Dyeing to Knit: How to Use--and Create Your Own--Beautiful Hand-dyed Yarns
by Elaine Eskesen

Why be limited to the color selections available at your local yarn shop? Dyeing to Knit: How to Use--and Create Your Own--Beautiful Hand-dyed Yarns provides detailed instructions to fashion your own rainbow of yarn colors. But this is not just a simple "how to" book. Here you will find explanations on all facets of yarn dyeing - including the color wheel, harmonies and contrasts, dyeing equipment, experimental techniques, and safety considerations.

And now that you have a huge stash of hand dyed yarn, what to do with it? Simply turn to "Chapter Four: The Design Phase" and enjoy the stories of knitting inspiration. The Daily Knitter editors have already planned a Chicago Art Institute field trip to scope out color combinations for future dyeing projects.
