Friday Round Up

Friday Round Up

Friday! All day, once a week…

At the store:

  • Blue Moon Fiber Arts Sookie is in the the store! A brand new base for us and we're in love. It's superfine merino, super bulky and so new it's not even online yet... but it will be soon.
  • Also new to us is Black Cat yarns! Just like Sookie, they're up and selling like wildfire at the shop, but we haven't gotten pics up for online sales yet. Soon!
  • In our quest to continue to hoard the best of Malabrigo, we have new Worsted gradient kits available. Don't wait too long to check them out, there are one a few in the store...
  • It's never too early to plan for holiday gifts and a fine stocking stuffer is this new Stitch Marker Charm Bracelet. There is even a booster pack of extra stitch markers available!
  • In the same vein we also have a Knitting Needle Necklace... any knitter will instantly love these adorable little things.
  • Project bags also make great gifts and we have brand new hot off the presses custom made Twisted pods from Queen Bee! So hard to decide which color is the best... decisions decisions...
  • Our Knit 12 Together November cast on party was on Monday! This month's project is the Fossil Shawl by Larissa Brown, who was able to join us as a special treat. Looking for the cookie recipe from that night's treats? Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Toffee Cookies for the win! And tag us on social media with your projects and progress with #twistedyarnshop and #knit12tog - we love to see finished projects!
  • AND join us tonight for our Puddletown ProcrastiKNITers Party to learn about the Portland Knitters Guild and find some great last minute knit gifts.

Around the web:

  • Thanksgiving is shockingly close which means is the season for FOOD! First let's pay homage to the humble Green Bean Casserole. It's creator passed away recently and here is a lovely article about her life.
  • Not ready for recipes but need some inspiration? Try the new Salt Fat Acid Heat documentary- fascinating and full of great information! It is GREAT!
  • For pie inspiration, look no further...
  • Looking back for a second, just in case you actually have leftover Halloween candy you are trying to find a home for...

And totally, completely local:

  • This weekend you have a choice - are you a book person or a podcast person? If you are good at time management, it's possible to be both!

Have a great weekend and remember, you can always find us online!
