I had a conversation with a friend of mine the other day about what inspires me for designing. Having known me for 25+ years she's quite used to my usual level of insanity, plus she's a mental ward nurse too! After I had explained to her how the design process works for me, she exclaimed, "you really *do* hear yarn voices, don't you?" For some strange reason it got me thinking of the age-old editorial column, "Is there a Santa Claus?"
I'd like to know what inspires you? What drives you to create?
For me I get my ideas from anything and everything. Sometimes the yarn speaks to me and tells me what it wants to be. Other times I get a design idea and then the perfect yarn presents itself. My design process tends to be haphazard, like my life can be at times, but it works!
