36 Hours Left!

There are 36 hours left until the end of the Dyepot Weekly Kickstarter Campaign.  Thank you all for your tremendous support for this new series of yarn dyeing videos!  If you haven't backed the project, there are still many rewards available.  These include custom dyed sock blanks, hand spun yarn or mini-skeins, sponsorship credit on videos, or even just the $1 cheer squad where you can give input into the content of the series and see sneak peeks.  Don't miss out on your chance to get some yarn that has been featured on the ChemKnits Tutorials YouTube channel!  

This also means that there are only 36 hours left until the first episode of Dyepot Weekly comes out!  All episodes of Dyepot Weekly will be available for free on the ChemKnits Tutorials YouTube channel.  Have you subscribed to the channel yet?  I tend to post the videos that come out here on the blog after a bit of a lag, so if you want to stay up to date with my latest dyeing experiments make sure you subscribe!

I've started doing more livestreams recently.  I know that many of you enjoy it when I spin yarn live, but I am also trying to find fun ways to dye yarn live.  This weekend on I Love Yarn Day, I handpainted some 100% worsted weight wool and some 75% superwash merino/25% wool sock yarn with three different colors of Wilton's Icing Color (Violet, Royal Blue and Black).  The only issue with dyeing yarn live (besides real life interruptions) is that you can't see the finished dry yarn at the end of the video.  In this live stream, I couldn't even unwrap the yarn because I needed to wait for it to cool.  

Therefore, I try to share a recap of the video so you can see the colors that we dyed.  What do you thin of this way of sharing dyeing videos?  Most Dyepot Weekly episodes will be pre-recorded and edited, but I hope to also include more live content from time to time.  Please let me know what you'd like to see!
