here's my knitting bag
My requirements were to hold 16 inch long needles and not look too calico-kitschy.
I knit on the train going to work so I wanted something to look a little more professional, at least on the outside. I used grey and black since that seems to be 90% of my wardrobe! There is also one of those plastic backpack clippy things on the strap.
It's worn messenger style, across the body.

fabric is a charcoal-grey heavy denim and straps are nylon webbing
I used bright flowered lining because the outside is so plain, and it's hard to find things in bags with dark lining. I like the contrast between urban neutrals on the outside and tropical brights on the inside.
