Hello Everyone,

Just a short note to pass along some very special news....I am now carrying a fabulous new line of yarns called Freedom Spirit by Twilleys of Stamford...they are gorgeous, with a wonderful hand and stunning colours...BUT the best thing is what this company is offering..just sign up with them on their website..

OR you can just sign up here at the shop, and you will begin receiving a monthly "Empire Club" Newsletter with discount coupons,free patterns,tips and all kinds of specials from this great company. I am really excited about this as they have some fresh, innovative ideas and I think you will really love their patterns as well.

So, anyway, that's what is new at The Purple Sock....oh, and don't forget to check out our new windows, filled with AMAZING felted ducks to celebrate the Coldwater Duck Race on May won't believe how cute and creative these little guys are...see you soon!

Happy Knitting,


  1. Hey Lynn!

    Congratulations on being selected for FIRST PRIZE in the Duck Race Window Competition!! I knew we could do it! It was great fun making all those little yellow duckies! The gals caught on so quickly and made the most adorable little guys & gals, especially the one in the inner tube and the one on the raft with her wings tucked back under her head! Very clever! Enjoy your glory, it is well deserved! Congrats to the other winners as well...Coldwater is AWESOME!!

  2. Hi Lynn,
    Was just corresponding with Beth at The Empire Knits back and told her that I was looking for the pattern on their June 7 blog post and someone who sold the yarn. She gave me a list and there you were. And I checked your blog and there is the feature. Synchronicity.
    And the comment above me is from my friend Debbe Bloom, who raves about your shop. As a new full-time Parry Sounder, I am much closer to you than I was before and plan to drop in soon and say hi. In the meantime, I'll sign up for the Empire Club and hopefully win the prize LOL.
    Looking forward to meeting you.
