And a big Congrats to all the raffle winners!
there are more photos here...
We would love to introduce a special Knitterly Collection of jewellry by
Pre-Boxing-Day Boxing Day Sale...
ooops, we are doing it again...
Sunday, December 22nd only!
We are clearing out the comfy chairs for the day
to make way for yummy sales!
Doors will be open 10am-5pm
Our regular line-up of in-stock Yarns, Books, Needles and Accessories will be
a festive 20% off regular prices!
... PLUS a little elf told me there may be door crasher sales
at even steeper discounts!!!
And just in time to pick up last minute gifts for your favourite stitcher
(and yes... you count!)
Please note that while you will not be able to redeem your Purly Points on the sale day, you will be able to rack them up! Some exceptions will apply. Sale prices will not apply to holds, special orders, spindles, handspun, Weather Head Project Bags,& Slashpile Designs Jewellry.
Speaking of the holidays...
If you would like to make it easy for those who have you on their list... come in and fill out a
Purple Purl Gift Registry Card!
We will keep the index card handy in the shop, and your friends and family can come in and see what it is you truly desire! We will even make sure you rack up the Purly Points!
Just let your gift-givers know to ask to see your wish list
when they pop-by, and we will help take care of the rest!
Be as specific as you would like to be, or just jot down an idea of your colour / fiber / yarn gauge / needle preferences. Can't make it in to fill out a card? No worries! Send us an email with "Purlie Wish List" in the subject line and we will make one up for you (or adjust an existing one).
Now, here is the rub: there is no peeking at your registry card again until after the holidays. If you want to add items you will need to fill out another card; we will make sure it is properly attached... wink, wink (we don't want to get in trouble for your snooping!)
To get your giftie thoughts under way here are a couple of festive specials!
Soak Box - Gift Set
This limited edition Soakbox includes a bottle of Soak wash & Handmaid luxury creme in co-ordinted scents, stylishly matched to premium nail polish and custom hand-dyed yarn. Pattern included (by the lovely Fiona Ellis!).
Give to your favourite knitter as is
Already packaged up and ready to wrap gift!
Purly Special: $49.00
The Gleener, The Ultimate Fuzz Remover...
The Gleener works like magic to quickly and easily remove fuzz, pills and lint from most woven or knitted fabrics. Everything from sweaters, t-shirts, pants, jackets, and scarves to drapes, cushions and upholstery will be completely revitalized! Check out the videos!
Purly Special: $20.00
Stocking Stuffers ideas... $16.00 or less
Ravelry colours of SOAKbox nail polish sets
to have stylish looking nails as you stitch up your next project!
... always a good gift. Isn't it funny how bags, couches, WIPs just make those little darlings disappear? $6.00-8.00
Hurray! Reinforce those drapey fibers with confidence!
Adding elastic to your knits or crochet will help maintain the shape of your knitted garments. Perfect for socks, cuffs, and sweater ribbing.
... even if your stitcher has one, it is likely she can put another one to use... very few of us work on one project monogamously! ...just $13.00 Very handy indeed... oooh and it locks!
Handmaid - from Soak
the new scent Yuzu is in too!
Hiya Hiya Puppy Snips
Great little tiny scissors... super handy for all of your purses and knitting bags! Just $6.00
From 2.00mm -4.00mm... these are a nice treat to try. It is recommended to buy one size larger than the stated needle size as knitters tend to be able to work a little more tightly on the square needles!
These little gems are quickly becoming the favourite DPNs to work with.
A treat of pretty and practical cable needles is the perfect little giftie! Just $11.00
For the utter beginner on your list, might we suggest ...

Regular Hours Interruptions...
Closed for the holidays
We will be taking some holiday time to spend with our families so we will be closed from: Monday, December 23rd - Tuesday, December 31st. We will be re-opening on January 1st from 1:00-4:00pm for our New Year's Day Pajama Party stitch-in afternoon, and of course back to regular hours from there on in!
So you will need to get all your last minute purly needs in
before close on Sunday the 22nd!
If you are stitching up gifts in a frenzy for the Holidays be sure to remember to stretch your hands and wrists at least once an hour!
December is a great month to wrap yourself in Fiber. Stay snuggly warm and know that trekking through the winter snow (cuz you know it is gonna happen eventually) to our shop will reward with you with warmth, yummy treats and an opportunity for that much deserved dedicated stitching time! Mmmm hot chocolate!
We hope you all have a festive and awesome holiday season! Don't forget to treat yourself to at least 2 items of shear decadence... you deserve it!
Happy Holidays & Happy Stitching!
