My Story

Kristy Howe - Howe Thoughtful CrochetMy name is Kristy Howe, and when I was 6 years old my mother taught me to crochet. Ever since then, I have been crocheting every chance I get. I am a stay-at-home mother to two rambunctious boys and am married to a very supportive husband.

I have been very involved in my sons’ schools, in both the Parent Teacher Union and as room mom. There are always crochet projects all over my house (on trips, in the car, at my sons’ baseball games, camping, etc.). My family is very used to yarn being everywhere.  When I am not crocheting, I enjoy running and participating in 5k’s up to half marathons.  I hope one day to do a full marathon.

I began competing in county fairs over 15 years ago and have won numerous awards. Just in the past couple of years, I have enjoyed creating and designing my own scarves, hats, afghans and baby items. There is nothing like having a design come to life with just an idea, my hands, a hook and yarn. I also enjoy participating in craft fairs and selling my handmade items. It is such a joy to see others enjoy my hard work.
