Cubist Socks

Via Princess Pea, I found this art quizz. It was a little different, so why not? Turns out it unearthed my teenage passion for cubism, one I thought quite latent, particularly since I went a little nutty at the Pitti Palace. Apparently not, though. I'm still more attracted to cubism than anything else, which means...

Huh - I'm extroverted, progressive and intelligent. Who knew? Here's what it said in full.

"People that chose Cubist paintings as their favorite art form tend to be very individualized people. They are more extroverted and less afraid of speaking their opinions then other people. They tend to be progressive and are very forward thinking. As the cubist painting is like looking into a shattered mirror where you can see different angles of the images, the people that prefer these paintings like looking at all angles of a problem. These people are intelligent and they are the transformers of our generation. They look beyond what is seen into what things could become. They are ready to leave the ideas of the past behind and look at what the future has to offer."

I'm quite happy with that, even if it totally contradicts much of what my teachers said in high school. And then it occurred to me. My favourite sock patterns are Cubist!!! This is why I like Cookie A.'s patterns so much. Socks like Trystero. I love a day when you discover something about yourself.
