Stranded Color: Just Beyond the Basics with Beth Whiteside
Interested in color techniques? Stranded color (of which Fair Isle is a subgroup) is one of the classics. We're going to go over and just beyond the basics, working in the round with a steek you'll cut and later secure. Our practice project can be turned into a coffee pot cosy, neck warmer, yoga mat holderlots of possibilities! In addition to covering several ways to secure a steek, the class touches on traditional garment construction, color, and patterns. Note: It covers the same basic ground as the Market Session of the same name, then expands on that material.

100 yds each of 2 colors #4 (worsted weight) wool (no acrylic) and small amounts of #4 (worsted-weight) wool in contrasting colors, 16" circular needle (measured tip to tip) appropriate for yarn (approx 4.25-4.5mm/US6-US 7), crochet hook 2 sizes smaller than knitting needles.

Sharp scissors, notebook, pen or pencil with an eraser, stitch markers, blunt tapestry needles (large and small), flexible tape measure, small calculator, and needles & crochet hooks of various sizes.

Homework
