Problem with tote bags is things can fall out of the top. (I speaketh from experience)

I use either those freebie messenger bags you get at seminars that have a zip top or flap that closes off, for smaller projects I use one of those cloth backpacky things that has a drawstring top.

I use the bagsmith bag. I really like it except that yes, things can fall out. But I find that mostly I lose my yarn needle. There aren't many very small pockets. However, It does have a great number of other pockets that hold my needles, scissors, pens, stitch markers, etc. etc. very well.

There are a lot of other stylish bags out there too, but I haven't found any in my LYS yet (I like to look at those things before buying). It would be nice to have a little smaller bag as well.

I use this bag I like the way its laid out although its a bit bulky so I can't carry it with me everywhere basically around the house and knitting class.. and when I go to WV great travel bag. You can prolly find it at a better price somewhere else if you don't get the joanns coupons...

http://www.joann.com/catalog.jhtml?CATID=82324

on the bottom row,the knitters tote (I tried to a direct link but joann's website is running slow today) they also have the one skein tote too.. I got this one too http://www.knowknits.com/ it comes up first but you can click knitting accessories to see them.. I got burgandy and its great it will only hold prolly one skein perfect for socks, scarf, hat and it can be worn on the wrist or on your belt loop.. makes it perfect for the mommy on the run

This is the one I *won* (not bought, of course!) on eBay recently and I love it. It's SO light and zips closed and has pockets on the inside and one on the outside, too. I can highly recommend Janine King bags.

Here 'tis.
