Perfect. Just perfect.
I just received my pre-ordered Swift in Cork and - WOW. It's bigger than I was expecting (which I like) and the swath of cork trimmed in black is beyond beautiful. It stands upright on its own and the handles are more than long enough to slip over my shoulder, even with it filled. It is simply a stunning bag.
I ordered the Swift even though I don't knit primarily because of the cork but also because I wanted a bag to throw a couple of books in, maybe my little Acer Aspire One, my Kindle, or any of my other take-alongs. My stainless water bottle sits perfectly in one end, held in place by a small carbiner-esque clip, with plenty of room to spare for all my other goodies.
And the coolest thing for me is that the horizontal Freudian Slip fits! Yes, the corners stick out a bit, but I don't mind that at all. It's perfect for taking all my notes and supplies with me for a research session at the library or a long writing session at the beach or a coffee house. Just perfect.
This bag is now my number one bag. Thanks to Tom Bihn and all the crew for bringing this beautiful bag to production.
