Clear guidance, excellent demonstration Review by Amy

Laura Bryant does a remarkable job in teaching color combination for a wide range of effects. The DVD was so engaging, I bought a set of Color Aid cards to work on recognizing color relationships so I can be more successful in combining yarn colors. Another reviewer thought no knitted garments were used as demos, but many were knit, with techniques demonstrated on Knitting Daily TV episodes. Ms Bryant's teaching method seems to be accessible to a broad range of artistic/fiber aficionados, from beginner to experienced. I love this DVD--even tell my fiber friends that I "took a color class with Laura Bryant, so I've learned a little more about color." ;-)

Good info, no knitting Review by Maurette Foster

Good info, well presented. She sorts a stash of yarn, as promised in the preview, and teaches you how to do it. Only complaint is that there were no knit examples, only woven examples. I would like to see how she moved from a yarn wrap to a knitted piece. Definitely recommend it.

A Knitter's Guide to Color with Laura Bryant (Download) Review by Roberta Cook

Laura's explanations and demonstrations of colour grading and how colours can alter depending on what they are placed with are fantastic. She has an enthusiastic and easy-to-listen-to delivery. After years of trying, this video has broken through the barriers and I feel I've finally got the concept and can see that the knowledge will help me with my watercolour attempts as well as knitting and felting. I bypassed the Guide when it was a postage-only DVD. Thank you Interweave for making it downloadable.
