Spotting Stripes

I’m not trying to put you off my coming-soon pattern… but I’m probably about to put you off my coming-soon pattern. I’ve been busy making one of each colourway of the crochet version of the Four Seasons cowl, after working the four colourways of the knitted version, and creating the original as a 50th birthday […] The post Spotting Stripes first appeared on the twisted yarn ..read more

Blog post Draft Two, because the Stoic Spouse read Draft One and pronounced it inadequate. He also objected to the fact that I abbreviated him to SS in my hand-scrawled jottings for this post, which is fair enough because he really isn’t a Nazi. But surely I’m allowed the occasional abbreviation? And I’m less extreme […] The post Soggy. first appeared on the twisted yarn ..read more

Holey Socks!

The Twisted Seniors (my parents) asked the other day when I was planning to publish another blog post. I was visiting them with 50% of the twinnage. Actually it was more like 49.8% of the twinnage because one child is shorter than the other, despite the fact that they’re genetically identical. That proportion may have […] The post Holey Socks! first appeared on the twisted yarn ..read more

Artificial Lack Of Intelligence

Hello, my Fine Fibrous Friends. This post comes to you from a seat beside the fire, because it’s properly cold out there,* and also it’s close to hats-inside-the-house-cold in here, too. Unfortunately I don’t always win the race to the comfiest fireside seat:- Like the stereotypical tourist who springs from their bed at 6am to […] The post Artificial Lack Of Intelligence first appeared on the twisted yarn ..read more

A Whole Decade Of Blogging

Ten years ago today, I started The Twisted Yarn with this post. I didn’t know whether anyone would read it, let alone like it. Perhaps the Internet would take one look and burst into guffaws of derision. I didn’t know where this yarny journey might lead, but I needed to chatter about knitting, and if […] The post A Whole Decade Of Blogging first appeared on the twisted yarn ..read more

A Distraction

Well thank you, good people of the internet, for your kind response to the Four Seasons Cowl. There seem to have been some techie glitches with the blog that may have prevented access at times, so I did what any right-minded IT-whizz* would do, and swore with creative abandon, drank too much wine, then hit […] The post A Distraction first appeared on the twisted yarn ..read more

The Four Seasons Cowl: A New Pattern
The Twisted Yarn

5M ago
It’s done. The new cowl pattern is complete in all four of its seasonal connotations, and the pattern is HERE. Not that you’re likely to wear a cowl all year round, but each of the above palettes has been inspired by a season, so that you can for example bring bold summer cheerfulness to your […] The post The Four Seasons Cowl: A New Pattern first appeared on the twisted yarn ..read more

Nearly There
The Twisted Yarn

5M ago
So in this little journey through the four seasons via my new cowl design, I’ve finally alighted on spring. There’s no daffodil-yellow in the Highland Heathers range as yet (hint hint, Stylecraft!) so I couldn’t fully convey the blue-yellow-white palette of spring shades. Yeah, yeah, I need to weed this little patio that I built in […] The post Nearly There first appeared on the twisted yarn ..read more

Weirdly Wintering In August
The Twisted Yarn

I’ve just completed winter. Not actual winter, since it’s August and we’re in the northern hemisphere, but the chilliest colourway of the four-season cowl design that I’ll be publishing shortly. But as I said in my last post, this is a British winter, so discard any notions of sparkly white snow against a blue sky, […] The post Weirdly Wintering In August first appeared on the twisted yarn ..read more

Colour Me Seasonal
The Twisted Yarn

7M ago
Ah hello, my Fine Fibrous Friends. It’s good to see you. Yes, you. A confession: I was worried. My previously unquenchable need to knit and to design went AWOL for a while. Seriously, you could have dumped me beside the most magical motifs that Mother Nature has to offer, and instead of thinking I CAN […] The post Colour Me Seasonal first appeared on the twisted yarn ..read more
