The month is flying by and the count down to Christmas has begun!
We have had plenty of organised customers dropping in to pick up gift vouchers, yarn, needle sets, ball winders, swifts and other accessories to pop under the tree for a loved one.
Envirosax has brought out some beautiful new bag styles, just in time for Christmas!
They are just perfect for brightening up the weekly grocery shop but they also have many other uses including school library bags, swim bags, overnight bags and of course project bags for those larger projects like blankets!
I have topped up our stock with favourites plus some of the new designs and to celebrate our Envirosax range is our Friday Favourite.
Stock up now for those last minute stocking stuffers.
Bright cotton colours and new pattern books
Tangled Yarns bundles tied up with strings
These are a few of my favourite things!
Friday Favourite Conditions – Applies to in stock items only. No custom orders or lay-by. 10% Off does not apply to kits as they are already reduced. Special prices apply from launch of newsletter until 9am Monday.

A few gift suggestions for the little ones this week.
I love creating things for my girls that encourage them to use their imagination
Next week we will be back with ideas to stock your play kitchens!
Peta, our creative mind behind the stunning Stitch Pixie bags has been working hard to get us some more project bags before Christmas!
We have new stock in both the small and large sized bags plus some new prints.
The large bags are 5 inches high x 5 inches wide and 11.5 inches long. They are suited for projects using straight needles or larger projects.
This is our last delivery from Peta before Christmas, so best get in quick!
Fabulous for blocking lace patterned socks and displaying your pretty socks in general, these will make a great gift for Christmas.
We also have new stock of our interchangeable needle sets, tips and cables.
I keep finding more and more things to make with this beautiful yarn… it’s hard to pick what to start first!

We’ve received more stock of our Addi needle range earlier this week including more of our fixed circular needles – from 30cm lengths all the way up to 100cm.
After a very popular Friday Favourite last week, we will be receiving a much needed top up of our Biggan Design DK Merino over the weekend.
The versatility of this yarn is amazing and as it is simple to pop in the washing machine for cleaning a great choice for baby and children’s wear.

Two of my previous students from an Intermediate class I held a few weeks ago have brought back their finished projects to share!
In the class they dyed up 8 mini skeins of 4ply merino to be used for a Dipped Infinity Cowl by Laure Chau.
We are hoping to be able to fit more dyeing workshops into our calendar early next year, keep an eye out in the coming newsletters for details.
We are continuing our ever popular Technical Support classes on Tuesday afternoons, Thursday mornings, Thursday evenings and Saturdays right up until Christmas for all those last minute crafting needs.
Please make sure you phone the store to book in so you don’t miss out!
Thank you to everyone who has sent in feedback for what you would like to see in our classes in 2012. We will endeavour to accommodate as many suggestions as possible – it’s not too late to let us know! You can find our December, January and February calendar here.
We already have students booking into our Learn to Knit class beginning Thursday 14th January from 6-8pm. Maybe someone you know has made it their new year’s resolution to learn to knit? Now is their chance!

|On the Needles at Tangled Yarns
Last weekend I had a customer come in with the most beautiful African Flower Blanket made from our Biggan Design DK Merino.
There are absolutely no words to describe this gorgeous piece of work! I could see this as a wall hanging – utterly stunning.
Derrin and Alice have had a little Cable Braided Necklace Knit-A-Long this past week – Derrin has made hers in our Debbie Bliss Andes and Alice has made hers as a gift for a friend in our Cascade Ultra Pima.
Very quick to work up, these would make a great stocking stuffer!
I’m sure it will get plenty of wear over the festive season.
This time I went down a needle size to 4.5mm and up a pattern size to compensate for the gauge difference.
I also added the button bands so that I could use some of our new super cute buttons.
I am not happy with how the lace panel on the back is not symmetrical so my Waterlily Ultra Pima is destined to become something else.
Some simple decoration ideas this week, to fill in the gaps on your tree…
