Have you ever made your own pattern or dyed your own yarn? How did it turn out?
Uh, no. I’ve never dyed anything, largely because of a lack of space and equipment, but also because I’m not very interested in the process. (Yet?)
I’ve never officially made a pattern. I’ve winged it on some cozies, hats, mittens; things I’d already made a few times, and had a good idea about how they worked in general, and then adapted the basic structure for the yarn/needles/size I had going. Mostly it was a lot of “okay, this…this looks big. Is this big? Yeah, this is too big. Rip.” I’m not so awesome with the accurate and detailed planning.
