Meet the Twistedistas: Kat

Name: Kat When did you first knit, and who taught you? Freshman year of college, late 1990s. A girl who lived across the hall was knitting, and I immediately asked her what she was doing and if she would teach me. Both of my grandmothers crocheted and had tried to teach me, but it just didn’t take. […]

Your First Socks

When I learned to knit over 20 years ago, it was because of socks. Over the years, I’ve knit lots of pairs (and even more singles), top down, toe-up, even on the bias. I never tire of the way a sock project moves along from segment to segment, or the potential for adding an entertaining […]

Slow Fashion Month

As the Pacific Northwest begins its rainy season, we are drawn physically and mentally inward to the warmth and comfort of the indoors, re-allotting time once spent hiking and picnicking with friends to more quiet activities. Maybe we begin projects inside the home, or find comfort in the simplicity of things like board games and hot tea. […]

If you follow Twisted, you know I’ve been raving about Elizabeth Doherty’s book, Top Down: Reimagining Set-In Sleeve Design. This incredibly well thought out book covers so much – from swatching to altering. Clearly written and beautifully designed, I can’t think of a better resource for the modern sweater knitter. Elizabeth joins us this weekend […]

Top Down Set-In Sleeve Workshops

I love knitting sweaters. Some people are sock knitters, or shawl knitters. I love those, too, but when I’m craving a new project, I start plotting sweaters. There are so many options! Pullover or cardigan? Flowing or fitted? And what stitch? Something simple, or maybe a clever panel of interesting texture? Yet I often hear […]
