Yarn Fanatic Party #32

Welcome to the Yarn Fanatic Party!
This is a place to share your projects, see what others have made, support one another, and even enter a yarn giveaway.

I've been crocheting a bit of amigurumi lately (be on the lookout for a giraffe, an elephant, and a pod of whales this week!), so I immediately was drawn to this "Horsy" by Marmarel.

I also really love this adorable crochet bunting!  The colors just draw my eye in.  (The room that these are displayed in is really beautiful too -- and such a cool staircase!)  The link to the free pattern was broken for me, but I'm sure it wouldn't be too hard to find it!

Did you see the Sweet Fantasy Granny Square Baby Blanket that EyeLoveKnots crocheted?  She includes the free pattern in her post.

It's a yarn Giveaway!
Have you heard of Tinted Tangles?  Krysta is the brains and talent behind this awesome little yarn shop.  Each skein is imbued with its beautiful color in her kitchen.  I think my favorite line in her entire bio is "I am just a girl trying to pursue a dream job".  I'm super excited that she is sponsoring a $25 shop credit giveaway!  I also will be reviewing a skein of her yarn, so be sure to be on the look out for that!

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.  A quick note to my international friends: I know many of you are disappointed that these giveaways are limited to US only.  The problem is that there are hundreds of rules and laws regarding how giveaways are run.  It can be very easy to accidentally break the law when international policy comes into play.  I simply wish to keep everything as legal as possible, and for now at least that means limiting these giveaways to US entrants.  I do hope that you still participate in these Yarn Fanatic Parties and that someday there might be a giveaway that you can enter!

Time to link up your projects!
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.  I've been crazy busy lately, and not able to comment on everyone's links, but I will try to comment on everyone's this week!)
