Remember Sara who was a volunteer at the Purl? She is in Amsterdam going to school for her Masters with her Boyfriend.They are coming home to USA, well right now, and will be in the shop in January. Check out your emails for exact time or look at the class schedule calender on The Purl site. Isn't this a beauty of a picture? Sara is busy with school mostly but is involved in a knitting group with a lot of famous knitters . Their names escape me right now! Evidently they are VERY serious about what they do. Well, you won't find that at The Purl. We're serious about knitting but not about ourselves. We do have fun! Stop in and unwind. Don't forget the Super Bowl Sunday Sale and Frolic. Toodles,Celia

Linda Kirsch is sashaying around Europe for awhile so she's not at the every Wed. Free spinning time 1-3pm, here at The Purl District. Here's a picture of where the group she is leading is staying. They check out fiber farms, dyeing, and handspinning. Linda says no yarn shops except a little yarn in dress shops. Linda met Mrs. Lamborghini and is going to invite her to come and knit with us in Silverton at the Big Red table. Evidently Mr.L sold the car biz and bought a golf club and spa where the Mrs. hangs and knits. Mr. L.has since passed on.
Have fun and see you soon ,Linda
Celia, jealous in Silverton

Baby Brudder Bobble before and after pix. You ask before and after what? a train wreck? no Before is a non-knitter,after as a knitter! Don't know what to tell ya. My family is SPECIAL.
Mostly he designs and builds bikes and scooters out of re-cycled parts. His site is omahgarsh.blogspot.com.Crazy clown bikes,tall bikes,scooters out of crates,long skateboards,etc. He sells them and plans to teach a re-cycled upgraded bike workshop thru the Silverton Art Association this summer.

I know Gma Laurie I haven't put anything new up for awhile. Here's Lisa Jorgenson's latest project. She is writing the original pattern for all to buy at The Purl District. It is knit from Crystal Palace Mochi Plus worsted in what I call "Eugene" colorway. It's really called radiant rainbow. Very cool earflap hat.Lisa has fitted it to the face and forehead very well so it envelops your face. It has ridges at the top an I-cord from the crown with optional tassels or Pom Pom. Come in and check it out.
