Friday Favourites

We have had many of our wonderful customers pop in this week to pick up supplies before they head away on holidays.

It has been lovely to hear about exciting travel plans and to help organise patterns, yarn and needles.

One accessory that we have found invaluable is our Namaste Oh Snap! Pouches.

They are ideal for packing your holiday knitting as they easily hold everything that you need for a project, they pack well in suitcases, plus you can see exactly which project you are grabbing.

Organise your projects while our Oh Snap! Pouches are our Friday Favourite.

Stitches on needles and yarn on hooks

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.

(or finish of those belated Christmas pressies!)


On the Needles at Tangled Yarns

Projects are flying off the needles this week at Tangled Yarns! Much of our knitting and crochet at the moment is secret gift knitting so we can’t share them with you just yet……

There has also been a lot of last minute casting on….we are all hoping to avoid the Christmas Eve Cast-off!

My mum has been working away on some tiny scarfs for our family of reindeers that grace our front window. Each reindeer will have a different scarf, all made from Biggan Design DK Merino.


Earlier this week my 6yr old was in-store helping out while on school holidays a
nd she was delighted when she was allowed to paint Rudolph’s nose red!

Lauren is partially through another Liesl by Ysolda Teague in our Cascade Ultra Pima (3733 – Turquoise), this time for her sister.

After a false start when she first cast on, she’s well on her way to having it wrapped up and under the tree for Christmas.


After a ripping session last Saturday morning I cast on a second time with my Cascade Ultra Pima
(3763 – Waterlily). This time I am working on Summer Waves Cardi by Vera Sanon.

I have separated for the sleeves and have a few good inches of straight knitting to go now before picking up for the lovely lace.


This and my other projects will have to wait as I have some serious Christmas knitting to whip up!

Nothing like casting on 10 days before Christmas…

On Wednesday night I quickly cast on the first of two stockings for the end of my girls beds.

The pattern that I am using is Christmas Stocking with Stripes by Erssie Major. The yarn is a cheery selection of our Biggan Design DK Merino.

One down and one to go!!


(080 – White, 290 – Bright Orange, 405 – Lime & 955 – Hot Pink)

Megan is back with two temping treats to sustain us during the silly season…

Last Minute Shopping

We will be posting parcels right through the Christmas & New Year period.


As we post parcels all across Australia, it is best to check with Australia Post’s website to see when your parcel will arrive using their
postage calculator (our postcode is 4006).

We pride ourselves with a quick turnaround in our online and phone orders and 99% of the time we are able to ship the same day you order.

It is a busy time of the year for the postal service however, so we do recommend you use Express Post to ensure the best chance of arrival before Christmas.

Our gift vouchers can be made to any value and we will be processing vouchers right up until 4pm Brisbane time on Christmas Eve!!


Vouchers can be emailed to you if you do need a last minute gift.

You can order these online but it would probably be best to phone the store on 07 3666 0276 to make sure we catch the transaction if it is coming up to closing time.
