Playing with color

Playing with color

I noticed that the Knitting Daily email included some talk about colorwork because of their new emag ColorKnits, so I've been playing around with some palettes in the chartmaker.

You can now save a chart as a copy, which is awesome, thank you Charles. So after you work very very hard on that Fair Isle chart or whatever, save it. Then open it again, give it a new name, and click Save as copy. Then change your colors for a brand new chart.

I also decided to write a few little articles on color theory (hey, why waste that fine arts' education, right?). Check out the first one, color theory basics part i.

Here are a few of the fair isle charts I was playing with. A new palette changes everything:
