a little while back, my friend tanis lavallée of tanis fiber arts, got in touch to let me know about a new collaborative collection she has created with fellow designer julie crawford of knitted bliss.
the stella collection is an eBook which includes four lace accessory patterns, two created by tanis and two created by julie.
each piece is quite different from the next, so the collection has a variety of styles and shapes as well as skill level—something for everyone and a true reflection of each designer as well.
the pieces take advantage of the variety of gorgeous yarns offered by tanis fiber arts—each design features one of the fingering weight bases that tanis dyes on.
the patterns feature both written and charted instructions, which i know many of us appreciate!
now here’s the part that i think you’re going to love—tanis has provided a giveaway kit for one lucky reader of today’s post, consisting of the stella collection eBook plus one skein of her red label cashmere silk single in the velvet colorway
i can personally vouch for the luxuriousness of this yarn; i have a little iris shawlette on the needles right now in the chestnut colorway, which i’m dawdling over because it’s such a treat to work with.
if you’d like to throw your name into the pot to win this coveted kit, please leave a comment at the end of this post by 9 pm EDST on wednesday, august 8th. we’ll draw a name and announce the winner shortly thereafter.
and for a further treat, please read on into the next post; mister knitspot has stopped by to say a word or two about our luscious fall in full color yarn club, just about to begin shipping; it’s not too late to join us!
