November Minnesota Knitters’ Guild Meeting
November 15, 2022 @ 6:30 pm - 9:00 pm
Developing Color Confidence with Janine Bajus
I have been teaching knitters around the world how to develop their own personal Fair Isle designs for 18 years—Fair Isle knitting is my passion, so much so that I wrote a book entitled The Joy of Color: Fair Isle Knitting Your Way. The most common thing I hear students say about themselves is, “I’m no good with color.” Few people are born with confidence in this area—but there are ways to develop confidence in your ability to choose colors. In this talk I offer information and simple exercises to help you confidently make color choices that please you!
Janine Bajus, a.k.a. the Feral Knitter, has been fascinated by color and pattern and how they collide in Fair Isle knitting since she was given a classic yoke sweater in high school. She teaches the joys of expressing yourself through Fair Isle design around the country at Stitches events, Sievers School of Fiber Arts, guild retreats, and virtually, and she leads fiber tours around the world. Her book, The Joy of Color: Fair Isle Knitting Your Way, is a guide to creating your own unique garments. She knits, spins, gardens, cooks, and writes in Berkeley, California. See her designs at feralknitter.com; see what she’s obsessed with on Instagram @janinebajus.
The meeting will open at 6:30 with a trunk show by Purl Talk.
