I can see it being appropriate for a guy. My only reservations for it, and it may not hold true for you is that A) It's bulky, I prefer a lighter bag, but that's me. B) I worry about not being able to get balls of yarn (rather than skeins) in those outer pockets. But I still love the bag! FYI, it has eyelet holes to the inside of the bag so that you can thread your yarn through there and when you're done, but your project inside without any yarn hanging out.

Those pockets are cool, I need to find a good reason to buy that bag, even if it's not my primary knitting bag. I'm CRAZY for pockets, on ANYTHING!

As promised, here are pictures of my Namaste Everyday bag.

For reference, the black blob inside on the right is my KP Options.

Inside, on the left there are 3 elastic pockets, on the right are 3 straight (non-elastic) pockets. And there's a flimsy divider in the middle that zips up that you can keep random things in.

Oh yeah. There are 2 sock books and some 8 1/2" x 11" sheets of paper in the outside pocket.

I toss my keys, wallet, glasses, (sometimes a hefty paperback) in the pocket that has a clasp.

Hey Mason--check out that orange tote before you buy it...I hated it! It just seemed bulky and it had TOO many pockets. I don't want to feel like I HAVE to organize everything...and the pockets that were there weren't the sizes I wanted them to be. Don't get me wrong...I've heard several people who say they have it and like it. What about a plan 'ol canvas tote or something? My mom uses a plastic shopping bag like you'd get from a department store (not a grocery sack)--that isn't very "girly". Maybe you could knit yourself something cool!! It'd be a good way to learn fair isle or something so you could knit a truck on the bag or something! LOL! Seriously--just check out the bag before you buy--make sure you like it!

I use "tote" by Vera Bradley b/c it's big enough to hold a project and all of my essentials but I do like the looks of some of these bags you guys are posting...especially the namaste bag!!! You guys may have shown me my birthday present...

Although I like the Namaste, I have to carry a lot of stuff in my backback for school, so to carry my projects around I just use small tote bags.

Bought 5 of 'em during a sale at Hobby Lobby. They're all black and will fit about two skeins and a set of needles. They're very very handy.

You could go to the local craft store and see what kind of canvas bags they have. Some have extra pockets on the sides and zippered tops.

Here's that Hobby Lobby bag, great pockets inside and a couple of elastic holders at top (where you see my needle sticking out) to hold some needles at an angle handy. Note my Feb. KA sticking out of the front pocket.

I searched for the perfect bag and found it at my LYS .. it's by Dritz and is called St. Jane .. it's great but EXTREMELY large.

Nice. Reminds me a little of this pattern for one which I saw last night at http://www.berroco.com/263/263_dana_pv.html. It's a cute bag, I might need to make it :D
