Christina's Spring Collections Pattern Giveaway

Today is the launch of my sister's new spring pattern collection called Whispers of Spring. We are all SO EXCITED!!!!! There are five patterns included: a sweater, cowl, hat, fingerless gloves and shawl. And, Christina has kindly offered to give a pattern booklet away on this blog! So, leave a comment and I'll enter you into the drawing to win this fabulous pdf booklet! I'll close the giveaway on Friday and announce the winner then.

If you don't win the giveaway, you can find the pattern booklet for sale on Ravelry here.
And, Christina informs me that some of the patterns will soon be offered separately, if you don't want to knit the whole collection.


Isn't it all so beautiful!!! I'm actually 3/4 through knitting the sweater for myself -- in a lovely teal color which will be perfect for spring. (Another distraction from my baby projects.)

I'm afraid these pictures turned out small, but it's better these than nothing. :) Isn't the hat so cute! Apparently, as you will read in the booklet, it was designed after something being worn by Emma in the latest Masterpiece Theatre production.

And the cowl, in this bright green, is just the thing for spring.

I wish you could see the lace detail on the gloves. Those of you that are members of ravelry can log on and have a look!

I think the shawl temps me the most because it is so delicate and beautiful. Another reason you need to go to ravelry and see proper pictures. :) If I didn't have a baby to get ready for.......
Okay, so now it's time to leave a comment and get your yarn ready!!!

Oh my! Very beautiful yarn creations - I can't imagine trying to knit anything so advanced, but maybe one day I'll take the time to really learn the fine art of knitting! I love love love the shawl!

Oh these are just lovely. Can we 'furriners' enter?
Your sister is so gifted to be able to design something like this! Wow! If I win it, I think I'll be doing the shawl first - it looks beautiful.
By-the-way, I bought your baby gift this week. Fun, fun!

Hello Heather,
Lovely patterns from your sister. I am looking forward to photos of your sweater when its done. I find that my interest wanes slightly when I get about 3/4 done but once I'm near the end I can't wait to finish. I don't have baby knitting to distract me though!
We are finally getting spring over here, lots of flowers to photograph - hope all is well with you.

Hello there, I love your blog and you sister's designs. Perfect patterns for spring layering. Your spring tea pictures look so lovely and inviting, you have inspired me to have one for my friends. Thanks for the giveaway opportunity and telling us about the new spring collection.

Just discovered you via Jane Brocket - those knitting patterns look lovely. I am a big fan of Ravelry, but I had not come across your sister's patterns before - she is obviously very talented, and it is great to discover a new designer. I love Ysolda's work, too, and have her two books.

I am a big fan of your sisters designs. I took a KAL at the my LYS and made Delia, one of my favorite sweaters. I love her new designs. I think the shawl is my favorite.
