Weekend Round Up!

Plied Knowledge: The week that was…

At the store:

  • NEW YARN ALERT!!! Wahoo! We are happily stocking a selection of 5 bases of Jojoland yarn. The walls are bursting with beautiful colors of:
    • Melody, their color changing fingering weight superwash yarn...
    • Ballad, Melody's solid twin...
    • Carnation, a self-patterning cotton just in time for spring and summer!
    • Cashmere 4/ply, a sport/DK 4 ply delight with a price you have to see to believe... 
    • Consonance, a lace weight silk/cashmere blend of soft goodness... (We need to take some glamour shots before we can get this up online.)
  • More Twine! We just got a new batch of Sock. and Twistedista Emeritus Rachel continues to delight us all with her colors...
  • We picked up a box Brooklyn Tweed with a little of this and a little of that...
  • Back issues of Laine Magazine also showed up! If you have been looking for a copy of the out of print first issues, now is your chance.
  • And don't forget to keep an eye on our classes - we update them regularly!

Around the web:

  • In honor of one of our beloved Twistedistas who will be leaving us at the end of the month, our store manager Anna, we give you this gem of an article about the origin of some of your favorite makeup tips...
  • Did you know Ikea has a food lab
  • A different way to look at the world and the shirts to prove it!
  • Speaking of a different way to view the world, have you ever thought about what will be obsolete in 50 years? Or that we will look back on wonder why in the world we ever did that? The Vox has asked 50 experts their opinion on just that...
  • And in the wake of the fire at the Notre Dame, NPR has an article on readers who have sent in favorite memories of the cathedral through the years...

And totally, completely, unapologetically local:

  • It's Easter weekend! If you are looking to outsource your Sunday brunch, here's an excellent place to start...
  • It's also Passover and we have a resource for that, too!

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