Ooh, hasn’t it been cold this week? The chillier weather has put us in mind of cosy cowls and cardis, mitts and beanies.

So it couldn’t be a better time to announce the winner of our Facebook competition!

A while back, the lovely Kelly Brooker give us permission to give a lucky Tangled Yarns ‘liker’ a copy of the full Two Sides eBook which contains three wonderful patterns – This Side,With a Brim and Double Dip all of which feature variegated or ‘leftover’ stripes complemented with stripes and slip-stitch ribs in a contrasting neutral.

Together with the pattern, we have a skein of our Berroco Ultra Alpaca Worsted in Winter White to mix with colours from your ‘leftovers’ stash.

Our lucky winner is…..


Sharon Bousfield!!

Congratulations Sharon, we will be in touch shortly to arrange the pattern and yarn to be sent your way!

Mystery Knit-A-Long

It’s fantastic that so many of you have decided to join us in Kelbourne Woolens’ Mystery Knit-a-long. Lots of our locals have popped in to select their yarn and we have been busy wrapping, packing & shipping off lovely little parcels of Meadow yarn so customers could cast on with us.

The first clue arrived in our inboxes early last Sunday morning, and Mother’s Day found many of us dutifully swatching … or naughtily casting on the first clue. (we’re not naming any names…)

This week we’ll be receiving the directions for Clue B, as well as information about the most common shawl shapes and how they’re created.

Remember that as the clues are released on Saturday US time, they arrive here a little later!

It may have taken me almost all week, but I have finally cast on and completed Clue A. So far I am loving the process and the Meadow is simply divine.

Interweave Knits

tangledYARNS

Slipping from the woolly edge of spring, into the crunchy textures of linen and cotton, the Summer 2014 issue of Interweave Knits brings you geometric lace, loose and cool silhouettes, and contemporary style.


tangledYARNS

These summer knitting patterns entice the eye, inspire the needles, and work throughout the year as wardrobe items.

Interweave Knits Summer 2014 also takes a look at a brand new way to knit socks, how dyes take to different fibres, and trends and news from around the yarn world.

Designs by Tangled

This week I have another pattern ready to release: Cross My Heart.
tangledYARNS

I wanted to take the humble granny square and give it a quirky little twist.

Careful colour placement creates colourful crosses while a ‘no seam’, join-as-you-go method means you don’t have a huge amount of finishing at the end.

tangledYARNS

As with most of our patterns, we have tried to provide you with some niftytechniques that you can apply to many of your projects.

Cross My Heart is now available on Ravelry and we have a lovely selection of colours of Cascade 220 Superwash Worsted in stock!

Stitch Pixie

Our monthly delivery from the spectacular seamstress, Peta, has arrived.

Stitch Pixie Bags!!

tangledYARNS

We have new stock of all three styles of Stitch Pixie Bags, in gorgeous fabrics as always … but I am sure they won’t last long!

On the Needles at Tangled Yarns

Best Daughter Award goes to our lovely Bryn, who knitted this stunning Sand and Sea Shawlette for Simone for Mother’s Day. It uses two shades of our Ella Rae Lace Merino – a warm neutral and a variegated – to great effect.

tangledYARNS

Claudia is one of our regular and most prolific Technical Support students and this week she brought no less than four finished projects to show us!

Using teeny-tiny needles and our Pierrot Tours linen yarn, Claudia knitted the stunning Java Summer Scarf in a shade of pink that perfectly complements one of her dresses.

tangledYARNS

After crocheting multiple Mapleton scarves for the various teachers at her boys’ school at the end of last year, Claudia finally made herself one!

From two skeins of Venezia Sport, Claudia knitted this gorgeous oversized Age of Brass & Steam, perfect for wrapping herself in.

Maureen dropped in earlier this week with her finished Dipped Infinity cowl, in one of the Tangled Yarns gradient kits that were especially hand-dyed for this pattern. Hasn’t it come up beautifully?

My dad requested another hat to keep him for winter, this one is destined to become his go to hat for golf.

I have used a ball of our Cascade 220 Superwash Worsted in 0816-Gray and a simple ribbed pattern, Bankhead by Susie Gourlay.
