"Hand-dyed yarns are so sensuous, with their custom hues and rich blends of colors, that every knitter longs to work with them. But once we've brought home some of those precious skeins, what next? In Dyeing to Knit, designer and dyer Elaine Eskesen demystifies hand-dyed yarns by providing straightforward how-to information both for using the yarns and dyeing your own, and encouraging you to trust your own creative instincts. Includes instructions for 21 patterns, from scarves to sweaters and hats to mittens." --From Publisher
