On this edition of YOTH we have a tremendously talented young man by the name of Stephen West aka West Knits. I had the absolute pleasure to meet Stephen back during the beginning of the year when I took a fun shawl techniques class that he was hosting while passing through my neck of the woods. Stephen just recently moved to Amsterdam and he was more than willing to come be a guest on the blog and do a Skype interview for us this week. Take a look...

Thank you Stephen for visiting us here on YOTH! Come back soon. I also want to give a big thanks to our wonderful yarn sponsor this week: Hedgehog Fibres!
One of the beautiful new designs in the West Knits Book One collection is a pattern called Pogona, and the beautiful orange and green samples shown on the Ravelry pattern page are both knit up out of one skein of the fantastic Hedgehog Fibres Merino/Cashmere.
So, guess what I have for you this week!!
Yes, take a closer look! YOU know you wanna reach through the screen and give them a squeeze!
Two very lucky followers have the chance to each win one of the skeins of Merino/Cashmere shown above and the ENTIRE West Knits Book One collection in PDF format, which includes the oh-so-lovely Pogona shawl pattern! That's not all! Two runners up will also receive the chance to win a PDF pattern of their choice from Stephen's new collection as well.
I would like you to do the following if you would like to be entered into this week's giveaway:
1. Read over the rules if you have not done so already.
2. Leave a comment on this blog post by the end of Sunday, 10/31/10. Stephen asks,"Is there a place or time where you would never consider knitting?"
Stephen's answer: I always have a knitting project (or four) with me and I often knit in public, but I would never knit during a yoga or dance class. I am well known for my ability to sweat. :)
Ve's answer: I'd never consider knitting while I am swimming. I usually knit with wool and my items would probably end up felting, and I'm good at multi-tasking but I don't think I'm that good!
I'll randomly pick the winners on Sunday and post the results on Monday along with the new giveaway, so be sure to check back. Good luck everyone.
