Lately I've been really interested in the creative process (that's what happens when you take an engineering class), and one of the tools I've been learning to work with is mind mapping. It is a really useful skill to help structure ideas or brainstorm.
Lately I've also been stuck on the idea of why do I create? I've always been interested in learning new things, but up until now, I had never really developed a creative skill. So, there must be a reason for why I have continued not only to knit, but to learn new skills related to knitting.
Eager to practice my new mind mapping skill, I decided to explore why it is that I feel the need to create. Why is it that producing handmade objects has become a priority in my life?
Obviously, this is a difficult question to answer, but the fiber arts continue to have such a positive effect on my life and I'm glad that I stuck with it and continued to explore.
