Yarn Fanatic Party #53

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!


There were so many beautiful projects linked up to last month's Yarn Fanatic Party.  I hope you took some time to look around.  I wish I could feature everyone, but alas, I can't.

This Red Wine Scarf has a great combination of color and whimsy.

Don't forget to stop by my co-host's blog, EyeLoveKnots!  She just released a free pattern for a lovely cowl.  She also has lots of fun details about the previous Yarn Fanatic Party, such as who got the most clicks.


November's sponsor is The Rainy Apple Shoppe.  She is generously giving away a skein of her Christmas colorway, Tanenbaum, to one lucky winner.  The winner will be able to chose between worsted or fingering weight.  The worsted is 220 yards/100 grams of 100% Peruvian Highland Wool and the fingering is 463 yards/100 grams of super wash merino/nylon 75/25.  Either would be amazing in my opinion.

This yarn really looks like a Christmas tree, doesn't it?

Be sure to check out the shop on Instagram and Facebook.

Fine Print and Details: Giveaway ends November 310 2015 at 11:59 pm EST. Entrants must be 18+ and US residents. The winner will be picked via Rafflecopter, so use the form below to enter.
