For the 2017 March for Science, I offered to make a brain hat for any of my friends who planned to attend a march. They really took me up on it! I knitted 12 brain hats in total in a month or two. That was a lot of I-cord to sew down! I used a watermelon as a mannequin head, but only for the first one.
Andy and I created this faux turf effect for his office door, and I knitted a bunch of ants to crawl all over it. There’s even a queen with a little crown!
This was pretty early on in my time crocheting amigurumi, and I was still doing it “inside out.”
I custom made these gloves for a friend who was born with two differently sized hands and has trouble finding gloves.
I also made a same-sized pair for another friend. This novelty yarn was understandably popular – SO SPARKLY!! ALL THE SEQUINS!
On a trip I took a couple years ago, I made 26 lemons for an awareness drive about how crafting can help people with stress or mental health trouble. It was such a good craft for traveling, and this topic is very close to my heart.
I designed this red panda hat for my trip to Nepal to look for wild red pandas! I also felted a lining for the hat so that it could keep me warm in the foothills of the Himalayas.
I designed this red panda bookmark. I like the way it peers out of the book and holds your place with its tail.
My husband loves tapirs, so I adapted an existing pattern to create one.
I designed and created these little amanita mushrooms for my mushroom-loving mom.
I customized this laptop cover for my husband, who designed the ant pattern on grid paper.
