More specifically–me and two of my favorite other “Amy’s,” Amy Singer and Amy Swenson. Because fiber impresario Shannon Okey didn’t have anything better to do in addition to writing books, teaching classes, being on TV, Radio, opening her store Stitch Cleveland, she’s also now hand painting and selling selling beautiful lace weight, yarn on Etsy, and naming it after her fiber buddies. This skein is called The Amys. I love the candy colors. It’s a suprewash merino, she says slightly thinner than sockyarn. 2-ply, the 8 oz., 1120 yd skein sells for $35.00.

    It was all happy and awesome, like our Amyses. (What’s the plural? I suppose it’s Amies… but Amyses sounds funnier).

    Despite my PEELING back, it was all worth it to stare at a wall fulla gorgeous yarn… 😉

    BTW, that Tilli sweater is so awesome, it hurts. I love that shade… would you call it “beigey pink?”

    Beautiful color! What an honor to have a yarn named after you!

    This is so cool, who knew that my daughter would actually go to Stitch Cleveland and buy this yard for me and my sister… It is even prettier wound up. I also got the Karin color too..
