About Ellen Gormley

Yarn Thing Podcast Guest Ellen Gormley

When Ellen was 10 she designed her first crochet project, a 3 dimensional Rubik’s Cube made of granny squares. Although she doesn’t remember who exactly taught her to crochet it started to seep into her consciousness from an early age from her mom.

As a teenager Ellen abandoned crochet only to pick it back up again while in graduate school.  Before taking on crochet designing as a full time career Ellen was a mental health counselor for several years. Even while counseling, she used crochet as a therapeutic tool with clients who struggled with depression and anxiety.

In 2004, after stitching more than 80 afghans, Ellen’s designing career started.  Over the past 15 years she has sold more than 325 designs and been published numerous times in many crochet magazines including Interweave Crochet, Crochet Today, Crochet!, Crochet World and Inside Crochet.
