Thursday, October 22, 2009. Dyeing to Knit by Elaine Eskesen. This book is about creating, and then using, your own hand-dyed yarns. There are chapters on color theory, the dyeing procedure (many different techniques are outlined here), patterns, but most interestingly, the design phase. I love that the book shows many examples of how to play with your hand dyed yarns to get effects other than just striping. Eskesen plays with mixing solids and multi-colored yarns

I borrowed this book from my local library and loved it so much I bought it. Great book on dying yarn showing many different techniques while encouraging creativity.

This book was a good introduction to the method of dyeing the author uses, however, that method is the only one that has in-depth instructions and pictures. After viewing several YouTube videos using other methods of dyeing such as crockpot, microwave, Kool-aid and paste food colors, I expected to get a broader range of dyeing methods and options to choose from. I will add this book to my knitting library, but probably won't use the method used here for dyeing projects.

After all the positive reviews of this book - I was unhappily surprised by how much I didn't like this book.

I felt the writing style was odd. And whether or not it was style, simplicity or bad research, much of the information felt simplified or dumbed down. I thought that many of the example pictures were classic examples of what not to do with busy yarn and textured patterns. Even though the book is called Dyeing to Knit, I felt that there was very little discussion about designing yarn colors and patterns for a goal finished project.

I was also very disappointed in the patterns, I thought that many of them were pretty awful, and the only one that I would knit at all was so basic that one hardly needed a pattern to knit it.

Lots of tips on dyeing wool and good knitting patterns!

When I buy a gourmet cookbook I know I may never cook a recipe that has multiple steps and takes hours but I still enjoy reading the recipe and taking away the inspiration to create a fabulous meal for my family and friends. Like a gourmet cookbook, Elaine Eskesen's "Dyeing to Knit" is thoroughly enjoyable even if you are not sure you are ready to dye your own yarn. The book is filled with beautiful photos, wonderful color combinations, design ideas, and fun techniques that you can pour over for hours.

In the opening chapter Elaine shares her love of color and the sources of her inspiration for the colors she chooses. She then takes her readers through an easy to follow understanding of color, their relationships and provides knitted samples to show the interaction between colors when knitted together. Elaine's style is so charming that she may lure even the most reluctant knitter to try creating their own color scheme.

If you do decide to try your hand at dyeing you will be pleased to find clear instructions, recommended tools and dyes that are easily accessible and fun ideas for mixing colors to produce unique effects.

In the chapter on design Elaine tells us how she thinks about designing the pieces she knits and reveals that she doesn't "do complicated knitting" but rather projects that she can "pick up at any moment". In addition six knitting designers share their inspiration and Elaine talks about specific artist and how they have influenced some of her designs.

Patterns for items that easily incorporate color and texture are included but by the time you reach the last chapter you may already be putting together an idea for your own design.

This book has both lovely pictures and solid instructions - an all too rare combination in fiber books. The author uses and recommends dyes and yarns which are both high quality and easily available, gives instructions that are detailed but not intimidating, puts a strong emphasis on safety, but still understands the fun aspects of playing with color - she gives six different "experimental" dyeing methods that let you run amok with color and produce one-of-a-kind results. She also includes the more conventional single color, space-dyed, and handpainted techniques, and sections on color design and using hand-dyed yarns. This book would be both useful and inspirational for anyone from a complete novice to an intermediate level. As much as I love my other dyeing books, this is the one I would recommend to someone new or to someone who wants to get more serious but still have fun.

This book, in short, is awesome. Pictures are crisp and instructions are clear. From the novice dyer to the more advanced, this book has most of what you need. I do wish there was instruction in other types of dye like Kool-Aid and Wilton Cake Dye but on the whole, everything was useful. I've been dyeing for four months and this book has been invaluable.

The patterns for hand dyed yarn knits are at the end of the book and are interesting. I've knit for two years and the patterns run the gamut from easy to advanced.

If you can't take a dyeing class, the next best thing is to buy this book.
This is my absolute favorite knitting book. I don't dye clothes, but it taught me how to use a limited number of skeins (not as easy as it seems), how to turn sock yarns into clothes, and more about turning different yarn wts. into clothes. I love every pattern and Elaine's daughter made a great model.
