About Me

Hello, crafters! My name is Alex, and in case you couldn’t guess, I’m a big yarny geek. I am SO INCREDIBLY PUMPED that you are here!

I’m here to help you unleash your inner geek and expand your crafting potential by providing lots of FREE patterns so that you can let your nerd flag fly!

Over the last four years of this site’s geekery, I’ve hosted half a dozen crochet along projects and made about a hundred (!) little dolls based on my favorite fandom characters (like Wonder Woman, Captain Janeway, the Winchester brothers, and so many more)!

I have also been featured in Crochet! magazine, AllFreeCrochet, Crochet Now magazine, and on these lists of the Top 80 and Top 100 crochet blogs.

When I’m not crocheting, I’m usually curled up on the couch watching Marvel movie marathons with my husband or trying out a new recipe (I’m a terrible cook, but I don’t let that stop me!). I spend most of my free time either crocheting or knitting, designing new patterns, or drooling over Chris Hemsworth–because who doesn’t, right?

My biggest goal is to spread the yarn-crafting love (and hopefully a little bit of geekery) around the globe. So far, Yarn Geekery (previously Yarn Geek Makes and Two Hearts Crochet) has reached over 170 countries on 6 continents. How crazy cool is that? Click here to read more about Yarn Geekery’s continuing mission.

If you would like to join me in my quest for geeky world domination, just click the link at the bottom of this page and join the crafty goodness – I’d love to have you be part of the Yarn Geek Makes family!

Looking for some great geeky projects? Check out some of my awesome graphghan projects. I’ve got everything from Doctor Who to Harry Potter to Disney! You also might want to check out the list of upcoming crochet along projects or the patterns page for even more crafty inspiration. I also have some great crafter resources, especially for anyone looking to learn the C2C method. They’re worth a look!

I’d love to hear from you! If there is anything in particular that you would like to see here on the blog, please let me know.
