With the lovely weather this week I have started to pull my hats out.

One of my favourite hats from last winter was my Rikke Hat by Sarah Young {knit}.

I used a single skein of our Malabrigo Arroyo in Purpuras, this year my colours have changed and I am drawn to the blues and greens….Reflecting Pool from our current shipment of Malabrigo is really calling to me, I think it may become another Rikke!




We are excited to be introducing a new magazine this week…Reloved!


Reloved is a brand new craft magazine dedicated to the wonderful world of up-cycling.

If you have got some furniture sitting in the corner of the room that has seen better days, or you want to breathe new life into a favourite outfit, look no further!

In issue 1 you have some gorgeous projects waiting for you and they cover all crafts and skill loves, so you don’t need to be an expert to give them a go.

Easy makes range from the freezer paper t-shirts to the vase covers, while those with a little more experience have a lace doily lampshade and a cabled footstool cover.

There is also a brilliant masterclass on how to restore a worn chair seat pad.

I hope you enjoy this issue as much as us!

The Simple Things


Issue 9 of The Simple Things has just hit our shelves, packed with plans for your ideal weekend including the ultimate chocolate bread pudding!


From the Simple Things…

Imagine a lovely day. A day in which every wow moment takes place on your doorstep, if not in your actual home – be it a new breakfast recipe, a treasure snaffled at the local market, a sun-sprinkled woodland stroll, or just a big fat slab of cake.

It’s not about complicated manoeuvres. Spur-of-the-moment outings, intimate gatherings and bursts of inspired nest-feathering are their own reward. Moments of contemplation, cups of tea and brilliantly eccentric collections make is feel human.

Imagine a lovely day…it is a day fill with The Simple Things.

Whats on the Needles at Tangled Yarns

Another of our lovely customers popped in to share her beautiful finished project.

This is Misty Meadow by Cindy Garland {knit} in our Malabrigo Sock and Ella Rae Lace Merino.



Maureen has amazed me again with yet more finished projects.

She did say that some of these had been on the needles for some time, it is comforting to know that it is not just me that has some long term works in progress!!

First up is a stunning Hap Blanket by Ysolda Teague {knit} in our Cascade Eco Wool and a now discontinued Tweed.



This one, is another yarn we discontinued some time ago but has certainly turned out beautiful!
The pattern is Breiwick by Gudrun Johnston {knit}.


For a splash of colour Maureen has used our Noro Silk Garden Sock to make these Ruffled Wristers by Katharine Hunt {knit}.


Another wonderful regular, Rachel popped in this week to share some more of her recently finished projects.

First up is this amazing, squishy Sunny Spread blanket by Ellen Gormley {crochet}.


Rachel has used our Noro Taiyo for the ‘pops’ of colour and our Cascade 128 Superwash Chunky for the squares plus a border in our Cascade 220 Superwash Sport (held doubled, as it was just the perfect colour!).


Also off the needles this week for Rachel is this lovely Cameo shawl by Paulina Popiolek in our Madelinetosh Pashmina.


Unfortunately we are still waiting patiently for our current order from Madelinetosh to be completed but our new Road to China Light would be an ideal yarn for Cameo.


One of our fantastic Tech Support regulars, Michelle brought in a finished scarf to share at her last class. This is Undulation by Natalie Servant {knit} in a beautiful selection of colour from our Debbie Bliss Cashmerino Aran collection.


I might have a small addiction to these little flower slippers…three more pairs flew off my hook earlier this week! I even made a little boy pair, finished off perfectly with a couple of our buttons.

If you missed the details last week, the pattern is Flower Slippers by Hayley Missingham.

I have used our Debbie Bliss Baby Cashmerino in a selection of different colours. I think that is why I am so addicted…I keep finding different colour combos that I have to put together!


To compliment a pair of the the flower slippers I also made a matching baby hat using my Little Set of Stripes pattern {knit}.



Saturday night is unofficially ‘Cast On Night’ at Tangled Yarns (the night were we get sidetracked from our current projects by the new pretty yarns and patterns), and last Saturday night when Robin Ulrich released her new Greyhaven Hat {knit} it instantly jumped in my queue.

A quick visit to the shop on Sunday morning meant that I was casting on by Sunday afternoon with our new Fibre Company Organik.

Both the pattern and yarn were utterly divine and I have loved wearing my new hat every day this week.
