About two years ago, I started to knit a hat. I had about 2 inches made before I made several big mistakes, which I cannot fix. Now I’m trying to gather up the courage to rip it all apart and start over. Undoing my knitting is a big decision!

Although I have many years of formal education, most of what I've learned has come from experimenting and trying to solve problems on my own. Once an idea for a project is set in my mind, it is all-consuming and one must learn everything possible about the subject on the way to the outcome. For learning is more than reading books and spoken word, it is hours of frustration, trial and error, and one sudden flash of insight when the world magically makes sense. It is during this moment when I am truely alive.
