Andrea crochets the most adorable animals and gnome-ish characters! I love how each character has its own expression and "attitude", so to speak.
What I like most about Andi's story is her honesty. Here is what she writes about herself and her art:
I must confess: I adore crocheting. For me is a way to express myself, my creativity, my undamped fever to creation. I became passionate for the huge amount of pleasure it brings to me.
But it was't so always. When I was child, I often saw my grand-grandmother crocheting in her spare time. She often asked me to sit aside her. But I never thought that this needlework could be so joyfull for me. I didn't learn crocheting from her. I'm very sorry about that. But when I became mother I wanted to make for my children beautiful things and I remembered what wonderful stuffs has been made by her. And I tried. And I maked my first amigurumi, a little dino for my older boy. For then I haven't been able to stop.
Here are a few of my favourites from crochAndi:
I love this lion's mane!
And if you can't decide on one animal, here is a collection of mini animals - what a great way to use your imagination!
