On The Needles at Tangled Yarns

The lovely Kimley popped in last weekend to share with us her fourth Ten Stitch Blanket by Frankie Brown in our colour Noro Taiyo.

(yes, that is correct…four! What dedication!!)

Kimley has used our Noro Taiyo in colour 41.



Rachel stopped by to visit yesterday with some adorable little creatures…..


These cuties are Hedgehog by Marika Uustare and Rachel has used a variety of left overs from her stash.

If you are thinking you might like some Hedgehogs of your own our Brown Sheep Cotton Fleece would be ideal!


The hooks have certainly been flying at Rachels, she also finished this sweet Mila Infinity Scarf by Eaden Yarns in our Debbie Bliss Baby Cashmerino.




And just in time to add to her spring wardrobe a Orange Scarf by Alla Koval in our Brown Sheep Cotton Fleece.



If you follow us on our Facebook page you may have noticed that Anita and I decided on a little impromptu crochet along…

We both fell in love with the stunning Queen Anne’s Shawl by Rebecca Velasquez.

Anita selected the simply beautiful Cascade Ultra Pima Fine in Natural and I was torn by colour choice but finally decided on our Cascade Ultra Pima Fine in Cool Mint.



We both found the pattern to be super quick and easy to work on with the added interest of the super pretty lace edge and we managed to whip up our shawls in a little over three days.

A few weeks ago I made a couple of little things for miss Eve.


First up is a Beyond Puerperium by Kelly Brooker in our Cascade 220 Superwash Sport.


I couldn’t resist the little rainbow of buttons down the side….

Next was a pair of Flower Slippers by Hayley Missingham in our Cascade Ultra Pima Fine.


And last was this super sweet dress…Mina Dress by Alicia Paulson, also in our Cascade Ultra Pima Fine.
