Crochet me




As I've said before, I love to knit and make things in general but my only foray into crochet has resulted in a beard. Reading an interview with Shauna Richardson in DazedDigital made me feel entirely inadequate on the woollen front.

She has created lifesize, crocheted versions of animals - inspired by taxidermy. Including a hare, moose head and bear. They are incredible, capturing the essence of the animal in crochet. I am incredibly impressed and feel the urge to craft.

More information can be found on her website and the interview can be found here.
