Congratulations! You’ve made it to the end of these very detailed lessons!

So, thank you so much for sticking with me through all of this. I am so excited to have had this opportunity to share with you a lot of the knowledge and the experience and the experiments that I’ve done over the past many years. I’m excited, also, to see what you do with this yarn. I’m hoping that sharing these dye application techniques will help expand your imagination or encourage you to try things that you’ve never tried before. I’ve shown over a dozen different ways to apply dye to yarn or spinning fiber and I’m excited to see what you do with that information. What can you do to make that your own? How can you apply these techniques to what you’re already doing or how will change things moving forward?
