My First Blog Post

Welcome to Berry Hooked!

Welcome to Berry Hooked! I am very excited to start my first blog; and about crochet! I have been crocheting for nearly 20 years and started designing patterns a few years ago. I love to design clothing items for myself, my girls, and family. I love the sense of pride that comes from making something with my own two hands! I would love to spread that same joy to others through their makes.

About me:

Here is the yoda design that got my etsy shop started!

I am Jessica and I am married to my amazing husband Mark and have two beautiful girls; Ellina and Brienne. I am sure you will see plenty of photos of them modeling designs! I have always been an entrepreneur. From a young age, I was always looking to create new businesses I could provide for close friends and families. One of my first businesses started when I was 13, I crocheted fuzzy yarn onto flip flop straps to make them more comfortable! It was so fun and a great way for me to dip my toe into a crochet business. In 2013 I was pregnant with my eldest daughter, Ellina, and had some success selling ear warmers to friends for Christmas. I decided to sell them on Etsy! I posted them and expected the sales to start rolling in but nothing happened. I added a few more items here and there, but I only made a few dollars. I was so discouraged and started to think nothing would happen, but in the fall of 2014 I designed a yoda hat and diaper cover and then sales finally started to happen!
