Any new projects you want to tackle? I would like to start crocheting clothes. I have a baby niece and I want make little cardigans and dresses for her! I'm a little nervous though because I mostly crochet animals. My one non-animal project was a blanket that turned out completely lopsided, but I'm up for a challenge!
Why do you craft? I craft because I've always enjoyed making things with my hands and it's a nice break from my day job. I graduated almost a year ago with a degree in animation and it has been tough trying to get in the field, but keeping busy with new crochet projects and working on my own stop motion animation keeps me sane and going creatively. I think it's really important to stay productive because even the smallest steps can lead to bigger and better ideas.
