Find Your Colors

Color can make a project, especially when knitting for yourself. Let artist Lisa Solomon and her new workbook A Field Guide To Color develop a more personal connection to color in your craft and life. Challenge yourself to pick up some paint and explore color theory through a personal discovery of a color wheel. Whether a dyer or a fiber artist, this book will allow you to understand colors more fully to make a more conscious choice when it comes to picking out hues for your next project.
