Psynopsis Self-Knitted Cashmere Sweater and Dress Majestic Paris Underdress Zara Pumps
Life is being difficult right now with my mind circling around the question how to stay a free-range chicken in a battery dominated world. Maybe I've become too accustomed to the good life?
Material worries can't stop me knitting new dresses and spidery sweaters. What did Steve Jobs say... 'Stay hungry and foolish.' In cashmere… that might just work for me. ♥ ♥ ♥

oh you look absolutely stunning here! but - sorry, i'm curious - are you facing any kind of exciting changes (moving to another place or anything)? loved your free-range chicken comparison :)

Fashion, Art and other fancies said...

I feel the way you are now daily. Free range chickens are a rare breed indeed. Do continue knitting. It's creative and does wonders for the mind.xx

SabinePsynopsis said...

FA&oF - I'll definitely continue with the knitting. It's wonderful... and I can make my own clothes :)

Kazuko - I really don't know yet. It's more on a professional level. Chatty me will keep you updated (as much is diplomatically possible). X

I love the dress - so stunning, and knitting sounds like a good way to keep yourself busy.

I do hope everything sorts itself out soon for you.

The Foolish Aesthete said...

I can't believe you knitted these. Actually, I CAN believe it! Gorgeous spidery knits on the sweater and the forestry ... And the Jobs quote was one of the ones that really sunk into me last week the day he passed. xx

the nyanzi report said...

wonderful creations.

Veshoevius said...

I think I know exactly what you mean! Why don't I ever look this stylish when I go walking through woodlands? (Oh wait - I don't live near any woodlands...)

Kavery said...

Fantastic creation. A free range life sounds interesting so long as it's financially sound too! The challenge is finding both

I do have a serious problem with staying hungry. Though staying foolish is a natural state of being for me. Love the two shots.


And keep up the knitting. I wish i could do that.

Really amazing photographs.
Xoxo

Maddy said...

Beautiful photos once again, Sabine! I feel your frustration, that's why I've been MIA. But promise to make time for what makes you happy, ok? :) Miss you!

Vanessa, Take only Memories said...

These photos are wonderful!

You should look at it from the other side: It is amazing that you can make your own clothes! They are unique and wonderful!

polka dot said...

Feel for you, Sabine. It's a dog eat free range chicken world out there!

Like FA&oF said, I do feel that the need to create is so inherent in us: once our basic needs are met (food, clothing, shelter - in some cases, reproduction) the next thing is 'Right! What can I create?

It sounds like you need to focus on the basic few first, but that shouldn't stop you from knitting! Yesterday I met with a friend who I met streetshooting, a recent knitwear designer - I'd love to put her in touch with you. These designs are absolutely beautiful - I'll be doing a post soon with a similar look, using a Mark Fast dress over something lighter - really similar, uncanny.

Okay, I'll shut up now. I just missed not just your smiling face, but your lilting voice, and your perspective on life. These are beautiful photos, looking at you in the forest is giving me inspiration to go forth and write my novel!

big hug, good luck
jill xoxo

Noelle Chantal said...

What a lovely setting and mood. I love the layers you wore here. I hope everything is ok with you! Have a great week! Keep on knitting! :)

WeShop said...

That sweater looks incredible - you're very talented. xx

Rosalind said...

Running Free Range while 'hungry and foolish in cashmere' sounds highly inspiring, even if it's in the teeth of material concerns.
Love how illuminated you are in that first image.

Zarna said...

"stay hungry and foolish" - i love that!

also, the lighting in these shots is really beautiful!

Sarah @ Pencil Skirts and Lattes said...

Love the cashmere sweater!

Cindy Whitehead said...

OK loving the "free range chicken" sentence.But I know exactly what you mean - I often wonder if perhaps living a much more simple life would be better for me? But then I love what I love (fashion, dinners out etc) It's a struggle sometimes on which road to take in this dilemma. Hope things are OK with you. Keep us updated! xo

P.S. Sometime I think I should move to a small town in middle America where you just work, spend time w/family and no one even knows about "fashion" how inexpensive would that life be? (-:

Ioana Liliana said...

This is beyond perfect. Not only do I love your entire look, but the way that dress falls . . and the light. All in all you're created an incredible atmosphere here. As always :)

Pearl Westwood said...

Know exactly how you are feeling right now! x

Manasi said...

These are amazing! I can barely manage a knit-in-the-round raglan.

Soccer Mom Style said...

Sabine, I want tshirt that says Stay Hungry, Stay Foolish. I think that maybe my favorite sayings right now. RIP Steve Jobs
His Stanford grad. speech so inspirational. He also says to never settle, have courage to follow your intuition. I know, I know, easier said than done.
Keep clucking! I think success is not becoming famous or rich. Success is having courage to do what you love doing (not my idea, read it somewhere)
LOVE the dress! You're so talented.
