The Knitting Experience Book 3:
Color by Sally Melville.

Sally Melville's first 2 books were on The Knit Stitch and The Purl Stitch. Number 3 in the series is Color! And....if anyone knows anything about color, it's theories and it's uses, it's Sally Melville.

This third book is about twice the size of the first two. It has 40+ projects. Her constant coaching, friendly advice, and skills of wardrobe-building are beautifully written in this book, along with beautiful photographs of Greece.

There's a meditative page about "seeing color" where Sally talks about seasons of color, how age affects the color we choose, and even our moods can dictate a certain color. Very interesting...

 

The techniques in this book cover simple stripes, not-so-simple stripes, the 2-color tradition, knitting with panels, intarsia, and plaids. She goes into fixing common mistakes, also.

 

Sally goes into extensive review of the colorwheel, something every knitter needs to know.

 

I highly recommend this book as an addition to your knitting library.

 

Respectfully submitted,

Carol Hurt
