        4. Judy talked about an article that she read in Cast On in which the author discussed home dying her yarn in her kitchen. Judy, who regularly dyes yarn for her business, said that dye and other chemicals should not be done in a kitchen, using kitchen utensils. Anyone using dye should use dedicated equipment and wear a mask.
