Mad Colour from Tin Can Knits

Our friends Alexa and Emily over at Tin Can Knits have released a new book! Mad Colour is all about playful exploration, from rainbows to stripes, polka dots to rich ombre. It’s an enchanting ensemble of garments and accessories, sized from child to mama!

Using our Trinity Worsted (shown in Deep Cove and Pistachio), the gals were inspired by that fateful year when we anticipated the end of the world because of Y2K. Eclectic, bold, and ready for whichever direction we were going to go.
