Geocaching, Crafting, and The Twisted Purl Traveler

Do you go Geocaching?  Geocaching is one of the most fun outdoor family friendly activities you can do.  All you need is a GPS device (most cell phones have them now a days) and the will to get out and find stuff!

I'd love to get more into Geocaching at a later time, for want to learn more?  Please go to

We are excited to be releasing a Travel Bug today!  This is The Twisted Purl's first ever Travel Bug.  A Travel Bug travels between geocaches worldwide and most work to fill a mission.

Current Goal:
On a mission to see your projects made out of yarn and visit as many local yarn shops as possible. I'd like to travel as far and as long as possible, so please keep me moving! I'd love to make it to a yarn shop in every state of America and then travel worldwide.

 Anytime our travel bug moves or gets update we'll share the information here.

We are heading out now to put it in it's first cache so it can start it's journey!

New Year New Yarn New Beginnings

The Twisted Purl has started fresh and new with the New Year.  The yarn is flying off the wheel and back into our Etsy Shop.  I's about darn time!

I took about a year off of the yarn production.  Tried to enter the real world and work a real job.  PSH!  You know how yarn can call to you?  Well my yarn was SCREAMING!  Why did you leave me?  Where have you gone?  You are the crazy yarn lady....not this other crazy lady!  So, I give in.  Here I am, back and ready to rock n roll!!!
A few new yarns are now listed in our online shop.  Please check it out!  Let me know what your hopes are for 2011.  Mine is to stay committed to what is important.

Hope you are having a crafty day!
