A Note from Miko...

It's a Girl!


Our long awaited Little Poppy has finally arrived! Of course, we are all over the moon and thrilled. She was born April 13. She entered this world with a full voice and a full head of hair. Weighing 8 lbs. 11 oz. She is amazing, healthy and just so darn cute. Especially in knitwear. I find it hard to take my eyes off her. I may clearly be a little biased though.

It is hard to believe, but she is now almost four weeks old. We are settling into our new roles and even finding a little bit of a routine. We also are starting to venture out and see the world again. So naturally, Poppy needed to come to the shop and model in a basket of yarn. This is a long standing Purl tradition and we, without a doubt, needed to be apart of it.

I was sad to miss the Frolic this year. All that yummy yarn. But Poppy still dressed for the part.


We want to thank the community for all the support and well wishes we received, through out my pregnancy and with Poppy's arrival.



It has been truly amazing to be a part of this community. To feel so loved has been so heart warming and wonderful. And the presents we have been gifted, well they have been absolutely magical. There has always been something truly special about gifting your handmade projects to others for me. Spending the time/energy to make the projects with others in mind.  Nothing is as special, or usually as cute, as seeing them on a baby.  And now it's my baby being wrapped in all the special loved fabric you all created for her.

Thank you so very much. It means the world to me, Walter, and Poppy.
