I've got the yarn dyeing bug, and I want to expand my talents and share the fruits of my labor with you!

I'm Becka and I like yarn.

A lot.

I knit, crochet, even spin yarn, but when the weather gets warm I love to dye yarn.  What I really want to do is dye up a whole lot of different colors to work on building a more extensive portfolio of dyed yarns.  You know, dye my hands green (again).

This is where you come in.

Support my Kickstarter project at a yarn level and start dreaming.  Once we're funded, send me a list of colors, a picture that inspires you, anything that you would like translated into yarn.  I will use natural dyes, acid dyes, drink mixes, anything I can get my hands on to turn your idea into a skein of beautiful yarn.

Even if stash enhancement is not in the cards for you right now, every supporter will be inundated with eye-candy from every stage of the process.  Virtual stash doesn't count!

Funding for this project will be used to order supplies, ship out rewards, and send me to a three-day conference to share and increase my dyeing skills.  This means even more beautiful yarn for you and for knitters/weavers/crocheters/crafters to come.

Check out my previous work and get to know me and Knitting Wounded Yarns / Cherry Bomb Knits on Ravelry and at the Flickr account below.  Please contact me with any questions and thank you for checking out my project!
