Purl was first founded in 2002 as a friendly yarn shop where people could gather and share each other's creativity. In 2006, they opened Purl Patchwork a few stores down from Purl, and in 2010 they combined forces and opened a new, larger space in SoHo called Purl SoHo.
Not only does Purl SoHo provide amazing materials for crafters of any age or ability, they also provide hundreds of comprehensive tutorials and projects on their Purl Bee blog in knitting, crocheting, sewing, crafting, and embroidery. Check out the latest crochet journal, Bear's Rainbow Blanket.

Some of my favorite posts come from Molly. She develops easy-to-follow tutorials that often produce items that are perfect for gift giving. One of my favorites? These stacking linen pillows, a perfect housewarming gift.

If you're new to a specific craft, need a brief reminder about the blanket stitch, or just want to hone your skills, each category of craft on their blog contains tutorials with tons of easy-to-follow photos.
