    I love the new Roadtrip book, it’s a tough one picking a favourite but if I had to it would be the Old Growth cardigan.

    • tracy October 5, 2014 at 11:32 am #

      I love the Old Growth Cardigan

  2. melissa September 29, 2014 at 5:47 pm #

    tough decision, but i’d choose either prairie fire for my daughters, or grayling for myself!

  3. Susanne September 29, 2014 at 5:50 pm #

    I adore the Old Growth cardigan! I can’t wait to finish grad school in December to get started!

    • Elizabeth Hutton October 3, 2014 at 2:20 pm #

      I love them all. First one I will knit is Old Growth.

  4. Asheley September 29, 2014 at 5:53 pm #

    My favorite item from “Road Trip” (if I have to choose just one!) would be the grayling mittens. Last winter in Chicago was brutal and my hands spent the greater part of winter in mittens. I would love to make a new pair in a bright color like grasshopper to make it through another winter!!!!

  5. Susanne September 29, 2014 at 5:56 pm #

    I tweeted and shared on FB via Instagram! Thanks for the giveaway!

  6. GramPam September 29, 2014 at 5:58 pm #

    Love TKC. :) I think Old Growth has to be my favorite in this collection, although Prairie Fire is a very close second!

  7. Christina September 29, 2014 at 6:00 pm #

    I love TinCan Knits and their patterns!!!! My current favorite sweater is North Shore. Clayoquot cardigan is gorgeous!

  8. Philam September 29, 2014 at 6:08 pm #

    I love the Clayoquot Cardigan. I haven’t knit a colour work project yet and this one would be a great first-time project. Great giveaway!

  9. Stacey September 29, 2014 at 6:22 pm #

    i think i would start with the Apple Pie hat, but the Granola socks are a very close second!

  10. Camanoah September 29, 2014 at 6:50 pm #

    Love all the patterns, but Clayoquot has my mind spinning with color ideas.

  11. Tina W September 29, 2014 at 7:07 pm #

    I absolutely love the Bonfire blanket–I was lucky to be a test knitter for it!

  12. Tamara September 29, 2014 at 7:33 pm #

    I love the prairie fire pullover. It looks very nice!

  13. Debra B September 29, 2014 at 7:42 pm #

    I love the Clayoquot toque.

  14. Rachel September 29, 2014 at 7:47 pm #

    It’s hard to choose! I think my favorite from Road Trip would be grayling (I’ve been on such a mitten kick), but clayoquot is a close second.

  15. Aimee C September 29, 2014 at 8:09 pm #

    My fave is the Old Growth Cardigan – would love to win!

  16. nobutterfly September 29, 2014 at 8:10 pm #

    Prairie fire is my favorite, but I love a lot of those new TCK patterns

  17. Aimee C September 29, 2014 at 8:14 pm #

    Have also shared on Facebook and I’ve tweeted it on Twitter! ❤

  18. Penny Jenkins September 29, 2014 at 8:19 pm #

    I met Emily at Yarndale last Saturday and was wowed by the patterns and yarn on offer. I’d not heard of Tin Can Knits before and came away a big fan. I love the Old Growth pattern and would love to knit that for myself please. It’s great to see that the pattern has sizes from child to adult. I’m a smallish woman and often find that teen sizes fit better than a woman’s small.

  19. Ellen September 29, 2014 at 8:19 pm #

    I love that all their designs come in so many sizes. It is hard to chose a favourite, but I’m thinking that everyone on my Christmas list is getting a Stovetop hat.

  20. Stephanie. September 29, 2014 at 8:26 pm #

    I have to say I am really torn on this. Road Trip is amazing, just like their many other wonderful pattern collections. But right now I am really digging colour work so I’d have to say Clayoquot just for that.

  21. Charlotte September 29, 2014 at 8:29 pm #

    Lots of nice patterns, but I particularly like the look of the Granola socks!

  22. Charlotte September 29, 2014 at 8:39 pm #

    I also tweeted about this (@Aviatrix79):

    Knitters! @pompommag Pomcast 5 is out, including a great @tincanknits book & yarn giveaway… http://www.pompommag.com/pomcast-5-super-epic-win/

  23. Bonnie Marie September 29, 2014 at 8:39 pm #

    I love everything Tin Can Knits does, and this new collection is no exception. I think Old Growth may be my favourite. It’s simple yet super stylish, just what I need in my wardrobe!

  24. Melanie September 29, 2014 at 9:53 pm #

    Its a tough decision as they are all lovely designs but my fave has to be Prairie Fire

  25. Pat Collingwood September 29, 2014 at 9:58 pm #

    I love the old growth cardigan

  26. Brenda September 29, 2014 at 10:10 pm #

    I would love to win! I love the Old Growth sweater.


    (goodstuff on Rav)

  27. Jacie Wiggs September 29, 2014 at 10:43 pm #

    Tin Can Knits taught me how to knit again! I love their well written and designed patterns and I love this new collection. The Clayoquot cardi is a beauty and my favorite. : )

  28. ali September 30, 2014 at 1:48 am #

    I adore carabou. I love that I can make one for myself and each of my sons. Lovely podcast!

  29. Jess Kahele September 30, 2014 at 2:31 am #

    Clayoquot Toque is definitely my favorite!!! I’m partial to hats though. :D

  30. Melissa m September 30, 2014 at 3:15 am #

    Old Growth! So lovely!!!

  31. Melissa m September 30, 2014 at 3:16 am #

    Retweeted on twitter! Too good not to share!

  32. Shanna September 30, 2014 at 3:33 am #

    I’ve had my eye on the Road Trip collection for a little while now, especially the Prairie Fire pattern!

  33. Teresa Miller September 30, 2014 at 4:02 am #

    Old Growth is my favorite with Granola coming in at a close second.

  34. L September 30, 2014 at 6:36 am #

    Beautiful collection! Too difficult to choose between Prarie Fire and Old Growth!

  35. Karin September 30, 2014 at 8:11 am #

    Fantastic collection (beautiful settings) and I love the vast number of sizes Tin Can Knits offers. That said, and this is tough, but I’d adore Rivulet for me, me, me as I loves me some fringe! and I would have a blast knitting Clayoquot for my best friend’s little dude. That’s like one favorite right?, one for me and one for a gift?

    PS Great episode, wonderful giveaway and the not knowing who Joan Baez is cracked me up, loved that! .

  36. Fen September 30, 2014 at 9:58 am #

    My favourite is the Old Growth Cardigan. Ta for hosting the giveaway!

  37. Fen September 30, 2014 at 10:13 am #

    shared in on my fb as well! :)

  38. lea lacoste September 30, 2014 at 10:24 am #

    I almost picked the Granola socks because you know, awesome name! but i’m completely in love with the Grayling mitts!!

  39. lea lacoste September 30, 2014 at 10:25 am #

    also tweeted about the giveaway :) I’m lea_lacoste on Twitter

  40. alabamawhirly September 30, 2014 at 10:37 am #

    I think I wold have to pick all the small people things as I have two new nieces and that means you can knit more stuff quicker – especially love clayoquot and old growth and maybe as a love treat to myself grayling or even be a crazy aunt and be matchy with a clayoquot too – nothing wrong with being a weird aunt….

  41. heather September 30, 2014 at 3:07 pm #

    I would love to knit the old growth cardigan. i am knitting a lush cardigan at the moment and the pattern is lovely1

  42. Helen Griffin September 30, 2014 at 3:18 pm #

    Definitely, my favourite pattern is Old Growth, but the wonderful thing about TinCanKnits books is that it isn’t just one pattern that catches my eye! They are all gorgeous! I think the first thing I would make is the Viewfinder Cowl, because I have the perfect yarn just waiting for the perfect pattern!

  43. Amy September 30, 2014 at 4:27 pm #

    Hard to choose! But really in love with Prairie Fire.

  44. Anja September 30, 2014 at 6:13 pm #

    I love Clayoquot, Prairie Fire, Granola,…. love them all…

  45. Anja September 30, 2014 at 6:42 pm #

    Clayoquot is gorgeous, Granola socks are very beautiful!

    Shared on Instagram (I’m Adebar there)

  47. Suzy September 30, 2014 at 9:37 pm #

    The patterns are all so lovely, but my fav is Grayling.

  48. Heather Baylis October 1, 2014 at 1:30 am #

    Love the Old Growth cardigan – love it!!! Maybe it will be my first cardigan—-hmmmm what yarn to use…..

  49. Heather Baylis October 1, 2014 at 1:34 am #

    Posted on facebook as well

  50. Beth October 1, 2014 at 8:12 am #

    What a wonderful giveaway! I love the stovetop hat- the perfect thing for winter now the weather is closing in.

  51. Gemma October 1, 2014 at 8:34 am #

    Many good patterns, I love Clayoquot most, plus bonus love goes to the Grayling mittens! Lovely publication.

  52. Tanya October 1, 2014 at 12:04 pm #

    I really love Caribou but also the Grayling mittens – great designs.

  53. Kitty October 1, 2014 at 3:02 pm #

    I adore Caribou – I’d love to knit one in a deep indigo or a bright red!

  54. Sarah October 1, 2014 at 3:45 pm #

    I love the Clayoquot sweater…but really everything! I just got the ebook and I’m so excited to make it all!

  55. Stephanie October 1, 2014 at 3:51 pm #

    It’s so hard to choose…I really like Rivulet, it’s a style of shawl I’ve never knitted. And I also have to mention Prairie Fire, it’s a beautiful design.

  56. Kim October 2, 2014 at 12:29 pm #

    I like the Apple Pie hat.

  57. Angela October 2, 2014 at 12:30 pm #

    Awesome book. Awesome yarns :)

  58. Sara October 2, 2014 at 12:36 pm #

    Love the Caribou Cardigan, Apple Pie Hat and Bonfire blanket!! Love the cables!

  59. Michele October 2, 2014 at 12:36 pm #

    I have to say the Clayoquot cardi is my favorite, but the entire collection is great and I can’t decide where to start.

  60. Deb October 2, 2014 at 12:44 pm #

    I’m partial to the Ammolite cowl. It’s lovely, as are all the patterns in the book!

  61. Deborah October 2, 2014 at 12:46 pm #

    Love them all. But the first ones I’ll be knitting is the Clayoquot sweater and hats.

  62. Lorna October 2, 2014 at 12:52 pm #

    I would choose the Old Growth cardigan pattern. Love an excuse to show off beautiful buttons on this versatile pattern.

  63. sarah October 2, 2014 at 12:53 pm #

    I had the pleasure of test knitting the Clayoquot cardigan and loved the colour work. I think the next pattern I would like to make from Road Trip is the Grayling mitten pattern. I’m a huge fan of all their patterns.

  64. Debbie McP October 2, 2014 at 12:53 pm #

    Since my daughter just asked for a cabled hat, my eyes immediately went to Stovepipe. There are lots of winners in this collection and thanks for the chance to win! I have been following TCK for a while. Appreciate all their free patterns and tutorials!

  65. Diane D October 2, 2014 at 12:54 pm #

    I love Old Growth cardigan and think that all the new little ones in my extended family are in need of new sweaters in varying colors. Good excuse to knit.

  66. Amanda U. October 2, 2014 at 12:55 pm #

    I love the Clayoquot cardigan but Old Growth is a close second. Thanks for the chance to win!

  67. Dawne October 2, 2014 at 12:57 pm #

    It is very hard to pick one favourite from this collection, I adore Tin Can Knits! Bonfire is really calling me though, I’d love to curl up with it! :)

  68. Kate October 2, 2014 at 1:02 pm #

    Oh, love the sneak peek photos of that location, it looks schmancy (: Love me some TCK, and this new ebook doesn’t disappoint! My favorite sweater is Praire Fire and my favorite instant gratification project is Apple Pie. It really does look like latticed pie crust! Perfect for the season.

  69. Yvonne October 2, 2014 at 1:14 pm #

    All of the patterns are beautiful. My fVorite is Clayoquot.

  70. Karen October 2, 2014 at 1:18 pm #

    This looks like a wonderful book. I especially like the Old Growth cardigan (I am a big fan of leaves in my knits) and the Bonfire blanket. That one would take a while, but what a gem to own once it was finished.

  71. Cathy Kostka October 2, 2014 at 1:19 pm #

    Oh my gosh, it’s so hard to pick a favorite pattern from Road Trip, because I love the all! If I have to pick I’d say Old Growth. Love Tin Can Knit!

  72. Karen October 2, 2014 at 1:20 pm #

    This looks like a wonderful book. I’ll putter over to Facebook right now and mention it to everyone there (who looks at my page, anyway). Maybe there will be a whole forest of Old Growth Cardigans in the wild soon!

  73. Allison October 2, 2014 at 1:24 pm #

    I am in love with the Grayling mittens! Just waiting to find the perfect yarn to cast on with!

  74. Elizabeth October 2, 2014 at 1:43 pm #

    I am really loving the Granola sock pattern. Have been knitting a lot of socks lately (my husband just loves them!) and feel like I’m constantly looking for new pattern ideas. Those look so textured and cozy. :)

  75. Melanie October 2, 2014 at 1:44 pm #

    This is another beautiful collection from the ladies at Tin Can Knits, so it is tough to pick a favourite. I think I would have to go with Caribou because I love the yoke so much!

  76. Melanie October 2, 2014 at 1:46 pm #

    I am LOVING the Clayoquot cardigan. Added it to my queue!! :D

  77. Micheline Lefebvre October 2, 2014 at 1:49 pm #

    I just love all TinCanKnits patterns. My favorite in Road Trip is Old Growth.

  78. Linda B October 2, 2014 at 1:50 pm #

    Hard to choose just one, … I love Caribou closely followed by Clayoquot. Wonderful giveaway !

  79. Courtney J October 2, 2014 at 1:56 pm #

    I love to do colorwork so the Clayoquot sweater and hat are my favorite!

  80. Anne Marie October 2, 2014 at 2:04 pm #

    I love Clayoquot. It reminds me of a sweater my mom wore a lot when I was little.

  81. Kris H October 2, 2014 at 2:04 pm #

    I love the Paddle pattern…I think it is something I could handle and I’ve been wanting to make fingerless gloves :)

  82. Susan October 2, 2014 at 2:08 pm #

    It really is difficult to choose a favourite pattern, especially after seeing all of the pieces in person. But I’m going to choose Prairie Fire.

  83. Leta October 2, 2014 at 2:09 pm #

    Beautiful yarns. This is a great giveaway.

  84. Leta October 2, 2014 at 2:10 pm #

    I liked you on facebook. I could not make up my mind which pattern I would knit first. So hard to choose one.

  85. matt October 2, 2014 at 2:11 pm #

    Id have to say the stovetop hat. I love most everything else, but as a guy, it isn’t something I’d knit for myself.

  86. Debbie October 2, 2014 at 2:16 pm #

    I love the road trip book. All the patterns are fantastic but I think prairie fire might be my favorite.

  87. Jennifer October 2, 2014 at 2:33 pm #

    I want to knit every blanket Tin Can knits has come up with, but so much yarn goes into a blanket! I’d definitely like to try Clayoquot with some beautiful rainbow colors. I also really like Old Growth,I want to knit that nice leaf!

  88. Bev October 2, 2014 at 2:44 pm #

    Wow … what a difficult decision to make. I sort have had a bug lately for lace, so I am probably going to say Viewfinder and it would be so appropriate to wear in our fall/winter here on the west coast of Vancouver. Congratulations on your new book Tin Can Knits …

  89. Erin October 2, 2014 at 2:48 pm #

    Oh, WOW! I’d looooove to win that sweater’s worth….I love all Tin Can Knits, and it’s hard to choose – but I’d have to say that I like Apple Pie the best – and Paddle second best. All of Road Trip is pretty awesome, though.

  90. Cheryl October 2, 2014 at 2:55 pm #

    I love the clayoquot cardigan, especially with the dark background

  91. TrishKnits October 2, 2014 at 2:55 pm #

    The TCK ladies are the best – I love everything in this book but I think the Clayoquot cardigan is my most favourite. I test knit it in a baby size but really want one for me! I would love love love to win – Emily’s yarn looks so delicious!

  92. Julie Sall October 2, 2014 at 2:57 pm #

    These sweaters and hats are great. Can’t wait to try them out and the yarn looks luscious!

  93. TrishKnits October 2, 2014 at 3:00 pm #

    P.S. I’ve also Tweeted and shared on FB. (I really, really want to win!) Thanks for an awesome giveaway!

  94. Anya October 2, 2014 at 3:01 pm #

    Granola socks– I love the wheat pattern, pretty and rustic at the same time.

  95. Alex October 2, 2014 at 3:14 pm #

    I really love the Bonfire Blanket and Apple Pie Hat. Was so nice to see some of the samples at Yarndale last Sunday :)

  96. Dona Carberry October 2, 2014 at 3:16 pm #

    I love all of them but really like the Clayoquot sweater. It’s adorable in adult and child sizes!

  97. Dona Carberry October 2, 2014 at 3:19 pm #

    I also shared on Facebook! Awesome contest.

  98. KnittingAmyK October 2, 2014 at 3:23 pm #

    I adore Old Growth and Paddle. Both are simple but have fun details that you can’t ignore.

  99. sarah October 2, 2014 at 3:24 pm #

    I absolutely love Stovetop! The textures are beautiful – love the pompom on top!

  100. Debra G October 2, 2014 at 3:29 pm #

    I would make Clayoquot Sweater it is so beautiful! Then I would have 4 Tin Can Knits projects in play!

  101. Noa October 2, 2014 at 3:32 pm #

    I love all the patterns in Road Trip by TCK, but my favorite is the Caribou Cardigan – I would love to make ones for me and both of my little girls.

  102. Katherine October 2, 2014 at 3:36 pm #

    I test knit the Caribou Cardigan and Lumberjack mitts, both of which I truly enjoyed. I would love to knit the Clayquot Cardigan next! What a great collection of wearable designs!!

  103. Ashley October 2, 2014 at 3:37 pm #

    I have loved TCK patterns since I saw them during the BC Yarn Harvest and fell in love with the little booties and the sweaters and the hats! I’m a sucker for a good hat, especially ones that the men ask for their birthday/xmas gifts!
    That’s why I love the Clayoquot Toque! Any colour they want (including all manners of black), something interesting for me while knitting and a gift they wear until it’s felted into their ski helmet!

  104. Debra G October 2, 2014 at 3:39 pm #

    Tweeted about this

  105. Jacinta October 2, 2014 at 3:43 pm #

    I love all the designs, but my favourite would be Prairie Fire! Thank you for the chance to win:-)

  106. florapie October 2, 2014 at 3:45 pm #

    In my dreamworld, I would make Clayoquot! In my real-life, busy world, I will make Grayling. Looking forward to picking up the book at Knit City this weekend!

  107. SoozB October 2, 2014 at 4:06 pm #

    Hmm, toss-up between Grayling and Apple Pie. So many nice patterns.

  108. Beverly October 2, 2014 at 4:17 pm #

    I would love to make Prairie Fire, but must admit that anything in that book would be lovely!

  109. Andrea B October 2, 2014 at 4:20 pm #

    I’d go with Prairie Fire

  110. miss agnes October 2, 2014 at 4:39 pm #

    Tin Can Knits collections are always superb. There are a number of patterns I would love to do, but the first that jumps at me is the Apple Pie hat. And I have the very yarn to go with the pattern, a beautiful yellow Malabrigo.
    This is a fantastic giveaway, thanks for organizing it.

  111. Selina October 2, 2014 at 4:41 pm #

    Love bonfire but I would have to make three to avoid any jealousy, one for hubby, one for me and one for my cat that loves to snuggle under a blanket in winter!

  112. Mary Maarse October 2, 2014 at 5:18 pm #

    That’s not easy but I think the first item I would like to make would be the Old Growth Forest cardigan.
    I love the pattern. A great book!

  113. Sara October 2, 2014 at 5:18 pm #

    All the patterns are amazing, but if I have to choose only one, I would choose to knit the prairie fire, for myself! Thank for the opportunity to win!

  114. Merry October 2, 2014 at 5:18 pm #

    As an avid sock knitter, I have to say it’s the granola socks for me. : )

    I am so excited to see Stovetop published in a whole collection of beautiful cabled things! I’ve already knit up one of those wee toques, so my other favourite would have to be the grayling mittens. Can’t have warm enough hands!

  116. Erika October 2, 2014 at 5:30 pm #

    I love the collection and find myself torn between Prairie Fire and Old Growth. Prairie Fire edging out a win though! I’m looking forward to getting my Christmas knitting complete and starting in some projects from the Road Trip collection. Thank you for a great contest

  117. eleyne October 2, 2014 at 5:41 pm #

    I’m having a small ongoing stranded knitting obsession right now, so clayoquot (cardigan, but also the hat!) is calling to me.

  118. Debi October 2, 2014 at 5:56 pm #

    Wow, so hard to choose just one pattern from this book, but I think the first one I want to make is Old Growth…love it! Thanks for the opportunity to play! :)

  119. Marilynn Hart October 2, 2014 at 6:06 pm #

    This was a tough call, but I am loving the Stovetop hat! I’d love to make matching hats for my son, my husband and myself. Thank you for the chance to win.

  120. emily October 2, 2014 at 6:10 pm #

    I love all if the Road Trip patterns, but I especially love the Ammolite cowl.

  121. Nance October 2, 2014 at 6:15 pm #

    I ordered Road Trip as soon as I heard about it. I expect I will make many of these patterns and the one I keep coming back to is the Clayoquot cardigan – I think I will begin there.


  122. Dana October 2, 2014 at 6:16 pm #

    I love Prairie Fire, and would make it in a red/purple colourway. Thanks for the chance to win!

  123. Barbara October 2, 2014 at 6:19 pm #

    caribou, caribou — definitely caribou!!!

  124. Bonnie October 2, 2014 at 6:59 pm #

    I love Old Growth! Definitely on my must-knit list!

  125. Shelly L. Castille October 2, 2014 at 7:28 pm #

    My favorite pattern from Road Trip is CARIBOU. Can’t wait to cast on. :)

  126. Jessica Powers October 2, 2014 at 7:53 pm #

    Yay, more PomCast! TCK’s newest collection is lovely, everytime I look at the patterns Grayling jumps out and I get confused by what color would I knit it in, haha, such a hard life problem!

  127. kristine October 2, 2014 at 8:05 pm #

    I love the Prairie Fire pattern and really look forward to knitting it at some point. Even better in Rainbow Heirloom yarn, thanks for the giveaway opportunity!

  128. Maddie October 2, 2014 at 8:21 pm #

    I love Clayoquot! Thanks for the chance to win.

  129. Alice October 2, 2014 at 8:27 pm #

    Tincan knits are such talented ladies. Would have to be Old Growth for me.

  130. Claire October 2, 2014 at 8:28 pm #

    I love Apple Pie. It looks so squishy. And I want a whole wardrobe in that Wicked Pacific colorway.

  131. Elizabeth October 2, 2014 at 8:46 pm #

    Touch picking a favorite, but I really love Viewfinder. These collections are my favorites!

  132. laurel October 2, 2014 at 9:15 pm #

    I LOVE old growth!

  133. Christina October 2, 2014 at 9:22 pm #

    Tough choice, but I’d have to go with the gorgeous Bonfire blanket.

  134. Melinda October 2, 2014 at 9:25 pm #

    it’s so hard to choose just one favourite, so I’ll tell you my favourite accessory is viewfinder and my favourite pullover is prairie fire.

  135. Melinda October 2, 2014 at 9:36 pm #

    I also have retweeted and shared this post on Facebook. Thanks!

  136. Isa October 2, 2014 at 10:02 pm #

    I’ve tested for some designs in this book, so I already am familiar with the beautiful work of Tin Can Knits. One of my favourites is the old growth cardigan

  137. Katie Lynn October 2, 2014 at 10:24 pm #

    I think my favorite has to be Old Growth. I really love the asymmetrical closure, and the wee little lace tree.

  138. Judy October 2, 2014 at 11:52 pm #

    I love all the patterns in Road Trip and have already purchased a copy, but I think my favourite pattern is Rivulet.

  139. Karen October 3, 2014 at 12:01 am #

    I love Clayoquot the best, but they are all things that I could see myself making. Love the size range- one day I will make one if these cardigans for my daughters, granddaughters, and me! I’d have the whole set!

  140. Joanne October 3, 2014 at 12:03 am #

    Absolutely love, love, love Caribou!

  141. Tanya October 3, 2014 at 12:49 am #

    I am loving all of the patterns, but the one I can’t wait to cast on for is the viewfinder. The bonfire is a very close second.

  142. Lisa S October 3, 2014 at 1:27 am #

    I love tin can knits patterns! I’ve been looking for a blanket pattern and Bonfire fits the bill perfectly! I need a nice snuggly blanket to cover my lap as I need late into the evenings. I’ll definitely be purchasing this pattern.

  143. Lisa Selph October 3, 2014 at 1:42 am #

    So hard to choose, but I think old growth is my favorite! Love all of them though!

  144. yarnpiggy October 3, 2014 at 2:00 am #

    So many lovelies to choose from, as you’d expect from a Tin Can Knits collection. Hard to choose just one, but I think Grayling would probably be the first one I’d knit for myself, and Prairie Fire for my nieces.

  145. Danielle October 3, 2014 at 2:31 am #

    I love the Clayoquot sweater, both child and adult sizes. Love your yarn also!

  146. Lia October 3, 2014 at 3:31 am #

    Absolutely love Prairie Fire, lace and stockinette is great for a fall/spring. Would love it in a red or burnt orange.

  147. Estelle October 3, 2014 at 4:04 am #

    Such a lovely collection of designs. Prairie Fire is just begging me to knit it !

  148. Sally B October 3, 2014 at 4:05 am #

    Terrific patterns…would love to try the Clayoquot Toque first! :D Thanks for a chance.

  149. Linda (elleyarn on Ravelry) October 3, 2014 at 4:09 am #

    I love the Clayoquot cardigan! Just beautiful. Thanks for offering this gift : -)

  150. Melissa October 3, 2014 at 4:12 am #

    I’m in love with the Bonfire Blanket! Looks perfect for snuggling by the fire with a special someone <3

  151. Linda (elleyarn on Ravelry) October 3, 2014 at 4:15 am #

    I just sent out a “like” on Facebook : -)

  152. Oly M October 3, 2014 at 4:26 am #

    I love the Clayoquot sweater! I think the whole collection is wonderful!

  153. Maya Sonenberg October 3, 2014 at 6:26 am #

    Love the Clayoquot cardigan, such a lovely combination of traditional colorwork and completely contemporary design.

  154. Maisie October 3, 2014 at 6:42 am #

    Love all of the patterns. Would like to make the Viewfinder cowl but will probably need the Apple Pie hat sooner with fall and winter approaching. Thank you :-)

  155. Dee H October 3, 2014 at 7:25 am #

    Love the patterns in ‘Road Trip’, I had a look at the book at Yarndale last week. I would choose the Caribou cardigan first, love the fact that it has all ages and is suitable for boys and girls!

  156. Julia October 3, 2014 at 9:21 am #

    Great patterns in this book. My favourite is the Caribou cardigan. Thank you for a chance to win the yarn and book

  157. Steff Hayward October 3, 2014 at 10:44 am #

    I think prairie fire is my favourite for my 3 dd’s & myself :)

  158. Carolyn Kohl October 3, 2014 at 10:47 am #

    Clayoquot is crazy gorgeous!

  159. elflyn October 3, 2014 at 10:51 am #

    Crushing on Caribou….. so lovely!

  160. Hope October 3, 2014 at 10:58 am #

    It’s a toss-up for me between Prairie Fire and Old Growth. They’re both elegant in their own ways and very, very wearable. Thank you for this opportunity!

  161. Corinne October 3, 2014 at 11:00 am #

    What a very tough choice! I love all of the patterns. The first one I am going to knit is Paddle, because that will be a quick knit. I was so impressed from the book that when I looked at the photos I had to book our summer holidays, so we will fly from Switzerland to Vancouver and follow the road trip.

  162. [email protected] October 3, 2014 at 11:00 am #

    My favourite pattern has to be the Rivulet shawl. I love a good tassel, especially on a shawl!

  163. Lauren October 3, 2014 at 11:01 am #

    Love, love, love the Old Growth Cardi!

  164. Alexandra SEBASTIEN October 3, 2014 at 11:27 am #

    I just love prairie fire! I’m seriously thinking about casting it on soon :)

  165. Michelle Chua October 3, 2014 at 11:27 am #

    Grrrrrrrgh (in a nice, frustrating way)…they are all so good. I am into knitting for Mother/child sets, so this new Road Trip book thrills me to bits. However, for this time, I will have to vote for BONFIRE. Not for myself, but for my daughter, who had absent mindedly mentioned that it would be nice if she has a cable throw. I missed her very much as she has gone out flatting, so I think knitting this throw would be good therapy for me. Road Trip will keep me busy with many happy knits for sure.

  166. Alexandra SEBASTIEN October 3, 2014 at 11:31 am #

    And I just shared on FB with my knitting friends :)

  167. Julie T. October 3, 2014 at 11:51 am #

    I totally love the Clayquot!!! What a fun giveaway and podcast! Thanks!

  168. heather October 3, 2014 at 11:52 am #

    It is too difficult to pick just one.The Clayoquot cardi is wonderful, however I like Old Growth also.

  169. Grace S. October 3, 2014 at 11:57 am #

    I would love to knit their Clayoquot cardigan. It’s beautiful!

  170. Gwendolyn October 3, 2014 at 11:58 am #

    I’m very much in love with the Prairie Fire sweater, I’m roughly planning on casting it on as soon as I finish my current Tin Can Knits sweater! (Harvest) I’d very much love to win the signed copy of the book from these two awesome designers.

  171. Fiona October 3, 2014 at 12:07 pm #

    I love the clean lines of Old Growth and would like to knit it in a deep shade of orangey-red, just right for autumn.

  172. Sarah Sales October 3, 2014 at 12:24 pm #

    What a tough decision. I have to say that Old Growth is my favorite. Such amazing design talent! Can’t wait for my copy to arrive in the mail! Shared on facebook.

  173. Lindsey October 3, 2014 at 12:27 pm #

    All of them are lovely but clayoquit is my favorite

  174. alina October 3, 2014 at 12:28 pm #

    I love their new book! If I had to choose just one design, it would have to be the Old Growth cardigan

  175. Sheryl October 3, 2014 at 12:30 pm #

    I love tin can knits, so effortlessly stylish. The Old Growth cardi looks very wearable.

  178. Jane October 3, 2014 at 12:43 pm #

    I pre-ordered Road Trip because of Grayling. Tin Can Knits always has the best patterns! I hope I win so I can try this yummy yarn!

  179. Roberta October 3, 2014 at 12:46 pm #

    Prairie fire is very lovely and elegant! However, I find it difficult to choose from so many wonderful patterns!

  180. Jessica October 3, 2014 at 12:48 pm #

    I love, love, love prairie fire and want to make it for my sweet daughter.

  181. Sonya October 3, 2014 at 12:56 pm #

    I love the Paddle mitts. I made a pair for my son and he wouldn’t take them off.

  182. Carol M October 3, 2014 at 1:02 pm #

    I am loving the cardigans, Old Growth and Clayoquot.

  183. Kristin October 3, 2014 at 1:03 pm #

    Hard to choose! Wenlock Pullover is my favorite ! Such a lovely collection !!!

  184. bellasocks October 3, 2014 at 1:11 pm #

    wow, this collection is amazing! I’d start with the Granola socks :)

  185. Lucy October 3, 2014 at 1:16 pm #

    i love them all, but my favorites would have to be Old Growth or Fireling.

  186. Lisa Ross October 3, 2014 at 1:21 pm #

    I LOVE the new book, especially Caribou. I ordered some BT yarn and started it yesterday.

  187. Meryl October 3, 2014 at 1:23 pm #

    that bonfire blanket–love it!

  188. Vanessa October 3, 2014 at 1:24 pm #

    Tough choice but I do really love Claquoyt

  189. Inma October 3, 2014 at 1:28 pm #

    My favourite is Old growth for sure! Beautiful!

  190. LoriAngela October 3, 2014 at 1:31 pm #

    I’d love to make a Clayquot cardi

  191. Leann October 3, 2014 at 1:32 pm #

    I love lots of the patterns in Roadtrip. I think Caribou is my favorite sweater, the neckline is so pretty. However I am not the most proficient sweater knitter. But I do love to knit hats – so I’m thinking an Apple Pie and a Stovetop will be on my Fall knitting list.

  192. Heather L October 3, 2014 at 1:33 pm #

    It’s a tough choice but clayoquot cardigan is my favourite.

  193. Sarah S. October 3, 2014 at 1:37 pm #

    I have to go with Prairie Fire. So many good items in this collection – I want to knit them all!

  194. Leanne October 3, 2014 at 1:37 pm #

    I am obsessed with the Clayoqute cardigan!!!

  195. Tara Garland October 3, 2014 at 1:41 pm #

  196. Heather Larson October 3, 2014 at 1:43 pm #

    I love ALL of Tin Can Knits patterns. From the new book Road Trip I would say the first thing I am making is the Old Growth cardi.

  197. Cicha October 3, 2014 at 1:47 pm #

  204. Shellyjc October 3, 2014 at 2:11 pm #

    I love Clayoquot cardi because it’s in fair isle and it conjures up fond memories of the west coast for me. My parents lived there for 32 years. It also connects to my Finnish roots. Tin Can Knits has great stuff!

  205. Aggie R. October 3, 2014 at 2:12 pm #

    I love that the Road Trip collection offers so many different knitwear designs: sweaters, hats, socks, etc.! My favorite design is Prairie Fire; it is so feminine; and I just love lace!

  206. Aline October 3, 2014 at 2:17 pm #

    Adore Tincanknits. Love the Prairie Fire but think I would choose the Old Growth so that me and the two kids can look seriously cute in matching cardies! Ta, Aline

  208. Norma Horan October 3, 2014 at 2:24 pm #

    I’ve already purchased the yarn to make Clayoquot., but am waiting until after Christmas to get it started so I can give it the full attention it deserves :-)

  209. Anna James October 3, 2014 at 2:24 pm #

    I would love to knit Apple Pie – it’s the perfect time of year for a wooly hat.

  210. Kathleen October 3, 2014 at 2:27 pm #

    the whole collection is impeccable, as usual, but I will be knitting the old growth cardigan! love!

  211. Anna R. October 3, 2014 at 2:31 pm #

    I love the designs, and it’s so difficult to choose a favourite! I think Old Growth just pips it for me Lovely!

  212. Layla October 3, 2014 at 2:33 pm #

    All of the patterns are gorgeous. It’s a tough call between Stovetop and Granola, but I think Granola may just have the edge though for me.

  213. Cindy M October 3, 2014 at 2:40 pm #

    Having a hard time picking just one pattern! We are on a Game of Thrones infatuation at the present time so I can see Rivulet in dark gray, or the Grayling, or the Praire Fire… they are all great patterns we ran!!

  214. Jessica October 3, 2014 at 2:44 pm #

    My fav is Apple Pie!!!

  215. Debra October 3, 2014 at 2:44 pm #

    I love TinCan Knits, I think of this collection my favourites would be Old Growth Cardigan and the Prairie Fire pullover.

  216. Heidi G October 3, 2014 at 2:45 pm #

    I’m in love with the Clayoquot sweater. I might dip my toes in with the hat first though! :)

  217. Natalie October 3, 2014 at 2:49 pm #

    The whole collection is very appealing. If I had to knit something tomorrow, I’d probably make Prairie Fire for my daughter.

  218. Dannielle October 3, 2014 at 2:59 pm #

    I am so in love with this book. The Old Growth sweater has to be my favourite.

  219. Lauri October 3, 2014 at 3:00 pm #

    All the patterns are delicious. Having to choose just one is hard. I think my favourite sweater is the Clayoquot, but I would love to wrap myself up in the Bonfire.

  220. Dominique October 3, 2014 at 3:16 pm #

    The Old Growth sweater is very pretty!

  221. Rachel October 3, 2014 at 3:18 pm #

    Prairie Fire is an absolutely amazing design! That red is a gorgeous complement to the pattern.

  222. Nikki H October 3, 2014 at 3:18 pm #

    It’s SO HARD to pick just one, they’re all lovely! I think if I had to, it would be Old Growth. It’s such a beautiful sweater.

    I absolutely love Tin Can Knits!! This new pattern book is fabulous! I think Old Growth is my favorite, but it’s hard to choose and I want to make everything.

  234. Louise Prosser October 3, 2014 at 4:09 pm #

    It’s a hard choice, but I think my favourite is the Old Growth Cardigan.

  235. Liga October 3, 2014 at 4:14 pm #

    I think Ammolite is GORGEOUS and that Viewfinder might be a good first foray into using laceweight.

  236. Sam Madrus October 3, 2014 at 4:14 pm #

    I remember when Alexa was swatching for Old Growth. I knew there would be a tree, but she was totally tight lipped about what she was doing. From that moment, I was hooked on it. As soon as this was released, I am now OVER THE MOON in love with Old Growth. The ability to knit it up in Rainbow Heirloom yarn would be a real treat indeed!

    Old Growth. Hard to chose! I live on the North Shore Mountains, probably where some of those photos were taken. We walk and ride the trails. I love being in the forest with all the colours. Dreamy. For that reason Old Growth.

  250. Morag October 3, 2014 at 4:41 pm #

    I love that Tin Can always publishes their patterns so you can size them up or down. I ADORE the Clayoquot sweater from this collection and, if my four-month-old let me have any time to knit, I would be hard at work on matching ones for her and me!

  251. Sheila October 3, 2014 at 4:44 pm #

    If I had to choose just one pattern, it would have to be Clayoquot Cardigan with Old Growth a close second, thanks for the giveaway

  257. mel October 3, 2014 at 5:32 pm #

    I like a lot of the patterns in roadtrip, but I think the first I would knit would be the granola socks, love them!

  258. Gaile October 3, 2014 at 5:33 pm #

    Definitely the Clayoquot designs (toque AND cardigans). All the patterns are beautiful and if I had more time or was a faster knitter I would knit everything, but I plan on knitting the Clayoquot toque first before moving on to the sweater. This is a lovely giveaway.

  259. gail October 3, 2014 at 5:38 pm #

    Its a toss up between old growth and bonfire! Thanks for the contest!

  260. Carmen October 3, 2014 at 5:42 pm #

    I would love to make an Old Growth for my daughter and granddaughter. I made an Antler and it was a great knit!

  261. Mandy M. October 3, 2014 at 5:47 pm #

    I love them all, but Old Growth is my first choice.

  262. Elizabeth Sames October 3, 2014 at 5:50 pm #

    My favorite pattern from this book is Old Growth (so elegant yet so versatile) but I have a feeling I’m going to be knitting several from this book. If by some glorious chance I should win the book, I will give it to my knitting niece because I can’t wait until the end of the contest to get my own hands on the book. Love it!

  263. Marie Mtl October 3, 2014 at 5:54 pm #

    I simply adore TCK’s patterns! I would knit the Old growth sweater, one for me, and another for my little one.

  264. Laurie October 3, 2014 at 5:56 pm #

    i love the Clayaquot sweater, beautiful design and my favorite stranded knitting too!

  265. Kassie M October 3, 2014 at 6:05 pm #

    Clayoquot is by far my favorite! I’m swatching with my yarn choice today!

  266. Roberta Beck October 3, 2014 at 6:06 pm #

    I love anything asymmetric and so it is Old Growth all the way. See you at Knit City!

  267. Kate October 3, 2014 at 6:11 pm #

    I love Old Growth, but my husband has already requested the Paddle Mitts so I’ll be knitting them first :)

    I love the Clayoquot Sweater, as I’m already on a colorwork sweater binge! It’s gorgeous! I also really love the Rivulet Shawl.

  269. Kynna October 3, 2014 at 6:38 pm #

    There are so many amazing designs, it’s hard to pick one! But I am definitely in love with the Clayoquot cardi and old growth cardigan :)

    I also just shared this link on facebook :)

  271. Emily S October 3, 2014 at 6:49 pm #

    Love all of them as usual…but if I had to pick one, I really like the Bonfire Blanket. I like the simplicity of the garter with the beautiful inset cable. Simple yet graphic.

    My favourite in this collection is Old Growth. A very “real life” design!

  280. Michelle Iseman October 3, 2014 at 8:04 pm #

    I really like the socks Granola, but a tight runner up is the Old Growth sweater. I absolutely love your designs which are perfect for any family, shape, and size. Keep up the great work!

  281. Mackenzie/artmajorese October 3, 2014 at 8:11 pm #

    Clayoquot is definitely my favorite – even though it is the hardest to spell!

  282. Joy October 3, 2014 at 8:12 pm #

    I have to say I love them all but if left to choose one favorite I would say its a toss up between Prairie Fire and Old Growth!!

  283. Anna October 3, 2014 at 8:29 pm #

    So hard to choose a favourite!
    I think I will pick Prairie Fire, as it would make a pretty holiday sweater.

  284. Shannon Klement October 3, 2014 at 9:19 pm #

    I’m very excited to start the “Old Growth” cardigan! Maybe I’ll win the yarn so I can get started!!

  285. Meghan October 3, 2014 at 9:33 pm #

    i love the Clayoquat. All of the patterns are gorgeous though.

  286. Maria October 3, 2014 at 9:52 pm #

    I love Clayoquot Toque beanies for daddy and son. So sweet!
    A pleasure sharing it on my facebbook: the OPEN studio 79.
    Great Road Trip pattern collection. They are all awesome!

  290. Kathy October 3, 2014 at 11:41 pm #

    I have knit, so far, the Clayoquot Toque for a baby but I plan to knit a larger size next so this pattern in my favorite at the moment. I can see many other projects in the future but at the moment life if so busy that I only have time for hats.

  291. Nadine October 3, 2014 at 11:55 pm #

    I’ve been drooling over fairisle patterns lately – Clayoquot is my absolute favourite, but I’d happily knit all of the Roadtrip patterns!

  292. Christie October 4, 2014 at 12:17 am #

    I love the Old Growth cardigan. I would love to knit this, especially in the old pub in London!

  296. Marlene October 4, 2014 at 3:59 am #

    It’s hard to pick a favourite…..Old Growth and Prairie Fire are pretty much even. Thanks for the chance to win.

  297. lola October 4, 2014 at 4:38 am #

    I would love to make Old Growth! (actually i would love to make a sweater, period.) But Old Growth!

  302. melody October 4, 2014 at 6:41 am #

    Thank you for the wonderful opportunity! I love so many designs from this collection. But the praire fire & the caribou sweaters are on the top of my list.

  303. Sakti October 4, 2014 at 7:48 am #

    I talk about your designs about every day!!!

  308. Vivienne October 4, 2014 at 9:57 am #

    I would knit the granola socks, the beautiful lace pattern reminds me of ears of wheat. I would wear them while trying to not think about my one attempt at making home made granola. Not a success…let’s hope the socks turn out better!

  309. sandra October 4, 2014 at 10:10 am #

    I’d love to knit the clayoquot card!

  310. Kat October 4, 2014 at 10:48 am #

    All beautiful patterns, but I love the Bonfire Blanket, perfect for colder evenings. The colours of Rainbow Heirloom are gorgeous too.

  311. Marie C October 4, 2014 at 12:45 pm #

    The Grayling mittens are superb.
    What a great team!

  316. Josee Labrie October 4, 2014 at 2:44 pm #

  317. Concetta October 4, 2014 at 6:56 pm #

    I am also a huge fan of the Clayoquot cardigan! I’m also intrigued by the TKK girls new yarn, and well, I love all their work in general.

    This was the first time I’ve listened to your podcast and it was great! I’m going to definitely catch more episodes.

  318. Bordergirl October 4, 2014 at 8:02 pm #

    Road Trip – my two favorite words! Another beautiful collection from Tin Can Knits. My favorite is Bonfire to snuggle under around a campfire. Thanks for the great giveaway.

  319. Sarah October 4, 2014 at 9:48 pm #

    I like all the patterns very much! but most especially the STOVETOP hat :)

  320. Modern Fibre October 4, 2014 at 10:55 pm #

    So many great choices in this new collection! The Old Growth cardigan is my first pick. Super exciting give-away. Thanks!

  321. Jade October 5, 2014 at 1:19 am #

    What a great collection of patterns, but would really love to knit Old Growth first.

  322. Kadi October 5, 2014 at 1:21 am #

    Old Growth sweater is spectacular! Love Tin Can Knits!

  323. Trina-Lea Briggs October 5, 2014 at 2:57 am #

    After getting to view and feel the entire Road Trip collection today at Knit City, Vancouver, BC., I am in love with all of the patterns! I have big aspirations to knit the entire collection with the Grayling Mittens being the first on the list. Thank you

  324. Manuela October 5, 2014 at 3:28 am #

    Hard to choose, but my favourite pattern would be the Old Growth cardigan.

  325. Janice October 5, 2014 at 3:54 am #

    The Clayoquot Cardi is my favorite! I loved the tutorial on different coloways for the pattern and would definitely try them out on the hat, as suggested.

  326. [email protected] October 5, 2014 at 5:13 am #

    Old Growth is the pattern that immediately drew me to Road Trip and my favourite colourway is Lemon Pie for sure :)

  327. Angie October 5, 2014 at 7:56 am #

    They are all lovely, but I really really like the APPLE PIE hat; and the ‘koala haircut’ colour way is singing to me! What a super giveaway! Sorry, but I don’t do Facebook or twittering.

  328. Susan October 5, 2014 at 8:44 am #

    Tough to choose my favorite design, but I think I’d make Prairie Fire first and it would look so awesome in the Deep Teal colourway. Thanks for such a great giveaway and the opportunity to win this and I really hope I win!

  331. Rachel October 5, 2014 at 10:20 am #

    With 20 seconds of seeing a tweet by tin can knits I’d clicked to find the competition. Really planning for a clayoquot (as a jumper) AND the beautiful prairie fire to be in my life. Too good to share.

  332. Alison October 5, 2014 at 11:13 am #

    love love LOVE Bonfire. TinCanKnits got me making the most beautiful lace shawl, always such well written patterns!

  333. Talvi October 5, 2014 at 1:03 pm #

    I love Caribou and Old Growth, they’re really pretty cardigans. I knitted Lush (also by tincanknits) this summer and loved it — Caribou looks pretty similar!

  334. Heather de G October 5, 2014 at 1:08 pm #

    I’ve fallen in love with the Apple Pie hat! It will be the first thing from Roadside that I will knit, but I suspect most of the book will be on my needles soon. I love practical and beautiful items for my children, and maybe there will be an adult size for me of Oldgrowth.

  342. Robin October 5, 2014 at 3:32 pm #

    If I have to choose a favorite, it’s Prairie Fire. Thanks for an opportunity to win the book! :)

  351. Jana October 6, 2014 at 4:03 am #

    My newest JOY is stranded colour work so, as difficult as it is to choose one favourite pattern, I’d have to settle on Clayoquot. One day I hope to travel into that region of our wild and wonderful west coast. Thanks for another book of great inspiration!
