Hooked Knitting is a small local yarn shop located in the heart of Essex, Massachusetts among the many restaurants and plentiful antiquing that makes this part of the North Shore so unique. We carry a wide selection of yarn and notions for all levels of knitting, crochet, and rug hooking, as well as a variety of handmade items for sale. We specialize in repairing heirloom knit and crochet items. Special orders are always welcomed!

With knitting as my passion, I decided to open my own store over 3 years ago. It's been so much fun meeting new people and sharing my love of knitting and rug hooking. Shortly after opening I met a fellow artisan, Marlys Vaughan, who's specialty is crochet. Marlys has been teaching here at Hooked ever since we met! The opening of Hooked has let me explore my dream of creating a place where people can come in and sit and knit a while, find wonderful fibers to work with and create beautiful items. I am so thankful for the people I've met and the friendships I've made and I look forward to doing so for many years to come!
