Knitter's Review
March 8, 2012

With Alice Starmore's books back in print and Jared Flood's Brooklyn Tweed yarns providing a mouth-watering palette, everything's in place for a color renaissance. Some would argue colorwork never went away in the first place.

When you use multiple colors within a project, you have two choices. Either you use the colors the designer chose for you, or you strike out on your own. We weren't all born with an equal gift for putting colors together.

Books and wheels teach us color theory, but sometimes we just want a simple gadget to get us on the right path. I've found one. Gail Callahan's Color Grid is no bigger than a take-out menu and costs less than a sandwich.

This Weekend in Indiana
This Thursday to Sunday, the Jay County Fairgrounds in Portland, Indiana, host the Jay County Fiber Fest and Spin-In. The event has all great festival trappings, from sheep shearings and border collie demonstrations to classes, vendors, and even a benefit soup supper to support the Helping Hands Food Bank.

In the Forums: The Day We Met
A lovely little conversation is going on right now about the KR Forums themselves. It began when Margaret asked the question, how did you find the forums, and when? I'd love to read your answer.

Happy knitting, and I'll see you in the Forums,
