    Oh, good. I was getting confused between the pictures listed with the Swift and the pictures on the Stuff Sack page. Cannot wait to get one of these in my Imago!

    Thanks!

    Many thanks for the clarification, Darcy. Now I just have to wait (patiently... patiently, I tell you!) for the new batch of colors in the Swift.

    I missed the info on yellow. This is great. When I ordered my final version they only had steel. I have a couple of the earlier bags which I continue to use. But I'd love a yellow. I'm going to buy another sapphire and a yellow as soon as they yellow comes out.

    new Stuff Sack color!

    I have to be honest - I've been watching these developments closely because I'm getting ready to "upgrade" from ziploc bags and invest in some decent project bags. The Stuff Sack has been in the running against a stiff competitor, the GoKnit bag, which comes in more colors and sizes (I have to "color-code" everything to be organized enough just to get out of the house) and has the detachable yarn-loop, but the Stuff Sack's clear bottom was winning out.

    now - yippeee!!! yellow is an awesome color for this bag - I can't wait! This (plus the clear bottom, PLUS the new grommet!) makes the Stuff Sack a complete winner for me.

    Will be placing an order when I get my next paycheck for the current bright-blue, and am anxiously awaiting the yellow to add to my collection! (and yes - I know I don't even have one yet, but it's already a "collection!" um ... you will be continuing to add new colors, won't you? "gotta have the new color" is what makes it a collection, right?) ;~)

Now understand that I am working with a large skein of yarn, properly wound. But large skeins of yarn, pulled from the middle, particularly thin yarn, is wont to tangle as it comes from the ball. Which this one does periodically. Well, the newest prototype handled it all quite beautifully! It is wonderful. No tangling caused by the loop or the snap on the loop or anything. It works perfectly. I love, love, love it!!!!! Congratulate Tom for this diligent search. I give it an A+++++++++!!!!!
    The Big Sleep! I just watched that (for the tenth time) a few weeks ago: B & W rules!

    The new red fabric tab/snap works really well! I've been using it for a few days now in a variety of situations with no problems. There are 2 things you may want to consider for future incarnations, if possible and if they make sense in constructing the bag... 1) moving the tab to the vertical seam (side) in the bag instead of the horizontal seam so that the yarn flows more easily through the tab; and 2) making the tab narrower (would require a smaller snap).

    Thanks for letting me test this!

    lgsplace that's such great news. It sounds like the new one is perfect. I'd like to preorder one if I can.
