These are the hands of Hector, the sole male knitter and the “+1” that makes sarah oliver handbags and The Purlettes tick.
These are the hands of a publisher, artist, cancer survivor, friend, cat-lover, and Navy veteran who escaped the toils of the ship deck and landed in the coveted office space below deck….because of his hands. “Because I could type, my hands saved me…” Indeed.

Hector Richards likes to watch movies, (Blue Jasmine is his new favorite), spend time with his Cat, Ashley and is the treasurer of the Redwoods Residence Council in Mill Valley. Hector has been knitting for Sarah since 2010.
