2. If you were to describe yourself as a color, what would that color be? Why?
Erin McFarland, Owner and Creative Director of Three Irish Girls Yarn Inc. I am a cancer and my controlling planet is the moon (not that i read to much into it) so I am not one color but it all depends on my mood- when I am ON and excited I am Raspberry Pink/Lipstick Pink, when I am relaxed and content I am a soft periwinkle, when I am meditative and reflective i am turquoise, when I am outright happy I am sunshine yellow. I believe we truly connect to colors for one reason or a another due to a memory or feeling. I relate to the Raspberry as it is is a confident color, periwinkle as it is a dreamlike color that just makes you want to take t hat needed exhale, turquoise is a a serene color that centers me, and yellow is the color of smiling from the inside out that makes joy.
3. What's a motto that you live your life by?
It is more a song: Float On by Modest Mouse: Now don't you worry we'll all float on alright That song keeps my problems in perspective- all small stuff in the grand scheme of things
4. What is your favorite thing that you've ever created? And for S&G Your least favorite?
I am proud of the colorways that have stood the test of time- I created Everlasting Gobstopper and Fireside Chat and they are still favorites amongst our customers. So my least favorite that I created- not that it is not a beautiful colorway but that it is a bitch to make- Fire Dance- I created a monster when I created this colorway.
5. What's a piece of advice about crafting, life or both that you'd like to pass along?
The world of yarn/ fiber arts is happy and inclusive- if you find yourself not being either of those time to check yourself.. Tell yourself in the midst of someone else bs/drama- Not My Monkey, Not My Circus In life, let inspiration lead you- it will take you to places hat you have never imagined.
