What a week!

This is a big week at Twisted!

Tonight, of course, Larissa Brown and Sarah Gilbert are joining us to celebrate the new book Knitalong (read more about it in yesterday’s blog post). This is a perfect opportunity for friends, fathers, and kids to make a wonderful Mothers’ Day gift for their favorite knitter. Join us from 6:00 – 8:00 pm.

Tomorrow night, another talented author and designer, Fiona Ellis, will be joining us for a lecture from 7:00 to 9:00 pm. The topic of Fiona’s lecture is “The Knitter’s Muse.” As her website says, the world is full of inspiration, from exotic travels to everyday scenes. Fiona will talk about what inspires her and how she uses this as a springboard for her knit designs. This hour-long presentation may even change the way you look at the world.

Please note: To make room for this event, Twisted will be closing early at 6:00 pm, then reopening at 6:30 pm ONLY to people who have pre-registered for Fiona’s talk. If you’re interested in attending, give us a call at 503-922-1150.

Finally, for Mothers’ Day on Sunday we’re having an event that asks people to share “Why I Knit.” On Sunday from 2:00 – 4:00 pm, our friend Laurie Ann Greenberg will be here, video camera in hand, to hear what motivates you to knit.

We’ve had a journal in the shop for the last month or so, and have had lots of people contributing their answers. Laurie Ann has been talking about why she knits on her blog. For this event, on Mothers’ Day, we’re hoping moms and daughters will come in together to share how they got started in the craft and what it means to them.
