I think you’re all well aware of my weakness for bags at this point, right? And you might remember that a few months ago, I got rid of two tote bags that just didn’t work out for me. Of course, that meant I’ve had my eye out for a new bag, since I really am tired of the piece of REI carry on luggage I’ve been lugging around. A few weeks ago, I picked up a Case Logic canvas messenger bag and I love it! It has a laptop sleeve that works well for carrying books and work stuff, too. I also picked up a new hardshell camera case for my Olympus 1010 to protect it while it’s in my messenger bag. (You can almost see the camera case under May’s tummy below.)

“As if! You’re not the boss of me, big kitty!” -Mayhem
Fortunately, before that could devolve any further, I pulled out my newest sock project bag, which completely distracted Chaos.
“Hmm, what is that little dangly thing?” -Chaos
“This dangly thing rocks!” -Chaos
“I love you, dangly thing!” -Chaos
*nom nom nom* -Chaos

mmmm, dangly things on pretty purple sock bags!! Your other bag is very pretty too!
Good distraction. I’m rather crazy for the Case Logic bag myself!
Oh, you’re like me. I’m *such* a sucker for bags… I just love the way they get excited about the smallest little (dangly) things!
Were any dangly things hurt in the process of shooting this post? ;o)
ah, for the love of a good dangly thing!
i’m another one who needs a bag for every project, and a few spares for carrying stuff around in, and a few more for doing the shopping, and then a couple extra ‘just in case’ and … um, you know… lol
Better not let my projects see your blog! They reside in supermarket bags. No purty hand sewn bags or giant hand knitted thongs 😉
purple is my favorite flavor too Chaos, I get you
Oh yea, I love bags. So glad you found a bag that works for you!
I love that messenger bag! Apparently, so do the kitties 🙂
Oh Chaos, despite your gruff exterior, you really are just a big fluffy kitten. Awww.
Ahh, now I know what to get when my Timbuk2 bags give out.
Ooooo – yummy yummy sock bags! I like your taste Chaos!
Chris- Dangly things, to my knowledge, offer no nutritional value whatesoever.
Have you seen the new Roots Emily Saddle leather handbag-? I think I need to tell Santa about it.
There’s nothing like a good dangly thing!
I love new bags, too! Lately I’ve been using the one that came with Lynn Viehl’s goodie bag. Lots of fun – both the having a new bag to use, and the getting it as a gift! Though that messenger bag looks awesome, I may have to stay on the lookout for one… My current computer bag is awesome but gets very heavy (because I fill it too full…).
Aw, Chaos, you’re losing your tough-cat reputation. 😉
very cute. I’m totally obsessed with bags too.. the more pockets the better.
I shall call it dangly thing and it shall be mine and it shall be my dangly thing.
if only Chaos were blue…
Pretty bag! Oh those naughty kitties, playing with the pretty bag!
I’m very intrigued by your new messenger bag. I have a huge backpack which just isn’t working for me. This looks like a great bag.
Wonderful purples in the project bag. I hope Chaos left the dangle attached!
I have yet to purchase a single sock bag; I think it’s time!
I love bags too. And bowls. I went antique shopping this morning and I bought five – no, six bowls. LOL.
i love bags too, but rarely get rid of any. chaos looks adorable… like a kitty in that photo essay!
Chaos loves are few but forever. You, SRM and dangly things. SRM? Cute purse!
I have got to sew more sockie bags for myself!
The case logic bag is really cool!
Cute bags! I love having a project bag for each thing I’m knitting or planning to knit next. It makes it easy to grab it and go!
Nice bags 🙂
Sorry to be late to this – HQ is letting me use a 17 inch laptop – aargh, and the ‘matching’ bag is this huge backpack – So, I went shopping and got a really sleek Belkin bag – doesn’t hold lots, but the laptop, charges, and a mouse fit nicely, along with a clipboard, papers, and my PDA. No room for knitting, tho…. But I have plenty of other bags for that. 🙂
Pictures of your two new bags warms a fellow bag lovers heart.
Awww, kitty in love! Always a good thing to see!
it’s easy to have a bag fetish when you knit! Love the purple sock bag. Very nice.
