Anyone have one of the Namaste knitting bags, and if so, do you like it? I was looking at the Executive or the Messenger Bag. I’m just disappointed in the way that my Jordanna Paige knitters bag is holding up. So, now I am off to find a new, great knitting bag.
okay those look cool and if that messenger bag wasn’t courderoy (yeah i can’t spell that) i would be digging on that right now! i may become obsessed with the executive bag though!
I am curious though about the trouble you have had with the Jordanna bag. which one do you have and what’s going wrong with it? mine spends a lot of time getting knocked around my car and various jobs and still seems to be okay (pink tweed messenger bag) beyond getting a bit dirty in the process. anything i should be looking out for?
I actually have the knitter’s purse. The one that has been discontinued. The first one I had, the straps cracked after like a week. I sent it back and got a replacement, and they are cracked again. I take it almost everywhere, and if anything gets on it, it leaves a stain, including water. I have tried to clean it off and it just makes it worse. Otherwise, the inside is great. I love the room and the style, just made out of materials that are not up to par IMHO.
I like the messenger bag, even if it is a coudoroy-type material, but I also like the messenger bag from JP. The executive bag you are eyeing up looks great too!!
I have the Namaste Everyday Handbag in Chocolate. I really like it. My only reservations are that the vinyl lining is a little too stiff, I would prefer fabric. And the center pocket has a zipper, which makes me nervous and I watch it to make sure it doesn’t snag my yarn. But there is tons of room, lots of pockets, and it’s very pretty. It has a long shoulder strap that is an attractive attachment.
I like the looks of the Namaste messenger bag. And now I wish I had bought the everyday in that green color…
AND I noticed that the new Jordana Paige bag (advertised in the new Vogue Knitting) looks a GREAT DEAL like the Namaste Everyday. I would buy the Namaste for half the price (I’m guessing) of the JP before everyone else figures this out.
I have a 2 great knitting bags from www.greenmountainknittingbags.com.
They are so beautiful. I have the large carpet and the pockets in the inside are so great and easy to use. I really my knitting bags from Martha. I also have a Vintage syle demi that I love for my small projects. I have my first pair of sock in it right now.!! Here is a pic.
Wow. That’s gorgeous. Here, I’m happy with my el-cheapo tapestry bag I got at Garden Ridge for $3. But now I’m beginning to want all these other bags. Darn you girls!!
glass needles and knitting bags!
I am drooling for a pair of glass needles. I don’t know what size I’d get them in, but I really really want a pair.
I know the Namaste website – I’ve been drooling over their needles for a long time! I was just wondering where you all order yours, as they don’t have direct purchase on the website.
ah sorry…thought you were looking to see the bags…haven’t ordered one myself.
I’ve been through their retailers page, and I think I’ve clicked on every link there, but I can’t find anyone who sells the bags online. I’d really like that messenger bag, and I don’t have a LYS.
did you check the online drop down? this one is going to be selling it but apparently not until sometime next month? maybe it isn’t actually available yet?
I didn’t even see the drop down menu until you mentioned it! :lol: Okay, so I guess I’ll have to wait, then. Thanks!
I got my Namaste Everyday here:
ohh you can never have to many knitting bags lol although I have to say I don’t understand why most knitting bags do not show inside pictures… thats what I wanna see :lol:
