With the little people back at school, we’ve been picking up temporarily set-aside projects and thinking about what else needs to “fall” onto our needles and hooks.

Luckily we’re not alone. Lots of our customers have been in this week, picking up supplies and planning new projects.

And with a new round of ‘Learn To’ courses starting next week, there are a whole new crop of knitters and crocheters about to catch the bug!

Cascade

Another welcome delivery from Cascade has plumped our shelves with lovely yarns in all shades of the rainbow (and a few more besides).

Socks are always a popular project when the mercury drops, and we’ve received a much-needed injection of sock yarn to keep your toes cosy.

tangledYARNS

Several of our other Cascade yarns have also been replenished.

Listen, can you hear the sound of summer?

It’s the hum of the big old bumblebee, busy about your roses, and the hoot of the barn owl. It’s the sound of friends munching buttery sweetcorn and slurping homemade lemonade (if you can hear it above the ripples of laughter).

And, if you stand very still, you’ll hear the rustle of a field of wheat and the splash of a stream tumbling about your toes.

You’ll hear your own sigh of contentment.

On the Needles at Tangled Yarns

It’s been a busy week for finishing and we’ve got quite a variety of projects to show off!

Bryn finished the cutest little Bunny Girl in a DottyDress, shown chilling out on our front table.

I won’t be showing this to my girls!
tangledYARNS

Apparently Bunny has a wardrobe of beautiful new dresses already on the needles…

Alice finished the beautiful Messaline in soft pink MillaMia to keep her daughter warm at ballet class.

tangledYARNS

She must be the sweetest little ballerina there, particularly when she teams it with adorable stripey Legwarmies in MillaMia and Debbie Bliss Cashmerino Baby, knitted by Grandma Kim.

Roslyn finished two lovely shawls this week – first up,
Hitchhiker in Zauberball. We haven’t had this colour since last year but, after seeing it worked up, I feel we’re going to have to order some more!

tangledYARNS

Ros is also the first of our Mystery Knitalong participants to show off her finished Beltane Shawl, knitted in The Fibre Company’s Meadow.

Seeing her finished shawl makes me even more eager to finish my own!

Maureen has three projects to share with us this week!

Maureen had tried using her Acadia in Granite on a different project, which hadn’t worked out. But when we got our new colour, Strawberry, inspiration hit – the two colours are a striking combination in the Quaking Aspen Shawl.

tangledYARNS

With the chilly weather, a nice warm cardi always comes in handy. Maureen finished her aYellow Brick Road Cardi in a warm golden shade of Cascade 220 Worsted.

But it’s the details that enchant – a lacy yoke, welted cuffs and oh, those buttons!

tangledYARNS

Maureen used two colours of Malabrigo Sock from her stash in these lovely girly mitts, a test knit for designer Marlaina “Marly” Bird.

Brrr! Someone told me that the past couple of days have been Brisbane’s coldest in several years, and I can certainly believe it. It’s been positively icy!

It’s great weather for knitting and crocheting though and we have been struggling to keep the yarn on our shelves. It is flying out the door faster than we can order it.

We’ll be extra happy to see some more of our yarn orders arrive next week.

Ball Winders & Swifts

After a small hiatus, we finally have our Royal ball winders back in stock.

We’ve also received a shipment of timber tabletop swifts. Beautifully crafted from birch, these swifts can be freestanding or clamped to a table, and will make light work of winding your skeins into centre pull balls.

tangledYARNS

Cotton Fleece is always a favourite at Tangled Yarns. Not only is it a fabulous yarn for blankets, cushion covers and other homewares, but the combination of soft cotton with wool also makes it a great choice for children’s garments and transeasonal tops and accessories.

The small reprieve from yarn deliveries last week has meant that we have been hit with lots of big fat boxes over the last few days, overflowing with yarn – it’s always such fun unpacking them all.

The response to our latest round of classes & workshops has been overwhelming, with many of our classes filling up extremely quickly.

In an effort to reduce the waiting lists, we have added yet another new class time-slot to our calendar – “Learn To” is now available on Wednesdays!

Full details are in the Classes section of this newsletter.

Addi

Our fixed Addi needles are always popular, in particular the tiny little 30cm circulars – ideal for all the sleeve knitting that is happening with this cold. They’re a great alternative for those of us who don’t want to juggle DPNs or Magic Loop for the full length of a sleeve.

Recently we have added the new Sock Rockets to our collection.

The Sock Rockets are super fine needles those that prefer pointier tips, making them ideal for lace and sock knitting.

tangledYARNS

There is a little confusion over the name – they have blue cords and are called Sock Rockets in the US. For the rest of the world they have red cables and they are packaged exactly the same as regular Addi Turbos.


tangledYARNS

The Sock Rockets are available from 2mm to 5.5mm in the 60cm, 80cm and 100cm lengths, and from 2mm to 2.75mm in the 120cm length. At the moment, we only have certain sizes in stock, but will be expanding our range over time.

Cascade

Our large selection of yarns from Cascade remain strong favourites with many of our customers.

Several of our most popular winter yarns have received some much-needed topping up this week, just in time for turning out some quick, warm knits for the cold that has finally gripped Brisbane.

On the Needles at Tangled Yarns

After seeing the gorgeous Button-tab Hat Rachel knitted a couple of weeks ago, Anita turned out a copycat for her little girl. It was an instant hit, and has been keeping her head warm since it came off the needles – except, of course, for a brief stint in front of the camera!

Anita has striped our Noro Kibou and Berroco Ultra Alpaca Light.

tangledYARNS

Earlier this week, a friend of mine posted pictures of her new baby on Facebook. To my delight, Baby Number Four was wearing a hat I had knitted for Baby Number Two, who is now five!

Knowing that my handknits have been appreciated, naturally I needed to welcome the new arrival with her very own hat – the Alfalfa Baby Hat in two gorgeous shades of Cascade 220 Superwash Aran.
tangledYARNS

Both of our projects this week highlight a trick for increasing or decreasing the size of relatively simple patterns like hats.

Looking through the project pages of other Ravelers who had knitted the Alfalfa Baby Hat, I noticed that many thought the pattern knitted up a little small. To ensure that the hat would be big enough, I knitted it in an aran weight yarn on 5mm needles rather than in the worsted weight yarn on 4mm needles that the pattern called for.

Anita had the opposite problem – sizing down an adult-sized pattern for her six-year-old. By substituting DK weight yarn for worsted, she ended up with a perfect mini-me version.

27.06.14


After an almost constant flow of yarn over the past weeks, this week we have concentrated a little more on topping up our range of needles, hooks and tools.

Deliveries from two of our main needle / hook suppliers – Knit Pro & Clover – have all hit the shelves in record time.

MKAL

Last Sunday, those of us who are taking part in the Kelbourne Woolens May Day MKAL received our final clue.

It has been a great knit-a-long, with the girls at Kelbourne Woolens thoughtfully structuring the clues to lead us into ever more difficult techniques, while providing lots of tips and information to help us on our way.

Unfortunately life (and small people) sometimes get in the way of knitting time, so Anita and I have not got as far as we had hoped. I am up to clue 4, which begins the “true” lace knitting with patterning on both the right and wrong sides of the work and requires quite a lot more focus.
tangledYARNS

As added security, I’ve added stitch markers after each repeat so I can pick up any small mistakes more quickly, and placed a lifeline just in case I need to rip back.

There has been a lot of discussion about lifelines as a result of this MKAL, so I thought I’d provide a quick tutorial on how to place a lifeline in your work.

Generally, it’s good to use waste yarn that is the same or a lighter weight than the yarn that you are working with, and in a contrasting colour.

Using a darning needle, thread the lifeline through the stitches on your needle, taking care not to pierce your working yarn.

tangledYARNS

I like to place a lifeline after each vertical repeat, once I know that I have the correct stitch count.

Then, if I need to rip back, I can simply pull out my needles and rip – knowing that my work will not go back further than the lifeline and I will be starting the next section with a clean slate.

In the early hours of this coming Sunday, participants in the May Day MKAL will receive the final update – a complete PDF containing the entire shawl pattern.

In conjunction with the end of the MKAL, Kelbourne Woolens will be posting a round-up of finished shawls on their blog! So if yours is finished, blocked and photographed, head over to the official thread on Ravelry to find out how to get yours included.

Remember, we’d love to see your finished projects too, so don’t forget to post photos in the Tangled Yarns MKAL thread!

Noro

We can’t seem to keep Noro on our shelves, especially our newest addition, Kibou.

This week we have new stock of several colours of Kibou, as well as the colourful Taiyo Sock.

To complement this bright splash of yarn, we have a small handful of Noro books to inspire you.

Hooked on Noro
by Nicki Trench

The miraculous colours of Noro Yarns make it perfect for crochet. The colours trickle through your fingers and merge onto your crochet hook so subtly that you will be surprised to find stripes of perfectly blended colours appearing as you work.
tangledYARNS
tangledYARNS

Hooked on Noro is full of elegant and useful projects for all levels of ability. There are projects for both home and fashion.

Kibou
by Claudia Wersing

Noro has once again succeeded in capturing a rainbow of colours in its yarns which reflect the joy and sensuality of summer.

tangledYARNS

Kibou is a collection of garments and accessories designed especially for Noro Kibou.


Another all time favourite is the spectacular Noro Magazine!


tangledYARNS

The latest issue has arrived this week – Issue 4 (Spring / Summer 2014).


tangledYARNS

Packed with patterns and features, including book reviews and a recap of the newest yarns.

Get crafty with chevrons, play with open spaces, mix knit & purl to make texture and crochet flower power…this issue, colour is making waves!

tangledYARNS
tangledYARNS
tangledYARNS

 The designs include:

The art of the negative space – What can’t be seen sometimes has the biggest impact

Soft & light – Retro-chic shoulder wraps

Crochet into bloom – Flower motifs perk up a plethora of crocheted accessories

Get on the bright wavelength – Curves ahead: in a winding riot of colour, lacey summer looks are anything but dainty

Colour takes a walk on the wide side – Rich in tactile texture, these socks are made for walking

Instant gratification – Quick knits you can finish in a weekend (or two)


tangledYARNS

Plus we have topped up with more copies of Issue 3 (Autumn / Winter 2013) as it is perfect for the cooler weather.

tangledYARNS

Issue 3 features 35 bright and beautiful projects, including designs for coats, skirts, cowls, caps & hats.

Knit Pro

We have filled the needle racks with new stock, topping up our extensive range of Knit Pro needles, plus adding a few new options to the collection.

Do you sometimes find the 40cm length cable a tad too short and the 60cm length cable that teensy bit too long? We have the solution – a new 50cm cable!

tangledYARNS
Designed to go with the regular length tips, the 50cm cables are a perfect addition to your cable collection.

The response to our addition of the super special Karbonz needles has been fantastic, with many people now favouring these over the Symfonie and Nova options.

To round out our Knit Pro Interchangeable needle collection we have added theshorter Karbonz tips, which are designed to work with the 40cm cables.

tangledYARNS

A recent addition to our shelves has been these nifty Knit Pro pompom makers. With the school holidays upon us they have been flying out the door, with one final set left.

On the Needles at Tangled Yarns

When her brother-in-law requested a cowl that could double as a beanie, Rachel found the perfect solution – I heart pompoms hat by Karen Borrel. Worked in two suitably masculine shades of The Fibre Company’s Organik, and with manly tassels instead of pompoms, we’re sure it will be a hit.


tangledYARNS

tangledYARNS
Liz’s new cowl showcases beautifully the perfect match of the long colour changes in Noro Silk Garden and the entrelac technique – the colours weave back and forth to create a patchwork effect that is just stunning.

tangledYARNS
tangledYARNS
tangledYARNS

The pattern is the Entrelac Scarf used in our popular Introduction to Entrelac workshops, but Liz has grafted the ends together to form a seamless loop – a truly amazing piece of finishing!!

One of our Thursday evening regulars, Christine finished the slouchy, stripey BlueSand Cardigan in a palette of complementary blues and greens from our Biggan Design DK range.

tangledYARNS

I’ve long been after a warm worsted-weight cardigan for cool mornings and winter days out at the park with the girls and after concentrating most of this month on just one project I’ve finally got one!

Linney by Amy Christoffers fit the bill perfectly, delivering both warmth and style, particularly in this cheery yellow shade of Berroco Ultra Alpaca.

The Simple Things

tangledYARNS

The June issue of The Simple Things is is store now!


tangledYARNS


When dawn comes early and dusk comes late, it seems like there’s all the time in the world to do, or not do, stuff. Time for strawberries, of course, for a clinking glass of elderflower cordial, to admire a single bloom or go looking for ladybirds.

Embrace T-shirt weather and tea bread loaves, walking and talking, sailing and snoozing. Being busy merely means there are peas to be picked, fishing rods to be held. It means taking time to live well.

Time to enjoy The Simple Things.

On the Needles at Tangled Yarns

Rachel is still busy building her wardrobe of accessories. This week she’s finished a gorgeous new hat, the Smocked Slouch in Debbie Bliss Cashmerino Aran.

tangledYARNS

She also finished a super smooshy Part Deux in seven complementary shades of The Fibre Company’s Road to China Light.

tangledYARNS

tangledYARNS

It is all about the stripes this week. Rachel was smitten with Laurens version of Rayures by Amy Miller she was inspired to make her own…well almost! The thought of all that stocking stitch and colour changes made it a little less appealing. Luckily the lovely Liz came to the rescue with her knitting machine!

I am not sure where the week has gone this week, the days have flown past in a blur of colourful deliveries, fun class sessions and a bustling shop full of customers picking up supplies and project planning!

She also finished a pair of
Nalu Mitts in our lovely soft MillaMia Naturally Soft Merino.

tangledYARNS

Alice also whipped up a pair of mitts. Her long Wandering mitts in Malabrigo Rios from her stash will be ideal for keeping her hands and wrists warm on chilly mornings.

Liz transformed a skein of Taiyo Sock into an extra wide, short version of the Splash Cowl.

tangledYARNS

Rachel has two new hats to show off this week.


tangledYARNS

First up is the super cute Orchid & Fairy Lights in Debbie Bliss Cashmerino Aran.

tangledYARNS

Our new Kibou caught her eye when it came in last week. She combined it with our Berroco Ultra Alpaca Light for a deliciously girly take on the Button-tab Hat.

tangledYARNS

My mum asked me to make a lacy, slouchy beanie for a friend’s birthday. Frick Frick BERET! was the perfect choice, in deliciously soft Road to China Light.

tangledYARNS

Anita and I have a somewhat odd way of blocking our hats, but it works brilliantly. So we thought we’d share it with you all here.

You start conventionally, by letting your hat soak for 15-30 minutes in lukewarm water with a splash of Soak. Gently squeeze out the excess water.

Partially inflate the balloon and then put it inside the hat – because you blow up the balloon inside the hat, you avoid stretching out the brim.

tangledYARNS

And when the hat is dry – pop! – out comes the balloon and you have a perfectly blocked hat!

Before…

tangledYARNS
and after!

Mother Nature keeps taunting us with the promise of winter in the cooler mornings and evenings, while the days remain balmy and beautiful. In defiance of the fickle weather, however, we’re looking forward to three whole days of knitting and crochet this long weekend.

We’ll be closed on Monday for the public holiday but our online store will be open for business as always.

In preparation for the long weekend, our regular flow of deliveries has continued. Many of our favourite yarns received a top-up this week, plus we’ve added some new goodies to brighten up our shelves!

Mystery Knit-A-Long

I spent this week catching up on Clue B and making a start on Clue C. I am not quite finished but hopefully I will get it knocked over in time for the new clue to arrive this Sunday.

The shawl is knitting up beautifully so far, and it’s great fun finding out what’s in store as each clue is unveiled.

Both Anita and I are at about the same place, heaps of fun to see it working up in the different colours.

With the temperature going up and down like a yoyo, it’s hard to know whether to knit warm woollen pullovers and beanies or crochet lacy linen scarves! It’s no wonder that the weather has become somewhat of an obsession…

Here though we are still bravely preparing for a winter which, although it officially starts on Sunday, shows no sign of settling in for more than a day or so.

 

Mystery Knit-A-Long

The Kelbourne Woolens MKAL is keeping us on our toes – knitted in the lightweight Meadow, it is an ideal project for this on-again-off-again weather!

tangledYARNS

Clue C is due to arrive in our inboxes this Sunday after a little break last week.

I am still yet to catch up with Clue B…perhaps this weekend I can knock over both Clue B and C!

 

Clover

With two new Learn To Crochet courses starting this week, we have had a huge run on all things crochet!

Luckily, we’ve unpacked a nice big delivery from Clover, and we have all sizes of our Clover Soft Touch Hooks and Clover Amour Hooks back in stock.

tangledYARNS

Our Clover tools and accessories, including stitch markers, row counters and darning needles have all received a top up as well.

Brown Sheep

With the unusually warm weather, our cotton blend Brown Sheep Cotton Fleece has been a popular choice.

Our shelves have received a nice top up and are chock full of colour once again.

The shop has been buzzing this week with customers old and new stocking up for the winter months. It’s been lovely to have visitors from all around Australia and even from as far afield as Canada pop in to say hello.

We’ve turned out a new crop of knitters and crocheters from our Learn To classes, and are set to welcome a fresh contingent next week. And lots of you have been learning new skills through our workshops – last week, students variously learnt Continental knitting, circular knitting, and the entrelac technique.

Mystery Knit-A-Long

Although Clue 2 landed in our in-boxes last weekend, I’ve been so busy I haven’t yet managed to get to it!

Luckily there is no clue this weekend, so it’s a perfect time to catch up or – for those of you who have finished this clue – to rest up for the arrival of Clue C next Saturday May 31st.

Our needle shelves were looking rather empty until our massive shipment of Knit Pro needles arrived just in time for the weekend.

A fresh look at pattern and texture

tangledYARNS

Like a breath of fresh air, The Blue and White Issue brings all the beauty of spring. 

We celebrate the comfortable, confident fashions of Magnolia Pearl and admire the feat of engineering that lies beneath the frills and froth of wedding corsets.

We look at the many incarnations of lace from the Haute Couture designs of Iris Van Herpen to the rise of lace as a commodity in the 17th century.

The historic region of Flanders was built on the wealth of wool and linen, we show textile lovers the many ways to spend their time there…

On the Needles at Tangled Yarns

Last year, Anita cast on Caramel in yummy soft alpaca but didn’t manage to finish it before the warmer weather came along. The colder weather inspired her to pick it up and finish it and I’m sure it will get lots of wear this year!

Our prolific friend, Maureen, finished another Summer Carnival, this time in our Cascade 220 Superwash Sport.

tangledYARNS

The Fibre Company‘s Canoping Fingering has been popular, turning up in three of this week’s finished projects.

Maureen used five shades to create a beautiful vignette of blues in Drawing Nigh by Susan B. Anderson in Fibre Company Canoping Fingering.

She also finished this sweet Goffered Crescent Scarf – it’s so light and soft and, no doubt toasty warm (although we resisted test-wearing it…)

One of our new colours – Tanager – caught Rachel’s eye, and she transformed it into this delectable Frick Frick Beret.

Ooh, hasn’t it been cold this week? The chillier weather has put us in mind of cosy cowls and cardis, mitts and beanies.

So it couldn’t be a better time to announce the winner of our Facebook competition!

A while back, the lovely Kelly Brooker give us permission to give a lucky Tangled Yarns ‘liker’ a copy of the full Two Sides eBook which contains three wonderful patterns – This Side,With a Brim and Double Dip -all of which feature variegated or ‘leftover’ stripes complemented with stripes and slip-stitch ribs in a contrasting neutral.

Together with the pattern, we have a skein of our Berroco Ultra Alpaca Worsted in Winter White to mix with colours from your ‘leftovers’ stash.

Our lucky winner is…..


Sharon Bousfield!!

Congratulations Sharon, we will be in touch shortly to arrange the pattern and yarn to be sent your way!

Mystery Knit-A-Long

It’s fantastic that so many of you have decided to join us in Kelbourne Woolens’ Mystery Knit-a-long. Lots of our locals have popped in to select their yarn and we have been busy wrapping, packing & shipping off lovely little parcels of Meadow yarn so customers could cast on with us.

The first clue arrived in our inboxes early last Sunday morning, and Mother’s Day found many of us dutifully swatching … or naughtily casting on the first clue. (we’re not naming any names…)

This week we’ll be receiving the directions for Clue B, as well as information about the most common shawl shapes and how they’re created.

Remember that as the clues are released on Saturday US time, they arrive here a little later!

It may have taken me almost all week, but I have finally cast on and completed Clue A. So far I am loving the process and the Meadow is simply divine.

Designs by Tangled

This week I have another pattern ready to release: Cross My Heart.
tangledYARNS

I wanted to take the humble granny square and give it a quirky little twist.

Careful colour placement creates colourful crosses while a ‘no seam’, join-as-you-go method means you don’t have a huge amount of finishing at the end.

tangledYARNS

As with most of our patterns, we have tried to provide you with some niftytechniques that you can apply to many of your projects.

Cross My Heart is now available on Ravelry and we have a lovely selection of colours of Cascade 220 Superwash Worsted in stock!

Stitch Pixie

Our monthly delivery from the spectacular seamstress, Peta, has arrived.

Stitch Pixie Bags!!

We have new stock of all three styles of Stitch Pixie Bags, in gorgeous fabrics as always … but I am sure they won’t last long!

Best Daughter Award goes to our lovely Bryn, who knitted this stunning Sand and Sea Shawlette for Simone for Mother’s Day. It uses two shades of our Ella Rae Lace Merino – a warm neutral and a variegated – to great effect.
