Creativity means different things to every individual. For me, creativity is the act of CREATING something, using just the power of my not-inconsiderable brain.
the use of the imagination or original ideas, especially in the production of an artistic work.
I have wasted many, many hours scouring the Internet for crochet patterns to match the vision I have in my head of items I want to produce. What a load of rubbish! What I mean is, I am working really hard to reinvent the wheel. Why would anyone want to do that?
I have created my own patterns for crocheted items previously. Click here and here for examples of patterns available for digital download through my Etsy Store.
So, I am now working on a pattern for fingerless gloves, or more precisely, fingerless mittens because there is a thumb hole, but not individual holes for fingers. I have ripped out stitch after stitch in an effort to create my patterns.

Yeah, I know what you’re saying. It doesn’t look like a glove or a mitten or anything else recognizable. Well, maybe half of an orangutan mitten, but why would anyone want to put mittens on an orangutan?
