Hello wool pals, settle in – there is a lot of woolly magic to get through in this episode. There is an interview with Esther Rutter, author of This Golden Fleece and a recording from Fine Fettle Fibres, with Alice Underwood from the Rare Breed Survival Trust.
Do you need more inspiration for the Tin Can Knits-along? I’ve got some for you right here and who knows how many you may be able to make during our winter KAL (1 Dec-14 Feb) I’ve knit and re-knit quite a lot of TCK accessories, and here are the ones calling out to me for this KAL, as well as the ones which are calling out to me again. All images (unless otherwise noted) belong to Tin Can Knits and are used with kind permission. | Heads I made Loch from Handmade in the UK and I gave it away as a present – what a fool! haha! It was in Ripples Craft Sport and I really need to make it again – there are matching mittens too! Mountain Mist appears in Strange Brew and I think this would be beautiful in natural colours – but you could go mad, couldn’t you? Make them for all the family in their favourite shades.
What do you think, will you be casting on a sweater in the Tin Can Knits-along this winter?
It’s been a little while since we had a KAL and what better way to celebrate the name change than a new knitalong?!
For a really long time I’ve fancied doing a Tin Can Knits KAL, so this winter we’re gonna do it!
Before showing you my newest favourite knitted garment, I know you are dying to know who won the contest for the Tin Can Knits ebook.
We draw winners old school at Casa KnitBritish!
When I received my first delivery from Foula Wool – neat little, springy, soft 25g cakes – they were just begging to be played with in a fun way
If it’s Tin Can Knits you know it’s going to be beautiful, stylish patterns, designed with a finger on the pulse of what knitters want to make AND wear! Add to that a collection designed entirely in British wool or by UK dyers and I feel like throwing a parade!
(and one lucky reader can win a copy!)
Within mere moments of finding out I had already begun to formulate a wishlist, but more than the love of wool (if there could there *be* more!) I am really looking forward to meeting and putting real faces to the Twitter profile pictures!
