Hi everyone! This episode is a little bit longer than usual. I did a lot of editing and cutting. It was originally over an hour but I've managed to cut it down to about 35 minutes. There are some sound issues when my a/c kicks on in the middle of recording, but it should pass in a few minutes.

And about the "Dyepots" section ... I have so much more to say about setting dyes, what causes bleeding, when it's expected or even acceptable, how to avoid it, etc. I cut out a lot for the sake of time. If you have any questions at all about washing yarns, re-setting dyes, bleeding yarns, dye chemistry, or any other topic please do not hesistate to ask here or in the Ravelry group.
