CTA1: Color Theory Adventure!

Join Lindsay and Karen for an all day adventure exploring the world of color!

We'll start our day by learning all about color with Karen. After the lecture, we'll put your newfound skills to use by shopping and picking three colors of yarn to make the KOKO scarf/wrap. After a lunch break (during which we will make sure your yarn is wound and ready for you!), you'll cast on with Lindsay and learn the stitches necessary to make the unique fabric of this cool piece. Read on for more details!
