Dye Class with Joe Cole!

This year’s featured dyeing class at The Knitter’s Edge is called “Speckle It !” and hopefully by the title you can guess what you’ll be doing. That’s right, we’ll be doing one of the many speckling dye methods. You’ll also get the option to do a lite single color over- dye.
There will be 2 sessions on Saturday June 15. 10 – 12pm & 1 – 3pm.
Class cost is $25, which includes materials needed for dyeing. Does not include yarn. Class fee covers the dyeing of 1 skein. Additional skeins may be dyed for an additional fee of $5 per skein.
The Knitter’s edge has the undyed yarn and sock blanks (superwash only for this method) for sale at the shop.
Please wear something comfortable that you do not mind getting ruined. This method of speckling can get messy and you might get dye on clothing.
