~ It doesn’t matter what I’m knitting,
I am knitting just to knit. - Lorelai Gilmore ~

Hiya! My name is C.C. Almon. I'm the Mamma part of the design team JavaPurl Designs.

A little about me: I've been married for 20+ years to the love of my life Russ (aka The Hubs). I have a beautiful 18+ year old daughter Dami. Our family of 3 relocated to the Pacific Northwest from Scotland where the Hubs got his Ph.D. in Theology.

I'm a self-taught knitter (began in 2005) and can crochet just enough to be dangerous. I began designing knitting patterns in 2012.

I'm addicted to coffee, the Gilmore Girls, Doctor Who, the colour pink, our cat Pink Purl Almon (aka the cutest cat in the world), lots of geeky things, and knitting! 


Hi! I'm Dami, the second half of the design team JavaPurl Designs!

A little about me: I’m a 18 year old, Christian, LGBTQ+, recent high school homeschooled graduate, podcaster, unprofessional arter, and pattern designer. I'll be starting at Seattle Pacific University this autumn.

I began knitting in 2007 and designing knitting patterns in 2016.

I love love love musicals (HAMILTON & The Great Comet), Jane Austen, Marvel, Elementary, and so much more!
