This year’s Knitting & Crochet Blog Week is split into 4 houses. Don your favourite hat and let it guide you to which house you will be in. Think about which house best embodies your qualities and declare your place. Post about your crafting outlook/style.
How to choose among these "houses"? My Hogwarts house choice was a piece of cake (-ahem- SOAR RAVENCLAW!!), but these are tricksier for certain. The Internet loves a questionnaire...
Are You Right or Left Brained?
What is your Game of Thrones sigil?
Band Name Generator
What Does Your Birth Date Mean For Your Love Life?...and that was my original thought when faced with the house-choice conundrum (oh, the Myers-Briggs of it all). BUT that got complicated in my brain really fast, so instead: process of elimination!
It's so simple...
Now, a clever knitter would be a Manatee, because he would know that only a great fool would choose form over function. I am not a great fool, so I can clearly not choose to be a Peacock. But you must have known I was not a great fool, you would have counted on it(!), so I can clearly not choose to be a Manatee on practicality alone
Because Bees have that attractive "industrious" label, as everyone knows, and Manatees and Peacocks are complete opposites, and they will cancel each other out, as my own ideas cancel each other out, so I can clearly not choose to be a Manatee or a Peacock.
(truly, I have a dizzying intellect; wait till I get going!)
Where was I?
Yes, Bees are busy, and you must have suspected I would not align myself with something so obvious, so I can clearly not choose to be a Bee. (I'm just stalling now... you'd like to think that, wouldn't you?)
Peacocks "take something good and make it brilliant," which means they probably like to modify patterns to improve them, and potentially design their own, trusting on their own ideas to be original and groundbreaking, so I can clearly not choose to be a Peacock. But, I've also made a personal choice to avoid toy knitting and home accessories, which means I instead focus on garment knitting, and in garment knitting I have learned that shawls and sweaters require focus and diligence, so I would have put amigurumi and other multi-part things as far from myself as possible, so I can clearly not choose to be a Manatee or a Bee.
It HAS worked! I've made my choice, and I choose---
What in the world can that be?
tl;dr: Ah, yes, a Monkey! Because: while all my knits are practical, I'd rather learn a new skill than churn out "comfort" knitting (NOT a Manatee); I have no interest in pattern design, and my pattern mods are more about function than "embellishment" (NOT a Peacock); and I maintain project monogamy and rarely "flit" to Cast.On.All.the.Things (NOT a Bee).
|HOUSE OF MONKEY: Intelligent and with a fun loving side, Monkeys like to be challenged with every project presenting them with something new and interesting.|
