Something New

Hi Knitters,
I am working on a new toy project design/pattern scheduled for June 2011 release (the location of where the pattern will be available is secret right now) using Spud & Chloƫ Sweater in the following colors, Firefly, Chipmunk, Firecracker, Rootbeer and Splash. Oh, and there's a little bit of Ice Cream, too, but it's not in the photo.

Any guesses what it will be?
best, susie

Guess? Oh my, the sky's the limit with you! I could guess a million things and you've already done them all.... hmm... I have no idea. Looking forward to the surprise. :)

Could we have a fish please?
I know there are swimmers in your family - unfortunately the colors don't scream fish so I am going to guess a Horse to add to the "farm"

Jeanne said...

A puppy clown? No, a monkey clown?

Kepanie said...

How about a bird? This is a toughie to guess. But you are a toy genius and can't wait to see what you come up with in June.

ER and Fam said...

I vote fish too! Crabs, and seals, and fish oh my!

jane said...

I see lions and tigers and bears, Oh my!

A kangaroo with a pouch and a joey?
I would love to see one of those.

Can't wait to find out what it is.
Blessings

I think I know WHERE the toy will be featured, but it's just an assumption, ha,ha. Now, I'm thinking perhaps a penguin.

Chloe's brother?

Patricia said...

I'm guessing a Parrot?

rinebird said...

All of the yarn colors are on your S & C at the farm book except brown & black? a Racooon or chipmunk/a bear!

Kate (KnitsInClass) said...

Perhaps something with stripes? Or maybe a colorful bird?
Love one of the other poster's idea about a kangaroo and joey (that would be too cute!)

Rae Lynne said...

Perhaps a reversible toy or some kind of transportation? I'd love to see a truck or airplane or boat. :)

Regina said...

All I know is those colors are scrumptious together!

Jani said...

Hmm . . . I'm seeing a big, fat, lazy-summer bumblebee with a blue sweater & reddish trousers . . . but that's a bit far-fetched, I suppose. It's probably a farmer with blue overalls & red hair like Chloe's. :)

Suze said...

Judging from the colors, I would guess perhaps a tropical bird of some sort. Maybe??

My guess is a rooster. No farm is complete without one! His name could be "Crow"!

Zoo animals!

A toucan! Love the colors no matter what it is.

I'm hoping for a dinosaur!!! I have a little man who loves dinosaurs and I'm pretty sure you would design a delightful dino!

sorellaandcompany said...

Those colors look so bright and fun together...is it a toy car? Maybe a boat!

Lynn said...

A butterfly with stained-glass-effect wings?

barb said...

Those beautiful colors look like a Rooster, to me. It could also be a wonderful Tom Turkey. Can't wait to see the finished project.

I'm thinking a play mat for the farm. I see trees and feilds and grass and a dirt road.

Doris said...

Possible bird maybe? Hmmmmm!!

Kanani said...

How about a toucan? Those bright colors in firecracker and splash and firefly for the beak? Chipmunk and root beer for the body...so many choices! Can't wait to see what you come up with

Kim said...

Gorgeous colours! I'm guessing it's going to be a Red Robin with her nest full of Robin's Egg blue eggs. Any way you look at it, it's going to be fabulous whatever you decide! Love you, Susan!

Allyson said...

a butterfly

Jeannie D said...

I'm thinking a nest with eggs and a mother Robin with a gigantic yellow beak? :D (that's a lot of yellow yarn!!)

Barb said...

All of the other "Comment" suggestions are wonderful - I think any of those would be a great idea. If anyone can make a fabulous new toy, it would be you! I absolutely love the name of those yarn colors - Chipmunk? root beer? FANTASTIC!!!!!

I'm not sure we can wait until June however - how about another hint????

Katie said...

I know a few other people have made this guess, but I think my guess might be a bit more specific. I also see a butterfly, but a reversible butterfly that starts as a cocoon. Another reversible toy would be so cool.

MarieAnge said...

It brings two things to mind.

A farm play mat complete with fields, streams, flowers, roadways, etc...

A rooster

Looking forward to seeing what it is.

sumo said...

Someone guessed Chloe's brother and I'm hoping that one too. I would like to make the farm for my grandson and somehow I don't think he's going to want a "girl" running the show. Not that I couldn't make Chloe into a boy...but somehow it just doesn't seem right. lol

christine m. east of toronto said...

my guess is: A ROBIN!

Crystal said...

I am with a few other guessers and say a robin with a nest full of bright blue eggs. I can't wait to see what you come up with!
