Purl Girl and Knit Kid
From the designer Anna Hrachovec “Knit Kid and Purl Girl are faster than a speeding yarn swift, more powerful than a knitting machine, and able to untangle knots with a single tug! When they’re not handling yarn emergencies, they lend their bold and creative problem solving to anyone who carries them in their pocket.” Knit up quickly in a couple of hours and make a great last minute gift. 1-1/2″ tall when made with fingering-weight yarn.

Terry met her husband Ken at a science fiction convention and moved to the Kansas City area to be with him more than 30 years ago. Terry supports her yarn stash by creating websites and other digital media. Terry firmly believes in Knitting in Public—it's a great conversation starter!
