About Ashlea of Heart Hook Home:

My name is Ashlea Konecny and I am a wife, mother of two young boys, and yarn enthusiast. I also love to read, and since that isn’t conducive to crochet, I spend most of my crochet time listening to audio books while I work. I would spend every day “reading” and crocheting if I could!

My passion for crochet started about five years ago when my little brother Forrest taught me to crochet over the Christmas holiday. Something he told me during our first lesson that I’ve never forgotten: “it’s just one strand of yarn, you can’t screw it up so badly that you can’t rip it out and start again”. He was right, and I haven’t been able to put down the hook since!

Since starting Heart Hook Home, I have been featured on Country Living, Martha Stewart, in Chickens magazine, Homespun magazine, Wichita magazine, and on Buzz Feed and Little Things. I am thrilled to have reached millions and millions of like-minded fiber enthusiasts!
