Hey, everyone! I’m Jessica, the founder behind The Hook Nook, and I REALLY like to make pretty things. For the last several years I’ve gone from teaching myself to crochet, to selling my makes to friends and family, to opening an Etsy shop, to pattern designing and now I am so fortunate to have worked with some of the biggest brands and companies in the fiber industry from all around the world. You can now find my own The Hook Nook brand designer crochet hooks, yarn and craft accessories at in my online shop and at various retailers!

Knit A Little by Marie Greene



I am so excited!! My dear real-life friend, Marie Greene, has been such an incredible influence to me for the past several years. Her and I met at a yarn store here in Salem, OR when I decided to take my first step into a LYS (local yarn store). The prices of the yarn and the luxuriousness of the fibers intimidated me as I had exclusively used affordable acrylics I purchased from my local "big-box" retail craft store. Her and I immediately connected and became fast friends.

Over the last several years we have had the opportunity to attend various events together, work together in a coworking space in downtown Salem, and meet for our fair share of "wine-thirties" where we get some wine, delicious food and have the epitome of a community over competition friendship. It is something to be grateful for to have someone within your industry genuinely celebrate your wins with you and help you trudge through the struggles. Marie is a literal gem of a human and I am so grateful to have her in my life!

Today I am STOKED and BEYOND HONORED to be able to offer preorder sales for her new book, Knit A Little by Marie Greene, which is to be released on March 12, 2021!! Ahhhh!!! This is the THIRD book that Marie has published and each one only gets better and better. She is such a talented designer with a genuine story and connection to knitting that goes back to her childhood. She also chose to use The Hook Nook yarn for a couple of designs in the book and I'm just over here trying not to die of excitement. Scroll down to check out the designs she used with my yarn and learn more about her new book!!

Marie!!! CONGRATS!!!

— Stephanie Lotven, founder of Tellybean Knits and author of Knit Happy with Self-Striping Yarn

“The second I saw Marie Greene’s new book of children’s sweaters and hats, I was hooked! Who could resist knitting a BEEKEEPER sweater for a wee one to match the one that they have already knit for themselves? Or a WATERFALL sweater with that amazing center panel — Theo might need one of those. And the beanies…. Oh my, where to begin. Clearly Marie has outdone herself with yet another amazing “seamless knitting” book! I can’t wait to get knitting…”
