To finish off the week, we have a big, fat, beautiful prize from the Oregon Woodworker.

It's a Mama Bear™ PLUS Handcrafted Yarn Swift™ and we're throwing in a Twist Collective pattern of your choice. Due to the size and weight of the swift, this prize can only be sent to US and Canadian addresses. We're sorry about this, but don't worry, there will be more worldwide prizes up for grabs next week!

Twist Style Friday Double Feature: Floriston and Cayley

Every Friday we feature one of the garments from the magazine in a post about styling. We suggest different ways to wear the garment in question using mock-ups from Polyvore. We encourage readers to tell us what they think about these outfits via our Facebook page or Twitter, and if folks want to make their own outfits, please tweet them at us with the hashtag #twiststyle. You can find all of the Style Friday posts here.


Happy Friday everyone! I hope you have been paying close attention to this blog for the last week or so, and that you continue to; we are giving away so much great stuff (courtesy of our dream team of advertisers). If you haven't gotten in on the action yet - never fear - we have many more amazing prizes to give away. 

If that isn't already making you happy, observe that today's style post is a double feature. If you've been paying close attention to this column, you know that double features mean something pretty exciting. These are the last garments from the Spring/Summer 2013 to be styled, and hopefully next week's style post will feature a garment from the forthcoming Fall 2013, fifth anniversary issue. It's a beaut, folks. Just you wait.

Not to diminish the loveliness of the stuff in our current issue; take a gander at these lovelies, for example.





Let's look at Cayley first. This top is sweet and cozy. I often want to contrast sweetness with something else, but with Cayley, I just wanted to revel in the sugary a little bit.

Adorable, right?

Floriston's shape is perfect to pair with full skirts, but that isn't the only thing she plays well with. She's polished and pretty in any situation. Check it out.

How will you wear Cayley? What about Floriston?

See you next week!! Happy Twistiversary everyone!!
