A little Mochi love

We are all really in love with Crystal Palace’s Mochi line of yarns, and Vivian was feeling the photographic inspiration this weekend, so she took some fabulous shots of the three Mochi’s together. First there was Mini Mochi, a fantastic fingering-weight yarn. Then came Mochi Plus, a worsted version of the original. And then, as […]

Goldilocks Bowls pattern available today!

For our final pattern of the 2010 Single Skein Club (by the way, there’s still room in the 2011 club, folks!), our very own Sorren designed these delightful little felted bowls. The Twice-Felted Goldilocks Bowls can be made, all three of ’em, out of one lone skein of Brown Sheep’s Lanaloft Worsted!

More Yarn Bowls

Come one, come all, to view Twisted’s selection of locally made yarn bowls by JAMPDX. We just received a fresh crop straight from the kiln. It is spring after all… is that why the green one and the poppies were calling my name?

Hazel Knits

“A full tree is a happy tree.” That’s what Vivian said as she stocked one of our yarn trees to the brim with Hazel Knits Artisan Sock. And truer words hath never been spake. Hazel Knits Artisan Sock is a blend of superwash merino sock yarn with 10% nylon for added strength. It is custom […]

Our love affair with ISR continues…

We decided to deepen our Imperial Stock Ranch holdings, and Star spent a wonderful afternoon flipping through color cards, and widening our ISR palette. We all just about fainted when we saw how breathtaking the ISR wall has become, with all of the new colors…If you don’t believe us, take a gander yourselves!

Cute as a Daisy Hat pattern

New pattern alert! The ever-talented and lovely Lenka has designed a hat that really lives up to its name – it really IS Cute as a Daisy! This two-color hat is a great first Fair Isle project, or a quick knit if you’re experienced at the technique. Either way, the pattern repeats are intuitive and […]

Stitch Switch

Are you sick of losing stitches when trying on a sweater-in-progress? Sick of transferring every.single.stitch onto a piece of waste yarn, only to realize that you cut the waste yarn too short, or that it eats into your valuable knitting time? Feeling frustrated about these very issues, Emily and Parna hopped online the other day, […]

Get Twisted Color Adventure with Black Trillium Fibre Studios

Imagine how excited we all were when, last fall, the extremely talented and wonderful Melanie of Black Trillium Fibre Studios asked us if we would be interested in her creating colorways for each of us. After we picked ourselves up off of the ground (what knitter hasn’t dreamed of a favorite dyer’s colorway being inspired […]
