Yarn Fanatic Party #30

This post contains affiliate links.
Welcome to the Yarn Fanatic Party!

A place to share your projects, see what others have made, support one another, and even enter a yarn related giveaway.

My own crochet and knitting projects will be taking a back seat to some sewing this week.  I had the brilliant (or perhaps insane?) idea that sewing matching mother and daughter Easter dresses would be fun this year.  At this point Catherine's dress is mostly finished.  I haven't even started mine yet! 

Did you see this Granny Square Skirt?  It's so fun!  I love that beaded cuff that she's wearing.  There was also a toddler skirt linked up last week.  I love how versatile crocheting is!

Make sure that you check out my Facebook page, I will be sharing more of the fabulous yarn-y projects from the Yarn Fanatic Party over there!  

Have you seen my Easy Scalloped Headband?  It's an oldie, but a goodie.  Also be sure to check out Alexandra's cute ribbed diaper covers

I'm very excited that Christine from Sweet Potato 3 Patterns is today's sponsor.  She has some really cute patterns.  I particularly love the Tulip Flower Hat, the Heart Tattoo Hat, the Tool Belt, the Classic Sweater Dress, and the  Diagonal Delights Baby Blanket.

You can find her patterns on Ravelry, on Etsy, or on Craftsy

Three winners will get 
three patterns of their choice!

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.  The sponsor is responsible for prize fulfillment.

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.  I want this to be a supportive community of yarn lovers.  To help encourage this a new entry option has been added to the giveaway.)  
  • If you're not a blogger, but want to participate, feel free to upload a picture from Flicker!
