Twisted Knits

If you're a knitter who knits the traditional way, I'm sure when you look at the picture above, you think what I first thought, "That looks a little off..."

It took me forever to figure out, but what threw me off was that the stitches were twisted—on purpose. Once I had my little aha-moment, it was time for a search on the internet. It took some digging, but I finally found the Freia and the Knitwhit Blog, complete with pictures and tips on dealing with and/or accepting twisted stitches.

For the look above, you wrap the yarn around the knitting needle clockwise for every knit and purl stitch. It is actually quite a nice look for Lionbrand's Thick and Quick yarn.

I love the internet.
