I don't know if this topic has been discussed before. I tried to do a search on it, but came up empty. I saw the Namaste executive bag on the Diva Knitting website and was intrigued. http://www.divaknitting.com/store/index.php?main_page=product_info&products_id=261 Has anyone used it or seen it "live"? (My LYS does not carry this bag.) TIA

I'd be interested in seeing detailed pics of the inside and knwing if it has shoulder straps.

Used it - no, I can't afford it.
Seen it - yes
Heard it raved about - yes :)

So much yarn, so little time!

I'm not sure it was exactly the same bag, but my LYS has two or three different Namaste bags. One had a 3-ring binder embedded in the base, loads of pockets, and I'm sure the straps could go over the shoulder - really quite nice.

I have this bag in Chocolate brown. The straps are long enough to fit over your shoulder, and it has plenty of pockets.

I have it in black. I love it. As a matter of fact, I love ALL the Namaste bags. Yes, I admit it; I have an addiction to yarn & knitting bags!

It looks nice. It has been raved about but it is always good to bring it again.

Trina and Rozaroni-

Can you describe the inside of the bag? I have not been able to find any good pictures online. Thanks-

I did find one site that offers a peek at the interior of the Executive.

It is from Diva Knitting.

The inside of the bag is neat. The zippered part can hold all the things you keep in your purse. The other side is for your knitting. It has outside pockets too. Namaste makes really cool bags.

Hi,
The inside of the Executive Bag is black with many pockets. It has a wallet sized zipper pocket for your wallet (obviously!) and keys and such and plenty of other pockets for needles and little things. The straps are long enough to go over your shoulder comfortably and they can be put inside the bag if you don't want them to drape on the floor when you put your purse down. My customers who have purchased it love it! I do carry it but won't have them available till around December.

The Vintage Bag interior is also black and it too has a good sized zippered pocket. The outside has the knitting needle holders going all the way around, very handy and cool looking. I have the Turquoise and Rose for sale right now.

Both are man made material and can be wiped clean with a damp clothe. Very durable bags.
Thanks!
