beside susan’s desk
as creative director,
her space fills quickly
with color cards,
various mood boards,
and nearly endless
fresh design possibilities.
to begin something new,
one morning just over a week ago
this lemony vintage chair was filled with, well, me.
we talked of ideas and angles, palettes and themes, and of course, yarns.
by the time i had to drag myself away to get the kids off the bus,
we had finalized everything down to the color choices
(ie: all the colors warming the chair above)
for an indie collection of my new ideas
that cey and i are collaborating on.
that as the stack of colors grew,
i began to feel a bit giddy with the excitement of it all.
to be given such freedom of choice and professional support
was moving to the creative side of me in a way that i find hard to describe.
what i can say clearly, is that the practical side of me went
right home and eagerly cast on for the first sweater.
(this is to be an ongoing series of posts
chronicling the process of this collaboration from swatches to release.
