After two roller coaster years, I have great hopes for 2022. Well, I have to admit, I am an optimist. I always have high hopes for the new year and the new month and even the new week.
I love new beginnings. I love dreaming about new projects and new writing and new podcasts. I know that many of you have that same love of beginnings. I know because it is so exciting to pick out yarn and a pattern and casting on that new project. I know that feeling of great expectations at the start of a project.
These winter months are usually pretty quiet around here. These are times that I can take a new class and learn some new skills. If you are like me and want to learn new dyeing skills, if you’ve always wanted to try dyeing. I have 2 great classes available to you online. You can learn to dye yarn specifically dyeing for self striping socks here. OR you can learn to dye roving for spinning or felting here. Each class is a 4 week, entirely self guided class. You can watch the videos at your leisure. There are 4 modules that you have up to 1 year to complete.
I love to learn new things. Have you always wanted to learn how to dye or how to spin or how to knit socks two at a time? During this time of social distancing, I’ve turned my popular dyeing classes into an online course. And because I have the luxury of time, I’ve added a lot of extra lessons that are available only in the online class.
My online classes are rich with lessons that will develop your dyeing skills and also your color confidence. You will be able to tune in at a time that makes sense to you. You can view and review the lessons as many times as you wish. But you aren’t doing this completely in a vacuum, there are weekly Q&A sessions and a discussion board to communicate with me and other students in the class. You will end up with colorful skeins that you can use to knit socks, shawls or anything really.
The next 4 week Dyeability class will be starting on April 5th. This is Dyeability 1: Self Striping Yarn for Socks or Shawls. Click here to find out more about it. The class is usually $99. But, I am currently offering a $20 discount with the coupon code iheartyarn. Sign up and and gather your materials and we will have a great time dyeing yarn in April!!
