It's always a party for wool-loving knitters when the fiber clock points again to cooler weather, but this year Twist Collective is also observing our first anniversary. In the last twelve months, many thousands of knitters have visited us, and the time they spend poring over our pages confirms that we're doing something right. We're delighted to be here, and to continue our project of offering high quality fair trade patterns for the modern knitter. Thanks so much for being here too.

For Fall 2009, we have a few delights from the past, a fresh technique or two for your repertoire, and of course, stuff you can't live without. Because we're in the party mood, we'd like for you to think of this issue not only as our pledge for more to come, but also as as our gift to you to thank you for your support. Happy Knitting!
