Little Free Library at The Twisted Purl

Are you looking for inspiration for your next crafting project? Why not check out the free library at The Twisted Purl?  It’s completely free!

We have a community provided library located inside our shop.  It’s full of books about knitting, crochet, and other crafty things. Have a crafty book at home you no longer need? Bring it in and help others on their creative journey.

Yes, you can get many patterns online, but there’s still a sensory satisfaction having a book in your hand.  Flipping through the pages, admiring the patterns, photos, and words.

Our library is an official Little Free Library, which is a fantastic organization.  You can find more information here.

Ripple as you Go Crochet Along Together

Excited to be participating in the Crochet-Along-Together "Ripple as you Go" both as a LYS and personally. The Crochet-Along-Together is adorably being referred to as a CAT.

The first part of the CAT pattern was released today. You can join in the fun by heading over to Ravelry and adding the free pattern, Ripple as You Go, to your library.

Once a week, throughout the month of August, Mandobug and Skacel Knitting will be releasing pieces of the pattern.
Every Friday, at The Twisted Purl, we will be hosting our own CAT from 1-3.
Stop on by to show off your progress. We have all the supplies needed for you to participate.
Here's my first piece:

Will share more progress as I go.
Suggested yarn: Schoppel-Woole Zauberball Stärke 6
Crochet Hook Size: 3.75mm F

Open Appointments One on One Lessons

Can’t figure out that stitch? What on earth does this pattern mean? What the heck did I do!?  These are questions we answer every day at The Twisted Purl.  We LOVE our customers and really do love being able to be here to help you through that sticky situation.  After all a happy stitcher makes the world a much better place!
Back during Austin’s football days, his coach would yell out “HELP SESSIONS!” whenever a kid would need more help getting through something.  Most of the time this meant way more sit ups, push ups, and tons of running. Football Help Sessions weren’t necessarily a good thing, but Stitching Help Sessions can be a blast!

We have a shop policy where if the yarn is purchased from here, and the problem is something we can easily walk you through, bring it! We’ll get you back on track. BUT if we need to give you extensive help (more than 15 minutes or so…) then you might need a Help Session!  This is the beauty of having a local yarn shop in your neighborhood. We can’t wait to get you back on your way to happy stitching.

EVERY THURSDAY, at The Twisted Purl, we have open appointments available for one on one lessons. Help Sessions!!! Starting at noon we have knowledgeable folks in the shop to assist you with any issue that might arise for both knitting and crochet.  The cost is $10 for an hour. Our last appointment is at 4:00, so stop on in if you need help.  Reserve your one on one time to learn how to knit or crochet as well.

Traveling? The Twisted Purl Yarn Shop is easy to visit off Interstate 40

The Twisted Purl is a quick easy yarn shop stop while traveling on I-40.  We are next to a coffee shop, a sandwich shop, gas station, and even a cookie place.  You can refuel, get a treat, pet the yarn, and be back on your way.

Take exit 124B and then go straight through the red light, traveling on Salem Road. You’ll go over a big hill, then travel over a train track overpass.

The next light you will come to will be Tyler, just head straight through.

At Prince Street you’ll come to a Roundabout (How British of us right?).  No worries! It’s easy to navigate…just remember traffic in the circle has the right of way. Enter the roundabout, then take the third exit option onto Prince Street (basically if this was a red light, you would have turned left).

Once on Prince, take the first left and then go immediately left (in front of Quiznos).  We are the second shop at the end of the strip mall, right next door to Classic Touch Flower and Gifts.

We can’t wait to visit with you!
