I’m angora.
You know, the fluffy stuff that gets up your nose?

That’s the yarn that “comes from cute little bunnies that look for all the world like furry footstools with ears,” according to The Knitter’s Book of Yarn, Clara Parkes new book from Random House / Potter Craft press.

I’m Angora Okay, well, it’s not actually the book itself that claims I have the soul of a furry footstool… it’s a quiz that matches up Parkes’ descriptions of various yarn fibers with the major personality types.

So, if five quick questions about my yarn-based habits are anything to go by, this is a description of my essential inner psyche:

Angoras are eager to please and are highly sensitive. Flexibility and adaptability are your strengths and sometimes your weakness, as well. You are essentially a warm and feeling person, and little escapes your impressionable mind. You are generous with others and strive for harmony in your relationships.

Move over, Dr. Freud — we’ve got knitting needles, and we’re not afraid to use them!

Take the yarn quiz yourself, and you can see a preview of the book — plus download a high-res button image (like my angora bunny badge, but of course the one for your own personality fibre) to print out with pride — plus you can order up a real button when you sign up for the uber-tempting Potter Craft newsletter.

Now, tell — which fiber are you?

    Oh dear, I am an oddball. Now there is a surprise. I wonder if it has anything to do with the fact that I haven’t knitted since my children were small? My needles do not call me at all anymore.
