Episode 12: Y Would Dye 4 U (featuring Scout)
If you're a fan of hue, saturation, fiber and indie dyers, you probably know Scout of Scout's Swag. But if you don't, come join us for a rainbow romp with the Queen of Color herself, Ms. Scout (aka Jamie). She came to Berkeley to teach her yarn dyeing class at Knit One One. Minds were expanded, fibers were transformed and color ruled the weekend.
There's also a Y KNIT exclusive: Scout made a special announcement! You've got to listen to the episode to find out the details of how she will be making the world a brighter place in the near future.
The following tidbits were mentioned during the show.

As always, a MASSIVE thank you to everyone who downloads and listens to Y KNIT.
