What's that in the background there, behind the tissue paper pompom? It's the newest edition to our garment display in the shop: Jacqui's Lush cardigan (boy, she's a fast knitter)! Lush is Tin Can Knit's beautiful design, and it's the pattern Emily Wessel will be using for her cardigan workshop at the end of June. (There's still places left for that, and for her baby blanket workshop as well - you'll find details at our booking page). Jacqui used Juniper Moon Farm's gorgeous Findley DK for hers - it's a beautifully plied silk and merino blend, and it's delicious to work with. Just look at the stitch definition on the Lush lace.... And the pompom? We can't stop making them, you see, using this tutorial, and we're having a tremendous amount of fun doing it! It's properly spring now, so why not celebrate with some tissue paper frivolity!
