In 2005, Knitty and Tom Bihn collaborated to design what we think is the ultimate knitting bag. So when we reached our milestone 10th Anniversary, it seemed fitting to celebrate it with a special-edition Swift!
The Knitty 10th Anniversary Swifthas the same ultra-functional features you know and love, but in a brand-new color combination, just for us! The outer color is brand new: it’s ballistic nylon in a deep raspberry purple called Aubergine. The reverse side features sleek Steel grey ballistic. Inside, the pockets are lined with Kiwi, and the included clear-bottomed Stuff Sack matches the lining.
And to top it all off, our special 10th Anniversary Logo is carefully embroidered onto each bag on the Aubergine side. We love how these colors look together, and have been carrying our prototypes around to envious glances from knitters everywhere.

This special-edition bag will be available only through TomBihn.com for a very limited time, and only in the configuration shown. It’s special, it’s just for Knitty’s readers, and once it’s gone, it’s gone.
Amy and Jennie became friends on a big boat in the middle of the Pacific Ocean, but Amy was a fan of Jennie’s beautiful, functional pottery long before that. Amy’s kitchen cupboards boast an enviable collection of Jennie the PotterÂ mugs, each treasured and, most importantly, used daily.
For this project, Jennie took the 10th Anniversary theme and ran with it, adding iconic elements like Amy’s Grandma’s needles and, of course, rabbits. 10th Anniversary bunting and chocolate cake make this a mug to bring a party to your morning hot beverage every day. Every mug is unique: thrown, painted and carved by Jennie’s own hands. She’s offering them in two colorways: Amy [soft blues and greens] and Jillian [jewel tones]. Clever girl.
Jillian is the author of the best-selling spinning book Yarnitecture. She is the editor of Knittyspin and Developmental Editor for PLY and PLY Books. She kinda loves this spinning thing and wants everyone who spins to love it too, so she teaches and writes a lot. She knits, weaves, and stitches and tries to do as much of it as she can with handspun yarn. She's always cooking up all kinds of exciting and creative things combining fiber arts.
She likes her mysteries British, her walks woodsy, and to spend as much time as she can laughing.
