View Full Version : Lux Bag + Knitting Insert?!?

07-06-2005, 10:59 AM
Being an avid knitter, when I saw that Tom Bihn was making a knitting bag, I had to wipe the drool off my face and suppress my envy of the knitty.com editors who already have one...
Of course, the second thing I did was go over to:
to enter for my chance at one...but I was hoping that someone might be able to give me a sneak peak of it? What does it look like, I must know!
Is it better than all my other knitting bags (I start a lot of knitting projects, but very few of them ever get finished, so consequently, I have a collection of knitting bags)?
Any tidbits of information (or pictures! must see knitting bag!) would be hugely appreciated!
Don't mind my dorkiness...I'm a knitter who loves bags.

It's very sleek and sexy looking...very modern, definitely feminine but not girly.

We should have pictures around the 15th - 19th.

thankyou thankyou thankyou!!!
I can't wait!
Can you give me an idea of when it will be available for sale?

It should be available for pre-order the same time when the pictures are on the Web site - around the 15h-19th, with a ship date of late August/early September.

Any word on this yet?
I swear, if I didn't have Harry Potter #6 to read, I couldn't handle the anticipation!

You'll get pictures in just a few more days...

It took a few more days than I said it would, but they are here:pictures of The LUX (http://www.tombihn.com/page/001/PROD/TBP/TB0650). It's also now available for order with a shipping date of late September.

But what about the knitting inserts? Also, Knitty.com still has the contest up but the survey appears to be closed. What's the scoop?

The survey and contest have ended and the winners have been selected. They've all received their prizes. Pictures of them with their LUX bags will be on the Knitty site and our site shortly.

Tom has the survey information (along with a bag of knitting accessories) and is designing the knitting insert. We expect it to be available early next year.
