What’s New?

Thank you!
We have had one of our busiest months ever! We had three shows plus the first shipment for our club all in a four week span. Whew!
We had a lovely time at the Wine and Wool festival in our neighboring town of Jackson, MI. The name says it all, and what could be better than a day spent with both Wine and Wool!
Next we hit Chicago for Stitches Midwest. So many of you stopped by to shop, chat, and show off your projects. While in the area we ventured into the city to catch a show with our daughters (Hamilton of course!) and to top off an already fantastic week we got to meet and talk with Kristy Glass of Kristy Glass Knits! She was lovely and really made us feel very special. Thank you Kristy!
Finally, we made it out to the Michigan Fiber Fest in Allegan, Michigan. The show was hot, but filled with a diverse and wonderful selection of fiber goodies! We spent the week camping and visiting with some of our favorite fiber friends (Shout out to Helena of Oink Pigments and Steve and Amanda of Leading Men Fiber Arts!).

Thank all of you who came out to see us, and Welcome to all of you who are new to our Twisted little corner of the world. We are so grateful to have you all in our family.

Bread and Roses!
This club is a huge source of pride for our team. We have worked hard to make it as special as possible. We really wanted the club experience to be as memorable as the colorways it represents. Feedback from the first shipment has begun to stream in and the reviews are fantastic! One of our Twisties and Ravelry moderators TwistedSoprano even did an unboxing video. Take a peek and see what our members are getting this month.

New Website coming soon!
Our website is getting an upgrade. You will be able to shop the same way while enjoying a crisp new look. All account info and reward points will stay the same but navigating the site from any device or browser will be easy and appealing. We love the new look and hope you will too. As with all change we anticipate a few bumps in the road, but we will do our best to make a smooth transition. We can’t wait for you see our FO!


New this Month:

New Colorways

Decadent: The lazy days of summer have it made in the shade with this hazy, decadent colorway. Greens and blues flow gently to purples and oranges. This reboot from the Spring 2015 club was reformulated to work with our current dyes. It has changed enough for us give it a new name. Welcome back Decay.


Orchid: Delicate and subtle pinky purple evolves organically to rich saturated color. Let your eyes breathe in this lovely colorway.


Inspiration:

Projects We Love

We all have a WIP lying around. Here is one from silky that will become a Kelpie by Jared Flood. She is using one of Meg’s favorite knitting techniques to accomplish this pattern. Instead of beginning with the evolution and adding on a bit more at the end to avoid the yarn chicken game, she is starting with the semi solid and adding the small evolution on at the end as the bit of interest. This a great technique that yields a very interesting result. I can’t wait to see how it turns out! Keep us updated silky!

This WIP photo illustrates one of the most unique aspects of using Twisted, the blending process. We take such time and care with your yarn to be sure that every transition is a gradual one. Thank you mikal4u2 for picking up your yarn again to knit this beautiful Whippoorwill

Entering into our next chapter as a company wouldn’t be complete without a nod to the people who got us here in the first place! The Phoenix colorway was released as a special fundraiser after our business was nearly destroyed by a fire a few years ago. This limited edition Phoenix project by shepzep as thing but looks as though it was destined to become another. Hey shepzep! What did your phoenix become!?


Starting today, July 15, 2017

What’s In?

Eclipse, Mint Chip, Mirage, Nomad, Pesto, Poppet, Rackhouse, Salsa


Starting Friday, July 28, 2017

What’s Out?
