|Our Tangled week has been a busy one, full of classes, social groups, happy shoppers and even a Baby Shower! (more on that shortly…)
With the season continuing to warm up we are finding most of our knitters and crocheters are gravitating towards our Cotton Fleece, Ultra Pima / Pima Fine & Heritage Silk but plenty of gift knitting is also on the needles.

|Last Sunday we had the pleasure of hosting our very first Tangled Yarns Baby Shower!
The wonderful mum-to-be Jess wanted to make a blanket for her babe with squares knitted by her family and friends.
Everyone was given a little gift of a pair of needles and some instructions for knitting the square.
Those that could knit had the needles clicking away in no time and Derrin was on hand to assist those that needed some extra help.
There was even the most amazing ‘knitted’ cake!
If you are looking for something different for your baby shower (or bridal shower!)
With the months flying by many of our courses have finished for the year.
It has been a delight to pass on our skills and help so many of you through your projects during the year.
We only have a couple of places left this years final ‘Learn To’ courses –Learn to Knit & Learn to Crochet, both starting in December.
OurTechnical Support classes will continue through to the end of the year.
We are busy working on our class calendar for the new year and will release our January & February schedule in early December.
If there is any classes you would like to see next year we would love to hear from you!
Bookings and deposits are essential for all of our classes.

|Whats On the Needles at Tangled Yarns
|It appears we all can’t resist our Ultra Pima this week….
Another spectacular knit off the needles for Anita!
This is Drifwood by Isabell Kraemer.
Anita has used our Cascade Ultra Pima in #3759 Taupe and #3767 Deep Coral.
You may have noticed the super sweet bunting in our photos of the Baby Shower.
These were a gift from Alice to the mum to be – Jess. Alice has used our Cascade Ultra Pima.
Derrin is on a run with her cardigans this year!
Two quick projects off the needles for me, again also in our Cascade Ultra Pima.
First up is a crocheted cardi inspired by the sweet bolero’s that Kim and Derrin have been making.
Hard to believe but I have made yet another Liesl by Ysolda Teague!
I think I have maybe two more colours to go for this season and I will be done!
