To Dye For

I have fallen down the rabbit hole.  What else can I learn?  What else can I make or create?  Dying….I must say its a natural progression when you become a spinner…right? RIGHT!  I would love to add that skill to my fiber world so as  way to support my local LYS at  SIFU DESIGN CENTER.

The Dying Class included Natural Dying, Kool Aid and Acid Dyes.  First up Natural dyes using beautiful Marigolds.

I really enjoyed my self and thought the class was great.  If you are interested in Dying there are several resources out there  your LYS, Knitty.com, Hand dying Yarn and Fleece and YouTube.

I will put what I learned into good use this weekend!  See you in the rabbit hole…..
