maybe I can do more of this in 2012. Thanks for saying it, I needed to see it!
no worries about your post. I was joking back, sorry if it didn't come out that way :)
I understand that feeling inside when you are gripped with excitement and anticipation of the goodness coming from Ohio Ave. I feel honored to have been considered as an inspiration. There are so many others here who are inspiration to me. When I am trying to decide what bag, what color, what fabric or all of the above, much of my decision making process is lead by posts, pictures, video, etc. posted by forum members. It was similar comments and posts on Ravelry 4 years ago, very shortly after I had joined, about an awesome new knitting bag that introduced me to the Swift and TB. Don't get me wrong, this site has nice pictures and descriptions, but I am somebody who wants to experience things before I invest money in purchasing them. The colorful representations from others paved the way for me to vicariously experience these bags. I felt confident to purchase sight unseen. I haven't been disappointed either! I hope that by continuing in that tradition, I can share with others and possibly help them to see value in considering TB bags for their future needs.
