Welcome to Hook It Yourself. I can’t quite believe that after years of dreaming and months of planning that my monthly subscription service is up and running. I thought I would take a little time to introduce myself and explain a bit more about Hook It Yourself.
I’m Sarah, a 30 something crochetholic, yarn hoarder and chronic WIP accumulator! I’m also a mummy to 2 beautiful little children, my eldest, Theo who lives in heaven and my pint-sized mini-me, Olivia, a complete whirlwind of a toddler. My life here in little old Wigan is pretty much perfect. The crochet subscription idea came about when I was on maternity leave after having Theo. I was in a bad place after he passed away and crochet became my escape, my therapy, but I felt unable to go out and purchase what I needed. I wasn’t ready to face the world. It was my mum who brought me patterns and yarns to work with and she was able to choose some beautiful things for me. Yarns in colours that I would never normally use, patterns that could be used for either gender, buttons and embellishments that completed the item perfectly. It became an absolute pleasure to open the carrier bag she brought.
I slowly got better and the dream began to take shape. A box delivered every month containing everything a keen crocheter needs to create an item. Everything would be a mystery, a complete surprise!
Fast forward 3 years and here we are! Hook It Yourself has launched and my dream becomes a reality. I honestly cannot wait till the first boxes are shipped.
