  1. Great video podcast! The Twisted Sister Sock Workbook is my absolute fav for all the reasons you mentioned! I love it because it makes all the different aspects of dyeing and spinning so accessible no matter what a persons level of experience. It was the first dyeing book I picked up and thought, oh, OK, I think I can handle this. Looking forward to the next podcast!
