Indie Socks Trunk Show, 8/27-9/2





 

Monday, August 27th through Sunday, September 2nd

Meet Chrissy (and some local contributors) Saturday, September 1st from 12-3pm

We knew her waaaay back when…Chrissy Gardiner, that is. When we first met her, she was a budding designer, and now look at her. Two fantastic books under her belt. Who knows how many gorgeous patterns. One of THE experts in the sock-knitting world. And our friend. We don’t see her as much as we used to, but, golly, we sure do admire her.

This week, we are featuring her newest book, Indie Socks (and all of the designs from it) in the shop. She and Donna Arney compiled an amazing tome, one that not only inspires the knitter in a person, but the creative soul. Come by the shop all week to check out the socks, snag a copy of the book, and spend some time with Chrissy (and some of the artisans who contributed to the book) on Saturday.

Indie Socks is the culmination of a lot of work and care. It includes profiles of 24 exciting indie dyers from across the industry by Donna Arney, along with patterns Chrissy created especially for their yarn. The book also details some of Chrissy’s favorite tips and tricks for working with these sometimes challenging yarns. If you can’t resist those lovely handpainted skeins at the store, but then get them home and can’t figure out what to do with them, this book can help.

Who are the dyers? Among others, some Twisted faves include Hazel Knits, Blue Moon Fiber Arts, Knitted Wit and Abstract Fiber.

Head into Twisted this week to snag your copy of Indie Socks at 10% off! And, make sure to come on Saturday, September 1st, from 12-3pm to meet Chrissy (and some of the dyers).
