My satchel and I are still getting used to each other not all pockets and places to stash things have been worked out but I can safely say this bag is well worth the money. It has a ton of space but doesn't feel as a heavy as I expected. On my commute I can put it in my lap, fold the handles open and knit away without anything sliding or falling or otherwise escaping my personal space. This evening, on a long snowy commute, I slung it over my shoulder. While I couldn't stand, hang on and knit, it was awesome to stand, hang on and read. I thought I'd use it mostly just for commuting but now I'm pretty sure I'll use it a lot more than that. Overall - I'm so happy I have this bag and I'm kicking myself for now getting it sooner.
My bag came right on time, well packaged, and beautiful. I needed a huge bag and it is huge! I carry my normal purse things, knitting, a binder and books for school, pens, stapler, and other doo-dads for school. Plus my lunch some days. The strap is comfortable cross-ways across my body or just over one shoulder like a purse. And, did I mention it's beautiful?
I admit to coveting this purse/knitting bag after meeting Annie Modesitt at a class she had a green one and I loved the way it looked. And I needed a new purse. Only draw-back is that I can put way too much stuff in it and my back can get sore! :
It's green not leather and really well constructed! I love it!
I love this bag. I knit alot of fair isle and sweaters and larger projects and such, and it is perfect. Also room in the zippered pocket area for your wallet, celly and keys. I get alot of compliments on it, and when I tell people it is a knitting bag, they are surprised. Love it.
This bag is so soft and gorgeous! You'll think it's leather, but it's not -- it's animal-friendly! Very roomy! Carry wallet, keys, makeup bag, a book, phone, etc... PLUS your knitting and accessories! A big plus for me was the handles with an optional shoulder strap. The strap is adjustable and can be made very long. I ordered the olive bag with the olive Buddy Case. Very pleased with this purchase. Now I can carry my knitting around in style!
