I see myself as a very creative person. Does not mean that what I create looks good but I have this urge to make things, to see something like liquid oil becaming solid soap, a string of yarn becaming a garment or blanket, a ingredient transforming itself into beautiful food. A few months ago I got a part time job in a local Yarn Shop. Ignoring my inability to knit and the fact that I was just learning to crochet Joanne (from Yarn with Joanne in Newtownards ) gave me a chance to work with herself and her team. She has a very community and well being aproach to her business and it has being a place of refuge as well as learning and financial provision. What a blessing and opportunity it has being to watch and learn with amazing people, share life stories and have my urge of creating and exploring creativity pacified. I resort to crochet and knitting as a way to explore my creativity but also to develop my brain skills and excercise new learning. It has being very therapeutic in a way as I felt a bit blue last year and yarn craft is opening my heart/eyes to see a whole new coloured life. What about you? Do you have any urge to create?
