I am a joiner....
Yep, I joined ScoutJ's dyeorama. I was on the fence, but my good friend Heather encouraged me to try something new. So I did get a bunch of easter egg dye kits for 33 cents each, and will get some koolaid also. I am in the WTF am I doing category, so I feel relieved that I wouldn't be ending up with a swap partner like Heather or anyone else who is a much more experienced dye'r. So I do have a skein of sock yarn that will be the first victim. I don't want my swap partner to get the first skein...sometimes I do things for the first time and they turn out golden..sometimes not LOL! Stay tuned, this could be a fun adventure for me.
I took a sock class on 2 circs. I have 2 more to go and I think this is the best thing I have done for myself and my knitting. Not only did I learn the start of a new sock knitting technique, but she answered by swatching questions and I hope a lot more. Most of my crafts I have learned by the seat of my pants, books, online list groups, etc. So I gotta go do some homework now... :)
