Yarn Fanatic Party #54

This post contains affiliate links. 

This post is subject to updates.

Welcome to the first Yarn Fanatic Party of 2016!  I hope that you all had a joy filled Christmas and that the new year is going well.  As always, 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!

I haven't been able to share much of my recent crafting here on the blog because so much of it involved Christmas surprises!  However, now that most have been gifted I can start sharing.  I do have to confess, there's more than one project that either had to get scrapped or isn't quite finished.  Whoops.


I love seeing what you have created!  There were so many beautiful projects linked up at the last party.  It's always hard to pick a few to highlight.  I really love this Northern Lights Dress by Ginx Craft.

Jesse, from Our Side of the Mountain, finished an absolutely lovely blanket for her son.


We are starting off 2016 with a great giveaway!  There are multiple prizes for multiple winners.

Grand Prize:
Set of Haven for Hands  Crochet Hooks and a One Year Subscription to Happily Hooked Magazine

Two Runners Up:
A Three Month Subscription to Happily Hooked

I've raved about Happily Hooked before.  It's honestly the only crochet magazine I read.  I'm also super excited that my Yarn Fanatic Co-Host, Alexandra, has been featured in the magazine!  How cool is that?  She also had the opportunity to review a set of the hooks we're giving away, be sure to check it out!

Buy these hooks at Amazon now!

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.
