Description: If you've got a few (or many) skeins of lovely handpainted yarn, but don't know what to do with them, this class is for you! Jennifer, a designer of hand dyed yarns, will show & teach the most spectacular ways to show off your special skeins. This class covers fearless color combining, innovative ways to work with 2+ skeins of handpainted yarns, color theory, and more. We will focus on the creation of socks, shawls, & scarves.
 
Participants will learn how to visualize how a handpainted, multi-color skein will knit up, how to work with long & short color repeats, & explore the stitches that avoid unsightly color pooling. We'll practice learning several stitch patterns & their variations that show off multi-colored yarn, including chevron; linen stitch; mitered square; feather & fan. You'll leave with beautiful illustrations of handpaints, & confidence & resources to create lovely pieces on your own! This is an intermediate class, intended for students who are relatively proficient knitters.

Skill Level: Participants should be able to knit, purl, yarn over, ssk, k2tog, kfb, double decrease.

Homework:  None

Tools Needed: Bring a beloved skein or two of handpainted fingering weight yarn, ready to knit (wound into a ball or cake); straight or double point needles (with point protectors), sizes 4, 5, 6.  Participants will receive: Handouts with stitch patterns.
