Last spring Beth took a 2-day color class from me at Churchmouse Yarns & Teas on Bainbridge Island, WA. She just sent some photos of her completed swatch cap, knit using the Raven Cap pattern that is part of the class handout!
You can see her source of inspiration on the table. The color in this photo is a little off, looking a little too mustardy--this shot of the cap's inside shows them a little better (plus, great idea for doubling the ear area with a deep deep hem!).
Thanks for sending me these photos, Beth!
If you are interested in exploring personalized color in Fair Isle-type stranded knitting, I'll be teaching the 3-day Design Your Own Fair Isle workshop at my home in Berkeley, CA two times in 2012: August 17-19 and September 7-9. These are intimate classes because only 6 people at a time will fit at my table--the August class is already half full! Here's a link to more information about these workshops.
