This week has been a busy one!

We have had an explosion of new stock hit the shop, lots of our most popular yarns are back in stock….plus a little something new.

It has also been my mums Birthday during week, so I had the opportunity to surprise her with a couple of small finished projects.

I’ll share more later in the newsletter.

The urge to learn something new is strong!

Most of our January and February classes have filled already but we do have some spots left a couple of great classes.

In the Round

Knitting seamlessly in the round is essential for this seasons hottest knitwear items – hats, cowls and of course socks!

Toe Up Socks

Keep your toes toasty with our Toe Up Socks class.

No running out of yarn half way through your toe!

On the Needles at Tangled Yarns

Hot off the needles!

Anita finished her Autumn Vines by Alana Dakos in record time – must be something about knitting with our divine Madelinetosh Pashmina.


Such a perfect pattern & yarn match…I may need to make one myself.

Derrin has whipped up a Summer Flies Mini Shawl Sampler by Donna Griffin in preparation for our Learn to Lace class next weekend.


This class is fully booked now but we will add further classes to our future class schedule.

After enjoying the Striped Study that she knit last year Lauren has been eager to cast on the sister pattern Different Lines by Veera Valimaki.


Both of these yarns (Malabrigo Sock in Solis and Candombe) have been different projects that weren’t quite right but they are perfect being striped together.

Lauren is itching to cast on Cria by Ysolda Teague (from Little Red in the City) in our Malabrigo Arroyo so there has been lots of swatching on the needles. She will be ready to cast on for the cooler weather!

Some old outstanding WIP’s off the needles for me this week.

I started a pair of Fetching mitts by Cheryl Niamath early last year for my Grandmother….as many of you know sadly she passed away before I managed to finish them.

They have been sitting in my basket at home, waiting for me to be able to make a decision about finishing them.

Over the holidays I re-visited all of my projects and decided that I was ready to finish them and that they would be perfect as a special gift for my mums birthday this week.

I hope that they hold many special memories for my mum.


Mums other Birthday project – my Claudia Scarf was finished with 2 grams of yarn to spare.


The Pierrot Yarns Beauty Cotton Silk blocked up beautifully after a gentle wash with SOAK.

On a run with finishing I decided my next target would be my Summer Waves Cardi by Vera Sanon.


This is my forth finished cardigan in our Cascade Ultra Pima this summer, oh – plus the two little
Jane Cardi’s for my girls.

Obviously my yarn of choice for this time of year….I have cast on another.

This is a test knit for the wonderful Georgie Hallam – keep a look out for the pattern release soon!
