Flax...for Veda

TinCanKnits is one of my favourite knitting designers out there. Partly coz they're local to me, and partly coz they're patterns are simply awesome. Simple. Awesome. Simply awesome.

I made my very first knitted sweater this month.... following one of their most popular (and free) patterns called "Flax". Its from their "Simple Collection" ... a collection of free patterns for everything from head to toe. It turned out so great! My little girl loves it, which is the most important part ofcourse.

The yarn is called "Fall Rainbow" by Shasta Daisy Knits. Such a pretty and girly colorway.



I might have to make one in my size soon :)

Giveaway Time!

Every now and then, I like to switch things up and make something new, and different from my usual items.

Lately, I've had a few knitting orders, and also been doing some personal knitting projects. To break up the monotony, I'm going to be sewing up a wristlet this weekend. So while I was picking out the fabrics for it, I thought, why not add wristlets to my line up? And giveaway the one I am making this weekend? 

So that's exactly what I will be doing. To enter the giveaway, simply head over to my facebook page, find the pinned post and comment with your favorite color combinations. I will pick a winner at 6pm on Sunday, January 5th. 

I can't promise that the winner will get their exact color choices ...as I will be making up the wristlet before I pick the winner. But your comments will definitely give me an idea of what is popular. 

So go on and enter the giveaway! Good Luck!
