With the little people back at school, we’ve been picking up temporarily set-aside projects and thinking about what else needs to “fall” onto our needles and hooks.

Luckily we’re not alone. Lots of our customers have been in this week, picking up supplies and planning new projects.

And with a new round of ‘Learn To’ courses starting next week, there are a whole new crop of knitters and crocheters about to catch the bug!


Another welcome delivery from Cascade has plumped our shelves with lovely yarns in all shades of the rainbow (and a few more besides).

Socks are always a popular project when the mercury drops, and we’ve received a much-needed injection of sock yarn to keep your toes cosy.


Several of our other Cascade yarns have also been replenished.

Listen, can you hear the sound of summer?

It’s the hum of the big old bumblebee, busy about your roses, and the hoot of the barn owl. It’s the sound of friends munching buttery sweetcorn and slurping homemade lemonade (if you can hear it above the ripples of laughter).

And, if you stand very still, you’ll hear the rustle of a field of wheat and the splash of a stream tumbling about your toes.

You’ll hear your own sigh of contentment.

You’ll hear the sound of The Simple Things.

After being almost totally wiped out of Noro over recent weeks, we breathed a sigh of relief when we received a huge delivery, full of the colour that Noro is so well known for.

We have new stock of 10 colours in Taiyo, our most popular colours of Kibou have been replaced and, just in time for Sunday’s Entrelac workshop, a lovely stash of Silk Garden (the Silk Garden will hit the shop after the workshop).

On the Needles at Tangled Yarns

It’s been a busy week for finishing and we’ve got quite a variety of projects to show off!

Bryn finished the cutest little Bunny Girl in a DottyDress, shown chilling out on our front table.

I won’t be showing this to my girls!

Apparently Bunny has a wardrobe of beautiful new dresses already on the needles…

Alice finished the beautiful Messaline in soft pink MillaMia to keep her daughter warm at ballet class.


She must be the sweetest little ballerina there, particularly when she teams it with adorable stripey Legwarmies in MillaMia and Debbie Bliss Cashmerino Baby, knitted by Grandma Kim.


Roslyn finished two lovely shawls this week – first up,
Hitchhiker in Zauberball. We haven’t had this colour since last year but, after seeing it worked up, I feel we’re going to have to order some more!


Ros is also the first of our Mystery Knitalong participants to show off her finished Beltane Shawl, knitted in The Fibre Company’s Meadow.

Seeing her finished shawl makes me even more eager to finish my own!


Maureen has three projects to share with us this week!

Maureen had tried using her Acadia in Granite on a different project, which hadn’t worked out. But when we got our new colour, Strawberry, inspiration hit – the two colours are a striking combination in the Quaking Aspen Shawl.



With the chilly weather, a nice warm cardi always comes in handy. Maureen finished her aYellow Brick Road Cardi in a warm golden shade of Cascade 220 Worsted.

But it’s the details that enchant – a lacy yoke, welted cuffs and oh, those buttons!



Maureen used two colours of Malabrigo Sock from her stash in these lovely girly mitts, a test knit for designer Marlaina “Marly” Bird.


We haven’t seen Carmen in a while, but she popped in last night to show us her Malou by Wollwek – simone eich in Crazy Zauberball.


As for me, I’ve finished two projects this week. I couldn’t go past our new
Kibou to crochet a lovely light Fantasm.


I also finished Looped Loop in Berroco Ultra Alpaca Light to keep my mum warm on her upcoming trip to Adelaide.


Inspiring your passion
