Road Trip by Tin Can Knits

great collection to get you inspired for those summer road trips. I know I'll be making this car blanket for my '62 Ford Ranchero!

Our new book 'Road Trip' is inspired our adventures across Canada; winding roads through mountain passes, coffee in quaint towns, and bonfires on remote beaches. With cables, colourwork and lace, Road Trip is full of delicious designs.

A Man’s Guide to the Scarf: How and Why to Wear One, and 7 Ways to Tie Yours

It seems basic, but knitting a man's scarf can be a surprisingly challenging undertaking. Knitting pattern websites rarely have a standard in size and shape, but there actually are some basic and classic industry guidelines that can help you pick and design the perfect scarf for that dapper fella. Once you decide on the right width and length as determined by how an individual likes to wear their neckwear, you'll be more confident and creative in your color and design choices. Happy Holidays!

Most men’s scarves are approximately 10 inches wide, 70 inches long, and made from either a solid or patterned cut of cloth designed to wrap around the ne

A sweater I knitted recently. Intarsia 'Morrissey' pattern will be available shortly.

"Fans of the brooding, mysterious, non-meat-eating English singer-lyricist Morrissey recently packed the Tilles Center for the Performing Arts at LIU Post in Brookville for his first-ever Long Island appearance. They included bearded New Jersey Mercedes-Benz mechanic Christopher Flynn, who stood out in a hand-knit sweater — made by his girlfriend, Corinna Mantlo, as a Christmas present — paying homage to the former Smiths front man."

B&Y in the press

This is the year you learn to knit. YouTube and the blogosphere beckon with the craftier-than-thou DIY sect, but spending your nights at a computer defeats the idea of learning a new skill entirely. But there’s hope. Leave it to New York City to take your Grandma’s hobby and turn it on its head.

The general theme for all the artists participating with this project being the daffodil, the subject was already set up for me. I focused on highlighting the features of the flower by giving them sparkle and texture through the combination of beading and knitting. The beading is an integral

This year, my inspiration comes from an abundance of foam left over from another project, and a deep and demented love of animated cartoons and science fiction “B” films. Think Sam Rami, Little Shop of Horrors (the 1960 version and the 1986 version), and The Young Ones…On March 20th, Look for my vi

Reposting a piece about long time Booze & Yarner Stacy Pershall. Cool chick, crazy knitter and recently published author. Check out the book, and hope she inspires you to knit a gift for someone in need. You rock Stacy!

I first met Stacy at Booze & Yarn a few years back. She inspired me and cracked me up the minute we met, and we quickly become good friends. She has a huge heart and this winter she came up with a humble little project that proves that yet again, and I just love it. I hope this project inspires you
