So, I don't know about you, but I spend a lot of time poking around Ravelry and reading knitting and fiber blogs. I have a Ravelry queue that's a brillion items long. Even though I know it's unlikely I'll actually make the majority of those things, I really enjoy looking at the colours, shapes, and ideas circulating in the fiber arts world. With their west coast aesthetic and simple, high-impact designs, Tin Can Knits is one of my favourite design collectives right now.
I'm really intrigued by their new Simple Collection, with patterns intended to help walk newer knitters through learning some key skills, but also appealing to experienced knitters. There's an amazing image showing the patterns in the collection and the skills they'll help with here.
Tin Can Knits has several other collections besides the Simple Collection - I'm especially partial to Pacific Knits, and I'm hoping I can squeeze a Low Tide Cardigan out of a couple of skeins of Sunshine Yarns Classic Sock (in green, of course!) before the summer is over :)
Have you knit or queued any Tin Can Knits patterns? Which designers or design collectives are making your heart go pitter-pat these days?
