With Alice Starmore's books back in print and Jared Flood's Brooklyn Tweed yarns providing a mouth-watering palette, everything's in place for a color renaissance. Some would argue colorwork never went away in the first place.
When you use multiple colors within a project, you have two choices. Either you use the colors the designer chose for you, or you strike out on your own. We weren't all born with an equal gift for putting colors together.
Books and wheels teach us color theory, but sometimes we just want a simple gadget to get us on the right path. I've found one. Gail Callahan's Color Grid is no bigger than a take-out menu and costs less than a sandwich.
