    Unhappy Lux- Knitting insert?

    I've been waiting a year for the knitting insert for the lux bag. I actually put off buying another knitting bag because I was so excited about this bag. Where is it? I keep checking the website and I just don't see it.

    What happened?

    Tom has just sent a prototype of a new knitting bag to the editors of Knitty Magazine to test.

    It has some really cool features including clear, see-through pockets and a Dyneema drawstring pouch.

    Tom has created three different knitting bag prototypes so far. We're hoping that this fourth prototype is what will become the actual bag.

    The consensus was that an knitting insert for the LUX just wouldn't work, after prototypes of that were tested, and that basically a LUX with built-in pockets for knitting accessories would work best. It's too bad because an insert would have been really cool, but it just ended up not working.
