So, you walk into a yarn shop and you’re presented with an amazing wall display of beautiful yarns in every possible colour… overwhelming, isn’t it? The hardest thing to decide when you’re starting a new knitting project or choosing yarns in a shop is… what colour do I pick?
What are we afraid of? We’re worried we’ll choose a colour that will look bad on us or make us feel silly when we wear it or we aren’t sure which colours go with which. Knitting takes a big investment of time, money, and energy, so there is added pressure to choose the “right” colours.
Whether you’ve been knitting and working with colour for years or just getting started, this mini-workshop will walk you through the basics of working with colour and help you feel more confident about creating your own palettes and colour combinations for your projects. In our time together, we will play and combine different colours based on a variety of inspirations and then find different ways to knit them together to produce completely unique results.
My hope is that you will be inspired to continue the lifelong journey in exploring colour and the many ways we can use it in our crafts. My goal is to walk you through that fear and trepidation and replace it with confidence and joy. Join me to learn about and play with colour!
