Inspired by Autumn Colors by Rachel
Hi everyone!  It has been so fun to receive feedback from all of the Colors of Cleveland subscribers as they open their September yarn packages!  I was absolutely thrilled with the way the yarn turned out thanks to the wonderful dying talents of Space Cadet!!  It has been exciting to collaborate with her on this project and it wouldn't have been the same without her.  I encourage you to visit her website! She has many exciting things  going on. It's also been a blast to connect with all my fellow co-workers here at River Colors.  It isn't too often we all have the opportunity to work together or share ideas, but embarking on the Colors of Cleveland project has given us just that. I am so grateful to be a part of a talented, creative and witty team!

Edgewater and Shoreway communities

Even though there are still going to be plenty of beautiful sunsets to check out this month here on the lake, this cool weather that blew in with the rain last night has me thinking about shopping for fall fashions and projects on my knitting wish list. So today I'm going to explore some of the charming and eclectic consignment shops and boutiques that are located right here in our Shoreway neighborhood.  Some of my favorites are Girl Next Door in Rocky River, Designer Consignor in Lakewood, and Vintage Love in Avon.  But I am going to start right her at River Colors to see what cool weather accessories I can knit to go with my fall wardrobe.....I think I'll start with the slouchy Superstar Hat, designed by Ella Rae.  I saw the sample here at work the other day and loved the contrast of coziness and bling, so I need this hat in my life!!

As much as I love the lake and our September neighborhood,  I can't wait to share October with you, so I will be out exploring that area as well as we move into Autumn.  So stay tuned for some clues and in the meantime, I encourage you all to explore and  find the beautiful colors around our city that inspire you!


I was so excited to get my first Cleveland Colors package! I have not been able to start rolling the yarn and knitting because the package was such a treat and I keep finding another person to share it with. The cool temperature this weekend would make a great time to roll the yarn and start knitting! I can't wait to see what other people do with their yarn.http://blog.rivercolors.com/feeds/posts/default?alt=rss
