Building in Color: Short Rows and Knit Below

Date(s) - Sat, August 29, 2015
2:00 pm - 4:00 pm

Over The Rainbow Yarn

The last Saturday of each month is still devoted to skill building.  Using Michelle Hunter’s book, Building Blocks, we spent the first 6 months of 2015 learning about and building skills with textures.

Now we’re ready to move on to spend the next 6 months doing the same with color, using Michelle Hunter’s second book, Building With Color, as our guide.

There are 10 color work panels covered in the book, so we’ll cover the techniques for two panels per month from July through October.  We’ll cover 1 panels per month in November and December.  When you’ve finished, you have all the makings of a beautiful colorwork throw.
