Inspiration















ome of the images I collected for inspiration over the years are accessible. I await the time when I'm reunited with my possessions that I kept in storage for many years. I will add those inspiring pieces and the photographs and art from earlier travels and experiences.


Images are from my sketchbooks, collected over years from various resources.

Autumn is exciting because of its color palette. Nature's last song is beautiful to watch as it begins, crests, and fades. These inspiring images were shot by Nathan Farb. I clipped then from the New Yorker magazine published in 1985. I did not record the month, volume or number. It was the same issue I found Kaku Kurita's image of traditional Japanese kimonos.

Inspiration comes from colors and fabrics. Textures like wet paint on a surface serve as possible looks I might attempt to duplicate in knitting or crocheting.


Some ideas are never realized. Perhaps they were not meant to be.

The zebra sweater pattern, complete with a black and white mane along the sleeve, was for my little sister. She is now raising two children of her own in a ten plus year marriage.

Mom Was Inspiration

My mother taught me how to knit, crochet, and sew when I was ten years old. She'd complain about the clicking needles. It was difficult to knit quietly.


I've collected several pairs of needles, many of the same gauge. It made it easy to work on other projects that used the same gauge.


I displayed them in an empty quart size Dannon yogurt container. Plain yogurt with Grape Nuts and honey was a staple. Recycling some of the many containers seemed to be the thing to do. The container was perfect. The needles looked like colored branches.


It was interesting to learn that some knitters had allergic reactions to aluminum. Bamboo or plastic may be popular with them. Aluminum needles allow the work to slide. That does not always work for me though I use them for that reason because I tend to knit loose.

Channeling Inspiration

From a healing facilitated by Raphael Azariel di Angelo in Healing Session 1:

"She refers to herself as a Master Healing Goddess so you may ask the Divine Source of All Creation to introduce you to the Master Healing Goddess and she will teach you many things. She's actually using tuning forks on you and these things that look like crochet needles. But they're not they are much finer actually.

"She laughs though- she said "Where do you think she got her idea to knit?"

"And she says they've been trying to teach you through your knitting for a very long time but you get lost in it that you often can't hear but the knitting itself.

"..and all you need to do is pick up something you knitted and hold it, and just ask," What was I to learn as I made this?" And things will come into your head. The more you do it, the longer you do it, the more detailed, the more will come and it can be the same piece. It doesn't matter. But there's all kinds of information about reality, about dimensional reality, how it all connects, all kinds of information, your brain would love (laugh) within the experience of knitting.

"Also she says the technique she's doing is extremely ancient. Long forgotten on our world but still used in extraterrestrial civilizations.

She's not actually puncturing the skin with these needles. It's like she's finding acupuncture points and then sending the vibration. She'll hit the tuning fork and then set it at the end of the needle and these are really very long they go very narrow but by the end they get as wide as the tuning fork or at least a little wider. And she sends the vibrations into specific points by utilizing--you can place the tuning fork right on the body but it sends a general wave. This pinpoints."


Other ideas came through physical images and mental images. Keeping little blank books to write the ideas helps. It is also about when it's written - within hours, days,or weeks- and dated because time has to be set aside to do it. Anything could become a design patent. The French cords woven through crocheted and/or knitted garments I call hybrids started to take shape from objects in 1985 to clothes in 2000.

My Husband and Inspiration

Inspiration was not limited to images, or things. Clem, my husband is my inspiration. He was my birthday gift several years ago. He saw my work and had more positive things to say about it than I.

His encouragement then and now fuel my imagination in terms of creating and also remembering the market for whom the work is produced. Clem's dedication to small business entrepreneurs is constant. He always wants to help people realize their dreams. Clem's riches is in helping others succeed. How much more inspired can you get than that?

The idea for the above coat was a plastic tissue box that was cut with multi-faceted patterns.


In silence one hears the sounds of creation.

One finds memory.

Without silence, you cannot know Love.

Love is the essence of all creation, the natural sound.

All of these harmonic proportions are creation, the essences of Love.

To be found in the silence – where the sounds of creation reside.

Notice how things feel, when created from this place, instead of Ego.

See the Light.

da Vinci: ”…every part is disposed to unite with the whole, that it may thereby escape from its incompleteness.”

Our purpose in Spirit- through Love.

Grace: ”Mercy and the Divine gift of Love, spring from the relatedness of all that exists.” from Weil, Simone, Gravity and Grace, p. 102
