Fiber Enabler Monday….

Ok, it is time for Fiber Enabler Monday, a new timesucking, avoidant, procrastinatory, I don’t want to write my lab report, helpful thing devised by me to enable your fiber addictions. In which mostly I’ll just go on and on and wax rhapsodic about some of my favorite fiber artists and tell you where you can get their stuff.

String Theory Fiber Arts is one of those nifty little Etsy shops you may have heard mentioned on Lime and Violet once upon a time (because the ladies, they have impeccable taste, non?). And the woman behind that nifty little Etsy storefront, who also happens to be a friend of mine and a recently published author, makes some good stuff.

She also named a colorway after me, and it’s a totally awesome colorway called Rainwood which is, in her own words, “Start with equal parts heart and zen grooviness. Mix with generous helping of goth stompy boots. Swirl together with determination, strength, and hilarity. Serve with a lovely pot of tea (the good stuff, -please-!).

This colourway is based on a dear friend who embodies all of these things and so much more. Deep velvety rose, rich black, cool celadon and teal, and warm, tea-stained brown.”

Dude, that’s some love right there. And I love her right back.

I’m totally trying to get her to start a limited edition batt club because her batts are completely inspired. Her rovings make for fluffy, squooshy, awesome yarns. Everyone should have a little String Theory in their stash… check her out!

      Well my etsy handle is “rainware” but if you tell her you came from Rainy’s blog she’ll know who it was. 😀
