We are at the end of the first week of school holidays here in Brisbane, and things have certainly been heating up! With the warm weather, lots of our customers have made the most of the cool in the shop and popped in to do a spot of social knitting and crochet. It’s been lovely to hear the soft hum of conversation and laughter as they craft and chat.

It’s also been nice to see plenty of families coming in to pick up supplies for some holiday crafting – we simply love watching the next generation of budding knitters and crocheters emerge.

As spring turns to summer, the shop is constantly evolving. We have been busy rearranging the shelves yet again to squeeze in more lovely spring / summer yarns!

I was just a little thrilled to receive our shipments this week and, I will admit, several new projects have made it onto my needles and hooks…


One of the latest additions to our Tangled Yarns line-up, Schoppelwolle Zauberball, has continued to fly out the door!


This week we have received a top up of the most popular colours…

Our new Waves crochet hooks were a massive hit and we sold out in the first 48 hours!


For those who missed out, we have a new shipment in this week.

The Waves Kits feature Knit Pro’s signature smooth finish aluminium hooks and colourful soft-feel handles. The hooks come in nine vibrant colours, each of which is unique to its size.

Packaged in a handy faux leather zippered case, each set contains nine hook sizes –


Choose from bright green or bright pink to build your crochet hook library!



Looks like many of you were as excited as us about our new summer-weight yarn from Berroco – Linsey.

A shipment arrived earlier this week to replenish all of the colours that were out of stock.

Biggan Design

We have been informed that the price of Biggan Design First Cross Merino will increase on 1
st October, with the DK/8ply increasing to $11.25 a ball, and the 4ply to $11.95 a ball.

Biggan Design is proudly Australian and is determined to keep production of its yarn in Australia. Unfortunately, however, the rising cost of raw materials has necessitated this price rise.

This weekend will be the last chance to buy Biggan at current prices – perhaps it’s a good opportunity to stock up?

On The Needles at Tangled Yarns

Maureen’s flying fingers have finished yet another gorgeous scarf this week –
Ipswich Scarf by Elinor Brown in the delicious Guava colourway of our Fibre Company Canopy.




Baby Eve is being spoiled by her Tangled Yarns aunties!


This week, Derrin has knitted up a Baby Acacia by Georgia Hallam in one of our previous Pierrot Yarns cottons.


Anita fell in love with our new Irish Linen and craved a long, floaty scarf to accessorise her summer dresses.


Liz and her trusty knitting machine came to the rescue, whipping up a generous 2.75 metres of stocking stitch for Anita to swan around in…



I don’t usually share my works in progress but I am enjoying our new Pierrot Yarns so much that I though I would share a little of what has been happening on my needles & hooks this week.

In our newAmian I have a Raffia Cloche by Pierrot on the hook. I can’t wait to have this finished, it will be ideal for the upcoming hot summer.


Only at swatching stage for now but I have a couple of potential patterns in mind for our new Pont Du Gard
