Yarn Fanatic Party #37

It's time for another Yarn Fanatic Party!  How are you doing this week?  Our community pool opened last week, and we've already been down to enjoy it quite a few times.  I love that they don't wait for the holiday weekend if the weather warrants a pool opening.  I've also been busy knitting this past week.  I can't wait to show you everything that I've been working on and I can't wait to see your projects!

Features From Last Week

This Stitch Sampler Blanket by Darlene caught my eye.  What a cool crochet project! I'm sure her daughter will love it.  (And it looks like a great stash buster -- especially for all of those "leftovers"!)

I also really like this cute little knitted sweater.  The row of buttons down the side is just adorable!

As always, be sure to check in with my co-host Alexandra to see if you were one of the most clicked projects!

Giveaway time!

I have been loving my yarn from String Theory.  I will have some pictures for you as soon as the camera battery finished charging.  I am working on a Traveling Woman Shawl for me and I think I will use either the blue or green goodness to make an In Threes Cardigan for Catherine.

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.
