Over on my YouTube channel, I’m hosting a Dye with Me series, where I’m dyeing up a fade kit. In each video, I’m dyeing one skein and bringing you along for the ride. You can then comment on the video or use the hashtag to participate on Instagram. You can participate by letting me know what the skeins should look like. I think it’s been a lot of fun and everyone seems to be enjoying it. It’s a great way to really break down what goes into dyeing yarn.
When I originally kicked off the series, I asked what people wanted in the skein. There were a few comments about pinks and greens as well as an overall fall theme. I let some ideas flow through my head and came up with this skein…
Overall, I’m pretty proud of this skein. I think it came out beautiful and really hit the fall theme well while incorporating pinks and greens. It also will set us up nicely for a full fade kit by having a few different color options.
Now that this skein is finished, it’s time to decide what to do next. Over in the video, I talk about some options, but I most importantly want to hear from you! What do you like about this skein? What don’t you like? What do you want to see next? Feel free to comment here, but if you comment over on YouTube, you’ll be entered for a giveaway (yes, a giveaway!). The entries on YouTube and Instagram will count.
Did you say giveaway? Yes, I did! 1 lucky winner will be receiving the kit that I dye throughout the series. Can’t wait? The kits are listed for sale now and are discounted for 20% off until the next video posts. Once that happens, it will go down to 10%, so don’t wait.
Fade kits are really fun to dye because it really lets you explore color. When I dye my gradients, I change the tone of the color from one skein to the next. In a fade kit, I can bring in new colors and see how they play off each other. It’s been a real test for me as a dyer and… I think, a good learning experience for the viewers.
I’d love to have you participate! If you haven’t already, head over to the video and check it out.
