First off, big news! I will be officially announcing and opening the doors to my online shop next Tuesday! Please come by for the name/logo/website reveal.
Also, on another note, you may have noticed I have changed the name of the blog to Tami's Amis and Other Creations. I figured crochet just didn't fit anymore, since I now crochet, knit, dye, etc.
Okay, now back to business.
Today I'm going to share a skein of fingering yarn that I'm keeping for myself. That's right, most of the skeins/hanks I've shared will be up on my shop soon (again, next week. WOOHOO!), but this one I couldn't part with. I'm not sure what I'm going to do with it yet, but since it's not easy to replicate, I figured if I like it that much, I should keep it. The reason it's hard to get another skein just like this one, is because I "broke" Wilton's black. I'm not sure if many of you know, but some dye colors break, meaning the colors separate once you change the pH balance (aka adding acid/vinegar). When I dyed this skein, I was trying to break it, and I was so happy with how it turned out. Some areas stayed black/gray, while others turned lavender/pink/green. The pics don't do it justice.
