    I'm not on Instagram or Twitter, but I try to remember to look at the TB posts from time to time... The latest showed a sneak peak of the knitting pre-order stuff, including some of the colour combos (yay Original Halcyon!), and a comment to the fact that the Tall Yarn Stuff Sack isn't going to be made since a bunch of Halcyon is still sitting delayed at the port.

      All those glorious colors…It will be very hard to decide! I’m sad about the Tall Yarn Stuff Sack, tho; I was really looking forward to getting a couple of those

        The post did say that they'd consider doing the Tall YSS later in the year maybe, once supply settles down

            This was the tweet (should be generally readable, I think)https://twitter.com/tombihn/status/1492544687168753665

              Hello, Darcy, will the Daylight Backpacks listed as in production have the new comfort straps (and if not, any update as to when those will be coming)? Thanks!

                    I have to say, as a petite person who had the original Sprout and stubbornly insisted it "worked" as a backpack-style purse. . . . it really didn't. The Paradigm is a much better choice for both fit and organization. As soon as I packed my Paradigm the first time, I put the Sprout on Ebay with no hesitation.

                    I'm sure the Sprout is great for small kids, though!

                      I don’t have small kids anymore (alas!), but I’m thinking of picking up a couple for future grandkids (no pressure, kids!)

                          How did I miss those?! I think I have all the colors, but I may need some more…fill with baked goods & give as gifts!

                            It was mentioned in the newsletter email that due to the delay in some zippers for products that were in process, they quickly pivoted to make some batches of other products.

                            ETA: and that's a cool gift idea! I think we need a) to be on your gift list or b) at least get photos of the yummy goodness in the PUT 😁

                              Meglet The redesigned Sprout worked a lot better than the original Sprout. Even though those were apparently not very large changes. It still has advantages over the Paradigm and the hack for extending the straps meant that you could even use this on a growing kid or on a somewhat larger adult ( or a not so bulky adult wearing bulky outerwear). It’s wider than either the Paradigm or the Zeitschrift, so some of the reason that smaller build forum users love the Smart Alec apply.

                              @Wanderlust did you get versions of the Pick-Up Truck in the 630d recycled fabric? That was the major addition to the Pick-Up Truck preorder ( along with the fact that at the time they announced the original retirement. Deep Blue was not available because the fabric wa in the process of being restocked).

                                I have the Deep Blue, Burnt Orange, Nebulous Grey, and Aubergine in 525 Ballistic.
                                And Dawn, Coyote, Island, and Grass in 210 Ballistic.
                                I don’t have any in the recycled fabric yet, but they’re in my Wish List.
