Yarn Fanatic Party #36

Welcome to the Yarn Fanatic Party!  Sorry I'm a little late this week -- we had a very busy past couple of days.  My husband's youngest sibling graduated from college on Mother's Day, and we didn't make it home until Monday afternoon.  In just under 48 hours we managed to drive over 1,000 miles, attend a graduation, enjoy an after party complete with a mini-hike to a waterfall and a cook out, and we were thankful to be able to crash with generous family members during our travels.  Now we're home again.

Did you see all of the fabulous yarn-y projects linked up last week?  I really do hope that you take the time to check out a few of them.  Everyone has so much talent!  I'm in love with this Giraffe that Natalie made.  You simply have to go to her blog and check out all of the details.

Visit Alexandra, my co-host, to see if you had one of the most clicked projects!

Giveaway time!

Have you seen the beautiful yarn from String Theory?  Isn't the name clever?  I have to say that was what attracted me to the shop in the first place.  Tanis, the owner, lives and creates in Maine. She has a decade of yarn dying experience, and draws upon a life long love of the fiber arts when creating new yarns for us to use.

Be sure to connect with String Theory Hand Dyed Yarn, Inc. so that you don't miss anything!

One lucky winner will receive a $60 Gift Certificate to use at String Theory Hand Dyed Yarn, Inc.

Details and Important Information: Must be 18+ to enter. US only. Void where prohibited. Winners 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!

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.

  2. What a fantastic giveaway, I'd love to make some more some socks with Bluestocking in Delphinium, or a cardigan out of Caper in Elderberry. So many delicious colors to work with!
