2015 Knitting & Crochet Blog Week—Day 1: 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?

Oh, just consider me a classic worsted weight wool except that I would be one of those yarns with a sparkly metallic ply spun in. Mostly traditional, mostly reliable, a little more high-maintenance than plain acrylic (but worth the effort), and mostly what the world expects. But then there’s that little extra that does make me more of an individual, but also keeps me from completely fitting into the most conventional situations. Oops. Which is how I both work in a traditional “mundane” field (librarianship) while maintaining strong interests in fantasy, science fiction, and New Age-type pursuits like astrology and tarot.

  1. Love your description and think the “selfie” is fun!


  2. Hahaha, “Selfie”!! 🙂

    Your description sounds great and I’d say you really picked a yarn that fits you perfectly!


  3. I love the hint of sparkle! I’m a library assistant and I find that most of the people I work with are a little outside of conventional!
