    Yay! I've been looking for a knitting bag for months. I really wanted a swift but none of the colors were really me. I'm so happy that I now have a forest/hemp coming my way

    Hmm. If they weren't closing I-90 for the Blue Angels tomorrow, I'd say then, but traffic going over the lake will be a nightmare. My next time I'll be close by when you are open will be the 15th, unless you are open on a Saturday between now and then.

    Cool. When do you think you're next visit will be?

    Someone else (like me) who'd rather be behind the camera than in front of it?

    I love the Navy, the Cardinal, and the Forest, but am surprising myself by liking the Forest/Hemp best: I would not have predicted that, since I tend to think of Forest Green as a "default" color for all things camping-related. But this Forest Green is gorgeous, and it works well with the Hemp. However, seeing the Cardinal makes me happy that my Cardinal/Cardinal Little Swift will be arriving in a couple of weeks.

    I have the navy/steel swift, and I have to say, while the Cardinal and Forest offerings are quite cool, the navy still has my heart.

    I'd also love to volunteer to model bags for Tom Bihn.

    Are you on Ravelry? There might be someone there who's willing/wanting to trade.

    Arrggh! Cardinal/Hemp is my ideal swift! I bought the olive/linen (which is still beautiful) last year, but now I wish I had waited for the cardinal/hemp.

    Anyone want to buy a cardinal/hemp and swap it with me for the olive/linen???

    Lol, as much as that sounds like a grand plan, in application it wouldn't quite work out for me. For one Rocky would kill me. For two, as it is, I have already breeched my bag storage spaces and am spilling into overflow which gets sideways looks. (If much more came to live here I would have to start posting about how nice a plant holder the Forest/Hemp becomes when I'm not carrying it and 101 one ways to use the Cardinal Hemp around the house). For three, I have other obsessions that are starting to be jealous like my yarn and fiber stashes; and the shoes are staging an uprising as evidenced by the first desoling I've ever experienced when my Teva Spiders lost the entire outer heel at camp.
    I'm sure there will be much more TB in my future, but a girl of my resources has to pace herself. . .

    dorayme;27984]oh, the Forest/Hemp is also very nice, much more of a visual contrast of light and dark, IMHO. So many choices, what to do, what to do???

    Maybe the contrast is what bothers me too. I have thought the Kiwi/Hemp would be a fantastic 3 color combo and wondered why it was never done since both were fabrics in the LS so having a bigger coordinating version to me just made sense.
