A Chat with Erica from In The Deep Hue Sea

refine http://winthinks.com/83233-buy-zyban-online.html Tuesday, September 19, 2017 In honor of my love for indie dyers, each month I’ll be bringing you an inside look at the dyer behind the gloves! In my upcoming book, Knits That Rock: Volume 1, I’m designing each piece using an indie dyer that inspires me! This month, I’ve been knitting with the amazing yarn dyed by Erica Roberts, owner and dyer for In The Deep Hue Sea. Why am I using her yarn for my first project for the book indipill.com? Because it’s been sitting on my shelf staring at me and begging to be knit with while I finished other commissions! As I’m knitting on projects for clients, I stare at yarn and dream of what the alluring colors can become. It hit me one day and her Charcoal Rainbow set told me exactly what it wanted to be. I’ll have an inside peak at that project next week!   But for today, here is the story behind the dyer! How did you get into dying yarn? I started dyeing yarn when my oldest son was just a baby.

KnitsyKnits is writing a knitting book!

And I’ve done a LOT of ogling yarn deciding what would photograph well and what colors and brands I want to work with. So many decisions made and yet this is only the beginning! I’ve been very busy knitting for clients and meeting some tight deadlines, but it’s time for me to finally get this book ball rolling! I’ll still be working on some super cool and super top-secret projects, but I’m excited to start sharing pictures of what’s to come in my debut book. So what can I tell you for now? The name of the book is Knits That Rock: Volume 1. Why Volume 1? Because this is only the first of many (assuming this first book doesn’t kill me!). KTRv1 will be filled with edgy designs and many will incorporate…
