Purls of Wisdom Group

By Robin Warden

 

Back in 1992 a group of knitters emerged to support the efforts of Mitchell-Yancey Habitat for Humanity.  This group began with a Cabin Fever Session hosted by Nancy Herman.  Cabin Fever is a longstanding tradition in the South Toe area of Yancey County where residents offer an array of classes, discussion groups, and social gatherings in their homes during the long winter months.   Twenty-two years later, the group, known as The Purls of Wisdom, is still meeting at Nancy’s home every Monday afternoon from 1-4.
