The Purl Bee's Best of 2011!

This past year at the Purl Bee has been a true joy for us and, we hope, for you too! We loved every moment spent digging through our very favorite materials, dreaming up projects, and sharing the results. This year was all about combing the world's treasures for exciting inspiration, turning to everything from nature's palette to grandma's attic to New York City street style!

It all feels like such a whirlwind! Perhaps now is a nice moment to remember some of 2011's highlights: the most popular, the most special, the most original projects from the past twelve months. We hope you enjoy them again and happy New Year! May 2012 be as fruitful!

There is nothing like a project that keeps your hands busy and your lap warm at the same time! (Pictured above are Whitney's Perfect Fit Socks.)

To get your fall knitting started off with a bang, we've combed our archives for our most inspirational cool weather projects, perfect for right now!
