Twist Collective Blog

Now On Ravelry

It has come to my attention that a lot of people now use Ravelry to keep up with blogs.  A good friend of mine, really and truly she is, never reads the Twist blog, not because she doesn't love me (!), but because it's just not on her radar when I update.  Gotta fix that.

Hm.  a click or two, and a few days later:

Now Twist Collective has a Ravetar on Ravelry too!

Just "friend" twistcollective, and never miss a blog post again. And don't forget to check out the Twist Collective forum for KALs and the delightful goings on as the countdown for the Spring issue has begun.  It's okay: we're excited too.

It's the Little Things

I didn't get to TNNA, so I missed the apparent feeding frenzy around this little gem. But I did get a nice little email about it this morning, so I thought you'd like to see it too, if you haven't already.

 

 

 

The Knit Kit is a kind of swiss army knife for knitters, with everything in it, and is TSA airline safe, so you can get all knitterly on that cross country plane ride without fear of confiscation. Tape measure, scissors, stitch markers, crochet hook, built in row counter, thread cutter, all in a tidy 5 by 3.5 inch package. Look for it showing up all over the place in March.
