Yo Yarnies,

Miranda is 8 today and we are partying down! Natalie her little sister,6, tells me to shhhhhhh a lot.
I am knitting on my First Cardigan. It has some boo boos that will soon be turning into design features! I will take a picture of all our First Cardigan class when I get home so you can see our progress.

We went to see Pirates of the Caribbean #3 this am at 10. It was Fab. You gotta see it.
I'm getting lots of ideas for the shop while my mind isn't cluttered with the everyday stuff. What would you think of a hand spa for knitters?

Talk later........

The Spinning "Knot So Plain Jane Designs" Skirt

She is Hannah a 14 year old giraffe child........ I (Celia) just caught her in between basketball,volleyball, and track to take a picture of this amazing Vogue pattern knit in Royal Bamboo,coral color. Hannah loves to spin in it cuz it is soooooo swirly with just the right weight. It was knit by The Purl District's, Secret Knitting Weapon,Jane Robbins of Knot So Plain Jane Designs.The skirt has like 660 stitches around the bottom rows. If you don't stab yourself in the eye before it's done you'll have a fab skirt.

We hope to see you and help you to explore both the shop and the city. Come for breakfast, shop, play in the creek with your dog, or even visit the Oregon Garden. There are lots of activities to do and things to see.

Eat lunch, relax and unwind at The Purl District, buy a book upstairs at Not Your Mamas Coffee, and hang out with us and knit or crochet. The Purl has yarns you've never seen before let alone touched, from the exotic to the sublime!

We have stainless steel, bamboo, corn, soy, linen paper, tencel, local angora, local alpaca, South African beaded mohair, our own line of hand-dyed linen, wool, silk, cotton and novelties. We'd like to be your treasure spot, the place you run away to!
