Want to Learn How to Dye Yarn?

If you are interested in participating in the swap but have never dyed yarn before, have no fear! We have plenty of links to get you started. Check out the list of links in the sidebar. We'll continue to add links as we find them so check back often. I also added a hit counter to the blog so we can see what kind of interest this blog generates.
