There is a definite chill to the mornings now – popping our feet out from under the covers is becoming ever harder. If your toes are feeling the cold, perhaps it’s time to knit some socks?

Anita has just released a basic sock pattern designed for her toe-up classes. In four sizes, and with instructions for altering the pattern to fit any size foot, it’s a great way to try toe-up sock knitting. And we’ve got plenty of delicious sock yarn to tempt your chilly toes…

You can purchase the pattern direct from Ravelry or we have some printed copies ready to go in store along with our pick of colours from our sock yarn.

Cascade

Another of our regular shipments full of squishy goodness from Cascade has arrived in store this week.

As the weather cools we’ve started to concentrate on the heavier yarns; however, we know our lighter weight yarns remain popular, so they have also received a nice top up.

Classes


In addition to our regular beginner ‘Learn to Knit’ & ‘Learn to Crochet’ courses we like to add some specific technique workshops to the mix.

Double Knitting is a fantastic technique that creates a reversible, two-layer fabric by working both sides of the fabric 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 crcular needles (at least 80cm cables).

On the Needles at Tangled Yarns

We love when our customers pop back in to share their beautiful finished projects.

Last weekend, Gabrielle was thrilled to finish a stunning tea cosy for a friend. The pattern is Forest Bloom by Loani Prior (from her book “How Tea Cosies Changed the World”).

Gabrielle used a variety of our yarns including
Biggan Design DK Merino and Jo Sharp Silkroad DK Tweed.
(Our first Autumn shipment of Jo Sharp yarns is due to arrive later this month or early April)

Anita was taken with one of our new colours of Silk Garden, and nabbed a couple to make this boho cardi for her little girl:Juvel by Yarn-Madness. A super quick knit – only five days – for such a cute result…

Best of all, it’s received the tick of approval from Miss A, who is vowing to wear her “Coat of Many Colours” every day this winter!

Rachel has finished a trio of gorgeous hats this week.

Minno Hat is a brilliant example of slip-stitch colourwork, and Rachel has used various colours of The Fibre Company Road to China Light and Cascade 220 Superwash Sport to great effect in two very different versions.

For her son, she has knitted Botanic Hat in two vibrant colours of The Fibre Company Organik.

To top it off, she finished this gorgeous McIntosh in two shades of The Fibre Company Canopy Fingering.

I have been busy working on a special little baby blanket over the last few weeks and I am thrilled to have finished it earlier this week.

I still have ends to finish weaving in but I am so happy with how the colours ended up coming together.

This is for a little girl babe who is due in April and her mum specifically wanted something not pink or purple.

tangledYARNS

I have used a sweet selection of yellows, blues and greens from our Cotton Fleece range.

The pattern is based on the very popular African Flower motif.
