   I first started crocheting as a child, making scarfs and necklaces for my pets and friends. In 2012 when an illness made it hard to work I took a class to try a new type of crochet, amigurimi*. After that I was determined to make some lifelike sea animals that I grew up seeing on my favorite field trips. Soon after, Poli the Octopus was born. I couldn't do the typical cutesy baby looking stuffed animals though. It had to be different and edgy. Not normal. Octopi and other cephalopods have that cute, creepy, freaky look that is just so me. I have since expanded into other cephalopods and sea creatures, making them cute, colorful, and lifelike.

* Amigurumi is a term that covers the trend of crocheting and knitting stuffed animals, people or inanimate objects. The phrase itself encompasses the entire knitted and crocheted stuffed toy genre. The first part of the word means knit OR crochet and the second part means stuffed doll/toy. Essentially, it means "knitted/crocheted stuffed toy".
