Hello there!
We are here in the mountains without Internet and so I am trying
something new. I'm going to try to post from my phone. Fingers crossed
and we'll see!...

Someone is one!!!

Hi there!

Just popping in to let you know that Petite Purls is one year old!...and they are celebrating with a terrific giveaway! 

It's hard to believe that this time last year only one issue of Petite Purls {summer 2009} was out there.  Thanks to a lot of online buzz, I discovered that first issue shortly after it went live, and I was immediately blown away.  Finally an online knitting 'zine devoted to clothing, nurturing, and celebrating children!  It was pretty much true love at first sight, so of course I was thrilled when last July found me feverishly knitting the Ladybug Coat for their Fall 2009 Issue.

Truth be told, I can't say enough wonderful things about this great online magazine and its creators, the lovely Allegra and Brandy.  If you're not familiar with Petite Purls, pop on over and check it'll be glad you did...patterns, reviews and more!  Since the magazine's debut they have continued to add and expand.  The magazine now includes features on sewing, crochet, toy making, interviews with amazing crafters, designers, authors, bloggers and indie artists, and more, all devoted to creating and crafting for children...and all completely inspiring.  It's actually not entirely surprising that Petite Purls has come so far is such a short time—like I said Brandy and Allegra are incredibly talented and they work tirelessly {and I am beginning to suspect that they may have figured out how to survive without else could they accomplish so much and make it look so effortless and flawlessly gorgeous?}.  

Entering the giveaway couldn't be easier...scoot on over here to see what you can win and then just leave a comment.  Lots of wonderful patterns and prizes are up for grabs, including a signed copy of Fairy Tale Knits.  Entries will be taken through today, July 1, 2010.  Best of luck!!!!
