One of my hobbies related to knitting is dyeing the yarn I use to knit. It’s lots of fun! I use mainly food grade dyes, because they are easier to clean up!
In correlation to that, Dharma Trading Company has a 10% off sale on their blank yarns for dyeing until 10/15.
I love Laura Nelkin! I’ve knit many, MANY of her designs. I’ve been a member of her M-Club for 2 years now. (Unfortunately, I’m not going to be able to join her this coming year and that makes me sad 🙁 )
But she just put a tutorial together on how to do Long Gradient yarn dyeing at home on her blog and I just wanted to share with everyone one. I’m going to attempt to do one of these when I’m feeling better (I absolutely hate getting bronchitis! It knocks me on my butt for several weeks!)
Thanks to The Craftsy Blog for posting this!
I know my mother goes through these sheets like laundry detergent! And they’re not that cheap, but they are worth it. But anyway to cut costs are welcome, right? They can be project savers! And we all know all the effort we put into projects that we will do a lot to prevent them from being ruined!
The Stash and Dash pattern by Annie is free for a limited time (October 1, 2015, I believe!). They also sellers finishing kits (one in nickel, and one in antique brass) for $14.95. They include everything you need, other than the fabrics (which everyone wants to pick their own anyway!), and also you get to choose your zipper color from 48 different colors to coordinate with your fabric choices.
