The Stella Collection Giveaway!

Hi Knitters,
I told you I'd be back with another fun giveaway and here it is!

First off, the winner of the Adorn Anew ebook is, czcestaro (rav id)! Congratulations! Thanks to everyone for entering.

Today, I am reviewing and offering you a chance to win something a little different, a sweet lace collection. The pattern collection includes four patterns for two shawls, a scarf and a cowl. The designs just get prettier and prettier. The Stella Collection is an ebook put together by two stellar stars in the knitting world, Julie Crawford of Knitted Bliss, and Tanis Lavallee of Tanis Fiber Arts yarn.

These are two creative designers. They both have a very elegant but wearable design aesthetic so it is great to see them combining their talents.

The collection has both written and charted lace patterns for your convenience. There are gorgeous photographs of each design from several angles. I think it is all a stunning presentation.

Here is the description of the collection straight from the designers:
A collection of four shawl designs, each featuring a different Tanis Fiber Arts fingering weight yarn base. The shawls are all unique, like each star in the sky. Stella is Latin for ‘star’, two shawls are inspired by stars in constellations, and two are inspired by the biggest star of all - the sun!

I have been longing to try the Tanis Fiber Arts yarn, it looks incredible and always gets fantastic reviews. This yarn is on my "must try" list.

Above is my favorite design in the collection. I think this looks like so much fun to knit. I love the garter stitch body of the shawl with the rhythmic lace along the edge. Lovely.

Julie and Tanis have generously offered a copy of their ebook, The Stella Collection, to one lucky winner. I am so excited for someone to have the opportunity to knit up some gorgeous lace this fall. If you would like to win this beautiful book of patterns, please leave one comment on this post. Please leave your email address or Ravelry id so we can send you the ebook if you win.

Good luck, Knitters. This is one you don't want to miss. I'll be back in a couple of quick days with a randomly selected winner. I have one more review and giveaway up my sleeve coming up next week.

Let the comments begin!
best, susie
