So, the hulaknitter and I have been partnered for the Holiday Theme Swap on Ravelry. 

I checked out her blog and she seems like a pretty spiffy sort.
I’ve emerged from my rock and ventured to the Monday night knit group last night. It was raining. Monday seems to be the day of rain around here–but it cleared up and made for okay weather by 5.30 or so. 
There is a young girl at knitting who just started middle school. I think we all remember (and try NOT to remember) those years. It’s fun to see her knit, and to teach her things–encourage her and I hope that we, as the strong women I’d like to think we are, can help her develop a sense of self…oh, but anyway:
I took this quiz that I found on the aforementioned Threads & Knots blog.

You are an Audrey — “I am at peace”

 

 

Audreys are receptive, good-natured, and supportive. They seek union with others and the world around them.

 

How to Get Along with Me   

  • * If you want me to do something, how you ask is important. I especially don’t like expectations or pressure
  • * I like to listen and to be of service, but don’t take advantage of this
  • * Listen until I finish speaking, even though I meander a bit
  • * Give me time to finish things and make decisions. It’s OK to nudge me gently and nonjudgmentally
  • * Ask me questions to help me get clear
  • * Tell me when you like how I look. I’m not averse to flattery
  • * Hug me, show physical affection. It opens me up to my feelings
  • * I like a good discussion but not a confrontation
  • * Let me know you like what I’ve done or said
  • * Laugh with me and share in my enjoyment of life

 

 

What I Like About Being an Audrey

  • * being nonjudgmental and accepting
  • * caring for and being concerned about others
  • * being able to relax and have a good time
  • * knowing that most people enjoy my company; I’m easy to be around
  • * my ability to see many different sides of an issue and to be a good mediator and facilitator
  • * my heightened awareness of sensations, aesthetics, and the here and now
  • * being able to go with the flow and feel one with the universe

 

 

What’s Hard About Being an Audrey

  • * being judged and misunderstood for being placid and/or indecisive
  • * being critical of myself for lacking initiative and discipline
  • * being too sensitive to criticism; taking every raised eyebrow and twitch of the mouth personally
  • * being confused about what I really want
  • * caring too much about what others will think of me
  • * not being listened to or taken seriously

 

 

Audreys as Children Often

  • * feel ignored and that their wants, opinions, and feelings are unimportant
  • * tune out a lot, especially when others argue
  • * are “good” children: deny anger or keep it to themselves

 

 

Audreys as Parents

  • * are supportive, kind, and warm
  • * are sometimes overly permissive or nondirective
