    The LSB came skating! It held three kids' helmets, warm stuff, elbow pads and one pair of bobskates. Love the padded handles!

    I have the same light, and I'm totally with you on the push button switch, or really any type that is easy to work one-handed.

    I. Love. It. as a diaper kit. If I'm dropping the kids off, I just leave it with the sitter and everything is there. The Snake Charmer has also been used this way, but it's a little small for me.

    Synapse 19/25

    I don't think either the S19 or S25 is a bad choice, but I have both and I generally prefer the S19 for its significantly sleeker form factor. It's just looks and feels so compact.

    Most people, I...

    It fits height-wise, but it's round so has a much bigger footprint than the TSS. You could fit the smallest YSS in there, but not if it's even close to full. IMHO the size 1 TSS is the way to go.

    Not great. The clips are a bit too close together. The double carabiners are not bad, though; they're longer than the triangular clips so they can splay out to reach the o-rings on the organizer cube...

    1. I don't think the Pack will damage the wrap. You'll have to make the final call, but I never noticed anything like that with my wraps or packs.

    Share Your Bag Hacks/Creative Uses

    I have two hacks that I use pretty much daily, though I'm not claiming credit for inventing them.

    First, the PCSB and SE fit beautifully beside each other vertically in the S19. (The SCB also...

    Don't worry - if you keep going your fingers will learn how to do it and it will become all muscle memory. Sports are awesome knitting time.

    Whatever works for you is the "right" way (hat tip: Elizabeth Zimmermann). It is faster to not let go of the needle, but perfectly acceptable if it produces work that pleases you.
