Our Story


My name is Amanda, or (PurlyJoJo on Ravelry and Instagram).  Fiber arts have been a part of my life since I was a young girl.  I learned how to sew and crochet, and a few basics of knitting.  After struggling through dropped stitches, with no knowledge of how to fix them, I set knitting aside and focused on other handicrafts. That was until YouTube came into my life and suddenly I had access to knitting teachers in the comfort of my living room!  My passion for knitting was born.

My dream is to one day own a brick and mortar yarn shop.  For now, I am so blessed to have the opportunity to own and operate the Purly Ewe online and provide fiber lovers everywhere with useful tools to make their hand-craft lives easier and more enjoyable.  I love to come up with solutions to problems faced by fiber artists.  One of the biggest issues I face as a mother of 5 is the horrifying experience of having my knitting project yanked off the needles by curious little hands.  To save my sanity, my husband and I came up with the Ewe Clip, a revolutionary tool that protects knitting and crochet projects on any type and size of needle.  This clever little device will safely protect your works in progress without causing any damage to your needles.
