Recently, two of my very favorite knitters in blogland -- Tanis of Tanis Fiber Arts and Julie of Knitted Bliss -- put their uber-talented design-minds together and published The Stella Collection. And OH MY is it lovely.
Each shawl in the collection was inspired by a star (Stella being Latin for 'star') and each features a different Tanis Fiber Arts fingering weight yarn base. Perfect yarn, lacey shawls, Latin, and astronomy? This is so up my alley.
Now on to the prettiness...
Adhara - a lovely two-color, lacey, triangular shawl
And because I love wearing a shawl around my neck like a scarf, here's a shot of it worn that way, too:
Suncrest - cushy garter stitch goodness and pretty scallops
And just look how it scrunches. YUM.
Solaria - lots of texture, and lace, and oh! that color!
It can be worn as a capelet, too, which I love. (And don't you also love how Julie's styled it??)
Nashira - a gorgeous lightweight stole that would go with everything!
All of the patterns can be purchased individually (just click the linkies above) for C$6, or you can get the whole shebang for C$15.
OR, if you leave a comment here telling me which design is your favorite, you may just be the lucky person drawn to receive a free copy of the collection! You have until next Monday, July 30th at noon Pacific time -- I'll draw a winner and make the announcement that afternoon. So let's hear it! Which starry shawl would you make first?
