Hello Hello to each and everyone of you!! Thank you so much for your positive response to the neck cozies!! I have nine I need to have knitted by the weekend! I am so happy you love them, and I surely enjoy knitting them! My Etsy Shop will be set up soon so all my blogging friends can purchase right from the shop, and I am also working on other surprises for you. As promised, above you will find color swatches for my neck cozies. I plan to order even more colorways in the future! Don't forget to email me if you have any questions, I just love hearing from you!

Pretty Cabbage Roses!!

Hello to each of you! Well, what do you think of my new blog. I am excited about it and feel it is just what the doctor ordered. The format here will be quite different than my Tea Time blog....which I often call my heart to heart. It will be all about crafting, designing and me and my Etsy Shop! I hope you find it a delight and visit often.

Now let's talk crafting! I have done a little redecorating in the shop, and there is a whole lot of knitting going on! I plan to knit through spring summer and beyond, it all depends on my crafting gage which changes often. :o) But no matter what I do it will all be right here on the Twisted loop. On next week I will be adding my cozies to the shop along with thumb nail color swatches! Many items will be ready for immediate purchase, and some will need to be ordered. My turn around time will be rather quickly....from 2 to 7 business days before shipping. I just had to give you a sneak peak at this absolute lovely scarflette I designed this past week. I could not wait to show it to you although I have decided to place another beautiful cabbage rose on the other side of the tie. The yarn is a hand painted chunky wool that was a delight and joy to knit. The cabbage rose I knit from alpaca.....pure luxury! This little pretty is on an order basis, but will be placed in the shop on late next week, so look for it! I can almost promise you nothing you place on your neck will be more lovely!

This scraflette ties on the side, it is beautiful with a single rose but absolute dashing with two cabbage roses! And so so lovely in this colorway! As you can tell I am quite excited about this design! So do not forget to check the shop all these pretties are on the way!! :o)

Smiles to you....

Welcome to The Twisted Loop!!

Well hello to each of you and welcome to my newest blog The Twisted Loop! As so many of you know, I absolutely love to design, write, and knit too! In the beginning of the year I decided to take a much needed break to relax and catch up on so many of those little things I needed to do. I was indeed looking forward to catching up on some of my unfinished projects in my knitting basket and was looking forward to making a few pretty scarves for myself. I also designed and knitted myself a lovely neck cozy....I absolutely loved it!! Why had I not made myself plenty of theses little pretties before. It was not only lovely but really easy to take along with you. Simple in construction but lovely in its completion and convenient too! Perfect for an early morning stroll, jogging, or any outdoor activity!

A blend of lambs wool and acrylic "Anne" is my first neck cozy I wanted to introduce to you! Modern, sophisticated and elegant...."Anne" can be worn with the button in front or my favorite on the side, and comes in many beautiful colorways. Wear it with your favorite jacket, coat, sweater, or a simple tee shirt! I love mine and wear them all the time, even on chilly mornings indoors! It is the perfect little piece to keep the chill away and look good while doing it!

Ordering is easy: Just visit my Etsy shop where you can purchase and see additional color swatches too. That's it!! If you have any questions be sure and email, I would love to hear from you!

Hope you enjoyed these pieces and come back often, because I have a lot of ideas in the wings for keeping you cozy!!
