Namaste has the best knitting bags and handbags! Now one could be yours for just a little effort and no money!
One of the things you have to do to enter is to choose which bag and color you want. The possibilities are fabulous. Holly has a Zuma bag in eggplant, and I love her bag. It's got lots of pockets (like all the Namaste bags), and the material it's made from is soft (but seems to be sturdy) and feels good.
The photo above will give you an idea of the color, which is beautiful, and below is a photo that will show you what the shape of the bag actually looks like.
The Zuma has one really large (it's bigger than it looks) interior section with lots of pockets and places to keep stuff you don't want to lose in the bottom of the bag.
As for choosing the bag I want, that's a hard decision.
I really like the Monroe, which can carry a normal size laptop in addition to your knitting and looks very clean and business-like.
This gem has three internal sections (one for your laptop, one for handbag contents, and one for knitting) as well as Namaste's numerous small pockets to keep you organized.
I like big bags, and although the Monroe is big, the Hermosa is bigger, and I like that in a knitting bag. Here it is in my personal favorite color, eggplant.
It's got one big, open compartment, and I like that a lot.
But I think the one I like best is the Laguna. They say the Hermosa is the biggest bag, but I think (from reading the dimensions) that the Laguna is, in fact, bigger. I may be mistaken, but I also like the long adjustable shoulder strap on the Laguna.
Here it is in eggplant.
And here's a view of it from the top. As you can see, it has a divider in the middle of the main compartment, which can also hold things, such as a magazine.
I should mention that I'm showing a limited number of colors out of the many that they have available. There are other styles coming out right away, too.
So, go visit the Namaste site and choose the bag of your dreams! While you're there, check out all the other organizers they have for knitters (I particularly like their buddy case). Then get on over to J. Leigh Designz and enter the contest!
