Crochet Full Length Cloak Pattern
 When did you start creating?  We started crocheting about 5 years ago, around the time our Son/Grandson was born.

What is your most cherished handmade item?  Millie: My first blanket was for my husband, he sleeps with it every night!

Why did you choose your medium?  We love the soft feel and the beautiful colors of the yarn, as well as how easy it is to re-do a project (we are perfectionists by nature).

What inspires you?  We look for inspiration in nature, imagination and fellow crafters.
Jean Upcycled Medicine Bag
 Where do you create?  Anywhere and everywhere. We always have a crochet project with us everywhere we go.

Why did you choose your shop name?  We chose 2 Crochet Hooks because there are 2 of us and we use crochet hooks. Not exciting broken down but pretty catchy all together.

What are your goals?  We both would love someday to say that crocheting is how we earn all our income.
Crochet Cat Ear Hat
What do you do when you are not creating?  Kristina: I feel like I am always creating but I like to watch shows or read books while I am crocheting. I also like to sit on the beach or swim at the pool.
Millie: I also am always creating or thinking of how to make something, there just aren’t enough hours in the day! I love to read, watch tv and surf the web for inspiration.
