After thinking about how I wanted a new bag that I could use both for everyday life and to cart knitting around it, I thought I'd do a little internet research on what different people had to say about all the different bags. For the most part, reviews for both bags were quite positive, though some people mentioned that the Jordana Paige bags tend not to have very sturdy handles. Everyone who's used the Lady B seems to love it, calls it their all time fave, but the price tag really, really scares me.
And so, through more of my poking around, I found the Namaste Messenger bag. While the ~$70 price tag is pretty hefty, it's still half what the Lady B goes for. Plus it seems to be set up in a way closer to what I want as opposed to Lady B's large middle with a bunch of small pockets (or so I understand from what people write). The Namaste bag is actually partitioned into a regular section with a zipper for you to keep all your normal stuff, and then two non-zipper sections to store knitting. It's expandable, which is great of a pack-rat like me, and has pockets in the front, under the flap ( which incidentally also seems to have a pocket on it) for little things that every girl is bound to have in her purse.
The bag got a good review on Knitty, which is encouraging.
But do I really NEED another bag? Dilemma, dilemma...
