Twisted Loop Yarn Shop

Hello all,
As usual, it has been a couple of months since I've posted anything. But for once it is not for a lack of knitting! I've actually been getting quite a bit done nowadays and have ventured out into the wonderful world of lacey cowls, fingerless mitts, and even a halter top. More about that in another blog... with pictures, for sure.

Lopi Sweater finished. Pattern is Jon from Lopi pattern book 30 (i think)

Finished and blocked Lopi sweater, just in time. Flying to Iceland tomorrow for some R&R with friends. This sweater should be WARM, at least warmer than I'll ever need in Central California.

It's True, I Have Fiber Chlamydia (YTD's or FTD's) - from my post at

Yep, it's happened. And I know at this point that many of the readers that got drawn in by the title are shaking their heads in sympathy or are just plain confused... Fiber Chlamydia? Yes, that's right, fiber clap is here. Moths... More specifically, their little crawling larvae.

My attempt at knitting a Gregory Patrick Teddy Bear

I told my partner I would do it and I have--- I have knitted my first Gregory Patrick Teddy Bear. He came out cute and is going to be part of my family if I can keep my fur children away from it! I do not want him to become a causality to chewing by my dog!

Patterns, Patterns, Patterns!

Hi guys! So a friend of mine requested a custom piece for Christmas, which is very exciting! She, my boyfriend, and I are huge fans of RuPaul's Drag Race, and we get together every Monday to watch together (have you boys been watching Allstars??? The SHADE of it all...). She did not specify what she wanted as a gift, her only stipulation was that I make it for her.

Jack Frost Nipping at the Pumpkins

We've had our first heavy frost this week in St. Louis (but today is forecast to be 70). Almost finished my grandson's last sweater for the season and was thinking what to do next and thought I'd do my first cock sock/willie warmer. Anyone know of a good pattern and want to join me in knitting one up? I thought us guys could have some fun with a short project together.
