November 25: Happy Thanksgiving & Small Business Saturday

First, we want to wish all of our friends and customers a very Happy Thanksgiving tomorrow!

To give our staff a chance to celebrate with their families, we will close at 3PM today and remain closed until Saturday when we will return to normal business hours. Speaking of Saturday…small business

We hope you’ll stop in and join us for Small Business Saturday 11-4. We’ll have goodies and hot cider, and we’ll be giving away three $25 gift cards throughout the day. Plus, we’ll have a host of lovely quick project ideas for those on your gift list. December is just around the corner!

Monday Make and Take Nov 30

Monday we’ll be hosting another Make & Take with Vivian! Come join us for a fun class to make an ornament and a gift tag on Monday, November 30th from 12-1:00. Class is $10 +$3 for materials and registration is open now.  Space is limited!

We wish all of you a happy Thanksgiving. We are so thankful for each and everyone one of you who has supported Tangled Purls throughout the years we’ve been here. We look forward to many more!

November 19: What’s new!

Looking for a squishy, vibrant DK for your next warm project? We have some fabulous colors of Vivacious DK from Fyberspates in stock!

magnum

It’s time again for super bulky knits, and there’s nothing more rewarding than Vivian’s cozy blanket knit with four skeins of Magnum. Free pattern with purchase of yarn (and there’s no purling in the pattern — for real!).

mug cozy

Join Marie this Monday (November  23rd) for another Monday Make & Take! The class will be from 12 – 1:00 (come on your lunch hour). You’ll not only come away with a great idea for holiday gift giving, but a new technique — learn how Duplicate Stitch can quickly enhance your projects! No fairisle, no knitting in the round, no intarsia — just a super easy project with a technique you can use over and over! There will be a couple of stitch patterns available, and if you have time for a little homework, we’ll let you know what you need to do to get a head start. Be sure to register in advance (space is limited). $10 registration fee holds your spot and there will be a $3 materials fee.  Bring size 9 needles (any length that will accommodate about 40 stitches) and a darning needle for the class. See you Monday!

November 12: Make & Takes

There are only 6 more Saturdays for “making” during this lovely season of giving. Are you (and your projects) ready? Tangled Purls is bursting at the seams with ideas and inspiration for projects that you can finish in time to give to loved ones.

November 16th, 2015: Make & Take Monday – Felted Soap!

Felted soap is a wonderful gift and is quick and fun to make! Join us from 12 -1:00 this Monday. Cost is $10 and space is limited. Please register in person in advance to guarantee a spot. Participants will each need to bring a bar of hard-milled soap (glycerine, castile, or a soap like Irish Spring works well) and one knee-high stocking or nylon that you don’t mind getting a bit soapy (we’ll have a few extras).

See you Monday!

Early November News

How is it already November 9th?! If you’re like us, you’re already underway with holiday projects. We’re padding our stashes and piling on the yarn so we can start the season off right!

Speaking of piling on the yarn, you should see the incredible new shipment of Tosh we’re putting out on the shelves tomorrow! We have sweater quantities of a huge selection of Tosh DK, Tosh Vintage and Toshmerino Light. This is the perfect time to stock up!

Tosh Tuesday

Join us this Wednesday (November 11th, 2015) for a Lunchtime Lesson with Brittney!

Have you ever wanted to learn brioche? Join Brittney for a beginner’s brioche primer. You’ll learn the basic brioche stitch which is knit flat with one color, one of the first building blocks for knitting more complex brioche projects.

This  Brioche Pop Up Class will be a fun teaser for Brittney’s upcoming Brioche Hat Class in December. Brittney will also show samples of other projects that can be made with two colors once you become experienced with the elements of the technique. The class is $5 per person and space is limited (we will not register in advance — this is a drop-in class).
Please bring a set of needles (somewhere between size 6-8) and at least 50 yards of medium weight yarn in a solid light color (anywhere between DK and Aran).
We have all kinds of wonderful things in the works for November and December, so keep checking here for updates, as well as on Facebook and on our newsletter to stay up to date with the happenings at Tangled Purls!
Don’t forget: We’re open Mondays 11 – 4 now through January.
