I hope this doesn't seem too site-pimpy, but I've written a tutorial on how to dye self-striping yarn for socks at home.  Any feedback is much appreciated.

Well written, very clear and concise. I'd say you did a pretty excellent job with the tutorial. If I ever decide to take up dyeing, I would definitely check back with this tutorial!

Also, the yarn looks absolutely gorgeous.

well done!  i am a professional dyer (part of my job as a costumer is to dye over 200 yards of fabric and fiber per season), and i am very impressed, i would never have guessed that you were new at this.

Fantastic!  I'm hoping to try my hand at dying as soon as the holiday knitting is done.  Thanks for sharing!

Great.  Now I have to add "Try dying self-striping yarn" to the REALLY long list of things to do.  Thanks a lot.

Seriously, this is a really great tutorial and your yarn looks really fun!!  I can't wait to try it.  (now to find some yarn to dye)(oh, wait.  FIRST to finish the 5 Christmas presents in progress, THEN to find some yarn to dye)

if you can't be a good example then you'll just have to be a horrible warning.

Fun! I'm convinced that if I had learned knitting at an earlier age, I would have been more interested in math. There are so many useful applications for math with knitting and yarn.

I also want to try out Dale Baby Ull now. Where do you get yours?
