    2015 New Designs, are they there yet?

    It was on the blog:

    Skookum Dog Citizen Canine
    Cross-Body Knitting Bag
    TOM BIHN Luggage Tag

    Also, any news on the FJN for portable e-devices?


    And... where is my Dyneema Trench?
    This is a running joke, as I met Tom and Darcy, they are fully aware, that your truly, height, girth and width would take the better length of a roll of yummy UV Dyneema fabric.
    I saw those rolls of fabrics at the factory.

    Better models who include all Seattle area TB forum participants.

    I'm actually in a top-secret location testing the latest -- and, we think, final -- Citizen Canine prototype right now. I'm hoping to be given the OK to post hints sometime soon!

    The cross-body knitting bag is being designed. I'm hearing lots of interesting ideas and seeing some intriguing sketches....

    We expect the TOM BIHN Luggage Tag will be available for order by late February (along with a couple of other surprises!)

    And, of course, there's other stuff in the works but I've been sworn to secrecy.

    I wouldn't expect a new Field Journal Notebook anytime soon. It's on the list, but it's not currently being worked on.
    Current Carry: Skookum Dog Citizen Canine prototype, Founder's Briefcase (every day carry), Small Cafe Bag (every day carry), Shop Bags (groceries, extra random stuff), Aeronaut 45 (travel), Synapse 19 (day hikes), Smart Alec (longer day hikes), Skookum Dog Road Duffel (Medium) (travel), Clear Organizer Wallet, Travel Stuff Sacks, Organizer Cubes

    Darcy, You have developed and finely honed your TB tease. Brava!
    The stockpile keeps growing...I'm in serious trouble.

    How about an updated Western Flyer? Or just a restock of the rolling luggage handle version?

    Darcy last year you mentioned a new Backpack Design, while you are in the "spilling some hints mood" might you want to say something about that too?

    Very happy about the Citizen Canine!
    Very sad about the Field Journal Notebook.
    Very exited about HINTS and SECRETS and that all leading to exiting new products!!!

    Nooo! Don't tempt me! I can say that the new backpack design is still a ways away.

    I am so excited to hear about the Citizen Canine! I have avoided buying a cheapo poop bag holding accessory in anticipation. I look forward to the surprises, too!

    Darcy, is the cross body knitting bag the Imago replacement? Or will it be similar in volume to the Little Swift that is retiring?

    As of now (or at the time of the announcement?), it's the same size as the LS. (See post #1 here.) May be 'upsized' if the response is good, though! (here)

    Darcy, I'm totally here for you if you need a brand new knitter to test out the bag. You know, to make sure it's really intuitive, even for newbies.

    Ditto what @Pokilani said. You know, in case you need two new knitters for testing :-)

    Thanks @adalangdon, I don't know how I missed that detail when I first read that post!

    If you want an extremely experienced, always-knitting knitter, let me know.
