new Twist faves

The winter Twist Collective is out, and I had a thorough and pleasurable read-through with my coffee this morning. In my view it’s a really good issue, and here are my favourites…

I’ve been looking for nice thick pullovers for this winter, and Berwick hit just the right spot.

The Coesite hat keeps things interesting, but without going over the top, and I love that. It’s a truly innovative design, I can’t say I’ve seen anything similar before, which is becoming a rarity lately, so my sincere admiration goes to it!

And the Chamomile hat and mitts took my heart at first glance. I love the lace-trim fashion thingie that has been so popular lately, and I’m so happy someone has finally translated it into knitting.

But there’s more to Twist than just patterns. In this issue, I really enjoyed the article on ripping by the legendary Franklin Habit, the regular column on swatching (which, for once, I did not skip, hehe), and the myth-busters of knitting.

I started knitting completely by accident, when I was visiting my parents for a holiday in 2008. On a boring Sunday afternoon, I decided to dig through their stash of books to see if there was anything interesting to take back to my apartment. A knitting manual happened to be one of the books I found. I got curious, my mom immediately dug out her old needles and yarn stash (which she hadn’t used in a decade at least), and in a few minutes we were both casting on - she by memory, I by following the instructions from the book… :) Since I normally prefer learning from books, this was ideal.. I took the book home with me, and very very soon - I was an addict.
