Stay warm this winter with 'Free-Spirit Shawls'

Be inspired with new and more fashion-forward patterns for knitting shawls with “Free-Spirit Shawls, 20 Eclectic Knits for Every Day” (Interweave/$24.95) by Lisa Shroyer, editor of “Knitscene” and author of “Knitting Plus: Mastering Fit + 15 Projects” and “The Best of Knitscene: A Collection of Simple, Stylish & Spirited Knits” (both from Interweave).

The book offers patterns that showcase four different themes: color, lace, simplicity and texture. Just in time for fall, you’ll discover exciting designs to suit your style andĀ fit your wardrobe, all from casual to dressy.

For a chance at winning a copy of the book, just email me at jbrown@detroitnews.com and tell me a story about your knitting. Please put the word “shawls” in the subject line, and REMEMBER to include your name and address.

Good Luck!!!
