August Flying By

yarn tasting event

Kids are back in school, shops are putting up Christmas displays (say it isn’t so!) and people are reluctantly starting to think about Christmas projects to be done.

I have a lot of new yarn coming in almost weekly.  Fall colors and weights are arriving along with new yarns from Berroco, Cascade, Euro Yarns, and others.

Starting with September’s First Friday with the Arts, I will be hosting yarn tastings.  Yep, we will taste the yarns, but with our fingers and eyes, not with our tongues.  I think the fuzziness would be a bit too much.

So drop in Friday, September 4th, from 5:00 pm – 8:00 pm to sample knit or crochet Berroco yarns.  There will be new yarns to sample along with all in stock Berroco yarns.  Added bonuses:  wine, cheese and a 10% discount on Berroco!

See you on the 4th!


June Sale

June 19th!  Where has the time gone?  Settling in at the new location – 521 Broadway.  For those of you familiar with Cape, I am between Shivelbine’s Music Store and Bob’s Red Wing Shoes Store.

We all know what comes in six months.  EGAD!  It’s only 6 months and I have how many projects to get done?

Let’s see if this helps to get you motivated.

I’m Back

Tea and Cookies   Hot Tea and Cookies!

I am the worst at blogging.  I’m sorry.  I promise I will do a better job.  Promise!

The Tangled Yarn has been open 10 months!  What a ride!  I have enjoyed it so much and can’t wait to continue growing my business and my skill.

Latest News – I am moving to a new location April 1st!  I will be located at 521 Broadway.  It is a few doors down from Shivelbine’s Music and kitty-corner from Annie Laurie’s Antiques.   My own space!  A window!  Street front!  Parking in front, in back and a few doors down in the city lot across from The Discovery Playhouse.

It is a bigger shop so I’ll be carrying more yarns and have a few comfy chairs along with my table and chairs in the back.  There will be coffee, tea, water and wine for refreshment and there will usually be cookies around (and chocolate, of course).

The new hours will be Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday 1:00 – 6:00 and Friday and Saturday 10:00 – 5:00.  I want to stress the shop is open not just for sales but for a place to gather and knit, crochet, chat, share.

Looking forward to seeing you soon!



Hot and humid.  July in Missouri.  River is rising from all the rains up north.  We have received rains, but they have been hard and quick and we haven’t had the flooding that the north has had.

Classes have not gone well.  People sign up and don’t attend.  Most don’t tell you they are not coming.  In the future, I will get an email or phone and remind people in case they forget.  Not a big deal currently because I am holding classes during shop hours.  It will become a bigger issue when I start a night class in the fall.

So many yarns in.  I carry all kinds of fibers and blends from many vendors.  Primary vendors are Kraemer, Ella Rae, Berroco, Viking, Lang, Cascade, James C. Brett, Araucania, Mountain Colors, Juniper Moon Farms……  More is ordered.  I did order Madelinetosh but delivery time is 14 weeks.  Yikes.  I have one wonderful customer that keeps coming it to check if it is here.   I’ll make sure I post here and on Facebook when it arrives.

I have really enjoyed meeting downtown merchants.  The group we are part of is Old Town Cape.  We met last night to start planning for the premiere of Gone Girl on October 3rd.  A large part of the film was done here in Cape.

Come see me!  I look forward to the day that groups get together to sit and knit (or crochet) in the shop on a regular basis.




 Excitement and nervousness.   My first class starts today.  Beginning Knitting.  Class one session one of two.  Step two of business plan.   I’m very excited and hope I do a good job of teaching three women to enjoy knitting.  And Saturday is Class two session one of two.   Four new women.    And my first July class is full and I haven’t even posted it yet!

Austin and I are going to start working on the website soon (about time).  Now that he is done with college and I have the shop up and running, we’ll put our heads together.
