Welcome to The Purly Ewe! My name is Amanda and I love everything fiber related. My main passion is knitting but I also enjoy sewing, quilting, and crochet. My dream is to own a spinning wheel one day and spin my own yarn. In addition to my own passion for knitting, I love to inspire as many people as possible to pick up this time honored, beautiful and useful skill. I believe its therapeutic and gratifying properties can benefit anyone and everyone willing to take the time to learn. I’m also constantly trying to come up with ideas and products that make life easier for fiber artists so that they can spend more time doing what they love and less time chasing stray balls of yarn.
Most of all, I’m passionate about my family. I am the wife of an American Soldier and proud of the life we lead as an Army family. I am Mommy to my 3 kiddos, with one on the way. Our sweet 8 year old daughter shares her Mama’s love of handcrafts, our 5 year old son is always bouncing and loves bugs and dragons, and our 19 month old son is constantly busy doing “Baby Work,” when he’s not busy making us laugh. Our “Tummy Baby” likes to pretend he’s a starfish (which isn’t very comfortable for his Mama) and will be joining our family sometime in mid-April.
Thank you so much for joining me here. Feel free to sit down with a skein of yarn, a couple of knitting needles or a crochet hook, a cup of tea, and join me in my blog where we’ll chat about all things fiber.
