It is hard to believe that it is already the middle of July! I have no idea where the month, not to mention the year has gone….

There has been another flurry of colour & fibre through the shop this week, lots of lovely deliveries arriving and projects being cast on left, right and centre.

We get such joy from sharing our ideas with you each & every week, through the newsletter and in store.

Our classes have been at maximum capacity & many of our courses are already booked out until the end of August!


Today we are releasing our new class calendar that will take us right up until the end of October. We will continue to try to squeeze in as many classes as we can, especially for those classes you have requested of us.

With the cold and dreary days we have had of late, our lounges have been full of knitters & crocheters that have wanted a change of scenery. What better way to brighten up your day than to spend a little part of it surrounded by the colour in store.

The delicious treats we have to accompany a hot tea or coffee certainly help too….



Today I am thrilled to be adding yet another new line to Tangled Yarns…

Fibre Company

Three weeks ago we launched the stunning new line from The Fibre CompanyMeadow.

Amazingly we sold 90% of the first shipment within the first 4 days, with many colours selling out in the first 24 hours.

Luckily I had another order already in progress and I am happy to report it has arrived!!

In addition to the new stock of Meadow, I have also topped up the stock of Acadia, Canopy &Organik. (including two new colours in Organik)

Sadly we are still waiting on new stock of the Road To China Light as The Fibre Company / Kelbourne Woolens are currently out of the base. As soon as the little baby alpacas have produced more of that ultra soft fleece our back order will be processed and our shelves filled.

Several extra large boxes from Cascade have arrived again this week!

Even our delivery company is amazed at the volume of boxes that they deliver each week, often asking ‘what do you do with it all!’. My only answer is that I have to feed the demand.

This week we have topped our 220 Superwash Worsted, Heritage Silk and Baby Alpaca Chunky lines.

As mentioned earlier, today I am launching our latest class calendar.

It is hard to believe that we are scheduling classes for September & October but with so many our current Learn To and Skills Development classes already booked out we thought it best release the next batch so you can book in nice and early.


In addition to our rotating Learn to Knit & Learn to Crochet courses and our regular Tech Support Sessions (5 times a week!), we have added in a few requested Skills Development Workshops.

Our first Skills Development Workshop – Japanese Flower Crochet (31st August) filled within days and we know many of your were disappointed that you missed out.

So of course we have added another!

Skills Development Workshop
Japanese Flower Crochet

Sunday 13th October
11:30am – 2:30pm
$45 per person (3 hour workshop)

So many of you were smitten with Derrin’s amazing Japanese Flower Shawl featured in our What’s on the Needles back at the end of May.



Our Japanese Flower Crochet Workshop is designed for the intermediate crocheter with the basic skills mastered, ideal even for students who have recently completed our Learn to Crochet Course.

We recommended our Noro Taiyo Sock, 2 balls will yield you a lovely scarf / wrap.

Another Skills Development Workshop that it seems you can’t get enough of is our Introduction to Entrelac. This is a workshop that is repeatedly requested so is back on the calendar.

Derrin’s amazing Entrelac Blanket continues to create a stir when in store.



Skills Development Workshop
Introduction to Entrelac

Sunday 15th September
11:30am – 2:30pm

$45 per person (3 hour workshop)

During this three hour workshop you will learn how to knit Entrelac and find out all the tips, hints and tricks to this fantastic technique. This workshop is designed for an intermediate knitter and requires you to have the basic knitting skills of casting on, knitting & purling.

You will create a small sample piece that you can turn into a cushion cover, a small pouch (perhaps for an iPad) or continue knitting to make a wonderful scarf.


Our wonderful selection of noro yarns were made for Entrelac!

You will need to select your needle size according to the weight of Noro you choose.

Also back by demand, another round of our Learn to Knit Socks (Cuff Down) course.

Learn To Knit Socks

Whats on the Needles at Tangled Yarns

Rachel’s needles are certainly flying at the moment!

She popped in this week to share two lovely finished projects.

The pattern is Edgewood by Leah McGlone and Rachel has used our Fibre Company Organik.

As she was after a slightly smaller finished scarf / shawlette, Rachel has used only three spectacular Organik colours per shawlette.

These little shawlettes are so squishy and just right for layering at this time of year, I might just have to make a few for my wardrobe.



Simone has been busy knitting for her lovely brother. This is a Many Scarf by Jennie in our Berroco Ultra Alpaca.

For a little extra width Simone has cast on 41 stitches.


This week Derrin has used some of our ultra squishy Cascade Eco Alpaca and whipped up the beautiful Willow by Lisa Gutierrez. I simply adore this and can see it gracing the centre of a table.


Also off Derrins needles this week is a Torrent by Lisa Mutch in our Fibre Company Canopy.

The Canopy is insanely soft and squishy, especially in garter stitch.




Getting up close and personal with BrisStyle’s leading handmade artisans just became super gorgeous. Nestled on the ground floor of the beautiful historic Brisbane City Hall, the new-look BrisStyle Indie Markets are set to create a unique handmade shopping experience.
