I'm looking for pics now. If anyone wants me to pick one up for them I will at cost + shipping. Colors are pink, red, black, gray, and yellow. I absolutely love mine.

Okay... this is the same bag, but with patches added. This is the gray one. All colors have black trim I think, except black which has gray trim. The top flap has a couple pockets, which I will probably use for keys, cell and $. When you lift the flap which is held down by velcro there are pockets and slots galore.

I will take some decent pics when I get home.

Looks great! I really need something like that so I can carry lots of knitting and have a separate LARGE pocket for things like wallet, keys, etc.

I don't think I have any A.C. Moores around me though. Wish I could find it on their web site! What's it called?

Thanks! That's sooooooooo sweet of you! Please post those pics later. I might ask you to get me a black one. I like the patches.....gives one ideas eh?!? If you can give approximate measurements, that would be a great help too!

I checked A.C. Moore store locator and unfortunately they don't even have stores in my State! Shipping shouldn't be TOO much, it looks like sturdy but heavy-weight material.

I just use whatever I have around that my project fits into. I have a few bags left from when we purchased sheets that came in drawstring bags- they're great for organizing projects within my knitting bag

I knit just about everywhere I go. When I'm out in public I stash my current project in a ziploc bag and toss it into my already overflowing purse. Works great!
On the other hand, there is a knitting bag at Michael's I've been eyeing for awhile. It looks like a messenger bag and comes in some really yummy colors. I don't know what brand it is though.

Well here is my knitting bag. I got a pink one, a black one and a yellow one. I am using the yellow one for pics as it offered the best contrast for the camera.

It is 16" across the front, 12" from top to bottom, and 4" thick at the side. As you can see it is quite large enough to accomodate the average sized kitty cat. The flap on the lid has 1 large zippered pouch that runs the width of the flap and is 9" deep. There is also a large velcro pouch on the right side of the flap that is about the size to accolodate a 16 oz soda bottle. There is one more zippered pouch that is about half the size of the flap and one pocket that is not secured by any means.

When the flap is open, the front of the bag has several pouches/pockets in 3 columns. Running across the top of all 3 columns is a zippered pouch. The left column has 4 credit card sized pockets and one deeper pocket. The middle column has 3 vertical slots meant for pens (crochet hooks) There is also a wider slot for a ruler or needle gauge. Under that is an unsecured pocket where I keep my Altoids tin of stitch markers and beneath that a zippered pocket that is coin purse sized. The 3rd Column has 2 unsecured pockets.

The fabric is canvas as far as I can tell. The strap seems pretty secure and is adjustable.

I doubt it will be the most durable bag ever, hence the reason it is priced at $5 (and I bought 3). But considering I will be stuffing it with yarn instead of books I think it will wear quite well.
