I gave up patterns.

I’m bored with ‘em. I have always felt guilty about using them – I don’t qualify it as an artistic endeavor if I am simply copying someone else’s work. I see the need for them in the beginning stages of knitting, but at this point I have learned enough about the craft to do some freestyling. Besides, I would NEVER consider using any kind of pattern or guide in any other art medium. Paint-by-numbers? Copy-and-paste.

I think this may be what separates the artists from the crafters.
