In the Tangled Yarn-iverse, nothing signifies spring quite so much as our first delivery of colourful soft cotton. It quite literally makes our fingers itch to cast on lacey tops, lightweight cardis and beautiful scarves and shawls to add just a splash of colour.

Need a project that’s a bit of a pick-me-up? You’ll have a tough time resisting Moss the puppy. He’s an adorable amigurumi dog who is destined for cuddling. There’s a colourwork birdie cushion that will put a smile on your face too, and a child’s tunic with a stitch pattern that’s really satisfying to work.

tangledYARNS
There are some truly great reads this issue as well, so we suggest grabbing a cuppa and finding a comfy seat. Lucy from Attic 24 spills the beans on her crochet bag designs, we chat to top hooksters about their tips for teaching little ones to crochet, and share favourite crochet finds from Unwind Brighton. Plus, be sure to check out the beautiful diamond vest top in cool coral, the review of purse-friendly yarns and much, much more.

The Simple Things

Psst! Have a look at the cover of the latest issue of The Simple Things!

tangledYARNS

Let September surprise you. Blousey blooms are back, pouffes return to the lounge, and garlic gets gorgeous. Even the adventures are small and midweek. Culinary wonders come courtesy of plump blackberries and ripe tomatoes. There are new notepads, new trousers, and new ways to pack your lunch.

Selvedge

tangledYARNS

From traditional warm woollies to avant-garde techniques, Selvedge’s September/October issue explores the many ways to create knitted and knotted textiles.

tangledYARNS

Marvel at the colourful crochet playgrounds of Japanese artist Toshiko Horiuchi MacAdam, admire the ageless appeal of Catherine Andre’s knit collections and, as the V&A announce their forthcoming Alexander McQueen retrospective, Savage Beauty, Selvedge looks at tartan as symbol, stereotype and fashion staple.

With a focus on knit, it felt natural to head to Scotland but Selvedge bypasses the mainland to meet textile designers who inhabit some of the hundreds of beautiful offshore islands.

On the Needles at Tangled Yarns

Rachel has developed a soft spot for hats; this week she has finished this adorable Camp Hoodie Swatch Hat in Berocco Ultra Alpaca, topped with a fabulous multihued mega-pompom!

tangledYARNS

Another of our regulars, Claudia brought in two finished crochet projects to show us this week. She has framed the pretty colours of Kibou in creamy white Canopy Fingering to create a Coco Cowl that’s perfect for early spring.

The hint of sparkle in our Julien silk gives Claudia’s eponymous scarf a touch of summery glamour.

Julia combined our Canopy Fingering with yarn from her stash in this lovely shawl, the result of theCurious Collective 2014 design- and knit-a-long.

To keep her son’s violin teacher’s hands toasty when she’s playing, Anita has whipped up a pair of Et Frais fingerless mitts. The textured stitch pattern not only provides a warmer fabric, but is also great for highlighting the slight colour variation of Sweet Georgia Tough Love Sock.

Anita fell for Suvi Simola’s Fold & Turn when it was first released and, despite our lack of a real winter, immediately cast on in a gorgeous neutral shade of Cascade 220 Superwash. It’s perfect for throwing on over a slouchy tee and boyfriend jeans for just a little extra warmth in the shop’s air conditioning.

With the prospect of a beachside Christmas this year, Anita has started her planning early. Her starfish, worked in Pierrot Cotton Neat, are the beginning of a beach-themed Christmas garland in turquoise, lime & ivory.

Hang on, what’s that Grandma Tree doing in there??


Earlier in the year I cast on
McIntosh and, in typical fashion, churned through the raglan increases, separated for the sleeves, worked about an inch of the body … and was then promptly distracted by other projects.

Last week, however, I decided it was just the right weight for this time of year when the middle of the days are glorious but the early mornings and late afternoons are still a tad chilly.

I was thrilled to have it off the needles and on the blocking boards yesterday.

I have used our Fibre Company Canopy Fingering in Orchid and Parakeet, and opted to add a more relaxed rolled stocking stitch band instead of the ribbed band and matching cuffs stipulated in the pattern.
