The weather has started to cool and the project planning for Autumn & Winter has had lots of fingers itching!

Along with the project planning I have been busy ordering lots of lovely new yarns to add to the shop over the coming weeks.

I love watching the shop change as the summer yarns slow and the warmer colours start to fill the shelves, almost like the Autumn leaves on a tree….

Simply Crochet

Last month we launched the premier issue of Simply Crochet from the makers of Mollie Makes.
The response was overwhelming with the limited copies we had disappearing within hours of our newsletter!

We had hoped that we would be able to order further copies of Issue One, unfortunately we have received the news that the publishers have completely sold out. We have a long waiting list for copies of Issue One if we were able to obtain more, I will work my way through the list letting everyone know of the update.

Copies of Issue Two are also extremely limited so if you would like a copy please get in fast, they won’t last long!!


Issue two of Simply Crochet is packed full of exciting projects (43 to be exact)!

This issue has been inspired by Easter, so you will find a few chicks, egg cosies and bunnies about the place.

Amongst many other things inside you will find
DIYs to help you bring your accessories up to date,
cute makes to fill your kitchen,
and the most adorable bunny ever to be hooked out of yarn.

Colourful cotton yarns are working hard in the kitchen too.

So many lovely retro colours to use and so many great things to make.

Even an Easter wreath decoration!


We have been busy working on our new Class Calendar for April and May, after some finishing touches we should be able to release the new classes next week!

The majority of our classes for March are already fully booked but we have a couple of spots left in two up coming classes.

Continental Knitting

Saturday mornings 10am – 12noon
th & 16th March

Our Continental Knitting classes are aimed at students who already know how to knit the English method (with the yarn held in the right hand) and would like to learn how to knit the Continental method (with the yarn held in the left hand).

Most knitters find that with practice this speeds up their knitting time greatly, especially for long stretches of stockinette stitch or for moss / ribbing.
During the two classes you will learn one method of the knit stitch and two different methods of the purl stitch plus how to combine the two.


$50.00 per person

Whats on the Needles at Tangled Yarns

Our lovely customer Aline has just finished a beautiful Hitchhiker by Martina Behm {knit}.

This is actually the second Hitchhiker in recent weeks for Aline, the first was a gift finished just in time to give to her daughter while she was here in Brisbane visiting.

Aline has used our Noro Taiyo Sock in colour #03 and our Cascade Heritage Silk in Snow #5618.



Rachel popped in earlier this week to share a finished pair of socks she had made for her brother.

The pattern is Mens Socks for Giving Away by Purl Soho {knit} and Rachel has used our Cascade 220 Superwash Sport in Silver Grey #1946 & Dark Aqua #849.


With Autumn approaching Kim has finished another stunning shawl!

This is Sundry by Jennifer Dassau {knit}. Kim has used our Malabrigo Sock in Eggplant and Tosh Merino Light in Sugar Plum.
(keep an eye out for more Madelinetosh yarns during Autumn)



Anita fell in love with the pure girliness of some of our Cascade Ultra Pima pastels, and decided to design a blanket for her daughter’s 5th birthday. She finally managed to wrestle it away long enough for us to take photos.

Anita will be releasing the pattern for Sorbet on Ravelry this weekend!

To keep the blanket simple and modern, she has designed it as one piece, with an applied i-cord edging. And although her daughter’s is a larger lap blanket size, Anita has included sizing details for a smaller baby blanket as well.

I will announce when it is up on Ravelry via our Facebook page for those of you keen to get knitting!


In between all of that knitting and pattern designing Anita has also manged to finish off a garment for herself. Iridium by Lisa Mutch {knit} in our Tosh Merino Light.



With all of the new yarns and Autumn projects popping up over the last few weeks I have had a bad case of ‘cast-on-itis’.

One of the many projects on my needles & hooks is delightful Striped Cotton Cowl by The Purl Bee {knit}.

I am using our Brown Sheep Cotton Fleece & Cotton Fine in the following colours –

Putty, Buttercream, October Leaf, Wolverine Blue, Salmon Berry & Celery Leaves.

I think this will become a staple piece in my Autumn wardrobe, ideal for that extra layer over jeans and a shirt.
