Things We Love - #12

Top Left: "Twisp" by Emily Wessel of Tin Can Knits (@tincanknits on Ravelry and Instagram); photo by Andi Satterlund - Despite being 90 degrees with what feels like 90 percent humidity today, it's never too early to start thinking about cold weather knits!  This charming hat pattern from one half of the Tin Can Knits design team can be found in the newest issue of Stranded Magazine, a beautiful new online publication that has Anneliese head over heels in love.  We're picturing making the Twisp hat with Lux Adorna cashmere minis or Swan's Island All American Sport for a luxurious fall accessory!

Bottom: Strelitzia palette; photo by Anneliese Thomason - The strelitzia, or Bird of Paradise flower, was something that Anneliese assumed Pier 1 Imports made up for their fake floral department until she went to the Biltmore Estate greenhouse and found one in person.  This would make a great color scheme for the Twisp hat!
