I am not sure where the week has gone this week, the days have flown past in a blur of colourful deliveries, fun class sessions and a bustling shop full of customers picking up supplies and project planning!

Mystery Knit-A-Long

Last week’s clue was a little spicier with true ‘knitted lace’ ie patterning worked on both sides. The girls at Kelbourne Woolens are really keeping us on our toes!

I wonder what’s in store for us this week when Clue E arrives!

Fibre Company

A lovely top-up from The Fibre Company arrived late this week, with stock of Acadia,Road to China Light and Meadow.

We have a small number of ball winders back in store. These are a slightly different style from the Royal winders that we usually stock, but equivalent in both quality and price.


Just in time for today’s newsletter, a huge shipment of Cascade has arrived, bringing our stocks of 128 Superwash Chunky and 220 Superwash Worsted back up to capacity.

Our wonderful Derrin has designed a simple moss stitch scarf for Designs by Tangled.


A quick knit that produces a stylish result, Moss uses three skeins on large needles to produce a lofty, warm fabric.


Moss will be available via Ravelry over the weekend…keep an eye out!


After a long wait, we’re very excited to announce the arrival of theNamaste BYOB tool binder, a new system for all your knitting needles, crochet hooks and tools!


The BYOB is a sleek zippered compendium, featuring an exterior rear zipper compartment, removable exterior wristlet, and three interior mesh pockets (2 half pockets on the front interior and 1 full wall pocket on the rear interior).

To supplement it, the BYOB has three different page styles / options, each sold separately. These include an interchangeable page, a large straight page, and a mesh double pocket page.


On the Needles at Tangled Yarns

Wow! It’s been a big week, with so many of our customers and staff bringing in their finished projects to show us!

One of our fantastic Technical Support students, Ray, finished a beautiful
February Lady Sweater for his daughter in Berroco Ultra Alpaca.


Maureen also finished a cardigan this week – the lovely Lavaliere in Road to China Light.


Carol used a delicious sorbet of colours from our range of
220 Superwash Worsted to knit up this Lacy Chevron baby blanket.


Derrin has finished yet another Crocheted Moebius Cowl, this week from our new line,
Kibou. It will be a wonderful splash of colour this winter!


She also finished a pair of
Nalu Mitts in our lovely soft MillaMia Naturally Soft Merino.


Alice also whipped up a pair of mitts. Her long Wandering mitts in Malabrigo Rios from her stash will be ideal for keeping her hands and wrists warm on chilly mornings.


Liz transformed a skein of Taiyo Sock into an extra wide, short version of the Splash Cowl.


Rachel has two new hats to show off this week.


First up is the super cute Orchid & Fairy Lights in Debbie Bliss Cashmerino Aran.


Our new Kibou caught her eye when it came in last week. She combined it with our Berroco Ultra Alpaca Light for a deliciously girly take on the Button-tab Hat.


My mum asked me to make a lacy, slouchy beanie for a friend’s birthday. Frick Frick BERET! was the perfect choice, in deliciously soft Road to China Light.


Anita and I have a somewhat odd way of blocking our hats, but it works brilliantly. So we thought we’d share it with you all here.

You start conventionally, by letting your hat soak for 15-30 minutes in lukewarm water with a splash of Soak. Gently squeeze out the excess water.

Partially inflate the balloon and then put it inside the hat – because you blow up the balloon inside the hat, you avoid stretching out the brim.


And when the hat is dry – pop! – out comes the balloon and you have a perfectly blocked hat!


and after!
