How Knit Purl Staff “Get Cozy”

For the final week in the Month of Me, we’re focusing on ways to ease out of the long work week (don’t get us wrong, we love selling beautiful yarn!) It’s time to experience the things we enjoy most. Those of us who work at Knit Purl really believe that weekends are about regaining focus […]

Starting on the Right Foot

The new year begins with new undertakings, plans, and challenges. While many people make lists that revolve around fitness, organization, and long-term goals, knitters make their own special lists this time of year. Many review their accomplishments and creations from the past year. Others look to their ever-increasing Ravelry queue and think about what to […]

WIP Wednesday!

We’ve been promising a big staff project post for quite some time now, but with all the comings and goings we had some trouble corralling everyone’s projects into one place. But sometimes the stars align, and luckily I was able to borrow (almost) all of our staff projects for the afternoon! So, welcome to the […]

Just KAL me

I am so far behind that I’m probably in another time zone.  That said, I’m going to push forward and ignore everything missed in the last three (egads) weeks, and start over.  Childish, perhaps, but also sensible when my desk looks like an archaeological dig. By now, you’re probably familiar with our Fashionknitsta’s lastest knit-along, […]

Knitspired: flocking together

The last two weeks have been a blur.  We’ve been just so busy this season that I can’t even remember why I didn’t post last week.  Sorry, guys.  We were super excited to see (and hear) such enthusiasm for our Handknits For Hardknock Kids clothing drive and are more determined that ever to match best […]

True Plies: Shelter yarn by Brooklyn Tweed

Well, it goes without saying that we were beside ourselves with glee when Jared brought us samples of his new yarn, Shelter, during a teaching visit last July.  We were duly sworn to secrecy and waited as patiently as possible for the official launch date.  Lucky for us, Jared also brought swatches in a variety […]

Fashionknitsta Thursday: 7/22/10

It’s another gorgeous (and busy!) day here in Portland. I’d like to apologize (again!) for dropping the blogging ball.   It’s been crazy here at the store and I just haven’t had the time to scope out any of the great things the internet knitting world has to offer lately. Now that all of these […]

Our Biggest Post EVER

It’s in the running, anyway.  After all, it has taken me two weeks to write it.  You might want to go and get a cold drink and a comfy chair before reading this one.  First and foremost, we have a collection of truly lovely projects – but no project details.  Why? you ask.  Well, there […]

We’ve had several concerned emails and questions upstairs.  The simple truth is that I’ve been out sick with the weirdest virus I’ve ever had and Lindsay has been overrun trying to keep up.   Sorry, guys.  Sandy Kay and I are working on our next tutorial: Duplicate Stitch; but she’s been busy catching up this week, […]
