Knit Stars Season 6 Yarn Usage:
Through Jacqui Finks' workshop on her Heartstrings Project, you will learn a unique perspective on color by letting your emotions govern your design.
Instead of following a preselected color pattern, you will attach a color to an emotion and allow that process to guide you. By creating a beautiful knitted or crocheted shawl, you will learn how connecting color and emotion is a gentle pathway to the deep introspective work of self-observation, awareness, and self-acceptance. Your Heartstrings Project represents a very personal visual diary of your well-being: a loving yarn hug to remind you of your worth.
The "Heartstrings Shawl" is offered in either a knit or crochet version. Both versions are worked corner to corner, diagonally and bottom up, with asymmetrically pointed tips.
