Carey Pumo, Owner

I've been a crocheter and knitter since junior high school. As like many of you, I learned from my mother and both grandmothers. I remember my first project was knitted leg warmers for my dog, Pepper. I don't think he enjoyed them very much, but that didn't deter me from continuing with the craft.


I have been a South Central PA resident for 19 years and live with my husband, teenage son and daughter, and my newest toy - a 45" Le Clerc floor loom. Prior to LItlle Owls, I owned and operated a custom bra-making business. A passion for sewing runs deep in my blood as well.


Little Owls Knit Shop’s Vision/Mission Statement

Little Owls Knit Shop is a locally owned and operated yarn shop specializing in meeting the needs of knitters and crocheters throughout the local Harrisburg community and beyond.

It is Little Owls' mission to supply high quality yarns and accessories to knitters and crocheters, providing a welcoming environment for crafters of all skill levels, tastes and pocketbooks. Little Owls offers group and private classes, hosts community events and looks to foster personal fulfillment through the creation of hand knits.

My vision is to make Little Owls Knit Shop the favorite knitting, crocheting and fiber arts store in Central Pennsylvania and to inspire and develop the knitters of tomorrow.
