CAN YOU HEAR YOUR DREAMER'S INNER VOICE?
"What will happen if I pair up this fiber with this one?"
"I bet if I did this, I would get some interesting results!"
"Let's see how this colorway combination turns out!"
Have you ever looked at your mountain-high stash of yarn and pondered all of the possibilities of creation that you could draw from it? Do you find yourself wanting to dive more deeply into expressing your colorful, eccentric and unique self through the magic of yarn?
Are you a Dreamer Fibre Muse at heart? Do you love playing with color, texture, fiber, mixing things up to produce new and outlandish results?
In this special challenge, we are going to dive deep into the psyche of the Dreamer Fibre Muse and manifest her magic of self-expression through exploring the interplay of color, fiber and texture, to inspire and delight her sensibilities and open our yarn world up to new methods and ways of self-expression.
This challenge is for you if yoU...
... love playing with color, fiber and texture
... are open to experimenting and trying unconventional things
... want to harness the power of the Dreamer Fibre Muse so you can create with intention for transformational impact
... want to be a part of community + movement of powerful + magical makers where we believe that knitting has power + impact.
The challenge runs from February 19th to February 23rd.
How will this challenge play out? Over the course of 5-days, each day we will knit up a simple stockinette swatch. Think of it as your canvas, and you are the painter. On this canvas, we will experiment and play with different types of "paint brushes" to produce beautiful paintings and inspire your inner Dreamer Fibre Muse and give her new creative wings.
Monday: Paintbrush #1
Tuesday: Paintbrush #2
Wednesday: Paintbrush #3
Thursday: Paintbrush #4
Friday: Bringing it all together
