Hello, Yarnies <3
Here we are! Another week down and another night of spectacular yarny yarn!
We had lots of fun tonight, can you tell? <3 <3 <3
Let's jump straight in <3
Dates for the diary <3
Open Days this week - we are having two open days this week, Friday 31/1 & Sunday 2/2. Normal opening hours are 10am-2pm.
Craft Alive Penrith - 7th - 9th February, come and say 'hi!' Nicole and Shelby love seeing everyone in person!
Shelby’s Show & Tell
Shelby made a 'thing'! And not just any 'thing', she made a Sizzlin' Snag!
It was totally cute, Shelby thinks she has 'peaked', she is so proud! And so are we! This little sausage sizzle is the cutest, most original little sausage you'll ever see <3
And it's life size!!
Shelby looks like she wants to eat it hehehe I mean, it is made out of beautiful Cahlista, so it is totally delicious!!
Shelby said that sausage sizzles are most commonly used as a 'fundraiser', so she thought she would embrace this tradition! She is selling the pattern for $5, with the proceeds going to WIRES Australia.
Also, did you see Shelby wrote her first blog post to accompany her latest make??? No? Well, click here to check it out :)
Shelby is also super clever and started this tag. If you make her Sizzlin' Snag, then be sure to tag #YarnishMakesADifference
Nicole made a sausage too! She used Papatya and cut up the cake. Hers turned out to be wholemeal bread topped with caramelised onions!
I was fortunate enough to test this adorable pattern! I made it out of Catona yarn and I love it!
New Scheepjes Yarns
Furry Tales - 100% Polyester | 110g (57m) - $11
Soooo fluffy and it comes in soooo many colours! Each ball is made up of 'teddy-bear like fabric' strips: fabric on one side and the fluff on the other.
There are two collections, the brights and the Winter Tales (which has a silver tip).
These are perfect for toys, pillows, blankets and lots more.
Mighty - 32% Jute / 68% Cotton | 50g (80m) - $6
What can we say??? This yarn is so lovely and durable! Perfect for rugs, bags, baskets and other projects that need a touch of 'mighty' strength. We have all the colours available.
New After Party Patterns
After Party - 93 Hip Dip Cardigan (Knit) - this beautiful cardi reminds me of the Ivy-League! So Elle-Woods from Legally Blonde!
After Party - 97 Polka Pop Tote (Crochet) - made with the new Mighty Yarn in Oatmeal. This bag is sooo kitsch! We love it and you can decorate it any way you like. But if you like the pom-pom styling, then we have these handy-dandy pom-pom makers in stock here.
Sweet Crochet Friends - 3 copies - $55 each, you may remember that last week Nicole and Shelby showed off the little doll I made them? Well, that came from this adorable book! Now available.

Nicole had the Muffin Mini Lux to show us and, oh man, it was beautiful!! This has about a weight of the Whirl, so Weight 1-ish (4-ply). There are four strands together to make the yarn.
Check this out! The yarn kinda 'sausages out' as you use it
This yarn has quite a bit of stretch, you can't capture this in a picture, so if you have the time, go and watch the video to see Nicole play her Yarn Accordion! (Much to Shelby feeling VERY grossed out!! haha)
Just a quick note though:
If you put other 'non-Stenli' items into your cart, you will have to wait for the Stenli arrives until alllll your items can be shipped to you. So! Jump online pre-order your Stenli yarn in one separate transaction (don't forget to order over $150 to take advantage of free-shipping!).
Our Papatya Sale continues!
BUY 3 GET 1 FREE - Milano, Papatya & Cicibebe
Until the end of January!! So midnight Friday, you have 4 days to capitalise on this amazing deal :)
And that's it!
Happy Yarning, I'm off to choose my Stenli Yarn hehehe
