You guys saved my everloving knitting and crocheting butt if ya wanna know. I was on the very eve of destruction as the song goes. Now to keep us going and stayin alive stayin alive you must keep coming in and take a class or teach a class and buying yarn to keep the Purl here in Silverton. That's the only way it works for us to have the kind of shops we want and need in our lives. Homegrown, surviving and thriving that's us.
It's fall and the knitters are running rampant. TK and her gang have come up with another winner. Check out the naked sheep.com for the free cupcake hat pattern. It's a girly girl kid hat. Anyone make it for adults? We made it out of Plymouth's Cleckheaton pink DK AND CREAM PUNTA LAVA AND some fluffy Fizz from Crystal Palace. Use brown for chocolate and how about beading the top with bugle beads for sprinkles. A Cherry is a red felted ball...Beyond cuteness. I'll put a pic up soon.

This sample triangle shawl was made by, the Millstream Guild Member, Carol Richmond. This particular piece is made with Koigu Premium Merino yarn, but can be replaced with any hand-dyed, sock weight yarn. Multicolor skeins create beautiful and varied color patterns.
This is one of our newest patterns offered. It's meant for the beginning knitter, but creates professional results with use of the lace knit. Subtle effects make this shawl easy to make and easy to wear on a cool day.
