Q: How did The Twisted Knitter come about and how long have you been in business?
A: The Twisted Knitter was born on May 31st, 2011, about 3 years earlier than originally planned. I had always said that when both of our kids were out of high school that I would love to open up a yarn shop in Mebane. My collection of yarn, patterns and dyes were slowly taking over our house. So, when the store front on Clay Street in downtown Mebane dropped into my lap, it was an opportunity that my husband and I could not pass up. I could have never have dreamed that the number of knitters and crocheters in Mebane would come out in droves!! Come this Memorial Day, 2013, The Twisted Knitter will be open for 2 years!
Q: What makes The Twisted Knitter unique?
A: What makes The Twisted Knitter unique you ask…I dye my own brand of yarn. You won’t find The Twisted Knitter yarn anywhere else but here at the shop. The majority of my yarn base is sock and sport weight, but I have an assortment of other weights that I can dye as well. I also do custom dyeing as well. I also put a skein of The Twisted Knitter yarn, specifically dyed for the TYC in the TYC goodie bag.
