Hi there,
Just thought you might like to stop over and see my adventure in dyeing self striping sock yarn. It’s fairly easy… but make sure your yarn is tangle free before you start!

For a moment there, I thought that those were wasabi samples…yum! Very colorful and spicy even if they’re not wasabi! ; )
