I love crocheting through the back loop when I'm making my stuffed animals. I like the texture of the fabric it makes, I find it easier on my wrists and I love that the ridges help with attaching pieces. It was very unusual when I started designing, but now it's catching on!
What do you love most about being a crochet designer, author, and teacher?
I love empowering others to create something for themselves. It's a wonderful feeling to make something from scratch, and I love that I get to help people do that.
I design things that are cute, big and fairly easy to do. I'm not one for fussy details or complicated instructions.
Which of your designs is your favorite? (if you had to choose...)
Oh, probably Nelson the Owl! It's hard to choose, though :) I also love my Dragon Adventure and Spikey the Stegosaurus. But, I love them all :)
I have a lot happening at FreshStitches! I've been working on bringing lots of different craft kits to the site, and I have a Mystery CAL planned for April :)
