Yarn Alchemy: Mastering the Art of Selecting Perfect Fibers & Colors

Class Level: All Levels Welcome

Class Description: Embark on a journey with Joji as she guides you in choosing the ideal yarns for your knitting projects. In this workshop, we'll unravel the mysteries of yarn selection, empowering you to make informed choices that will make your projects look, feel and fit better. The best part? These choices will most probably come from your own stash!

We'll delve into the following key aspects:

• Understanding Yarn Textures: • Explore the diverse textures of yarn, unraveling the secrets of fuzzy, draped, textured, and plied fibers. Gain the ability to identify similar textures and discern the impact of texture matching or mismatching on your projects.

• Decoding Yarn Weight: • Master the skill of identifying yarn thickness, giving you the confidence to assess yarn quantities and suitability for different projects. Learn how to match yarn weights to project requirements seamlessly.

• Navigating Ravelry's Database: • Harness the expansive power of Ravelry to find inspiration tailored to your project needs. Navigate the database effectively to discover yarn choices that align with your vision and available yardage.

• Harmonizing Colors: • Unlock the secrets of color combination, from toning down vibrant hues to revitalizing dull shades. Acquire techniques for creating balanced and visually appealing color palettes that enhance your project's overall aesthetic. You'll leave the virtual classroom full of ideas and renewed appreciation for your beloved stash.

Supplies to Have on Hand (suggested, but not mandatory): While the following items are not essential, having them in front of you can enhance your learning experience:

*Color Wheel
*A ruler with inch notation or WPI gauge

Those who select the in person watch party will have access to shop for lots of new yarn before and after the Zoom.
