Socks to Dye For October 16, 2006

Oh I am just so excited! In honor of Socktoberfest (and my increasing jealousy at the sight of everyone’s gorgeous colorways) I have just registered for a class at the Fine Line.

My obsession with articles on Kool-Aid dying might actually become useful now! Oh waily waily waily… how much larger will the stash grow once I start dying my own yarns? Mwa ha ha ha ha!


Instructor: Dagmar Klos

This is for the knitter who wants customdyed, multi-colored sock yarn, but is unfamiliar with the dyeing process. Come and see how fun and easy this can be. We will be “painting” the colors onto skeins of yarn. Each knitter will bring her/his own wool(or wool blend) yarn for one or two projects to be dyed with acid dyes. Dye two colors or more. By the end of the workshop, yarn will be dyed and ready for knitting that special project that will be the envy of other knitters. Class is open to all levels.
