  13. Anne L says:

    So I’m the Platypus. I didn’t agree with most of the options. I would have said “none of the above.”
    Like your favorite spot for knitting, in the family room in a comfy chair with family doing their own thing? munching on cookies and stuff, snuggled in a previously made blanket working on the current project.
    “Always the platypus, never the bride.” Oh well… ha ha 😉

  14. Meg says:

  15. Jean says:

  16. Lynda says:

    Enjoyed this. I’m a bear!

  17. Rosemary McGrath says:

    Surprize! Surprize!
    It’s summer here but can be as limiting as winter when temperatures are extreme.
    I hide in the airconditioning, only going out for necessities like feeding and watering the hens and the dog, watering the plants in the early morning or evening if it’s been too hot.
    Then I can catch up on my rows, creating some satisfactory progress in colour and yarn.
    How lucky am I?

  18. Lesley Prowse says:

    I’m a ladybird! Elegant!!!

  19. Dinky knits says:
