The best thing that helped me was the show that aired on Knitty Gritty
I did find this
website on using the Easter egg dyes
is another one..
hrmm.. I can not find the one I read.. she showed you step by step.. put saran wrap down on the table .. and how to add the dye..and then she showed you how to roll it up and put it in the heat... I'll keep looking for it..
One thing you might want to do is play around with the colors with scarps first.. Most of the time I think I know what color/colors I should have in the end.. and sometimes I do and sometimes I'm like
oh and when you dye and dry it.. sometimes I think that is the ickiest stuff but then when I wind it into a cake it changes and is pretty.. I wanna get a niddy noddy next so I can take pictures of pretty skeins...
this morning I tried to wrap my mom's dyed yarn around my dh's hands it didn't work.. she is getting a nice cake of yarn instead...
ETA: here it is
.. the one I thought was handy
