New? Start Here! -

Hi, there!

My name is Jerica Tompkins and I am a self-taught crocheter and knitter. Back in 2009, I started on a journey with teaching myself how to crochet. The desire was started by wanting to be able to make things for my children. I have always loved to work with my hands and after having babies I wanted to be able to make things for them to play with, wear and wrap up in!

Over the last two years, I have begun learning to knit. I can honestly say, I have fallen in love with knitting! I couldn’t tell you what exactly it is I love so much, but, it’s a skill I work at every day to improve!

I started as a way to grow in these areas of making. The desire to grow YHN into a profitable business is there too! My ultimate desire is to eventually open my own yarn shop here in Wichita, Kansas.

We have big dreams for this company and I’m so excited to share this journey with you!

Every day you will see new posts of patterns, projects and more. All of them meant to inspire you in your own creativity as well as encourage you to try new things and maybe even finish some projects you might have started a while ago.

In the new year we will be launching our official YouTube channel, YHN Studios and there you will find fun daily tutorials of knitting and crochet stitches as well as projects.

We also have our very first Crochet Kit launching in the new year where you will receive a custom Yarn|Hook|Needles Canvas bag as well as tools, yarn and more to complete either a chunky baby blanket or chunky infinity scarf.

We love to learn and grow in our skills and abilities here are YHN and we hope to take this company that started out as nothing more than idea in a mama maker’s head and see it become a household name some day!

Thanks for stopping by today too! Leave a comment, send me an email or just simply browse around and enjoy the hundreds of posts we have available for you here on YHN!
