Our first newsletter for September and it is officially Spring!

This yarn is an all season favourite so to keep up with the demand we will be placing yet another order early next week. If you are planning any larger projects over spring like these awesome blankets you can pre-order larger quantities of colours to ensure the same dyelot.

We will also be stocking up on the finer version – Cotton Fine.

This was such a popular yarn last Summer with many, many Rayures by Amy MIller scarves popping up after Kim, Derrin & Lauren all put their own take on it with out Cotton Fine!


Spring and Summer is a great time to challenge yourself with a new skill or technique.

This gives you time to perfect your skills before the onslaught of winter knitting.

Whats On the Needles at Tangled Yarns

This week my Mum finished a lovely cabled scarf in our Jo Sharp Alpaca Silk Georgette.

Perfect timing as she is heading away on a quick trip and she may need it!

I helped her choose a couple of new projects to take away with her, I can’t wait to see her progress when she gets back.

Kim and I started a little Crochet – A – Long together…

We have both been eyeing off the Granny Circle Placemats by Purl Soho and with the new delivery of Cascade Ultra Pima colours it was impossible to resist!

Kim is onto her third placemat –


I can’t decide on which colour to add to my first –


They are going to add a great splash of colour to our tables at home with each family member having their own colour.
(this may also help with my two little ones who often both head for the same seat!)

Another new cast on for me this week, Soay by Gudrun Johnston in our Cascade 220 Superwash Sport.


This is such a sweet pattern, I have loved it since our lovely Lauren made hers at the end of last year.

My summer wardrobe of colourful dresses needed a little yellow cardi…..

Inspiring your passion!
