We excitedly pounced on a shipment from Cascade last Friday, only to open it and discover that our order had been mixed up! We received a London yarn stores winter yarns and they received our beautiful silky summer cottons.
Instead of sending all of that yarn back across the ocean we decided to keep it.
This means we have new luscious stock of some yarns we normally wouldn’t have in abundance at this time of year including our fantastic Cascade Eco Wool, Cascade 220 Worsted and some Cascade 220 Worsted Superwash.
Unfortunately this means that our shipment of summer yarns had to be re-posted. We had hoped that it would be here today but it looks like early next week now.
With the winter knitting season ramping up in the US and Christmas just around the corner we are finding that orders are taking a little longer to arrive.
We have several very large and exciting shipments from different suppliers on the way, we are itching to get our fingers on the new yarns….they will certainly be worth the wait!!
Enjoy our happy accident and grab some Cascade while it is our extra special Friday Favourite! with 20% off Cascade Eco Wool, Cascade 220 Worsted and Cascade 220 Worsted Superwash.

|Knit A Long|
It has been great to see what you have all been knitting for the guys in your life!
I was taken by some pattern & yarn pairings that we helped customers with earlier in the week and I thought I’d share them with you.

|Jane Austen Knits 2011|
Enter the world of Jane Austen through timeless knitting patterns inspired by her treasured novels.
Remember a time when knitting was a common practice among society? Remember a time when a hand-knitted garment was typical? Now you can with Jane Austen Knits.
Interweave’s latest special issue from the editors of Spin-Off magazine, explores the knits of the Regency Era in 144 pages packed with stunning photography.
Weather you are an avid knitter, a Jane Austen connoisseur, a lover of the Regency Era, or all of he above, you will find something to fit your fancy in this magazine.
I was stunned when our delivery from last Friday only made it until Tuesday before selling out!
Some pattern ideas for the vibrant Noro Taiyo…
Alise by Dutch Knitting Design
Dancing Leg Warmers by Emma Niesl
Capucine by Adela Illichmanova
I can see the finish line with the girls granny square blankets……hopefully I will have two finished blankets by next week.
|Social Knitting & Crochet
If you find you need your creative fix during the week we have a social group that meets on a Wednesday morning from 10am-1pm. This is a great opportunity to mingle with some like-minded crafters and escape from the heat that is quickly setting in to be a Brisbane summer.
This group is a little bit quieter than our Thursday evening or Saturday groups so if you feel overwhelmed by larger groups this is ideal!
There’s no cost to come along, and we have coffee and tea and something sweet to purchase. We would love to see you!
|On the Needles at Tangled Yarns
Liz is also working on a very special project, a absolutely stunning throw in our Noro Sekku.
We are currently sold out of the lace-weight Sekku at the moment but we will have more shortly.
Lauren has been a bit quiet the past couple of weeks as she has been diligently working on her Noro Stripe Socks. These socks began as a Christmas present in 2009 from her kitties and they have been worked on in spits and spurts over the past two years – strangely enough, always around this time of year!
This pattern is Delicious Knee Socks by Laura Chau and they include all the shaping required for a perfect fit in the calves, and a nifty little slip stitch pattern to hide the jog that occurs when working stripes in the round.
Instead of ribbing at the top, she’s used a concealed hem, and encased some elastic to make sure they stay up.
Sadly, these two colours of Noro Silk Garden Sock have been discontinued, but they would look lovely in any of their colourways.
Isn’t it just divine!
If you are not lucky enough to have some Cashmere / Mohair lace-weight in your stash this pattern would also look amazing in our Debbie Bliss Angel.
Some more pattern ideas for some handmade decorations.
