Colors that Climb
Colors That Climb is a unique class resulting from Lorilee’s personal research and skillful applications of color. Explore various ways that color can be added when contrast stitches climb vertically from round to round. These techniques do not inhibit the elasticity of the fabric. We’ll play with simple zigs and zags, colorful cables, lines between lace, and purl-only columns that look like caterpillars. After class apply the coloring techniques to existing patterns worked in the round.
Important Note: This workshop takes place at the Holiday Inn Express in Cardiff.
Level of Experience: Intermediate skill level. Experience required working in the round in a small (8 inch) circumference. Students must also be willing to work from a chart with assurance of instructor’s help.
Materials: Bring the needles you are comfortable using to work in the round in a small circumference: DPN’s, two circulars, or one 32 inch long circular for magic loop knitting. Choose a size or two sizes smaller than you normally use for working worsted weight wool- about a size US 5 to US 6, as we need snug stitches. Yarn will be provided. Bring a blunt tip tapestry needle.
Materials fee: $4 payable to instructor at workshop.
How to Register: Sign up at the January Guild meeting or send an email to Programs@SanDiegoKnitters.com. Be sure to include your name, the name of the workshop, your email address and a telephone number.
