Yarn Fanatic Link Party #18 - My First!

Happy 2015 to All!

I have been doing lots of planning and brainstorming for EyeLoveKnots for 2015. One of the things on my list was a linky party, but I didn't want to go it alone. I came across The Philosopher's Wife right after I started participating in linky parties, and I've been following along ever since - since her first Yarn Fanatic PartyIt's an honor to be able to co-host alongside Rachel.

I love the idea of a "yarn party" because it's a challenge - so I challenge you to get creative! Share with us, your yarn crafts - however you use it!

In celebration of the new year, Rachel of The Philosopher's Wife has sponsored a $5 Amazon Gift Code Giveaway.
You must be 18 years or older, and a US resident to enter. Void where prohibited. Winner will be notified by email by The Philosopher's Wife and have 48 hours to respond, or a new winner will be drawn.

Join the Party!

The Yarn Fanatic Party will begin every Monday, and run through Sunday night. You have all week and weekend to post your fantastic yarn related projects!

    1. Thanks for stopping by, Jenny! And I thank Rachel for allowing me to co-host this great party with her!
      Your boa wristers are very cute, however, based on your experience with them, I am not sure if I am up for the challenge just now.

  2. Alexandra,
    Thank you so much on the lovely invitation!
