What’s the UFO number for this month?

Do you see them?

They're watching you!

All those unfinished projects----


If you’re looking for a fun way to finish your WIPs or begin some new projects, this is the way to do it.

You begin by making a list of twelve projects.


Your list of twelve projects can include unfinished projects, new projects, parts of a large project, or a combination of the three. Each month, we'll draw a number which will identify the project you'll work on over the coming month. On the third Thursday of each month, we'll meet to share our projects and choose a new number. Just think! At the end of the year, you'll feel so good with all those FOs!


February - #2 (#8 is the floater this year)

*Next UFO meeting - March 21, 2024

What? UFO - Unfinished Objects

When? Third Thursday of each month 5:00 until 7:00

How? Work on the chosen number project from your list until the third Thursday

**For UFO projects, yarn does not have to be purchased from TWN.


What are you making?

Isn’t it fun to share your current project (or projects!) with friends? 

We love sharing with each other and with our customers. 


There’s definitely a twist to Diana’s new cowl.

She's knit a beautiful mobius!


Avery is looking so cute in the sweater she crocheted using Sirdar Jewelspun.


There are cats galore at TWN!

Betty Ann and Lisa knit hats with the Temple Cats pattern.

Lisa let her creativity run wild and she knit a headband, too.


This colorful Askance Cowl looks lovely on Linda!


Christi joined the Workshop Wednesday group and knit the Nightshift shawl.

Isn’t her shawl gorgeous?


At TWN, Casapinka’s patterns are some of our favs.

Take a look at Kathy’s Ric Rac shawl.

Sharon From Security would be proud!


Bookish Beverly has been working on a pair of socks.

She also made a happy hen for her daughter-in-law.



Needle Notes

Hello, everyone— 

The daffodils are out and that means spring is on the way! At TWN, we’re enjoying the warmer temps and bright sunshine. Spring and summer are great times to begin thinking about doing smaller projects like hats or socks. You might want to venture out into a new hobby, such as wool applique or embroidery. Looking for some ideas? Stop by the store. We’ll be happy to help you!

Take care,


That's it for our newsletter this month, but don’t forget to keep an eye on our Facebook page, blog, and website.
