The CLICK for Babies campaign is wrapping up for 2014, and Twisted is proud to have been sponsor again this year! Be sure to drop off your purple hats by October 1 – or stash them away until next 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. We recommend Berroco Comfort and Berroco Vintage — both are easy-care yarns that come in a bunch of fun purples and multiple weights.
Twisted offers 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.

We’ve just received two brand new yarns at Twisted, and we’re super excited about them both!
First – Berroco Ultra Alpaca, a fantastic worsted weight blend of Super Fine Alpaca and Peruvian Wool. It’s perfect for fall sweater and accessory knitting, and it comes in a beautiful palette of heathery colors. Check them all out below!
Second – Berroco Cosma, a super soft blend of 60% Alpaca/30% Wool/10% Silk that has all the Twistedistas wanting to cast on sweaters. It’s sport weight, so again, perfect for your fall transitional wardrobe. This is a new yarn, so for now it only comes in 14 colors. Luckily they’re all beautiful! Don’t you agree?
With 420 yards, it’s perfect for socks. But as soon as you feel it, you’ll want it for your next cowl or shawl project. Here are just a few recommendations from the Twisted Pattern Line:
