    Thumbs up Swift - Excellent Knitting Bag

    I bought myself a Swift for Christmas this year. It came with the standard Yarn Stuff sack, but I also purchased another Yarn Stuff sack with the clear bottom. This bag rocks. I am a guy who knits, and I am not exactly dainty. I use really large needles and thick yarn (my friends call it "rope"). This bag does everything the Tom Bihn folks claim it does. Plenty of space to hold several projects in the main compartment at once. I use one of the built-in clear zip pockets to hold miscellaneous small knitting apparatus. The other one on the opposite side holds my bills and change. The key loop is fantastic, too. I am really tough on bags, and have used this non-stop since December. This bag rides in my car with me daily. Back and forth to work, to kids' swim classes, to kids gymnastic classes, on road trips. I can easily load whichever project I want to work on into the bag with no worries at all. The handles are great. The bag stands up on its own and is so easy to use. Just an aside, but I LOVE this company. Tom Bihn makes the best stuff in the world. If you knit (whether male or female), this is the bag for you. The bag is a little more expensive than TB's other totes, but you have to remember that this was specifically designed for knitters. And it is worth every penny.
    I tell everyone about these bags and buy them as gifts for people when possible. Thanks Tom and Company for the great bags! - Bobster
