Libra: The Scales
September 23 - October 22

Oh, hi there Libra. Sorry, was just lost in your eyes for a minute there. You're so damn charming! I blush :)

You're probably one of those people who show up to every knit night. You love to be around people, and especially love to be in posh, lovely surroundings (make sure your knit night's in a trendy new cafe for ultimate Libra pleasure!)

Your easy going, sociable nature makes you a much welcomed fixture at thesesame knit nights. Others appreciate the vibe you set out, making knitting in a group a great way to unwind after a busy day. You love beautiful things, and seeing all the gorgeousness of other people's knitting is very pleasing. You're the diplomat of the group, balancing out difference of opinion and finding a good, common way to maintain harmony. It's true, people's hackles can be raised if such a salacious remark as "continental is the only way to knit!" is spoke, but you're very good at calming those treacherous waters.

You may think less of someone for buying (in your humble opinion) cheap, horrid and useless yarn. But my goodness, you'd certainly never say anything about it! You loathe confrontation, and keep your "sophisticated tastes" to yourself.

When it comes to projects, you like your sophisticated, pricey and luxurious yarn. Unfortunately, you don't care for tedious, hard work, and will usually either work in very quick, simple projects or be a habitual starter and stopper of knits. Those quick projects are also a great choice for you, since you're sometimes indecisive and changeable.
You're artistic and talented, but might steer away from that intricate, 2,000-hours-of-work-shawl due to your underachieving tendencies.

Libra rules the kidneys - maybe a luxurious, comfy sweater is the thing to knit for you? (well, your kidneys are in your torso... come on! Work with me here people!)
Friday's you're lucky day to start projects.
You'll be sure to make a Libra happy if you gift them some (expensive!) blue or green yarn.

ROTFLOL! Yup! That's me. And looking over my stash, I have entirely too much blue. ;)

Well I'm a libra and that almost describes me perfectly. The only thing that doesn't is that I'm constantly looking for a deal. THat made made me laugh out loud when I read that.

Haha! So true! I'd say 80-90% of my stash is green or blue. I'm definitely an underachiever too. I prefer practically mindless knitting :)

Yep, you pretty much nailed me as a Libra!

I'm a libra, but a leo rising, and it's interesting how I'm a blend of the two knitters. I love expensive orange and green yarn. I do need to work on balancing my bossiness and unwillingness to embrace confrontation. That combination just doesn't work out well for me sometimes. lol. Well done. :)
