Amy O'Neill Houck

I’m a writer and crochet and knitwear designer. I learned to crochet at the age of eight from my grandmother, and never stopped.

I blog at The Hook and I about fiber, food and life in coastal Alaska where I live with my family. I’m a former co-editor of Inside Crochet magazine, and I’m the author of The Color Book of Felted Crochet, Creative Homeowner Publishing, Inc., Knits for Bears to Wear, a book of knits for teddy bears, dolls and toys of all sorts published in 2008 by Potter Craft, and its companion book, Crochet for Bears to Wear.
