Feature Friday! Christiane Knight!

Oh do I have a treat for you this week!!! May I present: Christiane Knight! I know her from FB! She is a hoot! you should totally go and hang out with her! She also has THE. MOST. YUMMY. Yarn I have seen in a long time!

Ok first here is a bit about her and a few photos to drive you crazy with:

I’m Christiane “Xiane” Knight of Threeravens Yarns and Fibres, and I got to this fibery place through an interesting journey! As a DJ with a weekly club night, the co-host of the night and I decided that starting a knitting circle in the slow opening hours would be a fun thing to do. We were both total newbies, chicks with mohawks and bright hair sitting around in a dark bar and dropping stitches. It was fun! I was hooked.
This naturally progressed to the realisation for me that, even more than the knitting process, it was touching the soft yarns that I loved the most. I decided that I needed to learn how to spin. This was the best decision of my life. I was a natural, and I slowly transitioned from spinning tunes to spinning yarn.

My claim to fame: ” I blend amazing fibres, colours, and textures into a tactile rainbow of awesome.” Whee!

I favour fun, unusual, and eye-catching colours, textures, and techniques. I specialise in artistic and conceptual yarns, art batts, hand-dyed fibres, and couture fibre jewelry.
In other words, I like things bright and shiny and lumpy-bumpy and wild and fun – just like me!

Other fun facts: I have been dyeing my hair funny colours since 1985. I love goats and take weekly trips to a farm to feed and pet some local rascally goat-friends. I’ve lived in three different states in the US, yet I’ve never managed to move above the Mason-Dixon line. I went to college for Theatre Arts with a minor in Dance. I didn’t last a year. I’m incredibly handy at many things, all of which are not very good at bringing steady pay. I was the singer of a Goth Rock band, and a radio DJ as well as a club DJ. [see the last statement about getting paid regularly, ha!]

And if this wasn’t enough, Christiane has said she would love to have a giveaway here at Rambling Designs! WEEEEEHAAAA! 🙂 SO you lucky gusses get a chance to win one of her wonderful yummy yarns!
