Purlwise History

"I have been crafting all my life and was taught to knit literally at my grandmothers knee. Since then I have turned my hand to a variety of crafts including knitting, crochet, spinning, weaving, cross-stitch, quilting and so on. I have always enjoyed making something that I can use or wear.  It gives me a great sense of satisfaction. My greatest hope is that I can now help others get that same feeling. I am also pleased to see knitting, crochet and other crafts are making a huge comeback. There are so many wonderful patterns and beautiful yarns available now from retro and vintage styles all the way through to modern, colourful knits.  There really is something for everyone."
