Another crisp winter week! It really is such a spectacular time of year.
Brisbane was greeted by a thick rolling fog yesterday morning before clearing to a perfect winter day.
Along with the sunshine we have had a busy week of stock deliveries!
We are loving the continual flow of new stock, new projects and new faces that comes with winter.
We have plenty to share with you this week – you may need to settle in with a hot coffee, pot of tea or perhaps a glass of wine…..
The much awaited first edition Noro Knitting Magazine has arrived!!

It is always exciting to add a new product to our store and our newBlocking Wire Kits are certainly no exception!
These wires stand apart from anything else on the market today.
Made from a super-elastic wire with seemingly magical flexibility, these blocking wires will not rust, tarnish, corrode, or easily kink.
They will not stain your knitting, and will last for many, many, many years!
You can arch and curve these wires as you need and they will always return to straight.
This special property allows these wires to be used over and over again without weakening from repeated bending and straightening.
Available in three great styles!
Ultra Fine Blocking Wires are designed especially for lace weight and light fingering weight lace work.
These are perfect for delicate lace pieces and are so flexible they can even handle a scalloped edge without damaging the wire!
Super Long Ultra Fine Blocking Wires
Super Long Ultra Fine Blocking Wires are designed especially for large pieces, such as circular shawls, scarves, blankets or anything with a really long edge.
Deluxe Set Ultra Fine Blocking Wires
The best of both worlds!
If you can’t decide between the previous two Blocking Wire Kits the Deluxe Set is the way to go.
Using just a couple of wires and some T-pins, your work will look amazingly professional after blocking.
More of our delicious Debbie Bliss stock has arrived.

We have had such an overwhelming response to our classes that we have had to add extra sessions to the schedule to cope with numbers.
Tomorrow we start the first of our back to back Learn To Knit courses.
We are now holding three classes on Saturdays and at times up to eight classes a week!!
It is such a buzz introducing new students into the world of knitting and crochet.
If you have missed out on our June classes we have a few places left in the next round starting in early July but they are filling fast.
If you are looking for something a little more challenging we have our Pop Blanket classes starting soon!
Bookings are essential for all classes, please contact us in store or email@example.com to book your place.
|On the needles at Tangled Yarns
Anita has been churning out the finished projects this week!
To avoid all of that seaming she has used a Tubular cast on and knitted the body in one piece. Anita has also incorporated several other clever techniques that have made the garment completely seam free.
Our yarn choice was our Cascade 220 Worsted in a lovely Peony Pink (#2449).
After a cleaner look Anita chose to knit the sleeves straight, decreasing for just before the ribbing and then finished off with a beautiful tubular cast off.
My mum has been busy this week finishing off some tiny newborn knits for my cousins little boy.
Kelly has designed a wonderful pattern that will now be my ‘go to’ newborn knit pattern. So many ways to personalise it, add stripes, tweed yarn, funky buttons.
I had put it down after finishing the lovely lace panel in the yoke and was side tracked by so many other projects….as I usually do!
Once I was working on it again I utterly loved knitting it, a very clever design. I have used the same yarn and colour as Anita, our Cascade 220 Worsted.
I like Anita, decided to not do the puffy sleeves as the ultra sweet, candy pink is already super girly.
With the new delivery of Jo Sharp Silkroad Tweed I have been able to start a project for my mum. She fell in love with Vodka Lemonade by Thea Colman some time back and we were just waiting for the perfect yarn to match.
I am making a few mods, adding a couple of extra stitches to the moss stitch edge to accommodate buttons and I will use slanted increases instead of the yarn over increases for a more streamlined raglan.
