have? That is why I was looking at a bag made for knitters. If not... there is a Kate Spade basket bag I have been eyeing that would be perfect

This is what I use when I take my project with me. I got it at Target. It has a large pocket on the other side (on the outside). Also a lil mesh pocket inside. They have different ones with different sayings on them. This one fit me to a T! LOL!

KNITBIT :XX:
