With the Easter Bunny getting ready for his annual visit, we’ve been looking at patterns that might entice him to hide a few extra chocolate eggs in our gardens … or maybe as an alternative to chocolate (Is there any alternative?)

Our new yarns keep on coming!

This week, we are thrilled to add MillaMia Naturally Soft Merino to our range.

With its tight twist and incredibly smooth hand, MillaMia is a highly versatile option for garments, accessories and homewares. Its 20 colours run the gamut from muted neutrals to clear brights and deep jewel tones.


Both Derrin and I have been trialling this lovely yarn – Derrin with this log cabin baby blanket in a subdued palette of blues …


… and me with a pair of my favourite crocheted booties and the prototype of a new hat design.


We are also stocking MillaMia’s gorgeous pattern books, which showcase their modern Scandinavian aesthetic in a range of designs for both children and adults.


Check out some of these:

On the Needles at Tangled Yarns

As usual, our wonderful customers have been stitching up a storm, with lots of beautiful FOs to show for it.

The striking Die Cut Vest from last spring’s Knit.Wear caught Gaye’s eye, and she matched it with The Fibre Company’s Meadow in a lovely soft green.


The gorgeous lace pattern of Julia’s Lizzie cardigan shows up so crisply in Malabrigo Arroyo. This will be lovely to wear as the weather grows cooler.


One of our Technical Support students, Aline finished this gorgeous cardigan in Noro Taiyo Sock just in time to take it to France with her next week. The drape of the collar is just divine…
