This week we hear from Andy and Steve, the duo behind Leading Men Fiber Arts. Their tagline is "Centerstage for Color," and a visit to their website really lives up to that billing.
What is your favourite colour?
Steve: Green Andy: Orange
What is your current favourite yarn/fibre?
What is your favourite season?
Fall. We love the cooler weather and the turning of the leaves. Not to mention, autumn is known for breaking out the hand knits and attending awesome fiber festivals.
What is/was your current favourite knitting/crochet project?
I love knitting basic garter stitch boomerang shaped shawls. They are my happy place.
Where do you feel most inspired or get most inspiration?
Color inspiration comes from anything and everything you can imagine. We've pulled from plays and musicals, of course, but we also use nature, pop culture, and literature. But a lot of it comes from experimentation not only with the dyes, but with the dye process. That's when we get a little "mad scientist" in the studio.
Quick fire questions! What is your favourite:
Book? Steve: Devil in the White City Andy: Dresden Files
Quote? Andy: Be bold, and mighty forces will come to your aid. Goethe Steve: Two roads diverged in the woods, and I - I took the one less traveled by. Robert Frost
Cake? Steve: More of a pastry person Andy: All of them!
Cheese? Steve: Munster Andy: Colby/Jack
