Are you visiting Edinburgh for EYF this year? Be sure to enjoy some haggis, kiss a cutie in a kilt, buy yarn you love, and stop by the Tin Can Knits booth (M9, across from Brooklyn Tweed)!
We'll have ALL the Heart On My Sleeve sweaters on display, as well the designs from our new book Mad Colour! So it will be an exciting and wool packed two days.
Heart On My Sleeve
knit with care
Heart on my Sleeve is a book of 8 sweater patterns, sized baby to big, from 9 different designers. Designs have been donated by Shannon Cook, Romi Hill, Bristol Ivy, Tanis Lavallée, Joji Locatelli, Alexa Ludeman, Jane Richmond, Ysolda Teague, and Alexa Ludeman and Emily Wessel of Tin Can Knits. The project and ebook were coordinated by Tin Can Knits. Check out the designs now!
For each $18 ebook sold, $16.80 USD is donated to the Against Malaria Foundation (the remainder is made up of Paypal and Ravelry fees). Each ebook purchased will help purchase nets that keep people safe. What do you need to do? Just buy the book and get knitting!
As designers, we are constantly inspired and impressed by the knitting community. Our work goes out into the world and passes through so many hands, and in this we saw an opportunity to contribute.
UPDATE March 20 2017 - We've already donated $36,640 USD! This buys 14,655 nets, protecting 26,000 people which is the entire population of 40-50 villages!
Check the fundraising progress here.
We will be hosting a KAL in our Ravelry group from February 14th (cast on today!) to April 18th, all the details on how to enter can be found here. There are awesome prizes from Baa Ram Ewe, Fringe Supply Co, Pom Pom Quarterly SweetGeorgia Yarns, Tanis Fiber Arts, The Loveliest Yarn Company, and YOTH yarns.

Ridgeline is designed in a beautiful new base from Rainbow Heirloom. Heritage DK is 100% british wool, and exquisite blend of 75% Bluefaced Leicester and 25% grey Masham. With Nina's beautifully subtle colours overlaid on this heathered base, this yarn is a real joy to work with!
Kits for the Ridgeline hat and mittens will be available at booth M9 at Edinburgh Yarn Festival (and on the Rainbow Heirloom website after the show too!).
