The Yarn Lover's Guide to Hand Dyeing



Does anyone (reading this) have The Yarn Lover's Guide to Hand Dyeing: Beautiful Color and Simple Knits? I was flipping through it in the craft store on Sunday, and I keep thinking about it. I've never given much thought to hand-dyeing yarn, but it was really inspiring! It has so many photos and techniques and patterns and even interviews! I'd be curious to hear what people who actually hand-dye yarn think of this book. Maybe a google search is in order, hm?

I have it, it's not really worth buying. The projects are either super basic or ugly and the dyeing information isn't anything that you couldn't get from the internet for free.

I wouldn't recommend it.

Hi, I work for www.shopyarn.com. Part of my job is to search blogs to find the latest books and shops throughout the U.S.

On shopyarn.com we are going to add patterns and other knitting related books and would like reviews about them. I saw your blog and would like to ask permission to feature the following quote on our site.
