Yarn Fanatic Party #19

Welcome to the nineteenth Yarn Fanatic Party!

It's a dreary day in my little corner of the world.  That means a that it's a perfect day to play with my yarn.  I currently am working with Red Heart's Medley Yarn.  I'll be showing you more of that later.

It simply is too dreary of a day, my photos of this yarn simply didn't do it justice.
So this is a stock photo from Red Heart.
There were so many beautiful projects linked up last week!  I'd like to give a special shout out to Laura at Sew. Knit. Grow. for the amazing coat she knitted for her daughter.  I've added the pattern to my Ravelry favorites, and whenever I get around to making it, I hope mine turns out half as nice.

The Yarn Fanatic Party co-host, Alexandra of Eye Love Knots, has been busy.  Did you see her free crochet pattern for a Slanted Shell Mug Cozy?

This week's giveaway is sponsored by Frayed Knot.  THREE lucky readers will win a pattern of their choice! I've been in awe of Jonna's patterns since I started following crochet blogs.  I've made quite a few of her "Easiest Headwrap Ever" and just finished "The Perfect Cowl".  The "Easiest Headwrap Ever" is one of her free patters, so hurry over and make one right now!  I also have her "Glamour Gloves" pattern and plan on making a pair soon.  (Is it just me, or are there so many projects and too little time?)

You must be 18+ and a US resident to enter. Void where prohibited. Winner will have 48 hours to respond to my email or a new winner will be drawn.  

Speaking of giveaways, make sure that you check you emails.  I emailed the winner of the $5 Amazon giveaway this morning.  She has 48 hours to respond.

Time to party!
What have you created with yarn?  It could be something you crocheted, knitted, or anything that used yarn.  It can be a new project or an old one.  (You just can't have linked it up here before.)  I can't wait to see what you've created!

The only rule is that everything you link to must be family friendly.

I would appreciate it very much if you:
  • Add my Yarn Fanatic Party button to your post or party page.
  • The Philosopher's Wife
  • Follow The Philosopher's Wife and Eye Love Knots.
  • Check out some of the other yarn goodies people have finished.
  • Leave comments here, there, and everywhere.  (Seriously, don't we all do a little happy dance when we get new comments?)  I try very hard to comment on everyone's posts.  
Also, by linking up you are giving me permission to use your photo if you get featured.
