Yarn Fanatic Party #57

Welcome to April's Yarn Fanatic Party!



Features
As always, there were so many creative projects linked up last month!  Did you see them all?  I especially love these sweet little shoes by My Places!


Giveaway
April's sponsor is Yarn Baby.  One lucky winner will receive one skein of the beautiful yarn pictured here.  It's a super bulky merino wool with a 20.5 micron.  It's 80 yards of squishable goodness.  I haven't had the pleasure of working with this yarn, but I'm assured it's super soft -- and I totally believe it.  This colorway is "Stormy".



Be sure to check out our sponsor's website and social media!


US residents only. Must be 18+. Void where prohibited. Facebook and other social media are in no way affiliated with this giveaway. Winner will have 48 hours to respond to my email, after that a new winner will be drawn. The Philosopher's Wife is not responsible for prize or for shipment.

  3. The Punky Brewster is amazing. Purple is my favorite color and I wear a lot of green. Together, they're fantastic. I'm also often drawn to thick-and-thin yarns. It's fun just to look at. Must feel amazing to the touch.
