Stella Collection Giveaway

What happens when you combine the talents of this blog:



With the talents behind this one:



Along with some gorgeous yarn, and a little inspirations from the stars?  

An amazing new pattern collection, of course!


Today I am delighted to share this beautiful pattern collection with all you knitters out there- here comes the eye candy:

















Each of these patterns features a different Tanis Fiber Arts fingering weight yarn (my favorite weight to work with, btw).  You can drool over the whole collections of Tanis' yarns here.

The Stella Collection is available on Ravelry as a pdf ebook for $15.00 CAD.  You can also find each pattern available for $6.00 CAD a piece.

Now the title of this post does say giveaway, so that's just what we'll do.  I have an entire ebook to share with one lucky reader.  What do you have to do?  Just leave a comment below sharing what design you would cast on first (I think Suncrest is calling my name!). 

The giveaway will close on Monday, July 23, 2012 at 11:59 pm EST.  Winner to be announced shortly after.

Annnnnnnd..... GO!

  55. I love, love, love Alhara! Thanks so much for such an awesome contest.

    ReplyDelete
  56. I keep looking at Adhara and trying to decide what color combination to use as I have a nice stash of Tanis Purple Label from which to choose. Of course, winning the patterns would be lovely as I want to knit them all!
    Thanks.

    ReplyDelete
  144. Nashira is whispering me, saying, "No you don't need to cast on this other shawl first. You know you want to work on me instead." ;)

    ReplyDelete
  145. I love them all, but Adhara and Suncrest are vying for lead position in my list.

    ReplyDelete
