Retreat Preview--Day 4

Knitting evens us out! We've explored dyeing and spinning, now we explore knitting with what we've created so far. Meeting again at 9am we'll go over the day's plan with coffee/tea. Our knitting today centers around sampling and swatching. Making plans for future color work projects. These samples and the notes from them really do belong in a Spinner's notebook, but we will also be playing with fun ideas to wear the samples we create. We'll be exploring both stranded knitting techniques and intarsia. We'll look at tips and strategies and at various books to help you once you leave the retreat. This is also the day to look briefly at color theory (that could be a retreat unto itself). Mainly what do you like to put together and exploring putting colors together you can't imagine. This will be another day full of color! We'll enjoy a later lunch today as we wind up our talks. After we will make sure you have time to finish in any area we've visited during the weekend. Saying goodbye will be hard, but you'll be ready to play with so many new ideas and tools in your creative kit by the end.

You'll find the complete overview and cost in this post.
