Hi, I’m Anna, The Purling Cat. I’m a passionate albeit somewhat rebellious knitter and enthusiastic crocheter. I have been knitting since I was a young child. Knitting runs in the family – I was taught by my maternal grandmother who also learned from her parents (the family lore is that great-grandpa knitted too!). It has been a lifelong passion, joy and escape during challenging times. Last year I re-discovered crochet too and I’m enjoying building my skills now.
I live with my husband, 3 kids and 2 cats in the suburbs of Dublin, Ireland. Bunny Rabbit (girl,almost 6), Cuddly Bear (boy,4) and Little Bird (girl,just over a year old and on the picture here with me) make my life both full of love and chaotic.
