Thanks to the few of you for voting on my poll about changing my username. It helped me make my decision.

I was thinking recently that I had outgrown my username, bandotaku. I picked it when I was in my sophomore year of high school; I was about as geeky as they come and a self-titled "otaku." I also loved playing trumpet in the band. So I thought up the name "bandotaku" and patted myself on the back for being very clever. 

But I focus mostly on my crochet now, and frankly... I've outgrown my anime phase and I didn't want to have otaku in my name anymore. I'm also not in the band. So it will be nice to have my Etsy, Tumblr, and Deviantart match with the same username now. In case anyone is interested in the backstory behind Miles of Crochet, I had a cat a few years ago named Miles; sweet little black-and-white cat. When I opened my Etsy shop, I thought it would be a cute nod to his name and a play on words to call my shop Miles of Crochet. Again, I patted myself on the back for having thought of another clever name. Sadly, he was shot and killed in 2013, but I still love the name in his memory. (I now have a fat black-and-white cat named Maggie, but "Maggie of Crochet" doesn't quite work as nicely... ;))

So, that's about it. Thanks to everyone who's been watching me over the years or who have just added me to their watch recently! I really appreciate all of the positive feedback I get, DA really is a lovely community of people. Sorry I haven't been very active lately. In case you have a Tumblr, I tend to be a little more active on there (blog name "milesofcrochet"). Thanks again for reading!

If you have any cool projects you're working on, tell me about them!

I've had a deep love for art, drawing, and all things crafts since I was a little girl. I joined DeviantArt in 2008 to share my drawings with others, but in 2009 I picked up a book on amigurumi (crochet stuffed animals). I gave it a try and was immediately "hooked." ;) It has taken years to get to where I am now, but my love for this hobby has not faded yet, and I continue to enjoy making things that make people smile. I do still draw, paint, and occasionally sculpt, but for the past few years my focus has been crochet.

Most of the plush toys I crochet have been designed by me. I create and sell my own patterns as well as take occasional commissions. Due to time and life getting in the way, I don't advertise or take many commissions, but if you're interested, please send me a message I will happily respond.

I'm so glad that I can share my work with others and receive their feedback and critiques. Thanks for visiting!
