CTSB: Choose Your Own Adventure Sweater WORKSHOP!

In this engaging and hands-on workshop, you will dive deep into the principles of color, using the Strange Brew sweater pattern (find the pattern on Ravelry here) as your canvas for creative expression. Whether you're a seasoned knitter looking to elevate your craft or a beginner eager to explore the world of color through knitting, this experience offers a unique and creative journey. Join us in unraveling the secrets of knitwear color theory and craft sweaters that tell your story in vibrant, captivating hues.
