Yarn Fanatic Party #60

This post may contains affiliate links. 

It's a new week, which means it's time for a new Yarn Fanatic Party!  Is it getting cooler where you live?  It seems that many crocheters and knitters craft more during the cooler months.  Is this true for you?  Of course, now I live in Florida . . . so it's pretty constantly hot.

One of my favorite projects from last week's Yarn Fanatic Party is this Crochet Cape by Over the Apple Tree.  Isn't it simply adorable?

I have a couple of low entry giveaways that I'd like to make sure you saw.  They aren't yarn related, but so often crafters are multi-talented.  My Childhood Treasures is giving aways a doll pattern of choice and Oh Sew Kat! is giving away patterns for a complete doll outfit!  

I also have a yarn giveaway for you.  The September giveaway is being sponsored by Lion Brand and they are going to give one lucky winner four skeins of their Heartland yarn.  

Details and Fine Print: Void where prohibited. Must be 18+ to enter. US only. Facebook and other social media are not affiliated with this giveaway. The Philosopher's Wife is not responsible for prize fulfilment or shipment. You must respond to my email within 48 hours or a new winner will be drawn.

What have you created with yarn?  It could be something you crocheted, knitted, or anything that used yarn.  (This is the YARN Fanatic Party!) It can be a new project or an old one.  I can't wait to see what you've created!

The only rule is that everything you link to must be family friendly.

I would appreciate it very much if you:

  • Check out some of the other yarn goodies people have finished.
  • Leave comments here, there, and everywhere.  (Please, take a moment to visit at least one other blog and leave a comment.  I want this to be a supportive community of yarn lovers.)  
  • If you're not a blogger, but want to participate, feel free to upload a picture from Flicker!

  1. I want to sew and crochet outfits for dolls. I love the crocheted pattern for the over the apple tree cape. I would love the pattern for it.

  2. It's finally starting to cool down, if you can call it that, near philly. No more days in the 90s in the weekly forecast!

  3. Thanks for sharing! Great crochet ideas. May send my daughter the patterns and let her crochet away for my granddaughters AG dolls.


Thank you so much for taking the time to comment! I love reading each and every one!
