GLYC Sponsor: Tin Can Knits

Emily Wessel and Alexa Ludeman are the dynamic duo behind Tin Can Knits, a trans-Atlantic design partnership. Based in Edinburgh and Vancouver respectively, Emily and Alexa are known for fun and wearable designs, that cover a broad range from blankets to accessories to sweaters. 

We particularly like the fact that their sweater patterns are typically sized from newborn to 4XL, which is typically a range in finished chest measurements of up to 40 inches/102 cm!!! They've also got a wealth of tutorials on their website, as a number of free patterns, if you'd like to give their designs a try.

It's been a busy time in the TCK family this summer, with both partners having new babies join their family line up - congratulations to all! You'd think that might slow them down a bit, but they've got a new book coming out this autumn, and a brand new pattern for a colorwork sweater coming out any day now! To help support the GLYC, Tin Can Knits are contributing download codes for the new sweater for the goody bags, and a couple copies of their new book for door prizes*.

You can find Tin Can Knits on their website, on their Ravelry group and designer page, and on Facebook, TwitterInstagram and Pinterest. Thanks again to Alexa and Emily for their support, and enjoy those new baby snuggles!

* As long as it's in print by then, otherwise we'll have another book for you.
