Stitch Pixie Bags

As always the last delivery of our wonderful Stitch Pixie Project Bags sold out within days of hitting the shop.

Our amazing Peta has been sewing up a storm and we have just received a new shipment of both the regular size and the larger size bags.


Get in quick as they will sell like hot cakes!!


With so many knitters keen to try our new summer yarns we have had to top up our Addi needles this again this week.

All of our Addi Interchangeable sets are back in stock – Bamboo, Lace, Long Lace, Original & our Starter Sets!

Plus we have replenished our fixed circular needle range – 30cm through to 100cm in length.

Blocking Kits

Wow! Our new Blocking Kits have been super popular!

We continue to sell out faster than they can be made. We have increased our order and the new stock has arrived today.

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

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!

Set contains:

six 36″ wires with tip protectors
six 24″ wires with tip protectors
six 12″ wires with tip protectors
thirty nickel plated T pins

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.

Set contains:

six 67″ wires with tip protectors
thirty nickel plated T pins

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.

Set contains:

six 67″ wires with tip protectors
six 36″ wires with tip protectors
six 24″ wires with tip protectors
six 12″ wires with tip protectors
sixty nickel plated T pins

With these wires you’ll be blocking your hand knitted (and crocheted!) items more easily and faster than with traditional methods.

The Fall 2012 issue is bursting at the seams with juicy tidbits about spinning wheels, from how to pack your wheel for shipping to a survival pack for when you’re spinning away from home.

There are ideas for guild demonstration projects and for spinning fibre from sheep normally considered for their milk, not their fibre. There are stories about wheel makers as well as many things you can make with your hand-spun yarn–including the collection of shawls and scarves.

Whats On the Needles at Tangled Yarns

After a huge session with the icord bind off all the way around her Mitred Crosses Blanket by Kay Gardiner it is finished!!

This is simply stunning and an excellent way of using Noro without it becoming too overwhelming.

Kim has used our Noro Silk Garden in colours 047, 349 and 337 plus our Cascade 220 Worsted in colour 2442 – Foghatt.


Alice seems to be on a roll with her crocheted cushions.

These two are freshly finished and now take pride of place on her couch.

The yarn is our Biggan Design DK Merino is colours 090 – Natural, 710 – Deep Turquoise and 795- Navy.


I even managed to slip my cushion cover into the sewing production line Alice has had going this week.

I crocheted the front using our Brown Sheep Cotton Fleece in colours 100 – Cotton Ball, 135 – Slate Charcoal, 767 – Hawiian Sky, 455 – Willow Leaf & 850 – Berry.


Al finished it off perfectly with a linen backing and a few of our buttons.

With the warmer weather I find my wardrobe changes but it seemed to be lacking a little splash of colour.

Armed with a couple of skeins of our luscious Cascade Ultra Pima Fine in colour 3750 – Tangerine I cast on the ultimate summer scarf…Montego Bay Scarf by Amy R Singer.
