After my book, Hand Dyeing Yarn and Fleece, was published by Storey, many people remarked that its simplicity and straight forward approach resonated with them. Since its publication I have been working on a project to bring the color portion of the book to the marketplace, as a free standing tool, for learning how to choose and use color. It is now available for sale. Here is a simple demonstration of how it works. Imagine you are wrapping a gift. Using the template, select the major colors of the paper. Place the circles over these colors. Now select the color in the rectangle as a ribbon or card for the spark. The Color Grid is available in my Etsy shop and some local yarn shops, fabric and quilting stores, and garden centers. It can also be purchased directly from me via email (kangaroodyer@kangaroodyer.com. Retail cost is $7.95 plus $3.50 shipping and handling (1-4 Colorgrids, mailed together cost $3.50). Massachusetts residents require a sales tax of 6.25% ($.50). Wholesale inquires are welcomed.
