Sometimes it is all about the small things – as much as we love receiving massive shipments of yarn, we also take great pleasure in the smaller, handpicked items that make our knitting & crochet more enjoyable or add that perfect finishing touch.

This week we have lots of those small delights to share with you – from our favourite needles and maybe just the right button, through to our favourite stitch markers and some special new ones!


Another top-up from Addi has just arrived, filling some gaps we had in our Addi Turbo fixed range and adding more of the fast-selling Addi Sock Rocket Lace needles.



Our weekly delivery from Biggan Design arrived on Sunday in a glorious burst of colour!



 It looks as though you all can’t get enough of our GEMS stitch markers! So many sizes and colours were out of stock, including everyone’s favourite, the mixed colour tins.


Thankfully new stock has just arrived!



A much-needed delivery of buttons has hit the shelves, plus I couldn’t help adding some gorgeous new styles.


Here is a small taste of the new stock…









Stitch Markers

Through the store we have been lucky to meet an amazing range of creative makers, artists and talented people.

One of these is Lu from Wild About Yarn.

In addition to being a keen crocheter, Lu has a background in lampwork / glass blowing. On one of her visits to the store she was telling me about some very special stitch markers she had been making after several of her friends had been touched by breast cancer.

Feeling the need to do something to show she cared, she created these extra special Guardian Angel Stitch Markers with handmade lampwork beads.

These markers are not only great for knitting but also for attaching to your bag or keyring, and make a wonderful gift for that someone special who needs a little looking after.


In addition to the Guardian Angel markers we also have a selection of fun marker sets including Owls, Skulls, Foxes, Ladybirds and Butterflies.



Each set of stitch markers is unique and contains a selection of markers featuring some fun knitting words and pretty beads in addition to Lu’s handblown glass beads.

While the markers will technically fit up to a 10mm needle, we feel they are more comfortable up to an 8mm size.

Yarn Packs

So often we welcome new yarns to the store, but today we are saying goodbye to a summer favourite – Berroco Linsey.


Unfortunately the supplier has decided to discontinue Linsey, so the stock we have is the last we will be able to get.

Last year, Rachel usedLinsey to whip up one of my favourite projects, a Solid Granny Square Bottom Bag.


We all loved it so much that we have put together a selection of Yarn Packs of our favourite colour combinations.

On the Needles at Tangled Yarns

With our Spring KAL kicking off this week, there has been more starting than finishing this week!

Keep an eye out for more new FOs next time.

Loom Weaving Workshop

We are thrilled to announce our collaboration with the very talented Ellie Beck for our first loom weaving workshop.

Loom weaving is experiencing a well-deserved spot in the current crafts limelight.


Come along and learn this wonderfully addictive craft, and make your own wall hanging artwork. Using botanically dyed yarns, handspun wools, metallic threads, vintage fabrics and other found materials, you’ll be guided to create a piece that celebrates your creative self.

In this workshop we will look at traditional stitches and techniques used in a modern way. Ellie will help you tap into your own creative voice and share her stories of conversing with materials to create your own unique work of art, rather than copying the trends.

You’ll go home with:

  • your own Australian-made wooden weaving loom

  • wooden weaving needles

  • a pair of sweet embroidery scissors

  • yarn to finish your weaving piece

  • instruction booklet

Ellie will have an assortment of yarns and materials to use, including her own plant-dyed yarns, homespun wool, silken and metallic threads, and special vintage fabrics as well as op-shopped yarns. These textures and colours will light creative fires for you and inspire amazing pieces of woven work and interesting conversations.


WHEN: 12:30-4pm, Saturday 20th September

As the class is limited to eight participants, bookings are absolutely essential.
Unfortunately there will be no refunds for this workshop.
