Mother of Purl


Lauren McElroy runs home-based Mother of Purl in “rural Wisconsin, the occupied land that is the traditional and ancestral home of the oceti sakowin, ho-chunk, sauk and meskwaki peoples. …  Being someone with an intersection of many identities, it is important that my artwork is for the liberation of all oppressed people and the uplifting of my ancestors.” Lauren notes that “knitting a motherofpurl pattern is an experience that is meant to help you learn about your own knitting style and inspire experimentation.”
