I'm Somebunny

Thanks to Wendy I found this fun quiz to find out what type of fiber you are. Turns out I'm Angora.

Angora – Soft and warm “Angora has a warmth that rivals cashmere and softness that rivals qiviut. Best of all, it comes from cute little bunnies that look for all the world like furry footstools with ears.” –The Knitter’s Book of Yarn

Angoras are eager to please and are highly sensitive. Flexibility and adaptability are your strengths and sometimes your weakness, as well. You are essentially a warm and feeling person, and little escapes your impressionable mind. You are generous with others and strive for harmony in your relationships.

I read this and my first response was that it doesn't really capture me. I'm not sure I'm highly sensitive - being a lawyer you have to have a thick skin. Am I flexible? Harmonious? I am impatient, type A and a bit controlling. So I was about to toss this out and chalk it up to a silly quiz when suddenly it hit me. This is a knitting test. And the more I thought about it the more I realized it does reflect the "knitting me". Can it be? Is the knitting me a different me than the "other me"? I realized that knitting actually makes me a better person. It makes me calm, flexible and a warm and feeling person. Knitters of the world unite - we can make the world a better place!

Very good interpretation!

I turned out to be a camel. LOL.
"Camels are frank and straightforward in their manner. You know what you want and, while you are extremely polite and tactful, you have no difficulty being firm and definite. You are not very flexible or adaptable; you like things to be a certain way."

Hmmm, I'm afraid that DOES sound like me.

"It makes me calm, flexible and a warm and feeling person." got that right!!! I don't know what I would do if I couldn't knit?

I'm angora too by the way :)

I love visiting here, there's always so much eye candy. Nancy is going to love her cashmere scarf. Stitches West sounds like fun. I didn't realize it was coming up. Hmm... I have the feeling they may have sent their schedule to the old house. I took the quiz and came up Angora too.
