Favourite knitting bags??
IHO BoyforPele's recent acquisition, what are some of your favourite knitting bags/purses/totes/etc.? The kind of thing that looks stylish enough to carry around on a daily basis?? I've taken a peek a Pele's Timbu2 site, as well as Jordana Paige. Any other faves before I make the big decision???

I have the pink houndstooth Jordana Paige bag. I love it...it carries everything and the kitchen sink...though my afghan is going to be pretty close to too big soon i think! :rollseyes:

Ummm.....buuuut i think because i do try to carry everything i own in it, it is starting to pull apart a little bit at one of the seams. i would be sadder about it if i weren't finding it a good reason to get a new bag! heh

That bag looks so great!! I think I'm looking for something big enough for knitting, but not quite big enough for the kitchen sink!!

I've found the Namaste Messenger bag (it's halfway down the page). Anyone have this bag? Good reviews? Bad reviews??

Brendajos, I am just like you - I'll get something that I love, but at the first sign of wear, I think "alright, out with the old and in with the new!!"

I think it would be funny to knit a bag for knitting. I saw a felted one in a book (of course I just took book back to library and can't remember which one it was in) that is meant to be a baby bag (very big) but would be great for knitting.

I intend to do just that. Though I haven't found the bag pattern yet.

Have you guys seen a picture of KK's Ultimate Knitter's Bag? It's like the booga bag times a hundred witha pocket; it's G I G A N T I C It literally has it's own seat in the car.

Yeah, I did see KK's bag and I think it looks amazing, but I think I'm after a disguiseable (is that a word??) bag, that can pass for a purse/handbag type thing. Boy, I'm picky, eh? Not too big, not too small, must pass for purse if seen on the street.

Thanks for the suggestions, everyone!! I'm waiting for wildforyarn's review of the Namaste messenger bag (fingers crossed!!).

Well, I will have my Namaste Messenger Bag (chocolate) in hand by the end of next week I was told. So, I will send out a review when I have it in hand and have used it for a few days.

I currently own the JP Knitter's Satchel in purple and like it, but it is just one big mess right now and does not have a very good divider, so I am not sure how I feel about it right now.

I also currently have (and am selling on Ebay) the JP Knitter's Purse. I really like this purse, but am finding so many new ones, that I just can't keep them all. I used it every day for everything. It was great. Not sure why it was discontinued. It has a great divider to put books, patterns, etc., on one side and project on another.

Otherwise, I have used various tote bags, etc., but nothing worth writing about.
