PINK! Who doesn't love pink? This colorway includes three different colors of pink that blend into this lovely colorway. Available in DK and Fingering, this is sure to give your projects a pop! Pick up yours on this site or on Etsy.
Inspired by the many colors of the sky, the gin-based Aviation cocktail captures many layers of blue, gray, and violet. While I personally am not a gin fan, I fell in love with the beauty of the drink and how it reflected the sky, so I wanted to capture that same feeling in the yarn.
This is a softer color than I usually do, but I absolutely love it. It pairs so well with many of the other Friday Night Fibers colorways, but also is strong enough to stand on its own. This colorway is available in both DK and Fingering weight, and can be purchased on this site or on Etsy.
Happy Yarn Hoarding!
Black Magic is a BEAUTIFUL drink and is perfect for Halloween-themed parties. It's a deep, dark black with sparkles of silvery white that shimmer throughout. I decided to use that as inspiration for my next Friday Night Fibers colorway, and I could not be more pleased.
The black is deeper than the Black Velvet colorway, because I died it twice. Yet there are still spots that sparkle and pop throughout the skein. Lovely!
I made 4 skeins in fingering and 4 in DK weights. You can find them in my Etsy shop and on this website.
I warned you I was working on other colorways! We'll it's time to reveal them! Like before all are inspired by a cocktail.

A while back I mentioned I was dabbling in hand dying my own yarn. Since that time I've taken several classes, watched tons of videos, and read several books and articles on the subject. I've spent countless (but fun) hours trying different methods and yarn blends to determine the one that would give me the results I wanted.
I'm pleased to announce that hard work has come to fruition, and I'm now ready to introduce my own hand dyed selection of yarns: Friday Night Fibers!
Each colorway is inspired by a cocktail - yep - a cocktail! So many of the cocktails are so pretty with their unique colorways and garnishes, so I decided to take my inspiration from them. Not only do you get a fabulous skein of yarn in a fantastic colorway, you also get the recipe in case you'd like to try the cocktail for yourself.
During the course of this adventure I tried several different yarn blends and came away with two fantastic options that are a joy to knit and crochet with. The DK weight is a blend of Super Fine Superwash Merino and Mulberry Silk. The Fingering weight is a blend of Extra Fine Superwash Merino, Cashmere, and Nylon.

As I write this more colorways are in the kettle and more ideas are flowing. There will definitely be a "part two" of this post!.
