    ''Wasabi'' is such a fun word to say and it's such a bold looking color. *Thumbs up*

    I know a lady who'd like Aubergine/Aubergine/Wasabi! Can I justify another order already? Sadly, I think I need to wait till another of the bags I'm looking for comes long first... something in 400d Wasabi? A large café bag? A Ristretto? Large Synapse? Where's the soppy-begging-dog emoticon when you need it??

    Great starting color combinations!

    Darcy, can you clarify the color combinations: what is the color of bag lining? Is it still the dyneema steel? Or does the bag lining match the color of the pocket?

    Also, are there any plans to make the Little Swift with dyneema pockets also?

    Thanks.

    Steel/Steel/UV would be awesome, too.

    Oh!
    OH!
    The not-so-distant drum roll! So glad I checked back tonight...
    Great color combos!
    Yes. The Navy/navy/iberian Swift will be ordered tomorrow. (Sigh). I'm that pathetic...and once it arrives, I will post a N-I family photo

    Drat! I missed the voting. But I think it's fantastic that y'all gave us a vote. Though I'm a bit confused. Does this mean that Clear Pockets are gone? Or does it mean that the lining behind the Clear Pocket is now available in different colors of Dyneema? Though I love the availability of colored Dyneema, I will miss the Clear Pockets. Is there a photo up of the new pockets yet, Darcy?

    Thanks,

    ~Nancy

    See this photo of the Knitty 10th Anniversary Swift inside-out: the bag isn't actually lined. The only Dyneema/nylon on the bag is there as the fabric backing of the clear urethane pockets.

    The new color combinations (no photos until we actually make them -- sorry!) will be just like this: Dyneema/nylon backing of the clear urethane pockets, but this time in Ultraviolet, Iberian, Wasabi or Steel, depending on the color combination.

    Noted. I bought so many Swifts & LS I should know these bags are not lined . Love the new colorful pocket back - I hope you make the Swift & LS with all-dyneema pockets in the future.

    Yay - does that mean I should start an order up and have it held until my all-green Swift is available? Kiwi/Wasabi would be better than Forest/Wasabi, by the way - more light in the interior - but I'll settle for either!

    :+>

    I need a nicely coloured Swift to go with all my Little Swifts, which are fantastic little handbags (which Americans would call a "purse".)

    The Swift in Cork with Ultraviolet Pockets

    Note: the Medium, Clear Bottom, Yarn Stuff Sack included with the Swift and Swift in Cork is matched to the pocket lining color. For example: included with the Swift in Cork with Ultraviolet Pockets is a Medium, Clear Bottom, Yarn Stuff Sack in Ultraviolet.
