Ohhh boy...what a subject!

I have recently purchased several (4) bags from www.greenmountainknittingbags.com (Martha Saaco). I have a Med-lrg Carpet Bag (my favorite of the 4), a med-size SnowPond bag (my 2nd favorite) , A Fat Tall Baguette, and an Oversized Carpet Bag. I like Martha's bags because of the way they perform. You can 'cuff' them by letting the two sides lay down...and you then have easy access to the contents. Ya just have to see them to understand! Martha posts new bags every Thursday afternoon at about 5 pm ET. She also takes custom orders...but custom orders are more expensive for the same style bag.

I also purchased a Morgan bag from www.catruncreations.com and it is my 3rd favorite. It's construction is more defined than Martha's bags at greenmountainknittingbags...but, I still love it. She has a lot of pockets inside! She is taking custom orders straight from her website.

Both ladies are excellent seamstresses and businesswomen. They take care of business!

The reason that the med size bags are my favorites...you don't have to have a lot of yarn to fill them up....and most of my projects need to hold just 7-8 skeins of yarn. The taller, larger bags can hold 3 projects at a time easily!

Well, I decided to share my other two greenmountainknittingbags with you as well. I like to see things people are talkin' about...and maybe others might, too!

Below are the two oversized bags that I spoke of in my first post.

All in all, I love these new bags because: in addition to being functional, they are beautiful, too! I am at that time in my life, with all 5 kids grown, married and out of the house...that I can get a few great things for me!

They ARE beautiful. I have some old handles that I've been wanting to make a bag out of. I wonder if I can get a pattern for that?!?

I have a namaste messenger bag that I like a lot. I wish it had a firmer bottom--it kind of slouches.

I have a larger size Vera Bradley-type bag that I use. It's nice and roomy and has about 6 little pockets inside that are perfect for needles, little scissors, etc. Plus it's pretty!
