Doing your own thing

Maria never fails to teach us each week and to encourage us with our creativity. She had a beautifully knitted white beanie with her this week which she could have sold on the spot. It was so white and so soft. It was also striking and different. As it turns out , Maria has made up the knitting pattern herself and used her own stitch and just done what was in her heart and mind. She teaches us a lot about trusting our own judgement and just breaking free once in a while to let our own ideas take shape. Meanwhile she is knitting a beanie in spun wool. Same pattern and it looks totally different. It looks cobwebby and shows the difference between commercial and spun wool. Maria was teaching us about visual effect and how to change things so we can create visual interest.
