Hello, and thanks for stopping by! My name is Katie Clary, the face behind Salty Pearl Crochet.
My journey with crochet began in 2010, through a craft group I started with some dear friends in Okinawa, Japan. On my second turn to host, I visited a ¥100 shop and couldn’t resist the colorful yarn and shiny hooks. Plus, as a thrifty military spouse, ¥200 ($2) a head seemed too good to be true!
Here they are, in all their glory! Acrylic yarn that was so splitty I almost quit, and 2mm and 7mm hooks. (That’s not even an American hook size! I had so much to learn.) I’m still amazed that an impulse buy like that has turned into a full blown fiber addiction and a lifelong hobby.
Six years and two kidlets later, I’m finally ready to take the plunge into blogging and pattern design. I have learned so much from reading my favorite crochet blogs and I hope to pay it forward with tips and tutorials to help you improve your crocheting and inspire you to take the next step in your journey.
All the best,
