A Peak into a Yarn Dyer's Kitchen

Tuesday was a cold and rainy day ... perfect for finishing up a yarn order.  I'll be hand delivering it next week when we are in Michigan for a family wedding.  It's going to a lovely yarn shop in Hudsonville, MI called Painted Trillium Designs.

Dye stock solutions at the ready.  

Where all the magic happens!

I love my dye pot - it is so roomy and deep. =)  My friend Sue gave it to me when she was de-cluttering.  Her trash became my treasure.  Do you see the missing knob on the stove?  I take them all off but the one I'm using so that I don't accidently turn on the wrong burner.  Yikes!  What a mess that would make!

Yarn cooling in the sink.  

I rinse it well with water and hair conditioner.  That's my "secret" ingredient for making the yarn smell so nice.

Here I am!  Jill of all trades, master of none.  LoL

Thank you for sharing. I too dye threads (fine for crocheting and tatting) but the word best is painting.

I too am a person of many crafts but master in none.
