Spring Cypress construction

The stretch of Spring Cypress between I-45 and Lexington that heads to the shop and Old Town Spring is under construction. To avoid the backed up traffic, try taking Louetta Road east to Lexington. Turn left onto Lexington to Spring Cypress and turn right. The shop will be on your left, next to the Shipley Donuts and across the street from the Valero gas station. If you have any questions about taking alternate routes to get here, please call the shop!

Twisted Yarns in 2015

Thank you to our friends and Twisted Yarns customers for continuing to follow the blog even when we fail to post on a regular basis. As with any new year, however, we have lots of brand new plans to engage with you even when you're not able to make it to the shop. We've been updating our Facebook page almost daily and invite you to join the fun there for the most up-to-the-minute news, as well as contests and announcements that just can't wait till the next newsletter or blog entry. And if you haven't visited us since the ownership change, very little is different -- you would recognize the shop as the same happy place you've grown to love!

Here's a fun, easy scarf that many of us are knitting (staff and customers!) that we wanted to share here as well. This is Shelley G's "ZickZack" scarf in progress with Lang Yarns Mille Colori Baby (fingering weight yarn with short color stripe/gradient repeat). We'd love to help you choose your colors and start your own -- especially if you've earned rewards you would like to redeem. It's time for some "selfish"  knitting now that your gift-giving is over!

And if you're ready to take a new class, here's the January 2015 Class Calendar and Class Descriptions. We're working on several new and fun classes for February too, so be sure you're on the email list so you'll get our newsletter.
