This month we looked at colours and using a colour wheel to help choose which colours to put together for Fair Isle. We each brought in various samples from out yarns and looked at suitable colour combinations. The general consensus was that a colour wheel might be a help but you still need to try out patterns because the proportion of each shade is almost as important as the colour. This was graphically demonstrated by the numerous experimental samples she brought to the meeting.
There are several web sites that have information on the colour wheel includint interactive ones where you can try out different colour ways. If you enter Colour Wheel into a search engine you should come up with several but here are two to start with.http://www.kissmyshadow.com/http://www.sessions.edu/ilu/ilu_1.asp
