What was your inspiration?
I made a giant spider and web for a bay window. I had made long strands for hanging it up. I had nothing to wear to a halloween party that year and so I tied it to myself and wore my window decoration as a shawl. I had many comments on my window hanging so I decided to make an actual shawl. Then the next year I decided I needed a hat to go with the costume. The spider was designed to fit my window hanging and also works for my shawl.
What are you most proud of?
I would have to say the hat as I did the whole thing from scratch.
