Twistin' the Day Away

Cathy @ Twist

Yesterday, Beth and I drove down to Manhattan Beach to experience the little yarn shop that is TWIST. I love the entire name of this shop, "Twist, Yarns of Intrigue." So true!

Twist is PACKED with interesting and beautiful yarn!

The owner, Cathy, was very helpful, charming and gave us an wonderful explanation of the uniqueness of their yarns. Cathy has a terrific selection of high-quality accessories, buttons, bags and more. Twist is truly an inspiring shop. We spent lots of time and money at Twist, but it was totally worth it!! I just became a member of Twist's group on Ravelry! Hi, my name is Ellen and I'm a Twistaholic!

Handmaiden's "Sea Silk" @ Twist - Yummmmmm!

After tearing ourselves away from this perfect, tiny yarn shop, Beth and I drove a few miles to Main St., downtown El Segundo. If you've never been to this little area, you should definitely visit. This area of El Segundo is a real throwback to small town, USA. There are some cute little restaurants, lots of shops and The Slipt Stitch yarn shop on Main St. We had a nice lunch at the Main Street Cafe and then walked over to The Slipt Stitch. This shop is the sister store to Yarns Unlimited in Santa Monica. Similar yarns are in both shops, many national brands. They have high-end and low-end yarns.

Beth, shopping at The Slipt Stitch

Slipt Stitch is organized and almost spacious for a yarn shop! They have classes and lots of books and accessories. The owner, Patricia is very nice. Naturally, we had to purchase a few items here too.
Our last drive-by was in nearby Westchester. We almost got out of the car after driving by Needlepoints West, but we were both yarned-out for the day. We'll save this little shop for another field trip day.
Thanks for indulging me on an uneeded yarn crawl, Beth Doll!

Love Twist. It's my go-to when I need to get the bride a little pick-me-up. And Cathy always has something tremendous that I won't find anywhere else... like those terrific wooden crochet hooks.
