cey & i: of chairs and collections

you can look here IMG_2529cropthis is the chair

go to the website beside susan’s desk

at classic elite yarns.

as creative director,

her space fills quickly

with color cards,

various mood boards,


and nearly endless

ย 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.

i admit,

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.

chronicling the process of this collaboration from swatches to release.

  1. That’s a gorgeous palette. I’m looking forward to seeing what you do with it.

    The Bible verses you post are always so interesting. Thank you.

  2. thank you. i was glad that i had a strong idea of what colors i wanted before i arrived in susan’s office because once i say the yarns face to face i wanted to knit with almost every one!

    things i love: God, family & friends, knitting, music, long walks, disco balls…i try to include them all in the blog because they all had something to do with me being me.

  3. Beautiful yarn! I check here every day for news, as you know, so I’ll be watching to see what it becomes. ๐Ÿ™‚
    p.s. I began my rivi mitts today! They will be blue. ๐Ÿ™‚ I love twisted ribbing.

    • yeah for rivi mitts! i had mine on again this morning over gloves and then this afternoon (which warmed up a bit) on their own. what yarn are you using? i love them so much that i tend to do too much in them, so i intentionally steered clear of all but the pale blue green in the bottom row of the picture.

      all the cey yarns were great! i wanted to add more and more pieced to the collection so i could knit with them all. at this point i’m feeling a little spoiled to have so many good choices, but very, very happy.

      • I’m using Patons Classic Wool for mine, in a medium denim colour which goes with almost everything I own. ๐Ÿ™‚ I love blue! I’m just ready to do the gusset on the first one. It’s a great pattern and I love the look of them in the photos. They will be warm!!
