Awesome, right?! I told you that there would be ONE very lucky winner. And, the winner is:
Congratulations! Please contact me at email@example.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

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…
Along with the yarn, the two followers will each win an e-book copy of Stephen's West Knits Book Three. Yay!
1. Read over the rules if you have not done so already.

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.
