SM - New Hampshire

Yesterday, I had the opportunity to take a yarn dying class at Yarn and Fiber in Windham, NH...with Cheryl Potter of Cherry Tree Hill Yarns!!! Whoo was a fun, educational, and eye-opening 3 hr. class. :) And...I came home with a skein of my own creation in Supersock 100% merino fingering weight. Wow! I learned a lot on how dyers create their colorways, and then we did an exercise on how to take an experience, place, event, feeling, attitude, etc...and translate it into a colorway! Cheryl is a great instructor, and I was very pleased with the free-feeling of creating my own colors and bringing the skein home.
