Another Knitting Quiz

And a great website with lots of valuable info on it . . . . .

http://www.knittingbrain.com/personality.php

Here's what I got at the end of the quiz:

The Artistic Knitter

You have a flair for combining colours and patterns. You approach your knitting in an intuitive way and you’re not afraid to experiment. Your knitting is stylish and striking. You probably have a weakness for novelty yarns and a stash of yarn you’ve bought on impulse.

Your impulsive approach can sometimes lead you into difficulties. Invest in a good knitting reference book, getting quick answers to your technical problems will leave you free to be more creative.

If you are looking for inspiration check out the work of other artistic knitters such as Kaffe Fassett or look at the latest styles in Vogue Knitting. Felted knitting is another way to add an extra dimension to your knitting, you can really let your imagination run wild.

I got the Logical Knitter

You appraoch knitting logically and methodically. You'll enjoy reading knitting reference books and find satisfaction in using the best knitting techniques. You like to understand the logic behind how things work. You strive for perfection in your finished knitting. Many successful profressional knitters fall in this category, in fact many have a scientific background, ie Stefanie Japel.
Don't let your perfectionism spoil your enjoyment of knitting. Hand knits won't always be perfect, but knitting is a craft where opportunities for learning are endless. Your logical approach means you can refine knitting patterns and as your knowledge increases you can produce well designed, logical knitting patterns.

Don't be afraid to experiment with colour and pattern, after all knitting can always be unraveled. You may lack confidence in your ability to be creative. A knitwear design reference book could well give you the boost you need.
