Do you see yourself as an artist or craftsperson?

For me, it depends on the project...for example when I make my standard by-the-pattern baby sweater for a friend I feel crafty, and when I design/customize something myself I feel artistic, like it really says something about me.

 Liz,

I completely agree with you on this one. I feel my "work" to be a complete mixture of craft and art. However, I feel reluctant to call myself an artist, but I really couldn't explain why that is. It feels a little presumptuous. But then I am proud of my work and have put it into group exhibitions and shown my things at show and tell sessions.......... So, logically I should call myself an artist unless I am following someone else's design.
