All color is relative: Amy Hendrix visits ImagiKnit

Amy Hendrix Visits

Amy Hendrix, the creative mind behind Madeline Tosh, stopped by for a color theory workshop this weekend. We learned some basic principles of color theory, and then used those principles to better mix and match colors for our knitting projects.

The first half of the class was spent learning some of the history of color, and how it has been used and created throughout. We learned many of the terms we could use to describe colors such as hue and saturation.

The second half of the class we got down to business learning what made a good color combination, how to match our own complexions, and how to translate that into our knitting projects.

Thanks again Amy! We had a great time!

Malabrigo March

Malabrigo March!

This is the kind of March madness I can get excited about! Who doesn’t love a little Malabrigo in their lives? From super chunky Rasta to super thin Lace we have many Malabrigo yarns to delight the senses.

You won’t be disappointed by Superfine Merino. This is a light sport weight yarn made from the finest merino wool available in Uruguay. It has a 14.5 micron count, which puts it in range of the finest animal hair wools. This time the hanks are twice as big (100 grams and 336 yards), but just as luxurious. We have a mix of new and old colorways. We are told this is a limited quantity yarn and can’t be produced again until next year. This yarn is available only at ImagiKnit. Stop by our shop in San Francisco or check it out online.

What will you make with Malabrigo this March?
