About me

Hi! I'm Julia. Welcome :)


I'm a 4th generation crochet artist and a self-taught knitter based in the California Bay Area.  I started The BackLoop to have a place devoted to knit and crochet accessories for you and your home.

Everything you'll find is simple, fun, useful and (of course) handmade.


When I'm not surrounded by yarn you'll find me at my day job (editing books), playing with my kids, teasing my husband or working in the yard (pretty much anything to avoid having to vacuum). After everyone's asleep I spend some quality time with my hooks, my needles, and my yarn.

You can also find my work at Modern Mouse in Alameda, CA and on Etsy at backloop.etsy.com


Interested in getting exclusive discount codes, first dibs on seasonal merchandise, and quarterly shop updates?

Of course you are! 


(honestly, it will just be a few times a year because nobody likes email clutter)

If you like what you see, tell you friends and come back often!

Create. Adore. Share. Repeat.
