I don't know about you, but my family would make fun of me growing up of being a touch-feely person because I wanted to touch everything, like clothing or whatever when something sparked my fancy. And I vividly remember loving those children's touchy-feely books of different kinds of textures. Well, that hasn't gone away a bit! I just can't keep my hands to myself when I go somewhere where there are fabrics! I guess it's that instant learning from touching something and instantly recognizing what it is through the 'hand' of it. It's just too tempting for me!
