E-Book Extravaganza Day One: Sideways Shawlettes

So I am kicking off an E-Book Extravaganza! And there are two ways to get in on it! You can choose the e-book of the day and get it for  half price (woot!) or you can make your e-book by choosing 7 PicnicKnits patterns from my store and get them all for only $18.95! Today and tomorrow's e-book of the day is Sideways Shawlettes - 8 sideways patterns for the half-off price of only $12.50!!! Use the coupon code "extra12" for that awesome deal!

To make your own e-book, put seven individual PicnicKnits patterns in your Ravelry cart, and apply the code "extraspecial" and the price will be only $18.95! Yes people, that is more than 50% off.

And are you familiar with all the pretties in the Sideways Shawlettes book? There are eight of them, and I'm featuring four of them today. Starting off with my very first (and most popular) sideways shawlette Gaenor.

Like all of the projects, Gaenor is worked from tip to tip. It uses 430 yards of fingering weight merino/silk, but you can use any amount of yarn because it's easy to transition from increasing to decreasing! By the way, this popular beauty has a slew of gorgeous finished objects on Ravelry.

Next up is Argante, which incorporates short-row shaping and a sweet rounded lace edging.

Then we have Kyveli - still worked side to side, but with some fancy reversible lace stripes incorporated. Don't worry - they are easier to work than they look!

And the fourth featured pattern for today, Bakersfield. Another fan favorite, this one is a shallow wide shawl that uses just one skein of Colinette Jitterbug.

So if you were going to make your own e-book, which patterns would you choose? I've got my favorites (naturally) but what are yours?
