Unless you’ve been living under a rock (and don’t have a Facebook account), you are aware that yesterday our U.S. Supreme Court agreed that any human person could marry any other human person. Hard to believe we had to have an argument to decide that, but that’s an entry for another day.
As a blogger and a crafter, I love me a good theme. So in honor of this auspicious event, I thought I would share some of the wonderful and amazingly colorful ways you can express your joy at this news as a crafter.
First off, yarn.
There are quite a few companies out there that profess to make rainbow-striped yarn. I can tell you from experience, though (cough – Lorna’s Laces Rainbow – cough) that they don’t all do it well.
White Birch Fiber Arts has cornered the (Etsy) market on rainbow colorways and their awesome names, and several of my crafting friends have used them quite successfully.
WBFA’s yarns aren’t cheap, but they are wonderfully witty, including:
- My Rainbow Can Beat Up Your Honor Student
- Does This Rainbow Make My Black Look Big
- Sparkle Pony
- Rainbow Warrior (which also happens to be the name of the University of Hawai’i football players)
- The Full Monty
- And my personal favorite: Nothing Says Screw You Like a Rainbow.
KnitPicks.com has Stroll Hand Painted self-striping sock yarn in Spectrum.
You can go old-school and buy one of each color and make your own from Forest Hill.
Or you can go old-century, start from scratch and spin your own with Frabjous Fibers Stripey Batts.
Heck, just search “rainbow yarn” in Etsy. That’s really where the pot of gold is.
Just about everything looks better in a rainbow. Including our Constitution, as it turns out.
