I am a little giddy in the filming on this video because the day of filming a spinning wheel arrived on my doorstep! This dyeing video where I did a lot of flying by the seat of my pants ended up being a beautiful example of how the different colors that make up Wilton’s Violet Food Coloring Break (separate) to give you a multicolored yarn.
