How it all began… Crochet
I started crocheting in 2006 after I quit smoking. One day in 2012 I was challenged to make a knit gnome; a cute little guy without distinguishing features, save for a gnome’s signature hat.
I thought, ‘What if he had, at least, a beard and eyes?’ So I made him some features and then thought, ‘What if he had more detail?’
What happened after that was a version of Merlin with a crochet beard. What happened after that was a slew of knit and crochet dolls from the general variety (French Painter, Scarecrow, etc.) to popular characters (Jack Sparrow, The Big Lebowski, Breaking Bad, The Walking Dead, etc.)
