Liven up your Fair Isle knitting!

Spend the day with Mary Jane, author of 200 Fair Isle Motifs: A Knitters Directory, exploring fresh new colorways. This course will introduce the basics of color theory and how to use its principles to guide your color choices. We will learn about the use of color over the years in traditional Fair Isle knitting and move beyond, developing our own personal color schemes. We’ll analyze how different color combinations can completely change how a motif looks. Knitting a simple stranded wristlet or fingerless glove will quickly illustrate new concepts.
