Kevin spotted this offer and shared on Facebook with the Powell River Yarn and Fiber group. Roisin and I were fortunate to have the GBOW table right next to Gourmet Crafter the yarn dying business run by Alexa (one half of Tin Can Knits) so she had lots of nice yarn, but she also had copies of the Pacific Knits book (referred to below) and examples of some of the items in the book. One of the great things about Alexa and Emily’s patterns are they sized from babies to big men. 
Alexa and another Emily (she is often a model for Alexa and Emily, is on the cover of Great White North, and is a knitter also) were great neighbours…and Tin Can Knits has terrific patterns, so check this offer out! And as you’re browsing the patterns, take time to read the descriptions. They are often funny.

“At Tin Can Knits we share our love for knitting by bringing you designs we adore and in-depth tutorials to expand your skills. 2012 has been extremely busy and fruitful for us – we published 2 new books : PACIFIC KNITS and GREAT WHITE NORTH (a whopping 26 designs, all available individually too) plus some fabulous tutorials : Gramps top-down sweater series, POP blanket tutorial, and Sweater Sizing Tips.

We do our best to give you want you want, and with that in mind, our gift to you this Christmas is one free pattern of your choice!
