After all the rain over the long weekend it has been lovely to see the blue sky & sun shining this week.
With the evenings and early mornings still being fresh we have enjoyed helping plenty of customers start some new projects.
Hats, scarves & blankets are all high on the hit list!
Our constant flow of stock has continued and we are madly re-ordering to keep up.
Some exciting shipments are winging their way to us as I type! I have been checking the tracking daily….
|Interweave Spin Off
The latest issue of Interweave Spin Off has just arrived!
The issue also includes a sub-focus on socks–one of the best portable projects we’ve found. Spinning Tips takes a look at why you would overply (for socks, of course), Ann Budd shares socks she made before and after taking a workshop at the Spin-Off Autumn Retreat (SOAR) last year, and Rachel Rodnunsky shares a pattern she has developed for handspun crochet socks.
In addition to spindles and socks, enjoy topics such as taking a closer look at the role of crimp in comfort, how to work with singles yarn, as well as scarf and mitt patterns.

It seems we all can’t get enough of the stunning colours. We have even increased our range with several new colours in Taiyo, Kureyon and Silk Garden Sock.
Our almost weekly delivery of KnitPro needles and accessories has arrived, including top ups off straights, interchangeable tips and the super versatile interchangeable sets that we had sold out of last week.
We love introducing knitters to the joy of good quality tools and it is wonderful that we receive such great feedback when people.
The new Long Lace Click sets sold out in the first weekend! They have been so popular that they are back ordered with new stock due to arrive in Australia next week.
|Classes & Social Groups
Next weekend we start the first of our double sessions of our Learn To Knit course!
Our bookings simply exploded this month so we have had to schedule two back to back LTK course to squeeze everyone in.
We love introducing new students into the wonderfully addictive world that is all things yarn, needles & hooks.
Our social groups are also expanding with lots of new faces joining us on a Wednesday, Thursday evening and all day Saturday.
If you need some ‘me’ time pop in and join us!
Bookings are essential for all classes, please contact us in store or firstname.lastname@example.org to book your place.
Social knitting & crochet is free of charge and everyone is welcome regardless of your skill level!
|On the needles at Tangled Yarns
Late last week Derrin brought in the most divine project to share with me.
This is her Recuerdos de ifancia by Gabriela (crochet)…
As she used a lace weight instead of fingering weight she repeated the body of the pattern before crocheting the lace border as written.
The finished shawl is amazingly soft and delicious to wear.
(so much so that she is lucky I gave it back after photographing it!! hahahaa)
Thebutton choice was a hard one for me but I decided to go with our 25mm Cut Out.
Possibly inspired by the sunshine I whipped up a quick, chunky cowl in ourCascade 128 Chunky.
I had actually cast this on last week, single stranded with 7mm needles but after helping one of our wonderful customers, Ros at social knitting last Saturday I ripped it and started again.
Ros needed a quick gift for a friend so after much browsing on Ravelry used two skeins of our Cascade 128 chunky, double stranded and had her cowl finished in three hours!
Second time around I double stranded the yarn and used 10mm needles so it is super thick and squishy.
