I was in a LYS on the other coast and they had what I thought were Colinette AbFab kits, but they were by another manufacturer and I can't remember who. The employee told me that the designer from Colinette switched companies so now this other company was doing them too but I can't find. Anyone know?
Is this it? http://www.colinette.com/search.php?search_query=absolutely+fabulous+throw&recommendation=39351http://www.jimmybeanswool.com/knitting/yarn/colinette/AbsolutelyFabulousThrowKit.asphttp://www.yarnmarket.com/yarn/Other_Knit_Kits-The_Absolutely_Fabulous_Throw_Kit-5619.html
Holy cow..they must be knit with spun gold. :shock:
No, it looked EXACTLY like the Colinette but was another company, the designer from Colinette left I guess and brought the AbFab concept with them, from what I understood.
I'm so saddened by your post. I was expecting it to be a throw with Edina Monsoon and Patsi Stone done in intarsia on it.
But if you want the pattern it's still available...I'm not sure what the problem is here then.. :??
He wanted the Colinette yarn...?
I think the third link at least uses that yarn with the pattern. :think:
there were two reasons i wanted to know, one because I was excited about it and wanted to share it with everyone (but forgot LOL) and the other that I hoped I could get it a little less expensive than the Colinette since I've long coveted them.
It was driving me nuts so I called and now I remember why I was so excited. It's Schaefer!!!
I'm sorry, sweetie darling!
:teehee: Amazing what a phone call can do!
I felt weird calling because I had no intention of buying it from them LOL (sigh)
ETA: No less spendy than the Colinette, unfortunately. But delicious!
