I am so excited to finally reveal the latest collaboration between Jane Richmond and I - SEASONLESS | Mini Collection Volume One is here!!!!
Modern minimalism was our style inspiration and pieces that were suited to any season was the end goal. An open work lace hat (Schwimmen), drop stitch crescent shawl (Laylow) designed by me and comfortable pullover (Palladio) designed by Jane Richmond make up the seasonless pieces of this gorgeous mini collection!
Over the weekend we had a booth at the 3rd annual Knit City where we launched our newest collection! We had originally planned to sell a limited number of printed booklets as a special release at Knit City and then return home to make the digital versions available. But the response to the printed booklets has been overwhelming and we would love to give everyone an opportunity to buy their very own printed copy!
So today we are so excited to launch the lovely eBook (76 pages), because we just can't bear to keep you waiting any longer! But if you have your heart set on a hard copy (29 pages) of SEASONLESS we will be offering the printed booklets for a limited time, coming soon! So stay tuned for that on our blogs and on our website - www.marianraepublications.com! You can see photos, get info, read our blog and stay up to date on all things Marian Rae Publications there as well as follow us on twitter HERE. And don't forget to follow along and tag all your project pics with #seasonlessknits.

THE NEW PATTERNS
I've been so excited to show you all the 2 patterns that I designed for SEASONLESS! I promise to feature them both on the blog and give you all the details and behind the scenes on my newest patterns soon but in the meantime here's some gorgeous shots & a bit of info! I can't stop wearing both and I'm so happy with them and hope you will all love them too!
LAYLOW is a fresh, modern and reversible shawl pattern that is knit up in fingering weight for a versatile, seasonless accessory. It's airy, lightweight and a relaxing knit with an easy to memorize stitch pattern.
SCHWIMMEN is a fun and enjoyable project with a flowing pattern repeat & addictive open work. It's an interesting and pleasant knit that is sure to be a staple in your year-round wardrobe.
Jane and I are so in love with this special collection! The Mini Collections are a new series we will be releasing in between our larger book publications. We truly hope you will enjoy knitting and wearing these as much as we do!
A huge thank you all of you for your endless support! You all mean so much to me and your support is truly the reason I am able to continue to do what I love. And another thank you to my fabulous testers - you guys rock, and to my family - I love you so much - thank you for putting up with me being a major stress case these last few weeks.
Happy knitting - seasonlessly.
We posted a very sneaky video sneak peek of SEASONLESS | Mini Collection Volume One last week and now we thought it would be fun to have a guessing game giveaway!!!
For this year's release from Marian Rae Publications Jane and I truly wanted it to be a total surprise! That's why there are literally no pictures of the knits in our SEASONLESS promo video. We really wanted to try to get across the mood and vibe of SEASONLESS without giving away the patterns. Now don't be mad, trust us in that it will be way more fun this weekend when you pop by our booth (#40) at Knit City and get to see them for the first time!
And for those of you not able to attend Knit City, don't worry, we will be posting all the images, patterns etc for you to see and buy as soon as we are back! It's a surprise for everyone this year!
But since we're leaving what the patterns look like as a total surprise we thought we could at least give you a few clues as to what SEASONLESS | Mini Collection Volume One is.
CLUE #1 || SEASONLESS is NOT a book - it's a booklet. This year we are doing something a little different. SEASONLESS is Volume One of our new series "Mini Collection" and it's available as a gorgeous 32 page booklet in print. We hope you will all love it as much as we do.
Once SEASONLESS is available for purchase online next week you will be able to buy a HUGE (more than double the page count than the print booklet!) eBook with lots of gorgeous bonus photos as well as the individual PDF patterns from SEASONLESS. Plus we will also have a special surprise for you all next week upon it's pre-order release as well!
But in the meantime who would like to win a copy of SEASONLESS?
