giveaway #78

Let's start this giveaway off with a picture of the mystery giveaway:


TIGyarn

Awesome, right?! I told you that there would be ONE very lucky winner. And, the winner is:

Jen

Congratulations! Please contact me at yarnonthehouse@gmail.com to collect your prizes.


It's no secret that I love Stephen West's work. I've knit quite a few of his designs - especially his hat patterns for my hubby. Stephen is releasing his Westknits Book Three very shortly and he's done it again! The collection is cholk-full of beautiful, textured knitwear. Some of my favorites are: Bedrock, Moose River, Old Forge, and I'm loving the Sun Satchel.

But, my most favorite is the Dustland Hat and Mitts. I had the opportunity to knit up a Dustland Hat and it was such a pleasure. Fast, interesting, easy to follow with a fantastic FO at the end! I'm singing the same ol' song though. What can I say, Westknits is a keeper. Here are some pictures of my fabulous Dustland Hat:

Pattern: Dustland Hat
Designer: Stephen West
Collection: Westknits Book Three
Yarn: Malabrigo Yarn Merino Worsted
Colorway: Rhodesian 123
My Rav project page here
Modeled by: Jane & Danny



We had (and, still have) a winter wonderland in Woodinville, so this photo shoot with my bro and his girlfriend turned out so cute. Aren't they just adorable?! Not to mention how great the hat is!! It looks just as wonderful on Jane as it does on Danny. I love the outcome. Originally I wanted to knit this hat for hubby, but I think he's going to have to fight me for it!

In addition to the fun Westknits Book Three giveaway, I have a terrific yarn sponsor for you this time around. Skein is our lovely and very gracious sponsor. I have not had the opportunity to knit with Skein yarns as of yet, but I plan on changing that very soon. Skein's colorways are so amazing! I've been stalking their site for the last few weeks trying to decide what I would like to order. Stephen used Skein to knit the Moose River cowl out of their Merino/Silk Worsted. Stunning, right?!

Skein has been kind enough to send over two skeins of Top Draw Socks in the Barley color for two lucky followers to have a chance to win…


Skeinyarnblog


Along with the yarn, the two followers will each win an e-book copy of Stephen's West Knits Book Three. Yay!


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, 1/29/12. What's your favorite WK Book Three pattern? And, if you were me, which color would you order from Skein?


I'll randomly pick the winners in 2 weeks and post the results along with the new giveaway, so be sure to check back. Good luck everyone.

Sincerely,

Ve

I like Longview, fantastic cables. As for which colorway of Skein to order, I'm tempted to say one of each. Seriously, those are some gorgeous colorways! Envy is the one I'm most coveting, and I'll be envious if you order it.

Alex said...

Gotta be Old Forge and Industrial Age (oooh they fit together.)

Marlitharn said...

Woohoo, I'm in first! Old Forge really caught my eye (actually the model caught my eye first - rawr - but I'm assuming he's not up for grabs). And I really like the Sugar colorway at Skein - it just looks warm and soft and creamy and wonderful.

CrookedKnitter said...

I'm loving Longview and I'd have to go with Fig. I'm really drawn to that color, though they are all so wonderful!

Charlotte said...

I love old forge but would probably never cast it on myself .... bedrock looks more achievable.

If I were to order yarn from skein it would be either blue wren or little red.

Thanks for this chance to win lovelies again.

LochKnitsMonster said...

I like the Dustland hat and mitts as a set. Old Forge is a real show stopper but looks a little too ambitious for me right now. As for the color, I pick Organic. Persian green, teal, and slate grey? Yes, please.

Suzanne said...

whoa! Skein has some beautiful colorways. It would be very difficult to choose. I love their variegated ones like fig, nori and briar. As for the new patterns, I really like Longview.

grandmastatus said...

BEAUTIFUL colorway. I love Stephen West as well, and out of this collection I am most drawn to the Dustland mitts. And just to make me even happier there's a hat! Squee!!

As for colorway... oh my goodness. So many beautiful colors. I love hopeless romantic. and Sugar. And um, well, all of them.

Good luck to all. ♥

Rachel R. said...

I really like Moose River - a big squishy cowl would be awesome in this cold weather - in Outlaw.

Christine said...

I'm loving the Dustland hat and the Beach Shack color way!

Heather said...

I loooove Old Forge, but the Sun Satchel looks more achievable. Skein has so many pretty color ways I'm having a hard time choosing, but I think that Cocoa and Night Owl are my favorites.

BrittanyLaine said...

I like Dustland the best, definitely. And as for colors, I really love blue wren!

Carla said...

I like Longview in Quill.
I would also like the model wearing it if you can arrange that!

jennybookworm said...

I really like Thendara in the Westknits book - the shape of that shawl/scarf is very cool! I would pick Equinox or Spice in the yarn - really gorgeous colours!

Zabbers said...

I've had my eye on Old Forge for a long time (though I'm wondering if it would work as a lighter-weight shawl rather than an aran-weight blanket). And Skein colorways...oh my...I would get Outlaw. I've spun some targhee by Skein and just adored it.

Cate said...

Dustland Mitts. And Pearl, or maybe Plum.

Amanda Lyn said...

Old Forge stole my heart just now. Barley is my favorite color from Skein, close call with Inkstone.

Kathy said...

I love pretty much everything in the new book, although I have my eye on Moose River. I love Barley, and Urban, and geez, I could go on for a while! I pre-ordered WestKnits 3 a while ago, so someone else could have the book, but oh man, would I love to try Skein!

Jen said...

Dustland hat & mitts. And I am in love with the Sugar colorway!!

Beth said...

I like Moose River, although I doubt that I know a guy confident enough to wear it...I'd just have to make it for myself. :-)

As for the Skein yarn, I LOVE the Whitewash colorway. The combination of muted pastel is not my usual thing at all, but it caught my eye immediately.

flora said...

moose river and colour inkstone would be my picks!

Steph said...

I'd say get some Geisha and Organic....And I think the sun satchel is pretty nifty.

Christine Lima said...

I love that Seaway hat and I'd order "Make Hay While The Sun Shines" for sure. Many of the colors are beautiful, but I love the name of that one ;)

Sylvie said...

I like Thendara, with its angular shaping. Plus since it's multicolored, you get to choose TWO colors of yarn. I'd pick Blush and Sugar for some warmth, or Peppermint and Urban for something cooler.

marianne said...

the pattern and colorway currently catching my attention are Thendara and Sci-fi. thanks for this chance to win!

Rachelle said...

I really like the Sun Satchel, it's a bit different and very useful. For colourway I'd go with Elderberry; suck a lovely colour

staci said...

Longview, hands down. Which colorway is a lot harder...Barley or Urban.

jamielw said...

Wedgewood looks so cozy and I would have to go with Industrial Age. Skein dyes great greys (I already have some stashed away).

Knitmish on Ravelry said...

I love Longview- those cables look very squishy and cozy around the neck! Skein has amazing colourways! Not an easy decision, but I love both Blush and Midlands. Thank you for another fantastic chance to win!

Gynx said...

I love the Longview pattern! I'm also loving the Outlaw colorway.

Kristen said...

Love the Dustland Hat and Dustland Mitts. And I'd choose the color Midlands.

mommieof4munchkins said...

OHHHHH Skein is one of my new favorites to drool over online! I have yet to pet it but I know I would love it. Great pics!! They look so cute :D And that hat is awesome, I will help you fight Mark for it ;)

Emily said...

Old Forge. Wow. And Beach Shack for the yarn. Double wow.

flossie said...

Old Forge and Sun Satchel!!

Melody said...

I like Bed Rock pattern and Little Red yarn.


melodyj(at)gmail(dot)com

Tiphanie said...

I like the Dustland Mitts! But it's so hard to choose just one color! I think Beach Shack or Skyline, although they are all very lovely.

Chris said...

Love that Barley color. I can so see it in the Dustland Hat. I think the subtle color changes would make the patterns really pop.

rockbridge said...

This one is easy for me. I love the Dustland hat (not trying to be a copycat!) and I would die for Skein's pastel sky colorway. So delicate. So gorgeous.

Kristin said...

I think the Thendara pattern is really interesting! I like the Cocoa colorway at Skein, as well as Midlands!

Amanda said...

Love Old Forge and the Sun Satchel.
As for the yarn... wow.
Midlands? Spice? Any of them!

alligator said...

My favorite pattern from WK 3 is Wedgewood. It is so simple and elegant and just really seems like something I would wear. I really like Bedrock and Old Forge too.

The skein colors look really gorgeous. I am in love with gray this year so I like Graphite but Dapple really calls to me as well.

Stranded Things said...

I think I gasped out loud when I saw Old Forge, but the thought of actually knitting that beautiful monster is a bit daunting. In reality, therefor, Thendara would be my first knit from the book - what can I say, I'm a sucker for stripes! It looks like an interesting knit, too.

From skein, I would order blue wren, it's so lovely and luminous.

renewedmind said...

Wow! Gorgeous colors! I think I'd pick Sunlight and knit a Wedgewood with it.

renewedmind on rav

Tracey said...

I like the shawls but am on a hat kick. I like dust land too. And I would pick organic or pearl. But all are lovely. You can't go wrong with any of your choices.

Frankly Beka said...

I really like the Dustland Mitts pattern. If I don't win I may just have to spend $6 to get it. As for Skein yarn's colors, I'm partial to Sea Salt. I also like Outlaw. The two would pair well together, don't you think?

NimrodVern said...

I like the Bedrock hat. I would order the Blueprint colorway.

Little Miss S. said...

It's a tie between Thendara and Wedgewood. Perhaps with the latter being slightly ahead. And if I were to choose for you I'd go with the Daisy colourway. Gorgeous colours.

Debbie in KY said...

I like Old Forge and I'd make with Skein's Barky & Quill colors.

Wooly Knits n Bits said...

There are so many great patterns but I love Thendara. Fav colour is Tundra. And that giveaway, OMG, could I be lucky enough??!!
Rav: zenitude

Jenna said...

I like Thendara. I'm pretty smitten with stripes lately. As for colors, I think Envy and Barley are lovely.

sparkeespud said...

I have to say Old Forge is gorgeous! And picking just one fave colorway of Skein is hard. But I think today I'm feeling the Organic.

Katie said...

I also love the Dustland Hat and I am torn between two colours - the varigated Industrial Age and Hopeless Romantic!

Michael said...

Hard to choose, but Bedrock catches my eye (and as someone new to knitting, I think it looks like a good one to start with). As for colorway, it's almost impossible to choose. Right this second, I'd probably go for Organic.

JoAnna said...

How in the world is it possible to pick one of those gorgeous colorways? Maybe Bittersweet or Spice or Midlands. Lovely! They would all be fantastic for Dustland Mitts - long gloves are AWESOME.

collegeknitting said...

Do I have to pick just one favorite pattern? They're all so wonderful! I guess it would be bedrock...or maybe seaway. It's so hard to choose when all of the options are fantastic. And picking my favorite colorways are just as hard...beach shack looks like it would make an awesome pair of socks, but element has those spots of bright green! Such a hard decision.

SDGvegan said...

I think I favor the dustland hat and mitts, though I rarely knit mitts. I don't know why. I should more often. Colorways are tough as they are all so gorgeous. I'd probably go for a gray shade like Be Mine, Graphite, Inkstone, or Urban. I also love the greens.

MicheleStitches said...

I am strangely drawn to the Old Forge pattern. I hardly ever wear green, but Skein's Gingko is lovely.

Sara said...

The Skein colorways are absolutely fabulous, as is Stephen West's design genius. It was a struggle, but I vote for Moise River in Dapple.

twistedtexan said...

I love the Little Red and Spice colorways, and I would love to knit Thendara. The construction looks really interesting.

Maegwin said...

I love the Longview scarf! Thanks for pointing out this book...I hadn't really looked much at Stephen West's designs before. If I were you, I'd order the blush colorway. It's deep and rich and would work for a man or woman. What a lovely giveaway. I've been enjoying seeing your projects so far this year. Keep up the sharing!

sharryn said...

I love the Dustland hat ... too many beautiful patterns to chose from . Beach Shack is my favorite colorway...

great giveaway

Colleen said...

Your photos have totally sold me on the Dustland hat! It's so cool.
As for the yarn, I LOVE Be Mine! (and maybe one of those models could be mine too!)

Lael said...

I think I'd start with the Seaway cap. Skein color? Maybe "Envy" or "Savannah". Lots of pretty colors!

SnohoTina said...

Oh, must knit Dustland hat in the Blueprint colorway. Fantastic giveaway!

Marguerite said...

I really like Theandara. The construction looks interesting, and I'm sure I would wear it all the time. As to which color Skein you should choose, I can see your dilemma. As I was scrolling down my red were bugging out. They're all lovely. In particular, plum, quill, organic, and sunlight caught my eye.

Sangeetha said...

Love Moose River and Organic

amchart said...

Love the cables on Longview. The colorways are amazing. Thistle looks lovely. Rav amchart

Karen said...

With your fantastic photos, you've sold me on Dustland! Though Seaway is a great hat too. My favourite Skein colour is Ao. You really have to see it in Merino/Silk Sport to get the full effect of this fantastic colour!

sparky136 said...

I love Stephen West's patterns and I want to knit Dustland. My favorite colorway is Geisha

Annie said...

Old Forge - no question. and I would work it with Outlaw and Envy... oooo

Melinda said...

I'm loving the Sun Satchel, and Outlaw is the colorway that is calling my name! Is it calling yours?

Lindr said...

Since you force me to choose, I'll have to say my favorite design is the Old Forge shawl. I think this would be amazing as a blanket!
And given the fact that I'm in the middle of a snowstorm right now, I think everyone need a little 'sunlight'. Such a dollop of cheer in the midst of winter!

marlie said...

It's SOOOO hard to choose *one* pattern and *one* color! But If I had to, I think I'd go with Bedrock (hat) in Tuscany.

(Or maybe Bedrock in Sci-Fi, or Old Forge in Inkstone and Thistle... AGH, too many choices!)

Aimee said...

I've had my eye on Theandra for a while now. I'd love to make it in Envy/Graphite or Envy/Outlaw. Sooo pretty!

LeftSide Knits said...

I would love to see Moose River paired with a bright yellow like Sunlight. Perfect for the gloomy winter days!

Laura said...

I love all the patterns, but I've been eyeing Dustland for a while. I love it in the orange you used! As for Skein, their colorways have been tempting me for a while. I'd say Fig or Midlands. Or, you could buy one of all of the colors and give the rest away once you decide!

katherinelynn_04 said...

I LOVE your dustland hat. So much so I have to say that's my favorite. As for colors, talk about a hard choice. I would have to say Ginko, because it is SO HARD to find a nice green and that one is beautiful. But there were so many other colors! Like elderberry and the reds.

susanmhj said...

So hard to choose one color, lots to love! So guess I would go with ghost gum for the moose river cowl!

Eva said...

This decision making has nearly short circuited my brain.
My favorites would have to be Old Forge and Blue Wren.
Now if I can just manage to post the comment without changing my mind again...

Sabrina said...

I think Longview is my favorite, though there are a few that I really like a lot! As far as colorways go, I am having a tough time choosing. But, 3 of my favorites are Sugar, Thistle, and Midlands.

Judi A. said...

I like Thendara. The shape fascinates me.
All the colors are beautiful but I settled on Hopelessly Romantic.

chels said...

I like Wedgewood, very classy.
Wow, the colors! how can you choose? Umm, lets say Keffir Lime.

Megan said...

My favorite is definitely the Dustland hat and mitts. My friend is knitting the mitts and I COVER them! Thanks for the opportunity to win!

syd said...

Such hard choices!! Dustland hat would be a fun next project... and the colors! I keep changing my mind about the color -- I think my favorite might be sterling. :-)

Jessica Snell said...

I think I'd make Wedgewood out of that book - it looks like something that my husband would enjoy wearing on his walk to work. And I'd order Gingko - it's just and *interesting* combo of colors; I think it'd be fun to see how it worked up.

October Rose said...

I'm on a blanket kick right now, so I'm really liking Old Forge. And I have to say that both the name and the color of Hopeless Romantic is seriously making me crave a new skein of yarn ...

Knittingdancer on Ravelry said...

I would like to see Moose River knitted out of the colorway "Be Mine". My favorite pattern from the book is Thendara.

knitterlydesigns said...

I really love Moose River cowl and Dustland hat. It doesn't hurt that the pieces are all on such handsome men. I can't pick a color, because they are ALL gorgeous, and I would use them all.

knitterlydesigns on Ravelry

Karla said...

My choice would be Moose River in China Town or Moose River in Barley. Scrumptious!

josiekitten said...

I just love the Longview scarf. But there are loads of really lovely knits, so it's very hard to choose!

ruth said...

I love the Sun Satchel and Thendara.

And I'd love to get some Tundra from the Skein colour way choices.

InJuneau said...

I love the Moose River cowl, esp. since I think I need to knit myself a cowl (won't be fast enough for this cold spell though!).

Color? Gingko or Tundra or Sea Salt or Spice... There are so many awesome colors at Skein!

Michele L. said...

I am enamored with Moose River - love the big cowls. And Blueprint from Skein.

Denise said...

I love the Longview scarf, and oh my the colorways are gorgeous! I think I'd pick Daisy, or Rouge, or both ;-)

punkcutie said...

I like the Dustland Hat and Mitts the best. All of those colorways are gorgeous! I like Hopeless Romantic.

Debonair Designs said...

I have been coveting Steve's Dustland Mitts since I first saw them :)) As for my colorway choice, I am unable to view them, just blank . . but I love earth tomes . . . btw: that is one great looking hat

Kassia said...

Oooo I'm liking the Dustland Hat. So many pretty colorways....fig looks really pretty though. :)

ChrisC said...

I think the Seaway hat is my fave, though it totally needs a bobble on top :-) As for the Skein yarns -- woah. Those colors are fabulous! How do you even choose? I think I like rouge the best, or maybe plum. Or Midlands! Sorry Madelinetosh -- I think I have a new yarn obsession :-)

Captain Sharmie said...

The thendara scarf for sure! sooooo beautiful. I cannot even handle it. I can't wait to get my hands on the pattern.

I love those colourways! I'd say quill is one of my favourites. oooo, boy! i have a weakness for variegated blues!

fracksmom said...

Wow so many colors so beautiful Industrial Age is so unique, I would have to pick it. THe colorway is not something you normally see. I think I have to agress with Alex, that this color goes with Old Forge, but other colors would go with other projects. Being So Calif, hats are not a hot item to make.

do love his patterns and have made one of his scarfs

Natalie Servant said...

I'm totally in for this! I like Bedrock & I like Sunlight, Little Red & Quill for colours.

Jessica Powers said...

Dustland Mitts strike me - I love long fingerless gloves, and the texture looks totally appealing. Been hearing lots about Skein, and they are just over the pond from me so I anticipate getting my hands on some in the future. Dolce really sings out to me, but also Silva and Ghost Gum.

Hope you'll bring us an interview from Skein sometime - her colours are so unique and interesting I'd love to hear about the inspiration and process!

k8craft on ravelry said...

I have to say that the Dustland set is my favorite. Colors are so hard, I want one in each of those colors. Spice and Ghost Gum are my two favorites though. I just love the name and it fits the dusty pink/gray coloring.

cindymen said...

I like the China Town color although there are so manny beautiful choices I can see why you are having trouble choosing. I really like the hat patterns (also hard to choose one)!

txtaurus said...

I like seaway, but I'm a big fan of cables! And blue wren...blue is another soft spot for me.

John said...

I really like Old Forge. For the colorway it would either be Cinnamon or Knight.

Lizbert said...

I love Bedrock. Like Dustland, just a simple beautiful design. And I like Outlaw, for the colorway.

PenCraft said...

Pattern: Thendara. But it's a tough choice. So many great patterns.
Color: Impossible choice! Blue wren, Midlands, Inkstone, Fig, Wintertied, Whitewash, Knight, the list goes on and on and on. Oh my gosh!!!!

asteride said...

I like Longview. It would be great in any yarn.

Trevor Walker said...

I love Longview and Wedgewood. I think these are the most gorgeous colorways I've ever seen. I've always wanted to knit with something like Dapple or Tribal.

ikkinlala said...

I think my favourite of the patterns is Thendara, and if I were you I'd order the Inkstone yarn.

homeschoolmom said...

I really like the chunky cables of Longview, but the hats are great too. Then there's the YARN! Absolutely gorgeous!!! I want one of each. Not sure I could only choose one if I were buying, but the colorway "Whitewash" has an interesting name and I like the subtlety of the hues. :)

Loca4crafts said...

My favorite pattern is the Sun Satchel. Skein has such beautiful colorways, but the two that called out to me are Elderberry and Metallurgy. Gorgeous.

sacha said...

I hope I win! I really like Seaway- as for colors... I would love Daisy or Peppermint, but for you- Geisha or Outlaw!

Fibercrafter said...

Dustland would be my first knit, but Westwood close behind. How about the Thistle colorway? It looks like spring, not too pale.

Cheryl said...

Oh my oh! Those colours are stunning! So hard to narrow down. I loved Lush, and Spring, and Blue Wren..... Wouldn't they look lovely knitted into a Dustbowl hat?

lorraine said...

dustland hat for sure! and id have to go with midlands..its just so awesome!

JoannaCos (Ravelry) said...

For the patterns it'd be a toss up between Bedrock or Moose River. As for the yarn, you really can't go wrong with any of the Skein colors. I love Industrial Age and Nori (Kaffir Lime is beautiful as well!)

LuisaM said...

I like Bedrock.
Little Red, Midlands or whichever! They are all gorgeous.

Elspeth H. said...

I think I have to say the Dustland Hat. The mitts look like a lot of fun too. And "Be Mine" is to DIE for.

craftink said...

I like the Moose River. And I would pick the hopelessly romantic colorway!

Katie Martin said...

I am a sucker for hats, so Seaward is obviously right up my alley. Picking a color, however, is a bit more problematic. I think I drooled over every picture at least three times. I think I have to go with Blue Wren. It is subtle and shiny and perfect!

czsknits said...

I think the mitts pattern is interesting and the color that caught my eye is envy!

Tara said...

Seaway and Rouge!

cmflame said...

Bedrock spoke to me the loudest of the patterns. Like others I want one of each Skein! But I would start with blush and hopeless romantic.

sherry said...

I like Seaway. The Yarn color are wonderful. The Graphite and Daisy are my faves.

Turtle said...

wow! wonderful!!! loved all the patterns but old forge and dustland mitts caught my eye first.. I loved the silva yarns as well as ghost gum, must go back and bookmark that site! thanks,

LynnIL said...

I like Thendara! Wow, love the Skein colorways. I would pick rouge - so pretty! I like the Dustland hat, too.

Martha d said...

I love Thendara and the Inkstone colorway. Thanks for the giveaway.

florapie said...

I've long been admiring the subtle greys of Skein colourways, although the reds and oranges are gorgeous too, and the pinks...as for a pattern, Old Forge looks like a lovel challenge!

Brenda said...

Old Forge is the most beautiful, but a bit daunting. I'd prolly knit the Longview.

as for yarn colors, I love Rouge and Blueprint.

Thx!

(Goodstuff on Rav)

windzgirl said...

I just got Westknits books 1 and 2 and love them! I would love to knit Thendara from book 3. As for the Skein yarn, I'm kind of in love with Dapple!

Sarah said...

Moose River in Knight. There's so much depth to the colourway - and imagine that peeping out from underneath your winter coat!

Enid said...

It's difficult to choose. I like the Seeway hat and Thendara scarf.

Vikki said...

I love Longview and I would knit it in Outlaw....in fact I think I will do just that. Thanks for the great idea! wowza!

Knittingmomma79 said...

I love the Longview. And the colorway would have to be Midlands, a beautiful green!

yarrrnmatey said...

I love the bedrock pattern and would definitely get about 20 skeins of Briar if I were you!

auntgerry said...

I like Sun schatchel in Fig color
I think this yarn is yummy.
AuntGerry on Ravelry.

vasterblue said...

I can't stop looking at Longview. There are so many great colorways of to choose from, but Mangrove is my first pick.

Vanessa said...

Moose River and Blue Wren. Love Stephen West designs!

Angela said...

I love the Dustlamd Mitts and i think they'd look great in Midlands!

Anu said...

I loved his Thendara and as for the colourway, they're all so gorgeous - difficult to choose just one! But I'd go with Envy!

dclulu said...

I love all the hats in this collection but especially Bedrock. And as for Skein colors, wow, so much eye candy.Inkstone is kind of calling to me, as are Quill and Spice.

Marion said...

Wedgewood is a very sophisticated design and I would suggest that you could choose Cocoa as a colour that was very suited to this item.

Happy knitting!

Avila said...

I really like Thendara for the bold geometric shapes together as a shawl/scarf. For the skein color I think "Wild Apple" is my favorite!

Rasa said...

I really like the Thendera shawl...oh and I love the Dustland hat! Colorways...blush in semi-solid and gingko in variegated.

Lisaknits said...

I really like the Bedrock hat

Martha said...

I like the Thendara shawlette, reminds me of Daybreak, of which I'm thinking about knitting again!

Skein has some gorgeous colors, but I'm really loving the blues -- Quill & Blue Wren. It'd be so fun to pick 2 for a pair of colorwork socks :)

Gracey is not my name.... said...

Jen is definitely a lucky winner!

I am also drawn to Stephen's designs, although I have yet to make one. What really draws me are his more linear designs, so my eye was drawn to Wedgewood and Thendara...And for the color of Skein, Night Owl is gorgeous! and I really liked Be Mine, too

meeshelle said...

I agree with you, Stephen has some really great patterns! I have knit a few of his patterns and loved them!

From Westknits Book Three I'm loving Bedrock a lot!! Super nice!!!

From the lovely Skein I would order Quill, Barley or Organic. WOW do they have some gorgeous colors on that page!!! lol

thank you for the great giveaway!

Rachel said...

Right now my favorite is your hat the Dustland and the color - I can't choose one! but if I must I will go with Be Mine (pretty please!)

JodyH said...

Longview would have to be my favorite pattern, although I do love the Dustland hat. And my favorite color from skein is Be Mine.

Catherine said...

Dustland in Plum would be beautiful. Thanks for the opportunity.

Alice said...

Dustland Mitts for my husband. I don't know what color I'd choose were I you, but I'm ordering Quill for the ones I'm going to make.

StaceyKnitsIt said...

Dustland Hat is my favorite.
Yours is fabulous!
Okay, I am going crazy here.
I Love all these: Be Mine, Cocoa, Midland, Outlaw, Barley, Drift, Sci-fi. Can't pick just one now.
I Hope so much to win!! I've never used Skein before.

SaaS said...

The dustland hat and mitts are great patterns. I like the Beach shack colorway.

Marie said...

Longview is cool. And for the colorway - oh my, that´s hard. But it might be Sugar. Thanks a lot.

Debbie said...

Since I am in a bit of a cowl jag (last 4 projects . . .) I would have to say that Moose River is my favorite project from WK3. And my favorite colourway is definitely Kaffir Lime.

Cheryl said...

Hands down Old Forge and elderberry....the hat is awesome

Marie said...

I love all the color ways but my eyes kept going back to thistle and I am adoring the Longview pattern!!

C Gibson said...

Dustland is also my favorite. Lovely texture.

Night owl and organic are my favorite colorways! Gorgeous!

Maryse said...

Thank you for that great contest! I would say my favorite pattern is Bedrock and as for the colors, I agree that they are wonderful, especially the semi-solids. If I were you, I would order: Inkstone ;-)

Oh, this is hard. My favorite patterns are Dustbowl Hat and Seaway, but they are all cool. And Skein! Talk about drool. If I were doing something for myself, I'd order thistle or night owl, but for something more manly... maybe metallurgy or hush. So hard!

Nicole said...

My fave pattern in that e-book actually is the Dustland Hat, but I also really love the Sun Satchel. As for color, I can't seem to get the link to the website to work, so I'm not sure. :(

I love the dustpans and seaway hats from Westknits 3. My favorite. Color ways of Skein are blush, organic, and envy. Thanks for the giveaway!

The Dustland Mitts are so cool! As for Skein, I think their Inkstone colorway is very sophisticated.

OLD FORGE OLD FORGE OLD FORGE

Its absolutly stunning!

and my favorite color is inkstone but if I were you i would pick the Hush just because it is different from what I have seen but still beautiful.

Dustland mitts. I've been in a teal mood lately so the color would have to be Blue Wren. Love the semi-solids.

Lovely patterns and gorgeous colors! I love all three hats and I think Cocoa is a perfect color.

evan said...

my favourite is probably longview. as for the skein colourways, wow! i didn't see a single colour i didn't completely love! they're all gorgeous!

karen alho said...

One of those semi solid blues! It would take more time than I have right now to narrow it down! They're all gorgeous!

Unknown said...

Wow, Skein has some gorgeous semi-solids. I love all of those greys across the bottom row... would make a super cozy winter cowl neck! And continuing the cowl theme, I love the Moose River cowl. That might just be heading in my queue right now...

Susan said...

Love love love the bedrock hat. It would look lovely in the Midlands green color! My fiancee would love it!

Jen said...

Mooseriver in wintertide!

Kathy said...

A great pattern is Wedgewood and a lovely color is Blue Wren.

Favorites - Thendara and Wedgewood. But I love most of them.

Sarity said...

I really like Seaway. It looks like a hat everyone in my house would fight over!
As for colorways, I can't decide between Envy and Blue Wren.

slmiller8 said...

The Seaway hat is very cool. One of my favorite Skein colors is cocoa, but there are alot of close seconds

Jenifer said...

Rouge looks pretty on my monitor. As for the SW patterns. There are so many to love! I'd say the Dustland hat is my fav from this book (the Dustland fingerless mits are awesome)...see, there's so many!

Zilliah Bailey said...

Oh man, Old Forge looks great! As for the yarn, definitely a semi-solid, but picking just one colour might break me. I'd go with elderberry or blue wren. Or everything, that's a good choice too.

CraftingCrone said...

I love Old Forge. It's one of those patterns that keep popping up in my browsings. And the metallurgy colourway is just what I would dye if I knew how to dye.

Nuttygal said...

I love the Dustland hat and I would order the Midland colorway it is gorgeous

Stephanie said...

Last week's winner definitely was lucky, but this week's prize also looks great! My fav WK3 pattern is probably Thendara, although the shape looks to be the same as Herbivore. I do like the various stitch patterns used in Dustland Hat as well. Skein has a lot of great colorways! But I thought Make Hay While the Sun Shines was a great combination of browns, yellows, and greens. (sjn821 on Rav)

pennie said...

I've knit a Stephen West design or knit with Skein yarn. I'd love the chance to do both with winning this :)

The Distracted Knitter said...

I am also a fan of the Dustland hat and mitt set. I love the look of the texture! And I'm totally drawn to the Hopeless Romantic colorway!

Floderten said...

I really love Longview and the Dustland Hat. Both are awesome accessories. Stephen West always has interesting and clean designs that I like very much!

As for colours... Anything blue, if you ask me!

Carole Geronimo said...

All of his patterns are so intriguing, fascinating & often quite simple although complex. I'd choose Thendara, I love the way it wraps around the neck revealing each point. The colorway I'd choose is Cocoa, matching the deep swirls. Love your stuff

Teri said...

I am in love the Moose River cowl! All of the different stitch patterns give it such a great texture. As far as color, I thin Quill is a gorgeous, bright blue.

mhchong said...

Love Stephen West's Moose River. Who wouldn't want to cozy up in that?!? As for Skein... OMG, one of my favorite dyers. Knight is a beautiful color, but I also love barley as a beautiful neutral.

Pensamientos Marcianos said...

I love Stephen West's patterns! I'm gonna pick Longview.
As for which color to order, there are so many great colorways! It's hard to pick just one. I'm going with Ghost Gum, it goes with the weather here today: rainy with a bit of sun.

Marilyn said...

Thendara has a really interesting construction and it looks like it would be really fun to knit and I love the Plum color! Thanks for the chance to win!

Anonymous said...

I'd knit Thendara first. As for colour, there are too many to choose from, I can see why you have trouble choosing!

Anjanette said...

So many fun choices! Old Forge is pretty amazing and definitely going in my queue. There are too many gorgeous colorways of Skein too choose from, Spice and Sea Salt are especially calling my name.

Celeste said...

Love the name for the colorway of this week's giveaway-I work on improving barley as a crop for my graduate studies. I think the Spice colorway would be a good one to order from Skein. And I really like Wedgewood pattern.

Katrina said...

Dustland Mitts

and Nightowl for the skein (although, really any color is super gorgeous.

Elaine said...

I would probably choose Wedgewood with either Barley and Hopeless Romantic or Barley and Outlaw as the colour combinations for the scarf. If I were you, I would probably order either Little Red, Spice or Tuscany.

Anna Conway said...

Love Wedgewood! I would use Rouge and Raku.

Geraldine said...

Moose River and Urban!

Cindy said...

Dustland ... In spice

Anett said...

I would knit Moose River in Industrial Age. I love this colour combination.
