Welcome Maniago! I think this is going to be fun. I still don't have my yarn, though. yikes. I've searched two LYS and also Michael's, Hobby Lobby, and Joann. Everything is either the wrong weight, or not enough yardage in the colorway I want, or just shy of the yardage I need, and I don't want to double my expense just to get another 10 or 15 yards of yarn.
I think I'm going to try to dye some yarn. I have 2 skeins of white fingering weight wool that I was gifted, and one of the LYS in town sell the same yarn, so I can buy one more skein and have plenty.
Of course, I've never dyed yarn before, but I've been playing with some Kool-Aid. Hopefully I'll be able to come up with something I like and get it ready before Monday. Any tips or suggestions?
