Kia Ora and welcome! I'm so happy you've found me.
I'm Paula, the face behind Purple Sprouting. I'm wife to Sam, aka Mr Purple Sprouting and mum to Joe (21 today) and Dylan (19). There's also Jenni (a friend who lives with us) who sometimes helps me with Purple Sprouting.
We made the move from the UK to New Zealand in 2007 and then late last year we moved onto a small lifestyle block in semi-rural Hamilton. The section is going to need quite a bit of work doing do it, once it stops raining!
Crochet and knitting have been a part of my life since I was a little girl. I dyed my first skein of yarn in 2015 and my new obsession was born.
This blog will be an informal way to keep you up to date with what''s happening at Purple Sprouting; my adventures in dyeing, yarn projects, wool related chit chat etc.
I'd love for you to join me.
