Knitting Guru Moi???

What Kind of Knitter Are You?

You appear to be a Knitting Guru. You love knitting and do it all the time. While finishing a piece is the plan, you still love the process, and can't imagine a day going by without giving some time to your yarn. Packing for vacation involves leaving ample space for the stash and supplies. It can be hard to tell where the yarn ends and you begin.
Take this quiz!

I know it's Thursday and it's supposed to be about the dogs, but I came across this quiz at
Crimson Purl

I was, am totally amazed that it said I was a knitting guru. I would have described myself as more of an enthusiatic bumbler. I do love knitting and I love the fancy complicated stuff but let's just say that it's not always lovely or loved. Sometimes it's just okay. Mediocre at best. I don't mind, for me it's all about the journey and the joy I get from knitting, watching the piece slowly build, the rhythmic soothing click and slide of the needles, the softness of the yarn, the places and spaces that I can go to in my head lulled by the stitches slipping along. I have seen a great deal of talent out there, Wee Wonderfuls, Little Cotton Rabbits, Allsorts to name just a few of the great blogs, there are many, many, more. I love seeing that talent and knowing that there are people out there doing good things. I am just happy being the best knitter I can be, not the best knitter in the world, just as good as I can be. So long as you all continue to be the best you can be at the things you do then crafts continue to make the world a brighter place.

The puppies are all doing well, I will post photos of them when they open their eyes which will be in two to three days time. They are quite funny at the moment all squeaky and just adorable to cuddle. It will be soooo hard to let them go to new homes in six weeks.

I'm a purist apparently. That was a great link.

I'm glad you enjoyed our selection of non-American crafters. So what are you knitting now?

I'm a hopeless knitter, I've been trying to knit an elephant with diasterous consequences - never known such pain in my hands - I'm sure I must be doing something wrong.

I wish I could knit. I have no patience, or maybe its a dexterity problem. :)
