One of my favorite podcasts is Prairie Girls Knit and Spin with Danie and Susie. Danie is also the dyer behind One Twisted Tree….a fabulous indie dyed yarn. I was killing time on Ravelry at the dentist when I saw Danie post that she was going to discontinue One Twisted Tree. Her family life and health has changed over the last few years making it very difficult for her to manage both a family and her shop. So she is closing….insert tears here…
She posted that she was going to put her remainder of inventory on discount in her shop. And I needed purchase (okay…hoard) some of this yarn because her color sense is like a perfect match to me. I really don’t need more yarn but this was 100% an emotional purchase and my last chance to support a small business I loved.
I got some Prime Fingering in the Forest Floor color. This is a 75/25 merino nylon blend in fingering weight. And I have several green skeins kicking around in my stash that I’m seriously contemplating a Free Your Fade by Andrea Mowry next year.
I also picked up a skein of Lavish base in the Chaotic Neutral color. This is 100% merino at a DK weight. And almost assuredly going to be a hat or pair of mitts. Possibly for my sister next year for Christmas? Or I may just hoard this as a golden skein that makes me happy as a pet skein of yarn. Time will tell!
RIP One Twisted Tree!!
