Be Sweet is So nice to knit with. I am knitting a triangle shawl with extra fine boucle mohair and I LOVE it! Haven't listened to the podcast yet, but can't wait for a quiet moment so I can hear all about ALL of the be sweet yarns! I hope I win!

The meadow color is gorgeous! Thanks for all your lovely podcasts.

So sorry you are not feeling well and hope that you are back to your old self very soon! I know exactly what you mean about not being able to focus when you're under the weather! Been there and done that! And yet you managed to put out another great podcast! Thanks, I know it was probably quite an effort! I look forward to joining the KAL, just looking for yarn! Feel better!

Mecread said...

I just found your pod cast, and stole my daugters Ipod so I can listen to you when I have a free moment!

oh, the meadow is the color I am drooling over

I really like the soft rose. I think that the tee is a great length. I usually have to add to most tees.

Hi,Alana! Your podcast is so lovely and easy to understand for a German like me. You do a great job! My favourite colors are Sea Green and Plum. Thanks for your work!

I love Meadow!

Sabra said...

As always the show was wonderful. I've never knitted with 100% bamboo. I did take a look at the colors they're all great but if I had to choose one I'd go for the Soft Pink Rose.

savannagal said...

I like most of the colors, but Meadows is my favorite. I absolutely love the Spring Garden T pattern. It's simple and elegant. Lovely.

Born2knitnpurl said...

Another great episode. All the colors are great, its really hard to pick just one. the two that caught my eye was the Cooper and the Plum
(born2knitnpurl on ravelry)

cindymen said...

Thank you for the podcast! The sweater is very pretty. I think I would like to make it in the plum Be Sweet bamboo yarn.

Fleur Pang said...

Love the tee! I'd love to knit it in the Rose Pink.

Bless you for putting up the podcast even when you're feeling lousy. Feel better soon!

Tryste said...

Nice to know you're feeling better, Alana, and to catch an update from you. Also, thanks so much for all the info about Be Sweet. They've been on my radar for awhile now thanks to the GORGEOUS "Caprica" shawl pattern, and I've poked about on their website a bit, but it was nice to get so much detail from you about the company.

The bamboo yarn they have looks luscious - I think the Royal Blue's got to be my favorite from what's available on One Planet Yarn. :-)

Take care, and until next time!!

Kelly said...

Great podcast and I love the new tee! Beautiful.

Candace Michelle said...

I love the sky blue colour for the Be Sweet yarn! I think I'll have to knit this pattern for sure, it's definitely going into my queue.

Desi said...

So pretty! I think I'd like to knit it up in Color 646 - a soft sky blue. Every time I wear light blue, I get favorable comments. Who doesn't like that? Happy knitting, Alana. The podcast is so good! (I love the transitional music!)

lisa said...

Lovely pattern. And I'd love to swatch up the Aubergine color of Bambino from Be Sweet for it.

Gretchen said...

Love the pattern!!! Great photos too.

Julie said...

Great podcast, Alana. Nic's story was so good, what fun.
Be Sweet yarn looks gorgeous. I'm partial to Spring Green.

Amanda N said...

What a gorgeous pattern, and thanks so much for the yarn review and the link to the site. They have some wonderful selections. As far as the colour selection for Be Sweet yarn goes, I think its Silver Mint.

alligator said...

Wow, the Be Sweet comes in so many pretty colors! I love your new adult version of the Spring Garden Tee!

Elly said...

I'm absolutely IN LOVE WITH THIS PATTERN! Such a gorgeous design :) Great job ALANA! You are my role model! I want to design like you someday :)

Thank you for yet again another beautiful design!!

Krista said...

Another great podcast. Hope you feel better. I really like the soft rose pink color.

Lucy Chen said...

I would LOVE to win! The Spring Garden Tee may very well be my first hand knitted top!

The Coffee Diva said...

The new tee is absolutely lovely! It's on my must knit list.

cookie_troatie said...

The Be Sweet look like a fun material to knit with. I like the royal blue color but the green is nice to.

Mary Ann said...

Enjoyed this podcost.
Hope to win yarn in Champagne.

Laura said...

Your new pattern is gorgeous! The Be Sweet Bamboo sounds awesome. I love the meadow colorway.

Shantiananda said...

Love the new pattern. I think it would be GORGEOUS in the rose pink. Mwah!

Wendy said...

I love the tee! The kit is on my wishlist at One Planet. I think of the colors One Planet currently has in stock my favorites are the soft rose pink and the royal blue. If I could choose from the color card I would pick sea green or plum.

Thanks for all the great patterns and contests!

Another great podcast! I love hearing Nic's stories!

slmiller8 said...

I'looking forward to making your latest pattern; I think blue is my favorite of the colors

thewalshfam said...

I absolutely love the spring garden tee in the women's sizes! I can't wait to start knitting. I'd love it for myself, but my sister's birthday is coming up and I'm sure she'd love, too. I'm thinking about the soft rose pink color in the Be Sweet bamboo. I think it would look really nice on her. I love your podcast and I hope you're feeling better :o)

Connie, the daisyhead said...

I have enjoyed all of Nic's stories! Thanks for sharing another one.

That Silver Mint is my fav color. It must go on my shopping list. Thanks for highlighting it for us!

myapya said...

Lovely pattern and enjoyed the podcast. Sea green is my favorite Bee Sweet color.

Faith (the Vampire Slayer) said...

Normally I see a stockinette garment and think "Pretty, but I wouldn't be able to stand making that." But this pattern demands that I knit it. Lovely job! I think it'd be perfect for me in the Green Tea or Lilac colorway.

Jennifer said...

Hi Alana! Love the new pattern. I can't wait to try Be Sweet yarn.

masshag said...

What a pretty T. I've never knit with the Be Sweet yarn before. It looks quite nice. The light rose color is my favorite.
Hope you are feeling better.

Sydney said...

Your podcast is so wonderful! :)

Carol said...

I am so excited that you upsized this pattern for Adults. It's very elegant. I like the new Silver Mint colorway the best, but I think the Champagne you chose for the design is lovely, too.

twicek said...

I really like the pattern (which is unusual for me - I don't always understand knitted t-shirts), and I think it'd be fun to make one in the soft olive green.

And I'm so glad you liked the bamboo! My first to knitting projects were made with a bamboo blend and a 100% bamboo yarns, and I liked the way they felt as I worked with them, and as I wear the FOs!

sconelady said...

I love so many of the Be Sweet Bamboo colors. I guess if I"m so lucky to win I'll have to make a decision.

mahalkitagirl said...

my favorite color is fern, thanks for the podcast to listen too while I relax from clinicals

Lisa said...

Love the pattern and the photos are beautiful.

Sara said...

I am a new listener/reader and I am in love with the Indigo1

sue ites said...

THANK YOU! I have just discovered your awesome podcasts via iTunes, and boy, does my walking time go so much faster now! The only problem is I can't knit and walk at the same time! Your podcasts make me want to grab my needles even more than I do! Stormy is my fave color!

Rachel said...

I would love to knit this pattern in the Meadow color. :)

Meilynne said...

Love-love-love your podcast! I just wish you did it every day, lol!

My favorite Be Sweet colorway is Sea Green. I've been meaning to order one of their yarns in that lovely teal color, so if I don't win, I definitely will.

Handcrafted Accents said...

Great podcast, as usual!
I love the color plum!

Betsy said...

Love the green and love, love, love the podcast!

Elledub said...

The new pattern is tormenting me! Can't decide which color of Be Sweet Bamboo is the ultimate! Beautiful photos, and as always, a great podcast. You keep me company on my early morning walks, as my mind races, trying to prioritize my knitting queue. Thanks for the inspiration.

I loved Nic's story about the baby coat - and thanks for the link to the finished piece, it is gorgeous!

Of course, I'd love to win some yarn - maybe in Meadow?

Diane said...

Thanks for a great podcast. Hope you're feeling better soon!

Brenda said...

Love the podcast! I'm a long time fan.
I like the sky blue color.

Thanks for the contest!

KNitDesigns said...

Another wonderful show.
I like the light sky blue. Looking forward to the next show

Connie said...

I just bought two skeins of the bambino (the mix with cotton/bamboo) in Aubergine, which was lovely. I'd love to see how different the 100% bamboo is.

Juliaknit said...

Great pattern! I love the meadow colorway and would love to try 100% bamboo.

Megan C. said...

I think this tee in the champagne colour you chose would go perfectly with a green and gold silk skirt my MIL brought me from India. Also love that it's top down.

I really enjoy your podcasts, they are informative but also laid-back funny. As to your blog, I am constantly seeing projects on I'd love to make myself, and your photos are book-worthy. Honestly - they are better than most knitting-magazine ads. Thanks!

Mrs. Pivec said...

Wow, those colors are gorgeous - it's hard to choose just one. But if I were knitting your tee, I would choose "Stormy" for myself. So lovely!

Rebecca said...

Great podcast. I really adore the silver mint colorway of bamboo

Rosemary said...

Alana: Another great podcast. Always sharing and soooo inspiring.

I love the sweater in the meadow colorway. I think that is the color I would definitely choose. It is a beautiful sweater.

Get podcast - loved the blush story. I would be so happy to try the soft rose pink colourway.
thanks for a lovely half hour of knitting.

emsres said...

Another wonderful podcast. Thanks so much for sharing the story of the Be Sweet Yarn Co. It's great to be able to support a company that is doing such wonderful things. As for picking a color--how to choose, they're all so lovely. I guess being a blue jeans girl I'd have to pick Pale Sky.

Lisa said...

I always smile when I listen to Nic's stories. I look forward to your next podcast.

Lisa said...

Always love listening to Nic's stories. I look forward to the next episode!

Carla said...

I think my favorite is the original Champaign color. I am a neutral kind of person and this would go with everything and could be dressy or with jeans.CJ

knitterlydesigns said...

I really love Color 646 - a soft sky blue. I also love Nic's stories. I will check out her blog. Thanks for the great podcast.

Jules said...

Really great the changes you made to this to convert it to a "womanly" pattern from the girls' version. It's so pretty. I like the champagne color it's knitted in on the pattern.

Cathy&Steve said...

I just finished the Cosette Wrap, and really enjoy the podcast. I think my favorite color of the Be Sweet Bamboo is the sugar purple.
