Day One is to pick a house which best represents our knitting or crochet style:
The House of Bee: Bees are busy and industrious, but can flit from one interesting project to the next as bright and shiny things capture their interest.
The House of Manatee: Manatees are gentle, calm and cuddly. Relaxed and unflashy they represent the comfort and soft side of knitting and crochet.
The 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.
The House of Peacock: Peacocks take something good and make it brilliant. Buttons, embellishments and a bit of sparkle prove that perfection lies in the details – like a Peacock’s Tail.
So, just as Harry Potter was chosen by the Sorting Hat to be in Gryffindor, he could speak parsaltongue and wondered at times if he should be in Slytherin. I too am pulled between The House of Bee and The House of Monkey. Anyone following the blog knows that I have a very difficult time sticking with one thing – I’m a total FLITTER! Busy, Busy, Busy, Flit, Flit, Flit. But, The House of Monkey totally describes me too. To chose, to chose. Maybe The House of Beekey? or The House of Monbee? If it helps, our grandma would be a perfect fit of The House of Peacock. She embellished everything she could lay her hands on.
Ok, I’ll pick. Even though I am such a flitter, I’ll pick The House of Monkey because I’m really into learning new stitches and knitting techniques. Curls and I pick patterns to try which challenge us. The Sorting Hat has spoken!
