I'm always nervous to take on commissions of real people or pets, because I feel there's a heightened responsibility to capture their likeness. Imagine the caution I took when a new mother asked me to crochet Tai, her nine month old baby -- I was nearly as nervous to make her as I would be to hold her.

I was told that it's a birthday present for April, so I'm eagerly waiting to see photos of real Tai and little Tai together then!
