I just finished Twyst Shawlette in Cherry Tree Hill Yarns Broad Band Supersock Select Merino fingering weight yarn in 100% Merino wool. The colorway is Moody Blues. I held both ends of the yarn ball together and knitted with a US size 6 needle. This created a nice, thick, warm and soft shawlette. Details on … Continue reading Moody Blues Twyst
Noticing others posting their Best 9 of 2016, I hopped on the band wagon. In July of this year, I began publishing my own designs and tried my hand at a different tool, the Addi Express King Size knitting machine. You can find the ready-to-ship items in my Etsy shop here. And the patterns in my … Continue reading Best 9 of 2016
I was trying to use this really cool yarn by Phydeaux Designs, Phydeaux Yarn Beurre: Superwash Fingering Merino Wool in colorway My Sweet Prince. I figured it would work with other yarns and colors in my stash, but it just wanted to stand on its own and shine, so I knitted it up with my pattern, Twyst … Continue reading My Twysted Prince
I've not been posting much because I was working on a cowl design that I hope to have published soon with an e-zine. I hope to have more info about that if it's accepted in the next few weeks! In the meantime, I finished three projects this weekend. First, my Yak Twyst Shawlette. Knit with Artfibers Yaqui in … Continue reading Still Stashbusting
I love how this shawl turned out! It's made of Hedgehog Fibres Sock and Hedgehog Fibres Kidsilk Lace (mohair) in speckled colorway Exploding Peacock. I had these sitting in my stash from StevenBe's event earlier this month and thought they'd look great knit up as a Twyst shawl! This is what they looked like prior … Continue reading Hedgehog Twyst Shawl

I am loving Skirler's Twysted Parakeet on Ravelry! She knit it with her handspun from polwarth fiber. Isn't it lovely? And I loooove the tassels! She made it her own! What will you create with Twyst Shawlette? P.S. One last day to participate in the Twyst Shawlette pattern giveaway!
I have been saving my one skein (90 yards) of Malabrigo Rasta in colorway Aniversario for something special. Twyst Shawlette seemed to be a good idea. So here it is! I think it looks great! And with some aggressive blocking with my blocking wires, it grew from 38" from tip to tip and 12" at … Continue reading Rasta Twyst Shawlette
Another fabulous shawlette from the Twyst Shawlette pattern! I had one skein (328 yds) of Noro Silk Garden Sock sitting in my stash that I desperately wanted to get rid of by knitting into something pretty. It's Sport weight, so I decided to knit it into a Twyst Shawlette which highlighted its color changes beautifully! Silk Garden Sock is … Continue reading Noro Twyst Shawlette
I had two skeins of Malabrigo Caracol in colorway Cirrus Gray so I thought I may as well see what I can do with them. I figured I'd give the Twyst Shawlette pattern a shot but use both skeins since the pattern is adjustable. I had a couple of oversized skeins so I got a … Continue reading Caracol Twyst Shawl
