    While watching the Little Swift Azalea video, I found myself thinking about The Swift [Accessory/Tool/Needle Bag]. The perfect pair featuring Camera I-O and Tripod-Lighting Kit Quiver video got me thinking about a Field Pen Holder which could be coupled with the FJN.

    By the way, my lovely Plum FJN is even cooler and user friendly than previously experienced.

    I'm very interested in a needle case too. I use Addi interchangeable needles and would love a case with slots for my different size needles and a way to label them. I also have a bunch of cables that I'm going to store in one of the clear, medium sized organizer pouch.

    Still can't wait for the TB needle case. Any updates Darcy?

    What's happening with the needle case? I've tried a couple that are available and they've been a waste of money. I'm looking forward to seeing what Tom came up with.

    Just a warning that if one of the colors that you've been admiring is Indigo, the Kit (being made of ballistic nylon), is going to be one of the products affected by the fact that this color will no longer be available. Having said that, I'll just add that even though I own a Kit in Indigo, which matches beautifully with my Indigo Synapse, I'm more likely to use one of my Kiwi Kits, simply because it's easier to find items inside with the light-colored interior (which also contrasts very nicely with Indigo). Like backpack, I do have Kits in multiple colors.

    Sounds of glee because it's coming soon!

    Since the last time I posted to this thread, I've become a knitter as well as a crocheter: so I need a Swift needle/hook/accessory bag more than ever. My Swift runneth over with needles now as well as crochet hooks. I use straights and circulars, and I have two fixed circulars but an entire set of KnitPicks interchangeable needles as well. However, I found a wonderful fabric needle organizer for that on Etsy: it even has a zippered plastic pouch in the center for cables, and it snaps shut (not like the rolls you see so often).

    However, this doesn't keep me from hoping that soon there will be a Tom Bihn case especially designed for the Swift to hold at least some of my knitting/crocheting tool collection. I can't wait!

    I own Kits in different colors and they are great as Small Pouches holders and marker's cases.

    Well there are endless uses for the Kit, I want to make sure new members are aware of that amazing stylish little accessory.

    Also, I like backpack's earlier idea about an Ultrasuede flap to prevent things in the pockets from scratching one another. If this is implemented, I would get one for knitting tools and one for transporting fountain pens.

    And I too would loooovve to have this available in Ultraviolet Dyneema!

    Pre-order... maybe in a month or two. The move has pushed a few things back.

    Yee-ha! Can't wait to see what you've come up with. With no other alternative, I designed mine out of paper and then had a friend sew them for me out of duck cloth (fairly rugged). I'm prepared to be shamed by Tom's superior design.

    I keep my big ol' plastic hooks (really all my plastic hooks, which I only use when traveling) in a Medium pouch. They all fit quite well. I even put in a couple of shorter Tunisian hooks. Still need something for the long Tunisian hooks, though. I use an old pencil case for most of my hooks.

    I probably have close to 100 crochet hooks. And I use them all!
