I got the dyeing bug!

I really wanted to find out more about what happens to yarn between the animals and my needles and well, I thought I'd have some fun too... so I booked myself onto one of Alice Yu's Dye-I-Y workshops. One word - Brilliant. It was so much FUN. I learnt loads about yarn and dyeing, I met some really nice people, and I came home with some really beautiful yarn - that I dyed myself, under Alice's guidance and with her beautifully mixed colours. I bought this book - Hand Dyeing, which seems really clear and I feel pretty confident about having a go at home soon.

Here are some pics of the Socktopus Sokkusu Original I dyed myself at the workshop:
