I married "Acrylic" !?!

I took the What Kind of Yarn Are You quiz and I'm Shetland Wool. The description was pretty apt, too. I needed Scott to help me figure out how to get the code in to link to the quiz and make the picture the right size and all that. So, he got curious and took the quiz, too. We had about 75% of the same answers. I thought he would be shetland wool, too. Maybe Merino. But no, he's acrylic! Gasp!

"You are Acrylic. While you are very versatile, your plasticky countenance can be offputting. You are very good with children but can become a pill if left alone with them too long. You are very flexible but don't give in to manipulation."

Oh well, he is good with children. And he does pill if left alone with them too long. What can I say?

No submissions yet for the Big Box of Wool Ease. I will do two things to pique interest. First, post a photo here. And second, put a notice on the Knitty Swap section.

Really, send me a paragraph or two and tell me why you deserve it. It isn't hard.

I just sent you my essay, but I really wanted to leave you a comment because I am Shetland Wool, too! That's what I use for my profile on my blog. At least your husband agreed to being a type of yarn at all :)

ewwwwwww acrylic! that's it you have to get the boys to take the quiz too! Wonder what sort of fiberly offsprings you have at that rate :) I was mercerized cotton and Lucky was shetland wool like you. Funny.

I have emailed you an essay :-)
I also thought of one more reason to be considered...I live in WI too so your postage would be cheaper! Seriously though, I know you'll choose the most deserving recipient regardless of location.
Take Care!

Acrylic has some advantages too, you know!
-Acrylic is not jealous of boxes and boxes of wool even when they threaten to topple
-Acrylic lets sheep stay warm year-round
-Acrylic doesn't mind getting wet
-Without acrylic there would be no polar fleece

I could go on, but, hey, I'm acrylic!
