    Learning learning at my age even. Crochet combining with Afghan knitting creates a lacy and soft scarfe. Flying does restrict you to crochet. At least you can do that but do need to combine my fantastic discovery ….. so can just use crochet hook big size so so much quicker. Can make up a scarfe within a week & not that much effort. Time is the important factor. So easy to lengthen a s much as you like.

      I have had no problem knitting while flying. There are some sites that sell knitting needle kits that pass the security checks. They come in a case, have short needles of a variety of sizes, plastic cables that you clip into the needle and can extend or shorten how long the cable is. They also have needles that don’t come in the kit that you can buy separately if you wish. I bought some of the extra large needles such as US 15. They clip into the same cables that are in the kit. I really like them.

  2. Yvonne says:

    Looking forward to see what my outcome is.

  3. Nora McCarthy says:

    I did make some choices just for the sake of it – none of the holidays listed would have been my idea of my absolute favourite holiday for example

  4. Jackie says:

    I think I’m a mixture

  5. Carrieann says:

    Will visit anywhere not just NY

  6. SherryG says:

    I am a flirt, I love all yarn..

  7. Becky says:

    You didn’t mention color!!

  8. Amanda W says:

    I agree with Nora – not everything listed would be my choice, but a bit of fun!
    I’m curious what will be the outcome of this quiz!

  9. Wanda says:

    Most of these answers did not for my life style

  10. Sally says:

    What happened to the color?

  11. Mrs SD Wilcock says:

    Did the quiz but I didn’t get a result for it!

  12. Jean Royston says:

    Think all my answers were really true to me

  13. Julia says:

    None of the holidays to be honest. But I like theatre.
    I am a bit of a mixture too.

  14. Jean Royston says:

    I am pretty sure my answers are real

  15. Amelia says:

    You don’t get to see your answer? Bummer.

  16. Debby says:

    No results ???

    No colour preferences.., still fun !

  17. barbara labrecque says:

    This was fun…

  18. Shelley Krueger says:

    You didn’t offer the right answers.

  19. J says:

    I’m a mix of so many!

  20. Valerie Ruberu says:

    Agree with some – had to make some choices just for the fun of it … cos the choices given aren’t really my kinda thing – but would agree would be my dreams

  21. Jan says:

    guess I’m all favorite yarns…… didn’t get a response on the quiz…

  22. Donna B Klingensmith says:

    Sounds like a lot of fun.

  23. Marie says:

    I really enjoyed the quiz, but I think I looked at it a bit broader than some of the others who replied. Such as hanging out in NYC and shopping. I just figured that if that seemed most fun it would also apply to any large city I haven’t been to yet. I didn’t think it restricted me to that place or only to shopping and plays. Museums would be good, too. I also answered some by the ‘feeling’ I got from the idea of the question. It was fun and I was pleasantly surprised that my answer came back with a yarn I didn’t expect, but is the perfect choice for me. There are so many yarns that I hadn’t really found this one before. It took all of the confusion out of looking at every single one out there and trying to decide if it would work. As for the color, my yarn had many to choose from and the colors blended well with each other. The colors shown in my yarn gave me options and ideas for many things I could make with that yarn and still be pleased with the yarn choice.

  24. Liz hart says:

    I loved the quiz how about one for a knitting prize

  25. Ruth says:

    Didn’t actually get a result. Dunno if it’s because I block cookies, I’m in a hotel with crummy and slow WIFI, or my wacky answers broke the system…. Or maybe it’s just that I prefer fingering weight yarns for sock knitting?

  26. Marilyn says:

    How do I find out the results?

  27. MRjorie crawley says:

    Most of the options were not applicable to me even though I tried for the nearest option. NOt a surprise. In the Personality Traits of MyerBriggs there are only4% of us in the world.

  28. Mary says:

    I am handicapped and have cancer so I can’t do most things

  29. Chantal says:

    Fun but some answers would need multiple choices

  30. Chantal says:

    Fun quiz but some question (vacation) need multiple answers

  31. MrsT says:

    But I want to know what yarn I match with

  32. Jessie says:

    Buying online can be difficult particularly if wool is advertised as yarn am not sure if wool or acrylic

  33. Terri says:

    I would like to find out my results from the quiz.
