Yarn Fanatic Party #52


This is a place to share your crafty projects that use yarn, see what others have made, support one another, and sometimes even enter a giveaway!

Feature
I wish I had learned to knit before Catherine was born, because then she would have a dress like this adorable one!


I'm always a sucker for a cute granny square pattern, like this one from my co-host EyeLoveKnots.


Giveaway
Our October giveaway sponsor is Chaleur Hand Dyed Yarn.  She's also on Facebook, and I just love when her yarn photos come through my feed.  I've been following Jessica for a while now and I think you would enjoy following her as well.  Also, just so you know, anyone who signs up for the Chaleur Hand Dyed Yarn Newsletter gets a coupon code for 15% off their next purchase.


Don't you just love this yarn?  It's named "Caribbean Waves". It's a sport weight yarn, 75% superwash wool/25% Nylon, with 274 yards/100 grams just waiting for your creative input.  This wonderful prize has a $22 value.



Fine Print and Details: Giveaway ends October 31, 2015 at 11:59 pm EST. Entrants must be 18+ and US residents.   (Yarn will only be shipped within the US.) The winner will be picked via Rafflecopter, so use the form below to enter. The winner will have 48 hours to claim the prize. Void where prohibited. The Philosopher's Wife is not responsible for prize shipment or fulfillment.

  13. It's so difficult to choose a favorite! The colors in hand dyed yarn have a special, rich beauty that is hard to find! the very slight variations in shading make them so very special.
    I love the Hand Dyed Wool Yarn - Frozen Icicle. And I also really like the one you show above - the Caribbean Waves - it does bring back warm memories of the beautiful waters of St. Thomas!

  34. I just love this Caribbean Waves colorway! I know the Giveaway is over, but I may have to put this on my Wish List....
    I am aiming to start purchasing for me again after March 1 - after all my Christmas and trip expenses are paid off!
    So many pretties to look at - and to drool over...
    And this yarn just says "Lovely and Soft" when I look at it...it is reminiscent of the color of the water in the Caribbean! How I'd love to go back.
