It has been a busy week here at Tangled Yarns, our classes, social knitters and shoppers have been keeping us busy plus several large shipments have arrived.
We have just added over 1200 skeins to the shop and there is plenty more on the way. Our summer yarns are still proving to be extremely popular so we will continue to carry them while the demand is there, although we are having some space issues trying to fit it all in!!
I have also been busy finalising some exciting orders, the first of our Autumn yarns will be winging their way to us very soon.
It has been wonderful to see so many of our much loved regulars back in-store and at our classes for the new year plus so many new faces joining us both online and in-store!
Random patterns that I have fallen in love with this week…
Geometric Lace by BabyLove Brand (crochet)
Twigs and Willows by Alana Dakos (knit)
Our Autumn / Winter shipments will arriving soon, start planning your colours now!
One of the most revolutionary needles of our times that combine the premium quality of carbon fibre with perfectly shaped nickel plated brass tips.
We often get requests for straight needles in the finer sizes. In timber or bamboo the possibility of snapping your needles is extremely high.
Carbon Fibre is one of the most versatile materials used in modern times for use in aircrafts and is ideal for knitting needles on account of it’s high tensile strength, light weight and comes with a surface that offers excellent control over the stitches. This union of two revolutionary materials is guaranteed to provide an unparalleled knitting experience.
These gorgeous needles are available from 2.0mm – 3.5mm.
The latest issue of the super popular KnitScene has just hit the shop floor!
Many of these projects are in lighter weight yarns like Sport / 5ply and DK / 8ply making them perfect for our Autumn.
At least three new projects have made their way to my list already!
A sneak peek inside this issue…
After a small delay over the holidays we have a new shipment of our most popular summer weight yarns from Cascade!
We have topped up our existing colours plus we now have lots of lovely new 2013 colours including some simply stunning colours in the Serendipity Tweed range.
We are just finding room to add all of the new colours on our shelves and they will also make it up onto the website over the weekend.
I’m sure I’m not the only one that always has at least one little project with me when I’m out and about….?!
The detachable wristlet strap adds convenience while multiple interior compartments provide super organisation. The Devin wristlet’s tapered shape offers subtle elegance and simplicity.
Your notions never had it so good!
The Jemma pouch is ideal as a notions pouch, makeup storage unit, change purse, you-name-it. It’s the perfect size with an easy-to-grab zipper pull.
Available in 4 fun colors.

We are in for a big weekend with three different classes across the two days! On Saturday we have a Tech Support (Knit & Crochet) in the morning followed by a Crochet / Felted Hexagon class in the afternoon.
Sunday we will have our second and extremely popular Entrelac Class!
If you have missed out on these classes we have a couple of spots left in the final Crochet / Felted Hexagon and Entrelac Classes for January.
All of the dates are available on our Calendar.
Sock season is almost here and to start off on the right foot (excuse the pun) we have scheduled two different sock classes, Top Down & Toe Up.
Our Top Down course is already fully booked but we do have a couple of spaces left in the toe up course.
During our Toe Up Socks course you will learn how to knit a pair of ribbed socks,
The benefit of this method is that if you are knitting larger sized socks or have ‘just enough’ yarn you can knit the leg length your yarn allows.
No running out of yarn half way through your toe!
$75.00 per person
Please note that this is an intermediate course.
Prior knowledge of how to knit in the round comfortably is required.
100g of fingering weight / 4ply yarn
2.50mm or 2.75mm needles
wool darning needle
Bookings and deposits are essential for all of our classes.
Please phone the store on 07 3666 0276 or email us firstname.lastname@example.org you have any further questions on our classes or to book in!
|Whats on the Needles at Tangled Yarns
Our wonderful customer Maureen popped in with some beautiful finished projects to share with use this week.
This certainly adds a happy splash of colour to Maureen’s wardrobe!
This week I finished off another adorable little Sweet Penny by Cathy Rubin for my little one.
She picked the colour from our Cascade Ultra Pima collection…# 3748 Buttercup.
Second time around the pattern was still a delight to knit and the colour (#3720-Sage) goes well with several of my summer dresses.
