Last week we shared a few of our ideas for storing your projects & stash at home and we received lots of great comments & feedback, thank you!!

Loads of lovely emails flowed in during the week and a couple of people even shared some photos.

Recently we received an email from one of our male knitters, who suggested that we try to add more unisex / male patterns to our links and/or have a male-themed week.

We thought this was a great idea and, with Valentine’s Day next month, what great timing!

Even if you don’t celebrate Valentine’s, there are some great patterns for the special men in your life…

KAL / CAL Winner

We are sad to say that our Summer Knit-a- Long / Crochet-a-Long has come to an end…

Thank you to everyone who joined us, knitting & crocheting away during the summer break.

There were some fabulous finished projects, so we let the online random number generator pick the lucky winner….

Congratulations Maureen!!

Maureen is certainly one of our most prolific customers and she doubled her chances by finishing two beautiful Carnival cardigans.

I am sure Maureen will enjoy reading her stack of magazines, they are sure to be a source of some new projects.

Classes


Our classes for the new year are back in full swing, with our Technical Support Sessions being as popular as always and our first Learn To Crochet of the year already fully booked out!

We know many of you are keen for more so this week we are releasing another two month block of classes, March & April.

In addition to our regular Learn To courses and Technical Support we have four new workshops on offer.

Double Knitting

Double knitting creates a reversible, two-layer fabric by working both sides at once. It is particularly useful for creating a thick fabric suitable for warm winter hats, scarves and potholders, with the additional benefit of colourwork on both sides.

During this three-hour workshop, you will learn the basic techniques of double knitting on a small project.

For the workshop, you will need two colours of Cascade 220 or a suitable worsted weight wool substitute, plus 4.5mm circular needles (at least 80cm cables).

Introduction to Tunisian Crochet

Tunisian Crochet is a technique that combines elements from both knitting and crochet to create a fusion of the two elements.

During this three-hour workshop, you will learn the basic techniques of Tunisian Crochet.

For the workshop, you will need some crochet experience.

Knit Fix

Small mistakes in your knitting can often be fixed without ripping whole rows of work. This three-hour workshop will provide you with the techniques and confidence to read your knitting and take on those little boo-boos.

Due to the need for attendees to prepare a few small swatches in advance of the workshop, bookings must be made before Wednesday 12th March. Class handouts will be forwarded to students on that day so that your swatches can be completed in time for the workshop.

Top-Down Raglan Workshop

Knitting sweaters top down has become more and more popular. It is a fantastic way to ensure a great fit as you can try the garment on as you go.

During two three-hour workshops you will learn the tips and trick of top-down raglan knitting.

This is an advanced beginner workshop, so good knitting skills are required (e.g. you should be comfortable increasing, decreasing and knitting in the round).

You can find our full class calendar on our website or click here.

Bookings and deposits are essential for all of our classes.

Please phone the store on 07 3666 0276 or email us tangled@tangledyarns.com.au if you have any further questions on our classes or to book in!

On the Needles at Tangled Yarns

Derrin has found her love for the needles again after a bit of a break from knitting over the holiday season.

It seems a little shawl love was all that was needed to get the mojo flowing again….She has finished two beautiful projects this week.

Asunder by Lisa Mutch in our Cascade Heritage Silk and Ella Rae Lace Merino.

With not a great deal of time to spare, I managed to finish a tiny Carousel by Georgie Hallam for my Miss A.

I have used our Cascade Ultra Pima Fine and two perfect little flower buttons to finish.
