I explore my creative imagination through knitting and making things, I also give back to the world community as large by making toys, blankets, and other items such as clothing. The piece I’ve donated is a knitted cartoon character named Stewie. The cartoon is very popular among children and adults, including myself, and I hope that he could bring joy to someone else as he has brought to me.
