Goodbye Purl Princess
Posted by Deadly Knitshade on July 6, 2009
Laura “Purl Princess” leaves Stitch and Bitch London’s Stitchettes to go off into the world and do other lovely things.
We take a look back at her fabulous wool-flavoured S&B London career.
Laura was one of the founding members of S&B London back in December 2005. Her vision was to pass on the love of the Knit to as many people as she could.
As S&B London got bigger we needed more help. Laura made sure every Stitchette felt like part of the team.
During her time Laura has taught so many people to knit we have lost count.
Laura has knit EVERYWHERE.
She’s met a few of her knitting idols, and snagged her own column in Knitting magazine where she’s a Purl About Town.
She’s knit for charity and given a huuuuuuuge amount of time to organising some amazing London Knits. The London Lion Scarf have taken much longer without all her stitching and sewing.
She’s spoken to a whole load of journalists to pass on the knitty word, and has been in front of the camera with her knitting tons of times.
She managed to balance her crazy knitting life and snagging herself a man who eventually married her. The bridesmaids bouquets were all knitted.
She’s knit a whole lotta stuff from tiny jumpers, to tashes, to blanket squares. A self-confessed selfish knitter, she’s churned out some glorious garments for other people too.
And she’s eaten cake the whooooooooooole time.
We take our knitted hats off to a phenomenal Stitchette who was never too tired to teach, proudly practised some expert bitching along with her stitching, never shrank from a knitting challenge, and always shared her cake. We’re sorry to lose her from the Stitchette army, and wish her the best of luck in all her future endeavours, woolly or otherwise. It’s been wicked, chick. You’re welcome back anytime. xx
