Christine LeGrow & Shirley A. Scott
Christine LeGrow was born and raised in St. John’s, Newfoundland. After a long career in retail she began Spindrift Handknits, a thriving cottage industry that creates local designs that are knit by Newfoundlanders.
Shirley Anne Scott, also known as “Shirl the Purl”, is a Come From Away who made her home in St. John’s in 2006. A librarian by profession, in 1989 she wrote Canada Knits, a history of Canadian knitting that opened many doors.
Both are lifelong knitters with a keen interest in the fascinating traditions of the wonderful place they live in. In the midst of busy lives they have co-written four popular books, Saltwater Mittens, Saltwater Classics, Saltwater Gifts and Saltwater Socks.
Christine and Shirley love to celebrate the art of living in Newfoundland through its knitting.
