Welcome to Knit Purl Hunter!

Welcome to Knit Purl Hunter!
Actually it’s not really a secret since everyone knows I love sharing my passion for knitting with others. After years of teaching knitting, I am so happy to bring my designs and techniques to you. In fact, my passion for knitting led me to create Building Blocks, my new book. Building Blocks will help you improve your knitting skills one square at a time to create your own afghan or pillow squares. I’m addicted to knitting because there are always new techniques to learn, beautiful patterns to knit and more and more yummy yarns to play with. I know I am not alone!
