    Do you object to the way this article used the word “craft” instead of “art”? Where do you feel on that continuum knitting falls? And where does making a tailored suit or an evening gown? Or a hand-carved toy?

    Have you experienced this “flow”? What did it feel like to you? How do you get to that point? What do you call it?

    I find this is a point in the project when all the distractions I feel stop teasing me away and I can work smoothly.
