The beautiful duo that makes up Tin Can Knits (Emily Wessel and Alexa Ludeman) is at it again. “It’ being coming up with designs that both do good in the world and inspire our artistic drive. With a collaboration of other designers, they launched a new book yesterday, Heart On My Sleeve, with 100% of the net proceeds going to The Against Malaria Foundation.
“We chose to donate to the Against Malaria Foundation because the need spoke to us personally as mothers. Malaria is a preventable disease – no one need die of it.Yet thousands of small children and pregnant women die of it every day. Malaria is relatively cheap to prevent, which means that every ebook sold and every dollar youdonate really counts toward saving lives and improving economies.”
A total of nine knit designers started with a basic sleeve and body pattern, but then dressed it up with a unique yoke. From stripes to fair isle or soft texture to cables, the design options seem endless. With everything sized from baby to big, there is literally something for everyone. We are delighted that they used our Superwash DK for the baby-sized version of Heartstring by Joji Locatelli!
We thought it would be fun to to explore a couple of other colour options. What do you think?
Tin Can Knits has also kicked off a Knitalong (KAL) on their Ravelry Group (and yes, we’ve totally donated to the giveaway), so head on over and get knitting for a great cause.
