For my birthday last month I asked my husband to attend a cotton yarn dyeing class with me (my first attempt at dyeing) at our local yarn shop. We had a blast!! Now, being a professional artist, I knew my husband’s yarn would be way more sophisticated than mine – and he proved me right with muted grey tones and varying shades of purple that swirl into light pinks and ecru – beautiful! My peacock blue/sky blue/kelly green striped yarn came out wonderfully well so I’m quite happy. And yes, this is all for me . . .
