Every shawl I knit is different. My intent is not to make a copy of the designer’s result. I almost never use the yarn stated in the pattern. And I often stray from the knitting recipe — either on purpose or with an unintentional customization. To me, knitting is a creative process. I am the only me, and I desire my knitted results to be unique as well. I endeavor to let the Spirit inside guide me as I create. I love being surprised in the creative process. The result is always beautiful in its own way.
