5-8 points: Solids
The most classic of all yarn, solid colored yarn is dependable-- just like you. It's timeless, it goes with everything, and can always count on it. Chances are, you probably also really appreciate stability and structure, as well.

9-12 points: Variegated
You're often unpredictable and a bit of a wild card. The self-striping effects of variegated yarn means that you never really know what you're going to end up with at the end of your crochet project, but you're okay with that. You're not afraid to mix things up a bit and take a chance on the unknown. Experiementing with unusual combinations of colors and styles is right up your alley.

13-16 points: Eyelash
Simply put, you're a girly girl at heart. You love ruffles and everything you do tends to have a whimsical/romantic look to it. Your kind-hearted personality has blessed you with a wide circle of close friends and family (and you've likley been called the "mom of the group"). Just like eyelash yarn, you're soft, gentle, and approachable.

17-20 points: Pompom
Fun, cheerful, playful, and eccentric. Pompom yarn is definitely a hot trend right now, and you're all about being trendy. You're never afraid to make a statement and your wardobe mostly consists of big, bold patterns and large accessories. Your confidence is inspiring and you never have to worry about being left behind because you're always one step ahead of everyone else.

21-25 points: Sparkle
Your tastes are simple- you're easily satisfied with the best! There's no such thing as being over-dressed and you tend to go over the top more often than not. You have fancy, expensive, and elegant taste and don't see the harm in adding a little pizzaz to your life here and there. You only live once, right?

I am Solids, Classic That's me. I like verigated too but am an old fashioned girl.

I'm an "eyelash"? Nope. Stupid, useless, frivilous yarn. I HATE ruffles & buttons & bows and girly-girl things. I'm varigaeted . .. with a touch of sparkle if I can afford it.

Variegated. That's correct as I always enjoy the effects of my projects !! (little grandkids think the things I make them are cool or awesome) LOL

I'm variegated! Fits like a crocheted glove!

I definitely love variegated wools and experimenting with unusual colours and styles!

Solids.... Stability? Structure? Yup that's me!
