MAKING VLOG #2 | EMTOTHETHIRD: REVEALING THE COLOR OF MY NATURALLY DYED YARN

Posted by Mckenzie Mullen on


It's the vlog you've been waiting for! Did I leave you with enough of a cliffhanger last week? Every natural dye project teaches me something new and this was no exception. To see what I learned this go around and to see which color I'll be knitting my Ursa sweater out of, please watch this latest video!

I can't wait to share my next vlog with you! Make sure to subscribe to my YouTube channel to get notifications on each upload. Thanks for tuning in!

I'm Starting a FASHION Channel!

Posted by Mckenzie Mullen on

 Long time no see! I've been busy planning some exciting new pieces of the Emtothethird Yarn Co. brand. Have you ever thought about doing something and knew that the fear and insecurity you felt meant that you HAD to do it? That's what starting a YouTube channel has felt like for me.
