Yea though you schlep to work, let not your items hang out loose.
Though you carry for both work and knitting,let not your items conjoin.
It's official, this bag is a keeper! I have gotten many compliments on it - Knitters None of Them (not yet anyway). It is well balanced, soft, and doesn't irritate my shoulder. I have been carrying it faithfully for a week. Full, Stuffed, nearly empty, purely for the effort of remembering to carry a purse. (Except in the grocery store, I only need money/list in the grocery store, and groceries are notorious for thieves.)
In the photos above it is packed for work. Items include an 84 oz cup, 2 24 oz Nalgene bottles, lunch,box of crackers, small knitting project, papers, lab coat stuff, phone, keys, etc. It was still easy to get to my knitting on the shuttle bus, and the bag hangs so nicely that the cup doesn't spill.
Would asking TAO for a Saddle coloured one for Mother's Day be Gluttony?
