The weather is certainly warming up and there is a real summer buzz in the air, with lots of customers escaping the heat for a spot of knitting or crochet in our air conditioning.

Our cotton and linen yarns have been flying off the shelf faster than we can keep up; thankfully, new shipments have arrived to fill some gaps.

We have also noticed a lot of gift project planning has been happening in store, so we thought we’d provide a little inspiration over the next few weeks. This week we’ve concentrated on quick and easy scarves that are perfect as stocking stuffers.

Brown Sheep

OurBrown Sheep Cotton Fleece is a shop staple all year, but it comes into its own at this time of year. With the delicious range of colours and the 80% cotton / 20% wool blend, it really is perfect for our balmy Australian climate.

An overflowing box arrived earlier this week, containing not only the DK weight Cotton Fleece, but also this seasons first delivery of the lighter weight Cotton Fine, and our shelves are once again full of colour.

On the Needles at Tangled Yarns

Anita has been working on a number of test knits in recent weeks – she says having an external deadline helps her to finish at least a few of her WIPs! This week she finished Alicia Plummer’s Mullspice hat, which features a gorgeous fat cable set against a nubby texture.


Anita’s looking forward to next autumn when it’s finally cool enough to wear it!


With summer coming on, my friend’s new baby needs a little sun protection. A rainbow of Cascade Ultra Pima Fine from my leftovers stash became this sweet crocheted sun hat, sure to keep the sun off and the smiles on.
