Inspiration

It is always exciting to see how a magazine editor or an independent designer will envision one of our yarns being used. Recently CEY yarns were featured in three different patterns in three new magazine issues.

First, we saw the Bartram Vest by Cassie Castillo in Interweave Knits Summer. Look how they've taken the natural, undyed shades of Mohawk Wool and set them in the great outdoors. What a perfect match!

Next up Interweave Crochet revealed the Lattice Lace Shrug by Lei Wilkins. The drape of Firefly is such a perfect fit with this flowing vest. They must have had Firefly's light-catching sheen in  mind, knowing that it would really pop when this piece is in motion.

Most recently, Veera Valimaki's Multi-Directional Cardigan was released in the Early Fall issue of Vogue Knitting. The softness of Inca Alpaca matches the softness of the setting, and is put to good use in this two color piece. There are so many possible color combinations. Would you choose a tone on tone combination or two colors with a stronger contrast?

As much as we are moved by the vision of the editors and designers on these magazine pages, it is the next step that is our favorite. Now you, the knitters and crocheters, will choose your colors and make the patterns your own. Seeing what you come up with inspires us the most.
