About Me

Howdy! I'm Drew and I'm very happy that you are visiting my website! Here is a little about myself.

I'm the youngest of eight kids and come from a very crafty family. My daddy, the ex-marine WWII veteran was an amazing artist and crocheter. Mom crocheted too! Each of my siblings and I do crafty activities in some combination of crochet, knit, quilt, woodwork, cake decorating, cross-stitch, just to name a few.

A few years ago I started a little blog because all my friends were starting blogs of their own. I wanted mine to be about my favorite hobby which happened to be crochet. I called it The Crochet Dude and used it to show pics of the projects I was working on.

One thing led to another and before I knew it I was designing knit and crochet patterns full-time. I have nine books published to date, appeared in four seasons of the PBS t.v. show Knit & Crochet Now as the crochet expert, a line of my own signature hooks and tools available nationwide, I teach at fiber-related conferences as well as on cruises,  and just recently formed my own yarn company specializing in fine yarns hand-dyed in the USA.

Poke around my little website and see what you can find. I'm very glad that you are here!
