Announcement   Welcome!
I offer custom made crochet items as well as patterns for both crochet and cross stitch.
The cross stitch patterns are made using a computer program. I have been cross stitching for 28 years.

My crochet patterns are designed by me with hook and yarn and a lot of trial and error. I add more patterns as I design them. Although I have been crocheting most of my life, I only began writing my own patterns a few years ago.

All crocheted items are hand crocheted by me, with over 40 years of experience behind every stitch and hours of work going into each piece. Most of my items are custom made when you order, but I do have a few that are ready to ship. When you order a custom piece, please note the time frame given until it will ship. This time allows me to get the yarn you choose, which sometimes has to be shipped to me, and to create your one of a kind item, which, in many cases, can take days or weeks.
If you don't see what you're looking for, send me a message and I'll see what I can do!

My custom-order scarf was made and shipped quickly, much faster than I had anticipated! The scarf knitting is great, strong but not too tight, and the colors were precisely what I was looking forward to. It's an extra-long scarf, at an incredible 11'+, and worked wonderfully for my cosplay. As a small critique, I do wish it had tassels as well. As a whole, it's an excellent scarf, and I definitely recommend Afghansoffthehook! Thank you! :3

Almost half done with the next one! This one's in bubblegum.
Ready for its new home! Shipping out this afternoon.
A lovely mommy-to-be and the beautiful custom crochet afghan the thoughtful grandma-to-be gave her (and her sweet boy) for Christmas! I just love getting these pictures!

About

Creations of a yarn junkie.

I learned to crochet at age six, taught by my mother and grandmother. That was over 39 years ago. I've been crocheting and cross stitching through, to date, 26 years of marriage, the raising of two sons, and several cross country moves; some because of the Army and some not.

I was told for a long time that I should sell my work, so when I discovered Etsy, I took that advice. I love that I can share my work with others!

Many of my creations are based in the designs of others, these very talented designers make my life easier, but some of the designs are mine.

The pictures in my shop aren't professional quality, I know, but I work with what I have. Everything I make, however, is of the best quality...it doesn't leave my hands unless it is! And every picture is of an item I, personally, have made.

Please feel free to contact me about anything. If you don't see what you're looking for, that doesn't mean I can't make it! Send me a message and I'll see what I can do!

    I am a wife and mother from the Midwest. I have been crocheting since I was six, when my grandmother first taught me to make a chain stitch. I have become increasingly addicted ever since!
