Taking the steps to become a professional crochet designer was more an act of unemployed desperation than inspiration. None the less, taking the craft to this higher level has brought a tremendous sense of fulfillment to my intellectual love of geometry and spiritual desire for artistic creation along with finding an unexpected use of my education in writing and editing.
