This was supposed to go out yesterday, but I set it to publish on the wrong date! Bummer!
As you’re reading this, I’m on my way to visit Susie at the farm to help out with the Spring 2013 yarn & pattern line photo shoot. I’m super excited to get an exclusive sneak peek at what’s in store for the spring season and have been reminiscing over last spring’s yarns and patterns, so I thought this week we’d take a look at what you’ve made with last season’s Sabine!
Jazzy-J-Stitches made this Lynden in 08 Foliage. Lynden was designed by Marie Grace Smith for the Sabine pattern line. I particularly like the cable detail that runs down the sleeves!
Marrow5 crocheted this cable hat in 11 Deep Blue Sea. At first glance I was fooled into thinking that those were knit cables, but they’re actually crocheted ones!
Okay, this next one wasn’t made by you. It was actually made by ME! When my friend HowdyPandowdy announced that she was having a baby girl, I couldn’t resist knitting her this Concentric Circle’s cardigan that I’ve loved ever since it was first published. The main color is 01 Fettucini with accents in 05 Posy and 12 Sirius. HowdyPandowdy graciously took this picture of her little one and allowed me to use it.
This Bramble Wrap, knit in the suggested colorway #10 Icicle, was made for the Close Knit Sisters shop! It is located in North Conway, NH, should you wish to stop by and visit the wrap! Again, it was designed by Marie Grace Smith.
This sweet baby blanket was knit by AbbyLauren for her
niece, (woops, surprise!) nephew. I’m sure that he appreciated this Wool Leaves.
M1-M2-M3-43Me made this Amari in 04 Berry Farm & 02 Butterscotch. In order to make it larger, she both worked until she ran out of the main color and increased needle sizes as she worked toward the lace edging. A knit-along for Amari was hosted in the JMF group, as it is another pattern that Marie Grace Smith designed for the 2012 Spring yarn & pattern line.
I have adored the Chelsea Skirt since it came out in 2010. Why didn’t I think of making it in Sabine myself? knitterdre definitely had the right idea by making it in 08 Foliage!
jdunsmore knitted this Aspen, designed by (guess who?) Marie Grace Smith. The main color is 12 Sirius, with: Berry Farm, Posy, Deep Blue Sea, Sea Glass, and Limeade as accent colors.
This last one is one that I modeled myself and makes me think back fondly on the cold day, little sleep, and hard work I did last year! I can’t wait to get back to the farm and slip into a sweater designed for June in a cold January day and pretend that my lips aren’t turning blue and my teeth aren’t chattering! Or think up new storylines for the photographs! Or eat some of Susie’s Best Chicken Noodle Soup in the Universe.
I’ll even try to convince Susie to let me show you some sneak peeks! And if time allows I’ll take some photos of the farm of my own to share with you.
Susie texted me to let me know that the internet was down at the farm. I’m hoping it’ll be back by the time I arrive so I can share my adventure with you!
