The Love Your Blog challenge – gratitude

This is week 4 of the challenge and Kate of A Playful Day has given us the topic ‘gratitude’. We would like to keep this one simple. There are so many things we could be grateful for; we are happy and healthy, we work with something we love, we don’t have to stock take our patterns more than once a year, we are in charge of our own lives, Tracy’s suitcase was found and turned into the police after being flung out of the van at speed last night on the way home from Wonderwool and tomorrow we will wake up to yet another day of being healthy and happy. Fingers crossed.

But, first and foremost we are grateful to YOU. You are the reason this business is what it is. You; the knitter, the reader, the social media surfer, the creative souls. To celebrate you, here are some of our favourite customer project photos through our years of running Purl Alpaca Designs.


Irene wore Duchess Cardigan on her wedding day

Judith really looks fabulous in her Esme Jumper

Elly’s mum knitted her this amazing Icon Dress

Ross knitted the Iago Waistocat and looks great!

Lizzie got married wearing the Beauty Wedding Cardigan

Caroline says the Alfie Hat is her favourite!

We love how Laura is rocking out wearing her Hope Wrist Warmers

Elisa looked stunning in her wedding outfit, wearing Bonnie Bolero over a lace dress

We love ALL your photos and you can see more of them on our customer gallery on Pinterest. Please keep sending us your photos, we love to see them and share them!

    Looks great! I bought a couple of your patterns at wonderwool and can't wait to start knitting! Great idea to get people trying the samples. Really made my day! So thanks to you too! X
