Who is the Giver?

"Love your neighbour as yourself".

This Fibre Muse uses knitting to make a difference in other people's lives. She is very compassionate, kind and understanding. She will prepare months in advance knitting up projects for her friends and family to give as gifts, because she understands the joy and thrill of receiving a hand-made piece. Even if she isn't always properly thanked (because non-knitters don't get the amount of time, effort and skill that goes into their gift!), knowing that she left a special mark in someone's life, lightning up their day, makes her happy and gives her a sense of purpose. In a world where there is not enough love and understanding, knitting is a way to help heal and serve others. During the holidays or any special event, she gets way more excited watching others open their gifts from her than she does receiving presents. A charitable soul, she believes in the importance of giving back to her community in anyway she came: through support businesses that share the same values as her, volunteering or supporting charity causes, or even just being a friend in need, a shoulder to cry on. But don't think that the Giver is a pushover. If there is an issue they care deeply about, they'll be the first ones to take action, speaking up and declaring their trust, protecting those who need protection. Some Givers may even use their craft as a form of activism, the driving force to make positive, powerful change.

This primary sense of giving to others, to improve other people's lives is what makes the Giver unique from her sister Muses, the Seeker, Dreamer and Mystic. While all Fibre Muses share aspects of each type, this drive to give and serve most strongly resonates in the Giver.
