Guy with the Hook (Mark)

Hi there! I’m the guy with the hook but also known as Mark. A young guy that lives in the Netherlands. If we talk about a crochet addiction I guess I have to admit I’m a victim too. I almost crochet and knit for over more than 10 years now and it is part of my life. Through the years I have made so many things, worked on so many projects, and learned so many new techniques and patterns. On this blog, I will share and tell about my crochet life and maybe some other stuff as well once in a while. I hope you enjoy it and you are free to follow and read my journey! https://theguywiththehook.com/
