I have a lot of fun and colorful things to share but first a few things that happened this week that kind of put a wrench in things. On Monday our website and email was down for over 24 hours. The company that hosts all of our online stuff had a whole data center go down. Yeah that was fun and nerve wracking! Also put us a bit behind on our customer service. Sorry! So then a few days later the shipping service we use also went down. It’s evidently a theme this week. Also down for a little over 24 hours. This one was a little more complicated though. They also did an upgrade that was not supposed to happen for awhile that we needed new shipping labels for. Which means we can’t ship until they arrive. I kid you not. I spent hours on the phone with many supervisors and you would think they would take a box to the PO just to shut me up but alas no, not so much. Because of this we could not ship sock club as planned and all other orders are also waiting. And yes I tried to get these elsewhere but of course they are the only ones who sell them. It’s been a frustrating week. I also have been trying to finish up spinning and have one wheel down and the other’s drive band snapped on me so it is just one of those moments where things go awry. Wonder if it has anything to do with it being Leap week! Hmmm….
On the positive side of things I actually finished a knit. I know!!! Miracles do happen. It’s a marled cowl in our Featherlight. I wanted something that uses scraps. I love it!
Okay so this coming week is ROSE CITY YARN CRAWL!!!!
I’m so excited! We’ve stocked Twisted with all kinds of colors and yarns and also the two colorways we did for them just for the crawl.
I am so thrilled with these two colorways. I think they are a great addition to our Blue Moon’s chicken line of colors and Twisted’s exclusive Blue Moon colors.
There are three lovely designs using our colorways! You can check them out here on Ravelry
Which came first? by Cheri Clark in both a wrap and cowl version! So pretty!

Stunning designs thank you to both Cheri and Malaika for creating these lovelies for us to knit and celebrate our fine feathered friends, our crawl, Twisted and our community!
ok I am off to run errands before it gets too crazy out there since it is Saturday!! Fingers crossed that nothing else goes down or breaks.
