ASK AWAY

on Ravelry asks ...
Hello, Kristin! I love your colorways!
I wanted to ask how many colors of dyes do you regularly use? Do you have only a couple of colors and you mix them a lot to get what you want or do you have a lot of colors and use them as they are? (For example do you have a green dye or do you mix yellow and blue for that? What about purples etc.?).
Thanks!
