August Classes & Private Lessons

I haven't posted in a while, so this is a great opportunity to catch up since we have some updates. This month, we have a handful of Louet Euroflax 100% linen garments for you to see and try on. We've paired it with a generous discount and free pattern with purchase of the yarn required for the Euroflax project. Come see us!

Our intention for August and early September is to fill it up with private lessons and custom classes designed to fit your needs. A few of us are going through our hibernating projects to "Finish, Fix, or Frog" and we thought some of you might want to set up one-hour appointments so we can help you do the same with your languishing projects. 

Please call us at 281-528-8664 to set up your appointments! Here's a link to our current class list with details regarding each one. 

We hope you're having a great summer! See you soon,

Team Twisted Yarns - Summer Ravellenic Games 2016

Are you ready to be a Ravelete and to challenge yourself by starting and finishing a project during the Summer Olympic Games? Looking for a team of other crazy TY groupies to support you and cheer you on? Join Team Twisted Yarns with your event and have some fun!

Ann created the Twisted Yarns team banner!
The Ravellenic Summer Games 2016

Dates: Friday, August 5 - Sunday, August 21

The One Rule To Rule Them All: Challenge yourself by starting and finishing one or more projects during the 2016 Summer Olympics.

What will be a stretch for you? It could be a new technique, that first sweater or pair of socks, something massive, something delicate, or maybe finishing that monster in the closet. The goal of the Ravellenic Games is to support you in expanding your knitting/crocheting horizons.

When do we start?

The Mass Cast-On will take place during the Opening Ceremonies. When the Olympic Games kick off in Rio, 19:15 local time, that’ll be your start time, whatever time that is in your timezone.

Ann (knittiwan) and Gayle (sspurl) are your team captains and are here to answer questions and help you navigate your way through the Ravellenics.

Here’s how to get started:
  1.  Join the Ravellenic Games 2016 group on Ravelry
  2.  Read A Good Place to Start 
  3.  Choose your Medal Event and a project to compete in the event - make note of the event tag(s).
  4. Create a project page for your Ravellenic project
When you are setting up your project, make sure you have the following tags entered in the tag box for your project:

Tagging Tutorial - for best results, use copy and paste.

Also put your Event Tag in the tag box. You can find your event tag on the Medal Event page (see link above).

If you are using a technique in your project that qualifies for a Laurel, then put your Laurel tag in the tag box.

Introduce yourself in the thread for the Ravellenics on our Ravelry group page.

If you have questions or aren’t sure how to do something, please ask us.

Go Team Twisted Yarns!

Deadline to join Team Twisted Yarns is by the Opening Ceremonies on Friday, August 5th at 5:15 pm!
