Knitting and Crochet Blog Week - Day 1



Day One (Monday 11th May): If You Were Yarn.
If you were a type or brand of yarn, which would you be? Are you a classic pure wool? Is there extra tension but a bit of bounce in you because of your high twist? Would you be more like a high-maintainance, strictly hand-wash fluffy angora or a ‘bring it on’ acrylic, bravely heading into the world of possible baby-sick laundering disasters knowing that you will always come out bright and unharmed?

So I thought about this...and did a bit of research....
 Sadly, I don't have The Book of Wool, which I think would have gone into a  more in depth explanation than any of these...but Clara Parkes did write something I liked....about 3 ply yarn...

"the resulting yarn will be much stronger and springier. It will display more spunk and personality on the needles...."  

that's me...I'm strong...I can spring back when I'm knocked down..and I have lots of spunk and personality....I have a very strong personality....someone told me I was genuine the other day....and I've been told...you see what you get....I don't pretend to be something I'm not...

I did take two yarn quizzes and was told I was this....



and....

 You are a strong and sturdy yarn that people can always depend on to help create something quickly and efficiently.  You are decisive, self-confident, and a born leader.  However, you can sometimes take on too much at one time, and work too quickly.  Just like Super Bulky yarn isn’t perfect for every project out there, you sometimes need to be reminded that you are only one person.  When working on the right project and given the needed support, though, you are an un-stoppable force.

I agree with the first one fully....if I had the money...I would travel all over....the second one is true until the take too much on part.....I do my part....but to be truthful..I can be very lazy and am a procrastinator....

If you want to take these...the first is here..and you need to put in an email address....the second one is here

I hope you join us for this week....go to Eskimimi's site to find out more information...

Quizzes! What a great idea for this prompt. I too think you're genuine and a natural leader. I still think of you as my captain :)

Love quizzes! I'm a bit bemused that I took the first one and I got a novelty yarn covered in pom poms, but hey ho!

Fun! I did one of the quizzes and found that I am a lace yarn!

These yarn quizzes are eerily accurate - at least for me.
Thanks for the links.

I used a quiz well and while for me it was correct, it still was fun to take it, even if it wouldn't have been correct…
