Legendary Knits Blog Tour and a Giveaway

I am so excited to be part of a blog tour featuring my friend Anne’s book, Legendary Knits.

Anne’s new collection is stunning, romantic and timeless!  I truly don’t know which design I will knit first, but I can tell you I’m truly anxious to cast on the Scheherazade Stole, Demeter Socks and the Rappaccini’s Daughter Shawl.

Here’s what you’ll find inside ….

Rapunzel’s Sweater - A graceful fitted garment with cable accents on the sleeves and hem.

Icarus Socks – worked from the cuff down featuring a winged motif in lace that spirals down the foot.

Scheherazade Stole – a rectangular piece that is knitted from one end to the other featuring a lattice-work/diamond motif border and edge, an easy slip-stitch colorwork pattern for the body.

Scheherazade Stole

The Woodman’s Sweater – a manly sweater featuring a boxy silhouette with modified drop shoulder sleeves, and a simple ribbed collar. My husband really likes this one!

Demeter Socks – featuring a simple wheat-sheaf lace motif on the front of the sock, and an easy-to-work textured barleycorn motif around the rest of the leg, framing the wheat sheaf.

Demeter Socks

Rappaccini’s Daughter Shawl – this semi-circular/almost hexagonal shawl features two narrow vertical bands of a floral lace pattern that run down the arms to the hem, with a matching floral lace pattern border, and an easy lace leaf motif for the remainder of the shawl

Rappaccini’s Daughter Shawl

Sleeping Beauty Cowl – a lovely colorwork piece knitted in the round using floral motifs.

Six Swans Sweater – a boat neck sweater  featuring a simple raglan-sleeve construction and bands of colorwork thistles around the body and sleeves.

This collection is truly beautiful and perfect for everyone’s wardrobe!  I will also add that Anne offers well written line by line instructions, as well as charted instructions where needed and very detailed schematics that will aid in the creation of a perfect fit!

I am quite excited to share that Anne has sent me two extra copies of her book to giveaway as prizes.  To enter, simply leave a comment telling me what your favorite design is in this collection.

This  giveaway is open to all and will close on Sunday the 29th  at 6:oo pm PST with the winners chosen by Random.org and announced on Monday the 30th.

The tour will continue over at these crafty blogs!

About Tina

I admit that I am a yarnaholic, fiberholic kind of gal who loves knitting, spinning and crafting in general! When I’m not knitting, I’m enjoying my time with my wonderful husband and our spunky little dog Sparkles. I love learning new things, meeting people who share my joy and passion for the fiber arts, and sharing with others. For me, blogging has given me the opportunity to nit only share my adventures, but my ups and downs, my projects, my goals and so much more.

    I love the Woodsman sweater and I’d love to make it for my dad (or myself). The Rappaccini’s daughter shawl is a work of art!

  16. Rhea says:

    Looks like a very nice book. I’ve wanting to try some more color work. The Sleeping Beauty Cowl might be just the thing.

  17. I like the Scheherazade stole. Would be heavy enough to wear as a winter cover up here.

  18. I REALLY love the Rappaccini’s Daughter Shawl. But all of the patterns from this book are just wonderful.

  19. lindarumsey says:

    The colourwork on the Sleeping Beauty Cowl is stunning. Another one to add to my Ravelry queue!

  20. amchart says:

    I love the cowl; it’s gorgeous. But I’m on the lookout for a sweater for hubby and Woodsman is really nice. HOWEVER, hubby just cut his foot with a chainsaw while doing firewood, so I might have to change the name for my sweater!

  21. Lori Ann Wallin says:

    I’d love to try the Woodsman’s Sweater. I recently cast on my first-ever sweater, and it’s so much fun!

  22. Marilyn (Merry) Fenton says:

    Love the demeter socks. But then I’m sock obsessed. : )

  23. Kathy Sasser says:

    They’re all absolutely stunning! But, since I love to make socks, I’ll have to go with the Demeter socks.

  24. Sheila says:

    I love the Scheherazade Stole.

  25. caityrosey says:

    I like the exotic look of the Scheherazade Stole. Overall I think that’s my favorite. I like the look of the Sleeping Beauty Cowl, but really, why would you put something like that on a person in a spell-induced coma? They might suffocate. Unless that’s magical protections knitted into all those little swirls.

  26. Quiltercaroline says:

    I think the designs in this book are really beautiful. I think I would have to choose the Rappaccini’s Garden Shawl as my favourite though. Many thanks.

  27. Moby Knit says:

    The Scheherazade Stole for sure! It’s gorgeous!

  28. I love the Rapuzel Sweater!

  29. maddytnn says:

  30. CeltChick says:

    The Sleeping Beauty Cowl is stunning! That would be my first pick, followed by the Scheherazade Stole. How sweet of you to offer this giveaway!

    Sleeping Beauty Cowl is my absolute favourite. I have some local, handspun, naturally dyed yarns I’d love to use to create this amazing piece.

  42. hoppinglark says:

    I really like the Rapunzel sweater. Using the cables for shaping is really fantastic. Plus I love the overall theme.

  43. Jacquie says:

    without doubt the Rapunzel sweater! I even have yarn in my stash to use :)

  45. needleandspindle says:

    I like the Demeter socks. my daughter and I have been reading the story of Persephone. The socks personify a bountiful, happy Demeter when Persephone is restored to her, albeit for a limited time.

  46. Gale says:

    I love the Demeter Socks, also the yarn color is beautiful.

  47. Janet says:

    Rapunzel sweater is my favorite, but this is one collection where I’m likely to knit up nearly all the patterns – both shawls, Six Swans and Woodsman are are hovering near the top of my queue :)

  48. Andrea B says:

    I think my favorite is the sleeping beauty cowl

  49. Margay says:
