What happens when you combine colorful stripes with an interesting and ingenious shawl construction?! You blow knitters' minds with all the possibilities. That's what!

I'm sure that most of you can guess which shawl pattern I might be referring to with just the words stripes and ingenious construction. It's the Stripe Study Shawl by Veera Valimaki. This shawl pattern and I have somewhat of a love story...

I saw this beauty the day it came live on Ravelry. Now, I'd been following Veera and her designs up until this point and really liked most, if not all of her beautiful and contemporary sweater patterns. I actually had a majority of them marked as favorites already! But, that one lovely day in February, I fell head over heels for the Stripe Study. I stalked this shawl everyday (OK lets be honest here, everyday, ALL DAY!). I was enchanted by all the lovely projects going up and how quickly they were all coming in.

So started the long delibiration period! I was so obsessed with getting this thing perfect, I second guessed all the color combos I was coming up with. What yarn?! Which colors?! How do I want the colors to flow?! Light or dark color for the main color?! And, oh my goodness, I didn't want to copy anybody else's color choices! My friends, I spent countless hours contemplating what to do. I'd never had this happen to me before. This wasn't my first striped shawl!

Finally, I just had to step away! (Veronika, put the mouse down and walk away from the computer.) I probably could have knit a couple of sweaters with the amount of time I was spending browsing through yarns and projects. Once I gave up the fight of trying to find the perfect two colors, the choice became clear and I purchased my yarn.

Unfortunately, life has gotten in the way and I have been unable to finish my shawl to photograph in time and share with you today, so I'm going to torture you a bit and share my choice of yarn and colors a little later. With that being said, I also have the unfortunate news that this giveaway's sponsor fell through as well, but life is funny like that sometimes. So, when it gives me lemons, I always try and make a lemon drop martini out of it (kidding)!

I have for you today two skeins of some beautiful unclaimed yarns from previous giveaways. And, guess what! They're almost the same colors that Veera herself used in her original shawl. Remember…


Miss Babs's Yummy Sport & Sock yarn

GA57yarn


And, Anzula's Squishy

anzula


These two yarns are so lovely and they go perfectly together! It's yarn, pattern, and giveaway fate here folks. One lucky Grand Prize winner will receive the two skeins of "unloved" yarn and a PDF copy of the Stripe Study Shawl. Three additional Runners Up will also receive a PDF copy of the pattern.


I would like you to do the following if you would like to be entered into this week's giveaway:


1. Read over the rules if you have not done so already.

2. Leave a comment on this blog post by the end of Sunday, 8/14/11. What's your favorite Veera Valimaki pattern? Check out her cool blog here or Rav patterns page here and report back. I'm pretty sure I'm off to go stalk this one next!



I'll randomly pick the winners in 2 weeks and post the results along with the new giveaway, so be sure to check back. Good luck everyone.

Sincerely,

Ve

sacha said...

I love that shawl most, but also have looked longingly at many other patterns- Hay Cardi... I love Anzula- I will have my fingers double crossed for two weeks with sugar on top!

Katie said...

Oh my, It is so hard to choose a favorite... I love the Crisp and Gray Vest, but I am having an affair with Summer Plum. How scandalous!

TopHat said...

I love the hay cardigan! And those colors are gorgeous!

Jodi said...

Modern Garden is so pretty! What a great giveaway.

BrittanyLaine said...

I love the plain and simple pullover- it was actually already in my queue! And I love love love grey and red together!

Zabbers said...

Ohhh that's really really hard. I think my favorite is Turmeric. I have some Dream in Color Starry in Grey Tabby lined up to make it.

20 Purls said...

I like the study shawl and the different lines study as a close seconds. I'm anxious to try some Miss Babs. Wishing for my name in the winners' post.

Kathy said...

I honestly love so many of Veera's patterns! I already knit the Stripe Study Shawl (for my mom, so now I need one) and next up is the Golden Wheat cardigan. So many more are in my faves - she is an awesome designer!

Charlotte said...

oh .. how to choose. Something for me? Golden Wheat Cardigan

or somethign for the kids?? Purjehtijan pusero

nina said...

Wow, tough choice! I'll say the Hay Cardigan - it looks so versatile...

Krista said...

Gorgeous! I also like "Summer Plum"

katherinelynn_04 said...

I love stripe study too! I knit it twice...in one month. Those colors are gorgeous!!
katherinelynn04 on rav

meppybn said...

So hard to choose - probably Turmeric :) the study shawl would be a lovely addition to my wardrobe though!!

Gianna said...

I LOVE the "Folded" sweater!

brandyivy said...

lovely! yummy colors too! :)

old dog said...

I like the Different Lines shawl and the Hooray Cardigan. Those colors are gorgeous.

affiknity said...

I have her Celery cardigan in my queue since ages. Seriously, what not to love in her patterns!

ohdessa said...

My favorite (probably because I just finished it and it turned out perfect) is the Golden Wheat Cardigan!

Rhian Drinkwater said...

Tough choice, but probably the Magnanimity Cardigan – I feel like I'm always on the search for the perfect cardi!

Marlitharn said...

That shawl is sheer awesome. I also like "Paris" (in the springtime...)- I'm a sucker for casual cardis.

Vanessa said...

I like the Honey cardigan, which was already in my favorites.

Orli said...

I'm loving the Twenty Ten Cardigan, but the colors you're giving away for this shawl are fantastic. Sign me up!

Typstatting said...

I love the Blackcurrant Shawl! And a giveaway who doesn't love one!

wildkitten said...

I love Stripe Study Shawl! And some otherpatterns too :)

The Distracted Knitter said...

Wow, all the patterns have great components. I can't decide between the Summer Plum and the Hooray Cardigan. I'd love to do this shawl. Great colors and beautiful yarn.

Amal said...

Definitely the study shawl :D had the 'Plain and Simple Pullover' in my queue for quite a while now.
The colour combination of those two look great, and I haven't tried either yarns ;)

Amanda said...

Hard to narrow it down, honestly, but I love Hooray and Folded. Thanks for the awesome giveaway!

mmirandam said...

My favorite is still-light-tunic,
but it is such difficult choise because, most of Veera's sweaters are also in my favourites or queue :)
And qiveaway yarn is gorgeous, hope it will be my lucky day :)

ne-knopka said...

love Purjehtijan pusero
anna_k67 at yahoo dot com

Vaida said...

I love 3/4 hap shawl (started it on New Years day and it's still a WIP - shame on me).. and of course Stripe Study, and Still Light tunic, and... so difficult to choose only one

masshag said...

What beautiful yarn. I love the gray and red together. They will look so pretty in the stripe study shawl. I really like the Honey cardigan but I am all about the cardigan these days. I also really liked the different lines shawl too and the......"

marianne said...

I had just been ogling the gray Miss Babs yarn when going through some older posts! the idea of "unloved" yarn makes me sad--it's not unloved! I love it from afar!
there are so many lovely patterns that it's hard to pick just one, but the Magnanimity Cardi in particular caught my eye.
thanks for this giveaway!

Avila said...

Graystone is beautiful! The diagonal cable really stands out from the squish garter stitch and I love a big cowl neck!

evan said...

For me, I love them all. But my absolute favourites are a three way tie between Tumeric, Stripe Study Shawl, and Twenty Ten Cardigan. I just love her work!

Laura said...

Okay I have 2 favorite Veera patterns. I'm in love with the simplicity of her "plain and simple" sweater. The color of is just gray (which is my favorite color besides green)

I also like her turmeric. It is so chic looking. Beautiful yarn and projects.

Sylvie said...

I can't decide! I love that shawl and different lines is very striking, and most of the sweaters are super classy. The twenty ten cardigan is fantastically dramatic.

syd said...

I love Veera's pat teens so much! I have to say, the modern garden cardi particularly speaks to though....

Melamalie said...

I love the Honey Cardigan! That just went on my favourites list...

Stranded Things said...

I love Veera's patterns and those skeins are gorgeous! I'm especially dying to make Golden Wheat Cardigan one day.

Anonymous said...

I have been admiring the stripe study shawl for awhile. Thanks for a chance.
LynnIL ravelry

Robin said...

Oooh too many awesome patterns to decide on one! Different lines, Buckwheat, plain and simple pullover...

Marguerite said...

I went to her revelry page and was immediately struck by the Little Things hat. I think it's perfect for fall and I may knit it for every girl I know. :D I would keep the Stripe Study for myself, though.

Kristina said...

I like the Summer Plum. It is so cute!

Phyllis said...

I think I like this shawl best of all her patterns, but the Summer Plum sweater is really nice, too.

Amanda U said...

I remember seeing that shawl when it popped up on Ravelry too! Very lovely! I would love to knit one up with unloved yarn!

Galia Lael said...

I have many of her patterns in my faves (and some in my queue). I'm almost done with my stripe study shawl, but I can think of many other beautiful projects for these two lovelies.

Teri said...

I can only pick one pattern? That makes the choice difficult, they are all so lovely. I think the Shade of Winter dress is gorgeous, simple and elegant all at once.

tmr714@hotmail.com

Jen said...

I have knit the Striped Study Shawl twice, but once I'm no longer pregnant I would like to knit the vanilla tunic!

Stephanie said...

Hi Ve! Well, you know I already knit and loved Stripe Study and am planning to knit Different Lines at some point. I like the clean, modern look of Veera's garments as well, but I'm not a sweater knitter. Those unloved skeins would find a happy home with me. ;-)

staci said...

I can't believe that someone didn't love this yarn!!!

The stripe study shawl is absolutely gorgeous as are all of Veera's designs...decisions, decisions! I think my current fave is the Honey Cardigan :)

Tara said...

Honestly she has too many gorgeous patterns for me to pick a favorite!!

twistedtexan said...

Stripe study is another pattern that has been in my queue for a while...but I haven't found the right yarn for it yet. This giveaway would be the perfect solution. ::wink-wink:: ;)

moemoe said...

I like summer plum
different lines
honey beret

I checked out her patterns in the past when i was looking for a simple sweater

MOE

Wooly Knits n Bits said...

The Honey cardigan is still a favorite. I also totally love the striped shawl and would make that in an instant! Would be so much fun to win!
woolyknitsnbits at live dot ca

Rachael said...

I think Folded is my favorite!

Suzanne said...

I think I understand how you spent so much time contemplating colors for the stripes shawl because I just lost a chunk of time looking at Veera's designs. It turns out I'm discovering I love cardigans specifically the Sprout. It's amazing. Thanks for encouraging me to look more closely at Veera's designs.

amchart said...

How to choose a favorite? August Pullover and Modern Garden are so unique, and Folded and Summer Plum are classic and beautiful too. They are all lovely.

CeltChick said...

Well, your link to Veera's blog took me to your Rules page. That's ok, I found her anyway! I think her Hooray Cardigan is just fantastic, that would have to be my favorite. I like the Lost in the Woods shawl too, very cute! If I knit Stripe Study, I'll likely give it away on my blog -- I wasn't terribly impressed with that design. Different strokes, right? Please pick me, I'm AnnBan on Ravelry or email me: adevineATmywayDOTcom, if I win. Thanks for pointing out Veera's designs.

heather said...

I love the hay cardigan! Such beautiful colors - thanks for another great giveaway!

Polarpurplebear said...

My favourite is the shawl!! I would love to make it!

Rachel R. said...

Like you, I have loved Stripe Study since the moment I saw it, but all Veera's patterns are amazing. It is probably my favorite, but a close second would be the Honey Cardigan.

rkray3 AT yahoo DOT com

Amy J said...

Veera's designs are all lovely...love the shawl, but my favorite pattern (right now...until I drool again) is Folded.

Thanks for another lovely giveaway!!

Lizbert said...

I love the cozy simplicity of the Comfort Cardigan. Now if only I wasn't scared of knitting sweaters...

Rachel said...

I think my favorite today is:
Different Lines but I have a hard time deciding between the shawl and the Cardigan Slow Line.

Just yesterday I was debating between the 2 stripes shawls and trying to decide which one to buy,,, still thinking and avoiding buying until I finish current socks!

Mim said...

I love her celery cardigan!

florapie said...

Folded is my favourite sweater (although I never knit pullovers) but the yarn and pattern for the 3/4 Happ shawl are already in my hands, so that will happen sooner. Love the colours you've put together!

Andrea said...

The Hooray Cardigan has definitely been in my queue for a while now. She has some really great designs!

Anonymous said...

I like the turmeric one. The stripe study shawl is also really nice, though! So sad that the yarn was never claimed!
Aliciakplummer@yahoo.com

soxanne said...

Oh my, so hard to decide.

I love Celery Cardigan, Okrankeltainen Jakku and Slow Line although they all look wonderful!

Jen said...

Folded is an absolutely gorgeous sweater!

lorraine said...

i love her designs..hooray cardigan is my fave..who wouldnt love a cardi named hooray?! raineoc@yahoo.com

Maryse said...

I love those two colors together and I too loved this shawl from the moment I saw it! My favorite pattern from Veera would probably be the Hooray cardigan. Oh, and I love what you do with the lemons you get ;-)

LauraD said...

The Magnamity Cardi is great. I love the way the pockets flatter the waistline.

jessecreations said...

Oh my gosh, I really love Plain and Simple Pullover!!! I'm not sure about knitting an entire sweater in sock yarn, oy vey, but I loooove it!!!

Jessecreations

SnohoTina said...

I like the Hay cardigan but the grey Madeline Tosh yarn will make a lovely shawl...hope I win.

MelissaHB said...

Veera is one of my fav designers. I've had the study stripe shawl in my rav queue since it came out. My fav short list of her designs:

1. Stripe Study
2. Pure and Simple
3. Hooray
4. Folded
5. Buckwheat

Lobug said...

I think I have to go with Folded for my favorite. There are a lot of lovely ones, though. :)

kristyh1981 said...

I really like the Hooray Cardigan. It probably wouldn't look great on me but then again that doesn't always stop me :D

Laura said...

Oh my goodness I had no idea how many of her patterns were on my dream wish-list! The stripe study shawl itself is my favorite. I've been discovering it over and over and loving it so much. The Hay Cardigan is also on my list. And pretty much all of them!

Bethany said...

My absolute favorite would have to be Turmeric! I'm imagining it in a deep grey, a dusty rose, or a warm earthy green. Or how about all of them? It's so simple and it's a perfect wardrobe staple!

asteride said...

I love Different Lines. I like your blog's rules too.
asteride at gmail.com

Susan said...

Love the 3/4 hap shawl!

glitterglamgirl (at) gmail (dot) com

Sue Lowe said...

Fascinating pattern! I can see why it intrigued you. It does me too!

Sabrina said...

I love the Honey Cardigan! Hope I get a chance to knit this shawl with that lovely yarn.

Rachel D. said...

I really like the Sprout Cardigan. I would even knit it in that same color. Beautiful!

Debra said...

I really like Folded - love the way it appears to drape, and 3/4 sleeves are my favorite.

renewedmind said...

Oooh, so many to choose from! I am in love with Summer Plum though. Thanks for a great giveaway!

LuisaM said...

Folded, Hooray, Plain and Simple Pullover, to name a few.
How can anybody leave those 2 skeins unclaimed?

Knitmish on Ravelry said...

I love Veera's designs because they are so versatile, and can be either chic and dressy, or comfy and casual. I love the Modern Garden cardi! So far, I have only knit the Blackcurrant Shawl (twice), and loved it! Enjoy the Lemon Drop Martini, and take life easy :) You still made a great giveaway happen, thank you!

Megan said...

Yay fate!! It's all lovely!
Thanks for the fun!

Enid said...

There's a certain simplicity to Veera Välimäki patterns. I really like the Okrankeltainen jakku. That is if I really have to name one.

Kamigaeru said...

I can't pick just one! It's a toss up between Plain & Simple, and the Twenty Ten Cardi. Both are in my queue. Must. Knit. Faster!

ChrisC said...

Pretty colors! I actually just finished making myself a stripe study a few weeks ago, and it's my favorite thing I've ever made. The pattern is fun to knit, goes quickly, and is just so elegant. Next to the stripe study, I think my favorite Veera pattern is the 2010 Cardi, which is next on my list -- I love the angled button front!

Anyway, if I win, you can give the pattern I'd get away to someone else, since I already have it, and I'll have to find something else wonderful to make with this yarn!

dclulu on ravelry said...

LOVE the colors. I have to say that I like Stripe Study the best (and far better than Different Lines, actually.) But I do really love her cardigans. Please translate Okrankeltainen jakku into English, Veera, please!

Little Miss S. said...

Love grey and red together. So pretty. My favourite is the Still Light Tunic. I think it would be perfect for fall/winter.

Michelle said...

OHH It's a hard decision, she has so many lovely patterns! But the Folded pullover really caught my eye!

Jack said...

Would love to feel that Anzula in person -- what a great name for yarn :)

Frankly Beka said...

I can't pick just one pattern. I really like Different Lines ans Sprout Cardigan.

Cary said...

I loved study stripes so much that I also knit different lines. Both are beautiful knits.

JoAnna said...

The thought of unloved yarn makes me so sad. I promise I will give it extra attention and support if it comes my way. :)

Cheryl MacKenzie said...

What lovely, yummy colours! I have knit this already, but I would totally do it again!

DramaticKnits said...

I would have to say that I really like the Stripey Study Shawl.

Nicole said...

Wow, those yarns really do go perfectly together! I think my fave pattern of hers is the True Slate hat. I love it!

Kassia said...

Oooo I love that pattern! I have not knit it yet and I think it's my favorite of her patterns. Lovely!

PNWBookGirl said...

I like the Honey Beret but could have fun with the Different Lines shawl with pretty yarns.

Sarah said...

I'm torn between the Hooray Cardigan and the Modern Garden Cardigan! There are so many others that I love, too. Veera's designs are gorgeous!
(SarahVV on Rav)

homeschoolmom said...

So many beautiful designs! I think my fave would have to be the Different Lines shawl, but I like the Magnanimity Cardi quite a bit too! Thanks for another great giveaway!!!

Brenda said...

There are so many great ones. But I think I will pick the Magnanimity Cardi. So pretty!

(goodstuff on Rav)

Kristen said...

The Hooray Cardigan caught my eye. I love the interesting shape and cable combination!

Knittingdancer on Ravelry said...

I love the Blackcurrant Shawl pattern. I will be glad to give any unloved yarn a loving home.

Jessica Powers said...

Folded took my fancy as well as the Honey Cardigan. Trying hard not to add to the queue and you've not helped this morning!

Emily said...

The Hooray Cardigan. Love the neckline and shape!

sparky136 said...

Its a toss up of Different Lines or Folded. Would love to do both

Pensamientos Marcianos said...

I ♥ that shawl and the plain and simple pullover too.

Amanda said...

The "Pipa" hat is super cute!

Lizzi said...

I had put the Still Light tunic in my favourites and I also love the Hay cardigan but the shawl is really lovely.

Nadine said...

I lean toward "Different Stripes"

Debbie said...

OMG! I think we were separated at birth because I have been carrying around the patterns (both Stripe Study and Different Lines) forever, and buying sock yarn to pair with stash yarn, and dreaming about the perfect combo . . . . so even though I already have both patterns, I think I'm destined to win this contest! I will donate the pattern back for another giveaway but keep the yarn, how's that? My favorite is Different Lines, btw.

Jean Ashley said...

I love that shawl pattern, but I really love her sweater designs (especially Paris).

Maria said...

I have been doing much the same thing as you with the Stripe Study Shawl, so it would have to be my favourite Veera pattern. And I think in part it has been her colour choice which has seriously drawn me to the pattern :-)

liz said...

I have to say the Stripe Study Shawl is my fave. But the plain & simple pullover would see a lot of wear in my closet too!! Thanks for another great giveaway!

Sangeetha said...

i like her hooray cardigan

Knittingmomma79 said...

Ohh pretty! I love her Folded pullover :0)

New Mexico Midwives said...

I am knitting Celery Cardigan right now and I love it. All her work is amazing!

I love the Folded sweater!

Ginger said...

I really like the "Hooray Cardigan"!

Denise said...

Rebecca Swan said...

Megan said...

I love Buckwheat! Another great giveaway, thanks for the opportunity to win!

yarrrnmatey said...

I love love love the still light tunic! I need to make it.

Theresa said...

Beautiful patterns! I especially love the Slow Line and the Summer Plum. Thanks for the giveaway!

JetteinFrance said...

How can that yarn be "unloved"? I would sure cherish it. Favorite Veera design? I would say Folded and then I love the new pattern Alga and plain and simple and well that shawl as well. Off to knit...

Christine Lima said...

I think I love her Hooray Cardigan the best - I could really see me wearing that one. Of course...I could see me wearing several of the others as well, so it's a toss up!

Heather said...

I really love the Plain and Simple Pullover and the Buckwheat sweater. I'm a sucker for simple, elegant knits! That said, the stripe study shawl looks awesome, too.

Yeay!

lilletblanc said...

What a fresh looking shawl design, so modern!! I would LOVE to make it with that gorgeous yarn!!

KnittyRN said...

This is my first time posting on a blog so I have my fingers crossed that I am doing this right! I find it extremely hard to choose a fave pattern here. I am thrilled that you have choose to highlight her patterns as they are all exceptional! If I had to choose a fave I would have to say it is Twenty 10 or Celery!! My bank account will not let me choose more at this time!!

fafaknits said...

I really like Folded! Simple yet effective and flattering!

becca said...

I love love love Veera's patterns. I can't wait to knit up a 2010 cardigan, a Hooray cardigan, a still light tunic, a hay cardigan... I think I want to knit everything she's designed. :)

Turtle said...

i love the design Hooray!

terip said...

I love her patterns I have eyeing the magnamnity cardi for a bit since it came out earlier this year. Love the shawl.

fracksmom said...

The summer plum is cute, but the celery cardi also looks like a project i would wear. Great stuff.

Judi A. said...

Sorry someone(s) missed out on those beautiful yarns, but glad it gave the rest of us an opportunity again to won them. It was hard to choose a favorite among all those great patterns, but finally decided on "Folded." :-)

mhchong said...

Love all of Veera's patterns. The stripe study is on my queue for sure. I also love the Hooray cardigan.

Rasa said...

I really like her golden wheat cardigan and the different lines shawl.

Zilliah Bailey said...

I love Sugar Plum! It's so hard to choose!

phosita on rav said...

Stripe study! I have picked out yarns for this 3295 times. (But not actually knitted it yet...)

jacey said...

I love Veera's style. Right now I'm working on the Plain and Simple Pullover, but have plans for the August Pullover in the near future:)

Debbie S said...

Oh, the yarn colors are wonderful. I love Veera's Folded sweater. Could wear it almost year round.

Captain Sharmie said...

the still light tunic or the modern garden cardigan are my favourites. been coveting that tunic FOREVER!

thanks for the giveaway!

Marianna said...

I love the Honey Cardigan

fridica said...

Hooray Cardigan is my absolute fave! It's been on my queue for a while...

ikkinlala said...

I think my favourite is the Different Lines shawl.

Amber said...

I quite most of her designs, but if I was making for myself, it'd have to be the Plain and Simple Pullover, I think.

Christine said...

I just started Different Lines in a lovely denim and gray merino silk combo!! the girls at Dyes for Wool on Etsy custom dyed these for me... it is a fabulously fun knit, going really fast and was super simple to memorize!!

melody said...

I love the stripe study shawl! It's been in my queue for ages, I just haven't found the perfect yarn combo yet. The Golden Wheat cardi is another favorite of mine. But honestly, I love all of her designs.

Anu said...

What a lovely giveaway!
I love the Stripe Study shawl of course, the colours are lovely! Among cardigans, I like the 'Folded' best - all her designs are so contemporary and beautiful!

babyloveknit on Ravelry

Nolita said...

Pretty tough to chose just one...It will have to be the Stripe Study Shawl for me. Thanks for a great giveaway!

Rachelle said...

I love the Summer Plum cardigan, very nice.

syd said...

I hate to be cliche, but I'd love to try the stripe study shawl - especially with that gorgeous yarn!

JoannaCos (Rav) said...

I admire all of Veera's uniquely gorgeous patterns but Stripe Study is the first one that had my fingers itching to cast on. Love those colors!

PenCraft said...

Summer Plum is awfully cute. But I've seen a lot of stripe study shawls lately, and that's a pretty sweet pattern too.a

Jen said...

Everything happens for a reason.....
I love this shawl & the Celery Cardigan. Thanks for offering the giveaway!!

Elaine said...

I've been following Veera's blog for a while now and have been admiring her Plain and Simple Pullover. Her newer Different Lines shawl is great too!

knitterlydesigns said...

I love this shawl too! Yours turned out really pretty. I would also 'love' these 'unloved' skeins.

knitterlydesigns on Ravelry

JodyH said...

Great designs! I love the Summer Plum sweater!

Kate said...

I love just about everything she designs and have been following her for awhile. I think one of my favorites is the folded pullover, especially in that deep, dark blue.

Nena said...

I really want to make a Honey Cardigan : http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/honey-cardigan

I could see myself in that!

meeshelle said...

I've had my eye on the Turmeric pattern for a while now, when I start knitting sweaters I'll be doing that one!

Grey and red yarn goodness?? who could ask for more!!!! :)

Amanda said...

I do love them all but I think Twenty Ten and Slow Line would def be my favorites :-)

floderten said...

The stripe study shawl, definitely. It's so versatile, and the colour possibilities are endless!

I'm also a big fan of the Modern Garden cardigan - it's my favourite sweater. :)

Rae Lynne said...

I really like her shawl patterns, but I'm most drawn to her sweater pattern, Turmeric. It's so lovely!

Christine said...

I love the Buckwheat pullover, so simple!

Kristin said...

Those are lovely yarns, and the pattern is quite fun, too!

I think Folded might be my favorite, but I'm easily swayed otherwise. Slow Line looks great, and the Honey Cardigan... and.. you get the picture

melonkelli said...

Oh my goodness, the stripe study is too beautiful!

October Rose said...

I really love the Sweet Vanilla tunic ... so feminine. :) Summer Plum is a close second though ... so hard to choose one favorite!

Anonymous said...

Sprout! I also like "Summer Plum"

Zenka Dyulgjarova said...

Sprout! I also like "Summer Plum"!!!

JP said...

I like the look of the 3/4 Hap shawl. Still don't do lace and still don't wear shawls, but it looks pretty :)

Glad you were able to get something together for this week. Enjoy your vacation!

bloups said...

I love that shawl, but I think I love most the still light tunic. I dream to knit it some day...

Anett Kiefer said...

Beside the shawls my favourites are Hooray, Folded, Still light and Plain & Simple.
Would be happy to win the giveaway.

Lisaknits said...

Love the shawl and all the patterns.

Cindy said...

I like so many of her patterns - am knitting Hooray now, so I think of the other ones I would say Folded.

April Edwards said...

I think Magnanimity Cardi has to be my favorite, but there are some beautiful options there.

Angela said...

Oh I love her patterns! I've had the plain and simple pullover queued forever!

Erin said...

Ooh, the Honey Cardigan is cute! She's got lots of great patterns, thanks for introducing me to her!

Asha said...

So many beautiful designs! I'm currently loving the Celery Cardigan.

ravelinglightly said...

"unloved" skeins?? Send 'em on over here; I've got lots of love for them. Perfect for a striped study!

If I wasn't so shawl obsessed, I'd be looking at her Hooray Cardigan as a favorite.

Still Light Tunic is so cute! Summer Plum is #2 for me. All are amazing.

How does one pick from all those lovely patterns?? I am currently into shawls (and should be called an addiction cuz it's bad) and I like the pattern you are giving away and I also like the 3/4 Hap shawl. I like too many of the cardigans to pick... she is very talented. ^_^

Very Beautiful Pattern! I'm looking for another shawl to knit for my Mom!

I like the 3/4 hap shawl and the Hay Cardigan.

I love Veera's designs! I've had my eye on the Celery Cardigan and Buckwheat for a while now.

I am in LOVE with the Golden Wheat Cardi, but I love the Graystone equally and I've had my eye on that for a while! I love this giveaway. I had been browsing beautiful FO's for this shawl on Ravelry recently and the color combos that I've seen blow me away! I'm PurlVerde on Ravelry, see you around!

I think Veera is my favorite knit designer right now. Last winter I knit most of her Twenty Ten Cardi (it's in heavy wool so I put it away for the summer), I'm working on her Golden Wheat Cardigan now and I'm planning to make the Hay Cardigan next. I think the Golden Wheat Cardigan is my current favorite if forced to choose.
Or maybe I just love any sweater that is pictured in yellow? A color I never wear?

Thanks for the giveaway!

Oh, that is a gorgeous shawl - Maybe I'll win...

I've purchased Modern Garden sweater but love Folded too. Of course the Stripe Study is to die for!
