The days are long and warm, ideal for re-organising your stash and planning some projects.

If you are looking for extra inspiration for stash storage and general organisation you only need to take a peek at Pinterest…if you are not already a Pinterest fan jump on over!!

Whats on the Needles at Tangled Yarns


We held back on sharing all of our ‘Whats on the needles’ projects with you towards the end of the year as many were gifts and we simply didn’t want to spoil the surprise.

I am slowly working through the backlog of projects…


Anita whipped up some lovely teachers gifts just before the end of the year.

First up was a summer scarf in our Ultra Pima (#3756).
The pattern is Mustard Scarf by Jane Richmond.
tangledYARNS

Using the DK weight cotton, 7mm needles and casting on 20 stitches created a delightfully light and airy summer scarf.

Another Mustard Scarf by Jane Richmond, this time in a skein of our Baby Alpaca Chunky.
tangledYARNS

The heavier weight yarn required 9mm needles and 22 stitches.

Again in our delicious Baby Alpaca Chunky, a Drop Stitch Cowl by Abi Gregorio.
tangledYARNS

Anita has used 7mm needles and cast on 96 stitches (three pattern repeats) to make the most of the single skein.

Making the most of the festive season break Anita managed to churn out a ‘light as a weather’
Featherweight by Hannah Fettig.

Anita used a gorgeous skein of our Tosh Lace from her stash in colour Badlands.
(keep an eye out for our coming shipments)

Derrin’s holiday knit was Hey Hey, My My by Reiko Kuwamura.
She has used our Ultra Pima Fine (3757 – Zen Green).

A couple of small mods including moving the waist shaping to the sides.

Towards the end of December Kim made this adorable little shrug using some of our Ultra Pima.

The pattern is Riddiculously quick baby shrug by YarnMadness
This was a gift for a family friends little girl.

It has been a while since I have had a finished project but I have recovered from the craziness at the end of last year and have finally finished of a little cardi that I started back in November.

This is Marigold Bolero by Jenny King in our Ultra Pima Fine (3743 – Yellow Rose).

tangledYARNS


I have added an extra motif to each side to make it a little longer and less bolero, more cardi.

At the request of my littlest one I cast on a second Sweet Penny by Cathy Rubin.
This one is again in
our Ultra Pima (3748 – Buttercup).

I know what I will be working on this weekend….that is after I settle in tonight for some serious reading of my issue of Mollie Makes!
