"I liked the way I felt her grow when she started experimenting and combining yarn colors. She mostly worked with white and yellow first. One day, she brought home a packed, regular-sized red plastic bag containing balls of different-colored yarn. She showed me the yarn side-by-side each other and asked my opinion on her color choices. Then she came up with all these interesting patterns. My mom was an artist all on her own."
