Color Work Fun!

Congratulations to Katie K, who won a copy of The Sock Report in our haiku contest. Here's her haiku:

A ball of sock yarn Rolls off to college as it Ravels by degrees

We had a lot of fun reading all of the entries. Thank you to all who contributed a haiku. Thanks also go to my daughters for selecting the winner.

Color work has always been a favorite of mine. From playing with yarns and planning the colors, to watching the pattern grow as I knit, to wearing those extra warm finished projects, it is a pure joy. A lot of knitters seem to be intimidated by stranded color work. I like to spread the  joy by teaching classes on the subject and showing people how much fun color work can actually be. It is always a pleasure to watch as the fun of working with colors clicks with the students in those classes. I don't have any color work classes scheduled right now, but you can learn a lot from online sources:

Below are four mitten patterns that I've designed over the years using color work. I hope you'll have as much fun to knitting them as I did designing them. All four of these patterns are now available as a bundle.

Oooh, what a nice bundle. I spy lots of gifts there for the gift giving season.

Love all the patterns!

Thank you for posting such informative and helpful links. It's on my bucket list and I've been hoping to tackle color work soon.

Yay for the haiku contest, and congratulations to Katie!

Thanks for the colorwork links. I love the patterns (no surprise).

I do love colorwork. Why don't I do more? Great mittens.

Love the mittens. They are so pretty and great for this season.
