I had never even heard of this before! The Toasty and Twisted Stitches of Twined Knitting http://ow.ly/sLgWL
You've probably noticed twined knitting and had no idea that those stitches were purposefully twisted to create such a unique-looking piece. Twined knitting, or two-end knitting, is created with two strands of yarn -- one from each end of the skein. And there's one other thing that makes it unique: the stitches are twisted between each stitch.

With the festive season officially over, it was time for me to get back to work. Along with my freelance work and my new collection of sweaters that is coming out soon, I will resume teaching at Bucks New Uni, Morley College and Goldsmiths next week.

I'm working on an afghan for my new house. These are the colors that inspired me for decorating my living room. I also have a baby blanket going for a friend. And now I'm all sore from knitting too much. I have to take a break. I've sworn to myself: no knitting until at least Thanksgiving. Man, that's going to be tough!

Some good tips here.
I used to think that knitting alterations meant ripping out my work and starting from scratch. Thankfully, that is not true. There are tricky little ways to alter anything from a sagging neck to poufy sleeves. Rescue a forgotten knitted project that needs a little alteration by trying one of these tips.
