On the Needles at Tangled Yarns

Another of our wonderful customers popped in recently with a finished project to share.
This is our Vintage Missoni Inspired Blanket in our Brown Sheep Cotton Fleece.

I love seeing the different takes on the colour combinations!


She had also finished a great version of the Noro Striped Scarf by Jared Flood in our Noro.


Derrin has finished a stunning Different Lines by Veera Valimaki for her lovely boss who has moved to another office and has always admired Derrins knitting.


Kim whipped up a quick Storm Cloud Shawlette by in our Noro Taiyo.

A single ball of colour #1 and 9.00mm needles has created this adorable swirl of colour that would brighten up any winter wardrobe.


I have been working away on a second little cardi for my cousins little boy. They are visiting Australia shortly and will find our Winter a little chilly!

I must admit that I found it difficult to find many little boy patterns that appealed….

This is Sunnyside by Tanis Lavallee in our Debbie Bliss Baby Cashmerino (colour 058).

I have made some small modifications including the cables. They now mirror each other instead of all slanting the same direction….I certainly like my symmetry.

I can’t wait to add the simple metal buttons!


I will have a little yarn left over so time permitting I might make a matching little beanie, perhaps something striped?

Last weekend was my wonderful dads birthday.

I had made him a hat for his birthday but ended up giving it to him last month as it was so cold. I wanted something to give him on the day so I grabbed a skein of our Cascade 128 Chunky and made a Man Thing by Justyna Lorkowska last Saturday evening.


Still on my winter hat kick I dropped into the shop a couple of Sundays ago and cast on a second Rose Red by Ysolda.

After wearing my one from last year over the past few weekends I quickly remembered why it was one of my favourite hast to knit and wear.

This time I have used our Madelinetosh Pashmina and knitted the largest size to compensate for the slightly finer yarn and smaller needles.

The hat fits perfectly with just the right amount of slouch.

Warm Head, Warm Heart!
Head Full of Love

This month we have collaborated with Queensland Theatre Company to bring you an exciting promotion!

Thanks to the QTC we have a double pass for Head Full of Love on Saturday 21st July!


Head Full of Love is the story of two remarkable women and the unlikely but inspiring friendship which forms between them. It invites you to look differently at the possibilities of the humble beanie: a much-loved everyday item and an extension of our selves and the everyday lives we wear.

This intricate, warm and wisely told tale by Australian playwright Alana Valentine is directed by Wesley Enoch and stars Colette Mann and Roxanne McDonald.

In line with this heart-warming production, Queensland Theatre Company is putting out the call for winter warmers to fill their Beanie Bin and assist those who are really feeling the cold this winter.

The QTC Beanie Bin is located in the Cremorne Theatre foyer and they are calling for good quality second hand (or new!) hand knits, beanies, scarves and any other woolly-warmers to go towards St Vincent de Paul’s Winter Appeal.

To go in the draw to win the Double Pass for Saturday 12st July all you need to do is send in or drop a beanie to Tangled Yarns to be donated to the QTC Beanie Bin!

We would love you to include some details on your beanie, how you made it and what inspired you to make it. Entries will be photographed and appear on the Queensland Theatre Company Facebook page before being donated to the Winter Appeal.

Good luck and get knitting!

Inspiring your passion!
