I love test knitting and this summer I had the great pleasure of testing a clutch of beauties for Tin Can Knits and now that their print and e-book is available for pre-order, I can finally talk about them. (I also did some projects for Shannon Cook and Jane Richmond but will write about those when the veil of secrecy has been lifted.) TCK’s latest book is called Road Trip and, like any good road trip, it’s awesome. According to their website, Emily and Alexa say that the book is “inspired our adventures across Canada; winding roads through mountain passes, coffee in quaint towns, and bonfires on remote beaches. With cables, colourwork and lace, Road Trip is full of delicious designs.” The three patterns from the book that I tested were two gorgeous cardigans – cable-yoked Caribou and stranded-yoke Clayoquot and a matching Clayoquot toque. I made wee baby sizes for the gift stash (come on young, fertile friends of mine – have some more babies so I can give these a good home!) but the patterns are written for all sizes, from newborns through 4XL.
