    What a great read!! Once I opened my eyes a few years ago to combine yarns in weights & colors, it has really helped me experiment more giving me more enjoyment in the craft.

    This was helpful and reassuring. Colorwork is on my 2022 knitting goals.

    Thank you for this jolt of inspiration! I have lots of bits and bobs of luscious color to play around with and your patterns are just the incentive I need to get going.
