Date & Time
Sunday, March 26, 2017, 2:00 PM - 5:00 PM
If we think of a knit stitch as a pixel, we realize that knitting is the perfect vehicle for color blending. Take the next color step with Laura and learn how to select colors to maximize optical mixture, creating lovely shading and color blending. Learn to work your own magic on a large group of colors, controlling and selecting just the right ones for a Monet’s garden of yarn. Simple swatches will provide a hands-on experience. You will achieve a greater sense of confidence about selecting colors, and will leave with a deeper understanding of Laura’s favorite axiom: You don’t get WOW by doing the expected!
