Let me see, where should I start? Let’s try this. I’m Lisa Adcock and I work as a tech planning specialist in the Information Technology (IT) Mobility department at a major auto manufacturer. That’s my “real” job and then I get to come home to my husband and son and play with yarn! I either am knitting one, or two, or maybe three things or I’m dyeing yarn.
My online presence is in three places:
- Ravelry.com as “mom2bsa” where I have published designs for hats, socks, and cowls.
- Instagram at http://www.instagram.com/splashofcoloryarns
- This website where I’ll be talking about the yarn I’ve been dyeing, techniques I’m learning and using as well as announcing new colorways and promotions.
Recently, my husband asked if I was ok. I said “Sure, why?” He responded, “You haven’t dyed any yarn today!”
The main reason I first started dyeing yarn is that my husband asked for a pair of fingerless mitts made in camouflage yarn. I wasn’t able to find camouflage yarn in superwash merino wool that I liked. I started watching YouTube videos to learn how to dye yarn. My first experience was with a cake of yarn and Easter egg dye pellets. Once I saw the dye start to bubble out of the center of the yarn and color it, I knew I was HOOKED!
