Know Your Colors, Know Your Self with Steven Berg
What do your knits and color choices say about you? Longtime knitter and professional yarn whisperer Steven Berg will guide you through a quiz that will show you which colors truly represent you. Explore techniques to create gradients using your colors and experiment with methods of combining colors to their greatest effect. Bring your favorite hand-knit (or crochet) and share it with Steven for a peek into your personal fiber future—he knows all, sees all, tells all!
__ An open mind
__ A pen or pencil and a notebook or design sketchbook to keep notes
__ Small amounts of yarn in a variety of colors, including a fingering weight and a lace weight each in different fibers like mohair and silk to be combined into a heavier weight, as well as a chunky weight. (Yarns should be wound prior to class so we can begin immediately. More yarns can be added during class.) Choose a color palette when bringing your stash but include one unexpected color.
__ A variety of needle sizes from 4mm/US6 to 10mm/US15. Bring a good selection or an interchangeable set.
__ A work-in-progress or finished project for show and tell. (The desire to be admired is not required—but it is recommended!)
