Today we made 12 pairs of needles for an order. I love the idea that someone takes the time to go through our massive range of beads to make their choices. This is really import to us as the whole ethos behind our business is that people can get the 'perfect' pair of needles or hook to suit their taste and personality.
This has made me think about why people choose the beads they do, is it down to 'I like green and i like circles' we used to think so but now the thinking is going a little deeper.
I used to think that the round beads were chosen over all other shapes as they represent a regular knitting needle and a square bead didn't make them feel like it was a knitting needle but i think now that this has more to do with personality than regularity. A lot of studies have been done on this subject and i would like to share some of their findings.
Looking at an article from www.psychologytoday.com it looks at why people choose colours and they worked with a team and looked at why people chose a certain colour crayon, these are the results on colours and what they say about your personality, is this true for you?
