The Knitty® 10th Anniversary Swift story, as told by Amy Singer, Editor of Knitty®
In 2005, Knitty® and TOM BIHN collaborated to design what we think is the ultimate knitting bag. So when we reached our milestone 10th Anniversary, it seemed fitting to celebrate it with a special-edition Swift! The Knitty 10th Anniversary Swift has the same ultra-functional features you know and love, but in a brand-new color combination, just for us! The outer color is brand new: it’s ballistic nylon in a deep raspberry purple called Aubergine. The reverse side features sleek Steel grey ballistic. Inside, the pockets are lined with Wasabi, and the included Stuff Sack matches the lining. And to top it all off, our special 10th Anniversary Logo is carefully embroidered onto each bag on the Aubergine side. We love how these colors look together, and have been carrying our prototypes around to envious glances from knitters everywhere.
This special-edition bag will be available only through TomBihn.com for a limited time, and only in the configuration shown. It’s special, it’s just for Knitty®’s readers, and once it’s gone, it’s gone.
In stock and ready to ship within one business day. $100. Visit the 10th Anniversary Knitty Swift page for more details and photos.
The embroidery of the 10th anniversary logo on the Knitty® 10th Anniversary Swift is incredibly detailed and intricate. Not ones to settle for anything less than perfection, we went through several rounds of designs and embroidery tests before we settled on this, the final version. That’s why the 10th Anniversary Knitty Swift is $100 (the Swift is $90.)
We will introduce more bags in Aubergine, our new color of U.S. 1050d high tenacity ballistic nylon, soon. Stay tuned.
