Mountain Colors
Leslie and Diana started Mountain Colors Yarn 25 years ago with a love of color and fiber. Inspired by the beautiful Montana mountains, they continue to craft hand painted yarns. Twizzlefoot is a fingering weight version of Mountain Colors popular Twizzle yarn. A strand of silk is plied with superwash merino and nylon to create beautiful heathered colorways. Made for socks, it’s also great for other accessories like shawls, hats, and gloves. And since it’s superwash everything you make will be machine washable.

    • Sorry, I don’t know why that question mark appeared at the end of my comment, it was meant to be a smiling face 😉

  1. I was thinking maybe the knitter with loose tension knits continental style? I knit this way and drape the yarn over & under my fingers. My tension is looser knotting this way than with English style, but I do it anyway because it’s faster. i usually go down 2 needle sizes from what patterns specify. I also do not purl continental style because I found that my stitches were waaayyy too loose.

  2. For undoing sticky yarns like mohair, I have read (but not tried) freezing the WIP. Supposedly it makes it easier to unravel. Worth a shot if you really must?
