Review & Giveaway #3


Today I want to show you Shannon Cook’s brand new pattern, the Stasia Cowl.


It’s an absolutely unique cowl with a great design. It’s knit up using a Worsted Weight yarn, and I have some leftover Dream in Color Classy in my stash that this cowl would look fabulous in. I definitely plan to knit up one of these as well, but only after I finish some stuff on needles and getting on those teacher Christmas gifts that I need to get cracking on. (I promised myself that starting November, I’d dedicate the month to the teachers gifts, for as long as I need to, to get them done – more about that in another blog post though).


Shannon (isn’t she gorgeous in the above photo, I absolutely lover her blue eyes!) has generously offered to give one my readers a copy of her new pattern (released only yesterday!) Be sure to enter to win! Here’s how:

1 – Leave a comment on this blog and let me know what yarn you think you’d knit this up in(with an email address if it’s not attached to your profile)
And for additional entries:
2 – Like Shannon’s Facebook page and come back & leave me a comment to tell me you have done so.
3 – Subscribe to Shannon’s blog & leave me a comment to tell me you have done so.
4 – Blog about the contest, Tweet about the contest, and come back and give me the link to your blog post/tweet. 
5 – Come LIKE my Facebook page for an extra entry and then come back and let me know you're a new fan.

I will keep this contest open until Wednesday, Nov 7th, at 11:59 PM, EST. I will draw a winner for the pattern on November 8th, 2012 and announce it on my blog. GOOD LUCK!

There is this color purple in malabrigo worsted that I've had my eye on at the LYS. This cowl would ROCK in that color. Ooooh man, I have got to get this commissioned knit finished so I can knit for myself again!

The cowl looks like an interesting knit in something squishy like malabrigo or something extra warm like alpaca!

I've got some Handmaiden silk/cashmere that is screaming for a good cowl pattern...

I love this!
I think I would knit this up in Berroco Vintage... it's soft and cozy and feels fantastic next to the sensitive skin on the neck and face!

I think I'd like to try the recommended yarn, which would be a first for me, lol! Especially as she has a ten percent off coupon code on her blog for the Spincycle yarn!

Misti Alpaca would be so soft for this cowl...Malabrigo is a great choice, too.

I have a huge stash of Briar Rose Yarn, and would probably use one of those.
Also, I did 'like' both yours and Shannons fb page.
