Knit Pro

We have received our weekly top up of Knit Pro needles and accessories.

It is always exciting to add new products and this week we have expanded our Knit Pro needle range to include the shorter 40cm interchangeable tips in nickel!!

The Knit Pro 40cm needle tips are designed to be used with the 40cm cable to enable you to knit smaller circular items like beanies, hats and garment sleeves.

Also new this week is a small selection of Knit Pro Fabric needle rolls.

We have two different styles available –

Interchangeable Needle Case


When closed: 20cm wide x 12cm high
When Open: 34cm wide x 12cm high

This needle roll is ideal for your Interchangeable Needle Sets with pockets for your cables, needle tips and accessories.

Assorted Needle Case


When Closed: 26.5cm wide x 15.5cm high
When Open: 47.5xm wide x 26.5cm high

The Assorted Needle Case is a little more versatile with additional room for the smaller double point needles, crochet hooks and additional tips and cables.

Biggan Design

We are lucky enough to have the wonderful Biggan Design on our door step here in Brisbane.

Biggan popped in earlier this week and delivered our weekly order of both the DK / 8ply and Fingering weight / 4ply yarns.

Our Missoni Inspired Chevron Blanket in the spectacular colours of Biggan would have to be one of our most popular patterns.

We often help customers select some alternate colours for our Missoni Inspired Chevron Blanket Kits.


Another pattern we often create kits for is the Doctor Who Scarf by Chris Brimelow (knit).

For those Doctor Who fans – colours in the ‘Doctor Who’ family include:

185 – Light Russet
175 – Russet
270 – Red Earth
485 – Taupe

Some lovely crochet ideas – Monster Chunks by Rebecca Danger, Dory by Lisa Guterrez and of course African Flower Hexagon by Lounette Fourie & Anita Rossouw.

I adore my cushion cover from last year…and I really should finish off my blanket!

Debbie Bliss

We have some new books from Debbie Bliss!


Knits to Give

Nothing warms the heart more than a handmade gift.

The thoughtful consideration and time poured into a hand knit is guaranteed to make the recipient feel cherished.

Knits to Give is a collection of 30 gift ideas, divided into five sections – for her, for him, for baby, for kids & for home.

This book contains the solution to numerous tricky gift-giving problems.

Each project is designed to give maximum joy with the minimum of fuss; some are quick, entry-level projects that suit the beginner knitter, yet still result in an individual and enticing personal gift.

Whether is is a heart motif cushion given to celebrate moving into a new home or to demonstrate one’s love on Valentines Day, all the projects in Knits to Give are a joy to make, give and receive.


I have previously stocked The Knitters Year by Debbie Bliss and found it a wonderful gift for knitters or to add to your collection for year round knitting inspiration.

What could be better than a compendium of 52 hand knit designs that will take every knitter all the way through an entire year?

Each of the projects in The Knitters Year has been designed to be made in a week or less, with some being as quick to knit up as a rainy afternoon or a couple of evenings.

Designs include homewares, accessories and things to wear. They range from a sumptuous yet simple chunky scarf, to the adorable Easter-bunny egg cosies.

Divided into the four seasons, the book features spring-time ideas such as a floral corsage and some fingerless gloves, plus homeware items including a shelf edging and lacy bolster cushion.

Following are summery projects like a beach bag, simple tank and string shopping bag. Moving into Autumn, Debbie gives ideas for a back-to-school iPod cover and simple beret and scarf.

Finally Winter, where knits really come into their own with snug socks, slippers, and even ideas for Christmas gifts and tree decorations.


The Baby Knits for Beginners is ideal for anyone that has recently started knitting the special little people in their life.

A techniques book that takes you through all the basics from knit and purl to placing pockets.

15 easy to follow, trouble free designs, as well as all the basic guidance you need to get you through each pattern.

Great for brand new knitters.


Tips for Knitters

Written for new knitters looking for quick tips and experienced knitters desiring to improve their skills, this reference full of tested techniques outlines knitting essentials and gives crafters the know-how for creating their own patterns.


Starting with the basics – from choosing yarns to casting on and off–this one-stop guide then moves to more complex procedures, such as incorporating buttons and beads. Useful advice can also be found in the section on correcting common errors, which is ideal for troubleshooting while working on a project.

With beautiful photographs and simple illustrations, this is the perfect all-in-one resource to keep in a knitting bag.

Along with the Debbie Bliss books we have topped up our most popular Debbie Bliss yarns – Cashmerino Aran, Baby Cashmerino and Angel.

We have received a flurry of class bookings and many of the classes have almost filled already.

To cater to the large number of eager students we have added yet more classes to our schedule!

This means we have a total of four regular Technical Support sessions a week to assist you with your knitting needs.

Our Continental Knitting classes are aimed at students who already know how to knit the English method (with the yarn held in the right hand) and would like to learn how to knit the Continental method (with the yarn held in the left hand).

Most knitters find that with practice this speeds up their knitting time greatly, especially for long stretches of stockinette stitch or for moss / ribbing.

During the two classes you will learn one method of the knit stitch and two different methods of the purl stitch plus how to combine the two.

$50.00 per person (2 week course) plus supplies

intermediate course.

Prior knowledge of how to knit and purl, increase and decrease comfortably

On the Needles at Tangled Yarns

One of our wonderful Technical Support students has been working on this stunning Garden Party Tea Cosy by Loani Prior.

The yarn is a mixture of our Jo Sharp Silkroad Tweed and Biggan Design DK Merino.


Another of our lovely customers emailed through this great photo of her finished Mans Slouchy Hats. (From the Noro Knitting Magazine)

She started by making one for her son but as soon as his friends so it they all put in their orders!

Don’t they all look great.


Anita has a few new accessories for her winter wardobe.

This is Mustard by Jane Richmond in our Cascade Baby Alpaca Chunky.


Next up is a simple moss stitch cowl in the oh so pretty Malabrigo Rasta.


Kim has whipped up another hat for one of her daughters – Check Slouch by Triona Murphy (Knitscene Accessories) in our Berroco Ultra Alpaca.


Another quick knit for Kim was a
Pembroke Wrap by Andrea Rangel.

This one is a skein of Woolganics from Kims stash but it would look equally amazing in our Cascade 128 Superwash Chunky!


After a delay while waiting for it to dry after washing and blocking I finally managed to weave in ends and sew buttons on Sunnyside by Tanis Lavallee for my cousins new baby.

They have arrived in Australia and are putting the hand knits to good use.


TheDebbie Bliss Baby Cashmerino in soft grey and metal buttons are ideal for a little man.

My Rikke Hat by Sarah Young in our Malabrigo Arroyo was finished earlier in the week and has been my go to hat for the cool mornings. I love the squishy garter stitch and I just can’t get enough of this colour.


I have been lusting after the natural in our Cascade Baby Alpaca Chunky and decided this week that two skeins needed to become a Drop stitch Cowl by Abi Connors.

I have used slightly smaller needles and cast on more stitches to make it long enough to wrap around twice.


Inspiring your passion!
