I have a theory about string

Costume dyer & painter for Broadway, Film and TV industries. Specialty; Color matching for restoration, conservation and duplication. Also ruining clothes - dirt, age, blood. Dog years and clothing years run about the same.
At age 8 straight needles and a ball of yarn where handed to me. I want to believe the intention was for me to teach myself to knit. That's what I did anyway.
Greatest color theory lesson from my dye/color mentor - "Here, you know how to do this. It needs to be finished and dry by 7:30 tonight. Don't screw it up."
