Yarn Fanatic Party #23

Welcome to the twenty-third Yarn Fanatic Party!


How have you been?  Poor little Dominic caught the cold bug that's been going around.  Even with the sniffles he's a pretty chill little dude.  He can walk now!  He's been taking a few steps here and a few steps there, but over the weekend he walked across the living room and dining room repeatedly.  He's an early walker, just like his sister, at ten and a half months old.

In yarn news, I'm reviewing a beautiful skein from Expression Fiber Arts.  I have a hat on the needles for myself.  I did tell Catherine that she could share it with me sometimes, because she loves the yarn almost as much as I do!  (Below you can enter to win a skein for yourself!)

There were lots of great projects linked up last week!  One that especially caught my eye was Ionyka's First Baby Blanket.  I suppose I'm a sucker for a bright granny square.


Also, for a great v-stitch scarf, be sure to check out this post by my co-host, Alexandra.


Ready for a giveaway?  I'm super excited about this one!  (To be honest, I get pretty excited for all of the giveaways I host.)  Today's sponsor is Expression Fiber Arts.


The prize is a skein of Celestial 'Resilient' Superwash Merino Sock Yarn.

Details and Important Information: Must be 18+ to enter.  US only.  Void where prohibited.  Winner must respond to my email within 48 hours or a new winner will be chosen.  Social media is not affiliated with this giveaway.  Expression Fiber Arts is responsible for prize shipment and fulfillment.  Contact The Philosopher's Wife with any questions.

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.  (I would appreciate it though if it had not been linked up to a previous Yarn Fanatic Party.)  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.  (Please, take a moment to visit at least one other blog and leave a comment.  Personally I do a little happy dance every time I have a new comment -- and I bet that I'm not alone.  I try very hard to comment on everyone's posts . . . eventually.)  
Edited to add: If you're not a blogger, but want to participate, feel free to upload a picture from Flicker!

Also, by linking up you are giving me permission to use your photo if you get featured.

  1. There are so many yarn colors catching my eye lately. I think it is because of the gray days that I need to view all yummy yarn colors! :)

  4. I always love to visit the blog projects. This is my fave part of the week! Thank You! I l visited, and the yarn is gorgeous. As I have never got to work with something so special, I would love to have this. I loved all the yarn but the Morning Dew "resilient" Superwash Merino Sock yarn is my favorite. Since I never keep my crochet, I would love to have a beautiful yarn to work with to make myself something special. I always give it away, I love to share my passion. Fingers Crossed, what a great post. I love the links too, I added mine. Thanks as always!

  5. Great give away. I just luv finding new yarns. My stash is extensive, but I'm a little afraid of colour (lots of natural colours in my stash). Still learning, so my latest new technique is double knitting. Most of my finished objects go to relatives in Japan or friends here in the States.

    Check out Tagati on Ravelry.
