 „I hope to sweep people of their feet as many as I can with my designs. My purpose with my Instagram account and my designs is to show people that there is so much more you can create with crochet and personalize that with my absolutely-not-so-glamorous life experiences. I hope this relates to my fellow crocheters, or at least give you a laugh.”- says Kwannie.
