i recently had the chance to see a old friend, who really inspires me, she is an insanely talented & creative lady who works so hard, & she said words she lives by are "don't take it personally", sounds simple right, but trust me, oh so hard to do. i've said it before, & her ei am saying it again, a lot of times i will be designing & thinking up new knits & can't wait to have it in the shop, to then second guess myself, & wonder will anyone else get it?! of course, i am also relieved & feel gratified in my own personal decisions of what i knit, when i see similar inspired items making their way onto street style blogs & in new fall magazines, so maybe i'm not as off as i think, & also i just won't take it personally, ect. i wanted to make these collages to almost reassure myself & to showcase my knits in a themed context, hope you like them & also hope it helps you see where i was coming from, & how it can work.
