About Gnarlea


I'm Nikki and I'm the yarn lady around here. When I'm not crocheting, I can be spotted on my couch crocheting, outside crocheting, or thinking about crocheting. Seriously.. I love this stuff. 

I started crocheting in 2014 after a nasty back injury left me unable to work. My mom is a fiber artist and encouraged me to try something that, upon finishing, would make me feel proud. I began my yarn journey with hats and blankets but eventually felt "burnt out" on making the same things over and over. Once I started streaming, I felt like I had a bit more freedom to experiment with my work in an attempt to create more original pieces.

My first LiveStream was 9/16/18, an incredibly terrifying experience considering I can barely take a family photo. I have worked towards building a creative community in nearly every town I've lived in since I started my yarn journey.. but was discouraged by the lack of interest I was receiving. Streaming has given me the platform to show what I love to do and meet other people who enjoy watching and doing it too.

The fact that you are even here, reading this awful bio about me makes my little heart swell with the luvs. Your support is immeasurable and, whether you pledge or not, I appreciate you so much!
