About Two Hearts Crochet!

blog-pic-1Hello, crafters! My name is Alex, and I’m a big yarny geek.

I’m excited you’ve come to visit our little corner of the blogosphere! Would you like some tea, Earl Grey, hot? How about some fish fingers and custard? Maybe a slice of pie?

My top favorite loves include baby alpaca yarn, Star Trek, Doctor Who, super villains in general, Furls Crochet hooks, Harry Potter, and pie. I cannot list all the yarny and geeky things I love here because, let’s face it, that list is so long that you’d need a big old cup of raktajino to get through every item.

This blog is run by myself and is constantly supported and encouraged by my husband, Collin. He too is a lover of all things geeky. His last name is Mikkelborg, and when we were engaged, he used to joke, “I am the Borg, the Mikkelborg. You will be assimilated. Resistance is futile.” Clearly, we were made for each other.

blog-pic-2My Borg King is always there for me to bounce questions off of, and he’s also a lighting and technical guru, so he eagerly assists me in coming up with new and budget-friendly ways to improve my projects and this blog.

Together, we are Two Hearts Crochet. (And also, the Doctor has two hearts. So, timelord.)

And we are SO INCREDIBLY PUMPED that you are here! Our philosophy is that everyone can learn to crochet–yes, including you! We’d also like to believe that everyone can learn to knit, but I’m still fighting that uphill battle myself. Stay tuned for more knitting catastrophes adventures!

If you’re looking for some great geeky projects, check out some of our awesome crochet-along projects. We’ve got everything from Doctor Who to Harry Potter to Disney! You also might want to check out our list of upcoming CALs or the patterns page for even more crafty inspiration.

We also have some great crafter resources, especially for anyone looking to learn the C2C method. They’re worth a look!

Our biggest goal is to spread the yarn-crafting love (and hopefully a little bit of geekery) around the globe. So far, we’ve reached over 170 countries on 6 continents–crazy! If you would like to join us in our quest for geeky world domination, please click on the “Join the geekery!” button at the top-right of this page. We’d love to have you be part of the Two Hearts Crochet family!

We’d love to hear from you! If there is anything in particular that you would like to seek here on the blog, please let us know.


If you are another blogger who would like to feature a Two Hearts Crochet pattern or tutorial, please do so! Please use only 1-2 photos and include a link back to the original Two Hearts Crochet page for the full tutorial/pattern.

Please do not re-print/post any tutorials or patterns in full or claim the photos as your own. That’s just uncool.
