Dyeing with Pigeonroof Studios

Last weekend was my last dyeing workshop session with Krista from Pigeonroof Studios.  I spent six Saturdays learning how to dye yarn and fiber with Krista, and it was such an incredible experience!

And isn’t the walk to her studio in Oakland super pretty (see above)?  Oakland has some incredibly charming neighborhoods.

I’ve completed about eleventy bazillion hours of business education and training, but not in my chosen art form.  Let me tell you .. totally worth it!

I always think it’s a great (and invaluable) idea to learn new techniques. What I learned from Krista has helped me know how to create complex colorways, something I could sometimes do very well, but maybe not consistently. Now I’m confident in my ability to create consistently unique colorways with many hues and shades.

Which is kinda important if you like yarn that is super variegated, with no pooling or striping.

I’m now adding yarn updates to both my Etsy shop and my own site each weekend, which includes … this weekend! Hope to see you there – I have a few totally one of a kind skeins that I think you’ll love.
