Welcome to my shop. Please browse through the many listings for that special home-crafted item. If there is something in particular that you would like that's not in the right colour or an item you want but can't find in my shop, please message me.
Here are some things just listed by other crafters and sellers on Folksy.
My crochet journey began with being taught by my Nan from a young age. I have always been a creative person but came back to crochet following the birth of my son. I quickly discovered that crochet is an amazing outlet for creativity and (when going well) a great reliever of stress. As my yarn collection and box of completed projects grew, I decided to look into selling online. In 2013 I set up my online shop with folksy. My shop now has a wide variety of items ranging in size and price.
I follow a long and inspiring tradition of craft spanning hundreds of years. Times have changed but the hand-crafting of beautiful items has not. There is an increasing recognition and appreciation for hand-made items that have been crafted with love and skill. My items are not produced for any other reason than they inspire me, the design, texture, colour. One of the reasons you will find few items the same in the shop is because each crochet project is special. Once complete, it leads organically on to something new and so a HappyHook crochet item will generally be unique to you.
My products are made from a selection of different yarns to match their purpose and design. Each HappyHook item has a creative inspiration behind it. In many cases, these are produced or adapted from patterns available online or through publications. These patterns invariably have a story attached as to how the designer came to create them. Out of respect for this process, I always acknowledge the designer by name in the shop listings. Likewise, where one person's design has formed the basis of a product adapted by myself that initial inspiration is also fully credited.
All of the items I create are made in my home which is both pet and smoke free. The yarn prior to making the items has either been stored by myself at home or has been purchased just prior to use from one of the many yarn shops online or locally.
