Love Note KAL

Did you know that today, September 26, 2020 is International Love Note Day? Read about this sweet unofficial holiday HERE

The art of handwritten expressions of love seem to be a distant memory for many of us in this modern technology world, but a knitted version can be a reminder to show yourself or someone else some love. A love note does not have to be a romantic gesture, but a kindness gesture. The dynamic duo from Tin Can Knits knows that a love note can be expressed not only with the hands for writing, but with the hands using needles and yarn. In May 2019, they released the design for this beautiful billowy top. Sizes available from newborn to 5X. Knit one for yourself, knit one for a friend,

Join me online with Zoom for a Love Note KAL. Tin Can Knits brings to life this sweet little sweater that knits up quickly from the top down. The combination of mohair lace and sock weight merino creates a fabric that is floaty, soft and sensual. With a high-low hemline and two length options, what’s not to love?
