View Full Version : Easy Dyeing Tip with Knitting Machine

I just got the Fall 2006 issue of Spin-Off magazine, and it has the COOLEST article about dyeing yarn.

Here's what you do: You knit all your spun yarn with a knitting machine to make a big rectangle, then you dye stripes on the finished fabric.

Then, when you are completely satisfied with it, you can unravel it, and make anything you want. Easy Self-Striping yarn!

I am really excited about trying this. I got a knitting machine at a thrift store about 2 years ago, and it's just been sitting around. Now, I can put it to work!

I liked that article too. I don't own a machine and the one I tried at a demo was finicky. So, I never was motivated into getting one. I'm kindda entertaining the idea now. I loved the yarn made in the article though.

I have an old Bond Knitting Machine (the precursor to the Incredible Sweater Machine). I found it at a thrift store for 20 bucks!
