Once you have a little knowledge in dying, you will be able to create your own colorways with just some fairly inexpensive materials, a little time, experimentation and space. My biggest problem was finding a place to wind my 40 foot skeins.
If you are a novice dyer, you may want to start with something a little more simple, but it won't take you long to step up to this. There are some patterns included and she also give "recipes" for the colorways shown in the book... INCLUDING the now famous on Yahoo Sock Knitters... The self patterning watermelon yarn!
I spin my own yarn and wanted to branch into more detailed dyeing techniques, but you can use a dye a commercially-made sock yarn, if you prefer. "Yarns to Dye For" provides the methods, color schemes and examples to start down the road to creating your own self-patterning yarns. I gave it a "4" only because I want MORE and this book is more about the author's examples than branching off to making your own creative yarns.
