Happy Fiber Friday everyone!
In case you were hoping for something from Tiffany's this year but maybe are fairly certain it isn't going to happen, I bring you a Tiffany's inspired yarn in this week's Fiber Friday Flashback.
I spun this one in May and here is what it was like:
Friday, May 18, 2007
Despite my recent self-imposed title of "worst blogger ever" I do have something to share for Fiber Friday.
It's another Tiffany yarn and it now belongs to Crafty Ginger!
To make yarn like this you dye mixed wools and mill ends a Tiffany blue. Then you overspin a single and set aside. Then string sturdy holographic thread with real pearls.
Next, ply the single with the thread and there you have it! Wrap it in a pretty white ribbon for gifting, of course.
I probably should have coaxed more pearls to the top of the skein for the photos the way a yarn stylist would. Lesson learned.
It's Friday today... Fiber Friday! The very best day of the week!
/end flashback. Man, I should start making more of those again.
PS - It might be a good day to go over to Crafty Ginger's blog and give her a hug. OR buy something awesome from her etsy shop. Either way.
