Dip-Dyeing, Hand-Painting, Tie-Dyeing, and Other Creative Techniques by Gail Callahan. Don't limit yourself to the colors available in stores - find out how fun and satisfying it is to hand-dye yarn and fleece right in your own kitchen! Self-taught dyer Gail Callahan shows you a variety of simple techniques that turn plain, outdated, or leftover yarns into colorful "new" fibers - exactly the color and quantity you want. Standard kitchen equipment is all you need; you can dye in a microwave oven, a stovetop kettle, a crockpot, a traditional oven, or even an electric frying pan - Callahan covers it all. She also includes instructions for designing self-striping and multicolored yarns with dip-dyeing, tie-dyeing, hand-painting, and other inventive techniques.
