Maybe you're already familiar with using space-dyed, hand-painted, or rainbow-dyed yarns. You may have already tried mixing different fibers, colors, and textures in a single project. Now you're thinking how exciting it would be to dye your own yarns and not be limited to knitting just with what's available commercially. You can! With Elaine Eskesen at your elbow, sharing her years of experience, you'll soon be creating your own gorgeous and unique hand-dyed skeins using the fibers of your choice: wool, silk, alpaca, and more. No matter what your approach to design might be-bright and exuberant or quiet and subtle-Elaine encourages all who love beautiful fibers to unleash their personal sense of color. In Dyeing to Knit there's enough inspiration and brass-tacks practical advice for knitters, dyers, and aspiring dyers of all persuasions. Book jacket.
