Who needs therapy?

Whoa . . . I think my mind's just been blown.

You are Shetland Wool.
You are Shetland Wool.
You are a traditional sort who can sometimes be a
little on the harsh side. Though you look
delicate you are tough as nails and prone to
intricacies. Despite your acerbic ways you are
widely respected and even revered.

What kind of yarn are you?

Y'all . . . you revere me? Even though I'm a little on the harsh side? Awww . . . you didn' t have to do that. But now that you've started, why don't we just let inertia kick in and revere away!

I made a pair of mittens this week, in royal blue bulky Lamb's Pride. It only took a few hours to make them, and I was feeling such a smug self-satisfaction. Like, wow, if there were knitting Olympics, I could reasonably expect bronze or better in mitten execution! I felt like, you know how in Billy Madison, Billy has to spell the word "couch" for his second grade spelling bee, and he almost spells it with a "w" and an "r," but he finally gets it right and shouts, "I AM THE SMARTEST MAN IN THE WORLD!"


You know what that's called?

Hubris. Because one mitten is sliiiiiiightly shorter than the other. Immediate disqualification.

Geez, can I have a redo??? I didn't realize I was such a, um, PLAIN JANE. What the heck is Dishcloth Cotton anyway! Here are my results:

You are Dishcloth Cotton.
You are a very hard worker, most at home when you're at home. You are thrifty and seemingly born to clean. You are considered to be a Plain Jane, but you are too practical to notice.
I'm Shetland Wool too. What do they mean I can "sometimes be a
little on the harsh side" - jerks
You are Mohair.
You are a warm and fuzzy type who works well with others, doing your share without being too weighty. You can be stubborn and absolutely refuse to change your position once it is set, but that's okay since you are good at covering up your mistakes.

. . . that's what felting is for!
Mohair. That's right, I am made from the "long silky hair of the Angora goat".

Val, in your next Olympic outing would you make me a mohair scarf?

Hey! No disqualification. We can call the shorter mitten an interesting design element. Hee hee.
