It seems this past week I have spent more time reading blogs and books about knitting and creativity than actually creating anything. This brings me to express my gratitude and appreciation for so many talented and generous people I've come to know through published work and especially through the internet. This creative community of wonderful people who share their triumphs and occasional failures, who learn and teach from their successes and mistakes. All of us from different backgrounds and cultures unite without a thought to political or religious affiliations. It's an ideal world for me.
There are so many who have given pleasure and knowledge I can repeatedly turn to, to feed my creative needs. I can, in turn, share so much of this with people who have the same interests, and sometimes bore those who tolerate my passion and excitement for things that can be made with needles, yarn, metal, fabric, stones and... well the list goes on. Thank you.
And then there is family. I am fortunate enough to have a strong and close knit family. Add to this my small circle of friends and I can say I am truly blessed.
