Time for new adventures – Kari-Helene bows out

It is with mixed emotions I have decided it is time for a change in my life. It seems like life is throwing changes at me left right and centre at the moment anyways, so why not go with the flow?
I have decided it is time for a career move and from the end of April, I will be leaving Purl Alpaca Designs in Tracy’s capable hands and setting of on my very own adventure.

The adventure will start with a new life. For the last 7 months I have been carrying a child and I am looking forward to spending a few weeks preparing for baby’s arrival and then some time getting to know them. We don’t know if we are having a boy or a girl yet, we’ll find out when baby arrives in mid June. When I emerge from the haze of baby madness I will go back to designing. This time in a freelance capacity. I am looking forward to new challenges but will surely miss the amazing community we have built over the nearly 10 years of Purl! Don’t be a stranger, do say hi!

Lots of love from Kari-Helene, bump and Frank xxx
