Andrea Hoglen took up yarn work to help her deal with the stress of working a full-time job while going to school full time. That was almost a decade ago. Since then, she has learned to both knit and crochet, design her own crochet patterns, and she even finished her doctorate! Andrea loves small projects that you can tackle in a weekend, as well as unique projects that you won't find in a store. She loves being at a mall or a fair and seeing something being sold, thinking to herself, "I could totally make that!".
Though she generally prefers to crochet, some of Andrea's favorite projects are knit, including her pirate hat and her Jayne Cobb hat. Her favorite things to crochet include shawls and shrugs, since they are such a classic thing to have. Most of her projects become gifts for others because there is so much love put into a handmade piece. One day Andrea might sell or commission her work, but until then, all her patterns are free!
