This month we had Susan Stambaugh from Abstract Fiber talk to us about her hand-painted yarn and fiber. Susan opened her company only 6 years ago, she operates from her garage and basement, with three employees to help her. Susan learned about color when she was quilting. She actually dyed thread first an then fiber since she loved to spin. Now we have her awesome yarns as well.
Susan brought many patterns knit up in her yarns and I think everyone saw something they liked and wanted to make. This caused the yarn to fly out the door. I can’t wait to see what you all create. Some of the patterns I caught the names of were: Brickless- http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/brickless, Jo’s Pride hooded shawl – http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/jos-pride-hooded-shawl, Leafwise – http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/leafwise, Drogue – http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/drogue, Seamless Yoked Baby Sweater – http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/seamless-yoked-baby-sweater, Heartland Shawl – http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/heartland-lace-shawl, Morning Surf Scarf – http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/morning-surf-scarf, 28’s Big Sister 77 Shawl (reversible) – http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/28s-big-sister-77, PI Shawl – http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/pi-shawl-july, Roses in December – http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/roses-in-december, Daybreak and Akimbo by Steven West, Feather Lace shawl and Birch Scarf by Chrissy Gardiner and Arasi by Sara Morris.
