Twistedista Emeritus Shannon Squire and Blue Moon Fiber Arts have teamed up for the Blue Moon Mystery KAL, and we couldn’t be more excited! A clue will be released every week for four weeks beginning on Wednesday, September 24. Shannon promises, “at the end of those weeks, you’ll have a fabulous fall accessory.” The pattern is available for $6 on Ravelry or at Twisted.
How could it get even more fun? With an irresistible new yarn, of course! Blue Moon Fiber Arts is introducing Yaksi Fingering, a sublime blend of wool, yak and silk. Yum! Come on by the shop to select your colors for the Mystery KAL, or purchase online here.
We just received a new shipment from Madelinetosh, and it is stuffed full of beautiful, cast-on-worthy yarn!
First up, some incredibly fun, super bright Tosh Merino Light:
Next, Madelinetosh Prairie in beautiful, cool tones:
And Madelinetosh Dandelion in colors that warm the soul:

The 2014 CLICK for Babies campaign is well underway, and Twisted is proud to be sponsor again this year! What’s the campaign all about? Raising awareness about the period of purple crying and shaken baby syndrome. You can get involved by knitting or crocheting hats for newborns out of purple, machine washable & dryable yarn, and dropping them off at Twisted between now and October 1. We recommend Berroco Comfort and Berroco Vintage — both are easy-care yarns that come in a bunch of fun purples and multiple weights.
Twisted is offering a 10% discount on purple yarn purchased for making hats for the campaign. And we have two baby hat patterns available as free electronic downloads (but you can use any pattern you want): It’s My Party Hat by Emily Williams (pictured below) and Sweet Child of Mine Hat by Shannon Squire.
