Welcome to our first newsletter of the new year!
I was overwhelmed by all the lovely emails I received after our final newsletter for 2012 and by just how many of you missed receiving our newsletter last Friday.
The small break from routine was nice but I’m super glad to be easing back into ‘Newsletter mode’ today.
I hope that your festive season was full of family, friends and maybe even a little fibre.
It is always nice to take a moment to look back at the year that was.
Although at times it felt like I wasn’t getting anywhere with my projects, I did manage to get quite a few projects off the needles.
I had approximately 57 projects finished in 2012 including, 20 cardigans / sweaters / tops, 15 hats, 5 blankets, 9 shawls / scarves / cowls plus a variety of cushions, coasters and decorations…
Did you achieve all that you hoped for last year?
Many of our suppliers are taking a well deserved break, some return next week and others not until in mid January.
Rest assured, we have lots of lovely new stock heading our way including some exciting shipments that didn’t quite make it here for December.
2013 will bring new yarns, new brands and new adventures to Tangled Yarns and we are thrilled that you will be along for the ride!
Certainly an delightful way to start the new year….opening big boxes ofMadelinetosh yarn!
This is our first shipment for 2013 and we have a lovely large shipment following on the tails of this one!!

One of our adorable customers, Kimley popped in to share some of her finished projects.
Kim’s holiday project has been another spectacular blanket. This time she has opted to go with the speed and ease of crochet for some mindless summer colour.
She has used a stunning selection of our Brown Sheep Cotton Fleece.
Kim has based her blanket on Chevron Granny Blanket by Michelle Kludas but has made the chevrons deeper and wider (28 stitches per chevron) and the stripes are based on our favourite Missoni Inspired blankets.
