Please email me at Sandrasingh@sandrasingh.com to claim your prize!

And please enjoy all of Ines Sousa's patterns at Seni Designs

In April of this year I had the pleasure of meeting knitwear designer Ines Sousa of Seni Designs.  I knew instantly my lace knitting clientele would love creating her airy and delicate crescent and triangular shaped shawls.  Sousa loves to play with color and though her detailed stitch patterns work beautifully in solids she is not afraid to show them off in variegated colorways too using some of your favorite lace and sock weight yarns from Madelinetosh and Malabrigo.  

Her ebook Crescendo, which features 5 lace shawl patterns, was an immediate success and we have since released all 5 designs independently as well as 3 new lace shawls.

I was delighted when she agreed to be featured on my blog and do a Giveaway!  We'll have 3 lucky winners:

  1. Espiral & a 130 gram ball of Kauni Effektgarn 8/2 (winner's choice of color)
  2. Winner's Pattern Choice
  3. Winner's Pattern Choice

Meet Inês Sousa: Sousa is an independent designer, self-publisher, with a passion for elegant and seamless knits with appealing shapes and textures obtained due to the combination of different pattern stitches and techniques. Several eco-friendly e-books have been published so far, showing the diversity and experimental character of her work - from fairly simple to more intricate and challenging designs. 

You can find out more of her work on Ravelry as Seni and at her blog seni-handmade.blogspot.pt

Enjoy Sousa's work!

I would love to win the Petala pattern because of its uniqueness. Also, her patterns don't have a spine down the middle.

Hello - thanks for the giveaway! I like all of Ines Sousa's designs - i will say that my favorite is Espiral because my dh likes it the best, therefore, that is the first Seni design I will be knitting :)

Anonymous said...

This is one contest I'd really like to win!
Crescent shawls are my favorite and this collection offers a wonderful variety of styles, from floral lace to simple stripes. I especially like Espiral because the garter stripes add texture to the contrasting stockinette.

I'm spreading the word by posting this contest on the Summerville Knitters group. I'll also post on Sandra's group page too.

I love Prana because yoga is part of my life and my husband's life. The design of the lace part reminds me of someone putting their hands in Anjali Mudra, the light in me sees the light in you.

mudder17 said...

I'm now following your blog (for some reason it had a problem with my other e-mail address), I joined your ravelry group and introduced myself, I announced this giveaway and gave a link to it on my facebook page, I liked your FB page, and I pinned my favorite design on my pinterest board. I couldn't figure out how to friend you on FB, though. I am apparently following, but can't find the button to send you a FR and it won't let me post on your wall.

Thanks for doing this giveaway. Love the designs!

Jessica said...

Love the Petala and Bem me Quer... both are so beautiful!

Tracey said...

I love Espiral because it's totally different (non-lacy) from any shawl I've ever made.

Manda-B said...

Petala is my favotite. I'm a sucker for leaf lace.

Manda-B said...

Oops, I looked at the names wrong, it's Nenufar

Alice said...

A most difficult choice, but I'd say Pranav

Lisa Stewart said...

Bem-me-quer is my favorite.

Giro is my fav because stripes are so "in" and this is a beautiful way to feature them. I'm in your Rav group, I like you on FB, and I'm on your em list.

mva5493 said...

all of them are just lovely! I think I am most drawn to hera!

Lisa said...

I LOVE the NENUFAR shawl with its leaves so gracefully twining within it. I happen to have a soft-spot for knitted leaves and crocheted pineapples, which is probably why my eye landed on this specific shawl. This is a design that I am certain that an elf would not only craft, but would also be seen wearing.

I am a long-time crocheter, designing most of my work as my various needs are why I crochet. I am also a long-time knitter of basic styles, but a 'newbie' when it comes to lace knitting. My first lace project is now on my needles, "Meads Scarf," and being almost done...it is looking like it is supposed to look. The Nenufar shawl 'looks like'...I could actually knit it up properly, and then wear it with pride.

I like the Nenufar pattern. It's very classic looking.
