Knitting magazines are easy to collect with such great articles and then there is the patterns that tempt.
If you feel like you are drowning in back issues of your favourite Interweave Knits or KnitScene mags perhaps it is time to pick up the Interweave Magazine CD Collections.
Each CD Collection contains the four seasonal issues for the year and in some cases a bonus issues of Knits Gifts.
We stock from 2002 – 2009 plus the two KnitScene Collections, 2005 – 2007 & 2007 -2009.

I am forever searching for new and unique yarns to add to our range, especially at this time of year when many feel it too warm to knit with wool.
I was particularly taken with beautiful yarns by Japanese brand Pierrot Yarns.
With a vast offering of cotton, linen and silk blends it was hard to know where to start! Not to mention the stunning colours.
To launch our new Pierrot Yarns collection we have four new yarns in-stock –
Needle size: 2.5 – 3 US or 3 – 3.25mm
120 yards / 110 meters per 30 grams
180 yards / 165 meters per 30 grams
547 yards / 500 meters per 100 grams
70% Plant Fibre / 30% Silk
As always I have included some pattern suggestions for each of the yarns –
Another shipment of
Addi needles has hit the shelves this week.
We have full stock of the complete range of Addi fixed circular needles, along with both Click Sets and accessories to keep you needles clicking through the next few weeks.

|On the Needles at Tangled Yarns
Earlier this week Alice finished her Miette by Andi Satterlund. She has used our Brown Sheep Cotton Fleece in colour October Leaf. This is such a sweet summer cardi, idea for layering over light dresses.
I made the fatal mistake of working on him around my little girls….they both pounced on him and begged me for one each! Looks like I will be making a second very soon….good thing he was quick and simple to whip up.
He looks super cute hanging out in our Spring Tree in the shop front window.
With the arrival of our new Pierrot yarns this week it was inevitable that there would be a new cast on. I fell in love with the sunny yellow, just ideal to brighten up my wardrobe.
This will become Adrift by Carol Feller.
