In 2005, Knitty and Tom Bihn collaborated to design what we think is the ultimate knitting bag. So when we reached our milestone 10th Anniversary, it seemed fitting to celebrate it with a special-edition Swift!
The Knitty 10th Anniversary Swift has the same ultra-functional features you know and love, but in a brand-new color combination, just for us! The outer color is brand new: it's ballistic nylon in a deep raspberry purple called Aubergine. The reverse side features sleek Steel grey ballistic. Inside, the pockets are lined with Kiwi, and the included clear-bottomed Stuff Sack matches the lining.
And to top it all off, our special 10th Anniversary Logo is carefully embroidered onto each bag on the Aubergine side. We love how these colors look together, and have been carrying our prototypes around to envious glances from knitters everywhere. To read more about the Swift and see more pictures of its many features, visit TomBihn.com
This special-edition bag will be available only through TomBihn.com for a limited time, and only in the configuration shown. It's special, it's just for Knitty's readers, and once it's gone, it's gone.
Editor's note: WOW. We had no idea the reception for this bag would be as huge as it has been, and we're thrilled! In less than a week, Tom Bihn's original stock of this bag is sold out (specifically the fabulous Wasabi green lining fabric)!
But do not fear...they have two options for you:
For the less-patient or the purple lover: The bag as seen below will be available for pre-order (with items being delivered by early November) with Ultraviolet lining as seen on the right (that's one of their nifty Stuff Sacks) in place of the Wasabi green.
For the more-patient or the contrast-look lover: The bag as shown below is available for pre-order with delivery by mid-January.
We're sorry this means a wait for those of you who were taking your time to decide on the bag. But we can tell you that those who have received their bags already are thrilled with them. And we think it's worth the wait.
Both these pre-order options are up on Tom's site right now. And we will tell you straight: do not wait to place your pre-order if you'd like this bag. You've seen how quickly they sell out and by placing your pre-order, you will get your Knitty Anniversary Swift.
Orders end December 31, 2012, and this bag will not be offered again in our special colorway with the Knitty Anniversary logo. If you wanted one, this is your last chance to place your order!
Amy and Jennie became friends on a big boat in the middle of the Pacific Ocean, but Amy was a fan of Jennie's beautiful, functional pottery long before that. Amy's kitchen cupboards boast an enviable collection of Jennie the Potter mugs, each treasured and, most importantly, used daily.
For this project, Jennie took the 10th Anniversary theme and ran with it, adding iconic elements like Amy's Grandma's needles and, of course, rabbits. 10th Anniversary bunting and chocolate cake make this a mug to bring a party to your morning hot beverage every day. Every mug is unique: thrown, painted and carved by Jennie's own hands. She's offering them in two colorways: Amy [soft blues and greens] and Jillian [jewel tones]. Clever girl.
There are just a very few mugs ...and now Yarn Bowls! ... ready for shipping now...and she's taking
pre-orders for shipment later this fall. As Jennie says, "Handcrafted pottery takes time." Place your order now, and don't miss your chance!
All Sold Out! Jennie took many more orders than any of us expected and she regrets that she's unable to take any more. Thank you to all who ordered and we hope you enjoy your special Jennie the Potter mugs for years to come!
