Yarn Fanatic Linky Party #24 - Expression Fiber Arts Yarn Giveaway

Welcome to the 24th Yarn Fanatic Link Party, and my seventh as co-host, alongside Rachel from The Philosopher's Wife

I completed my 14 Days of Valentine Inspired Crafts Self-Challenge, with the exception of the 14th day. Sad face. I had to take care of some things are home, and just haven't had a chance to get the last one up. It will be a plastic canvas project, and something that's good any time of the year, so it will still be a great one! I'm hoping to have it up either tomorrow or Wednesday.
The above image is the other half of my crafts, as I showed you the first half at our last party - Yarn Fanatic Link Party #23. If you've missed any, you can still find the main post of them and the other Valentine Inspired crafts, recipes, stories, decor, party ideas, printables, date night ideas and more - 14 Days of Valentine Inspired Craft Link Up.

Most Clicked:
From Left to Right:

Star Blanket from Hooks, Lines and Singers. This Star Blanket is just one of four projects found on this post. For all of the projects, she uses yarn from her stash - great motivation. Doesn't take much to complete some projects. Back to the blanket - fantastic job!

Firecracker Shrug from A Day in the Life. The colorway chosen for this shrug is a beautiful choice. Crystal gives us her tips for working this up to make it fit better. Overall, great shrug for those days you need a little extra coverage but don't want to put on a sweater.

Moogly Blog CAL Block #2 from Milena Places/My Places. Overall, the square looks great! I love the combination of all the bright colors. I really like to the green that she choose because it goes together well with the rest of the colors, is not overwhelming. It is a little different than the first square she made, but that's the beauty of working a sampler blanket - they can all be different! You are the artist, and you make it to your liking. Great job :)
My Yarn Favorites:
A little funky order, but I was having trouble getting this one to fit...

Top Center - Sophie's Universe CAL from Ladybug Dreams. Such a beautiful, soft colorway combination here. I love it. She also has some Moogly Blog 2015 CAL blocks on this post too - make sure to check them out!

Bottom Left - Red Dress for Doll from Tess and Annie. Inspired by a movie, brought to life by Tess. This red dress is gorgeous!

Bottom Center - Periwinkle Lace Shawl from Undeniable Glitter. I don't knit (yet) but I've added this to my "When I Learn to Knit" board because I LOVE this shawl! It is made with a nice soothing periwinkle color that shimmers. It looks lightweight and perfect for the upcoming Spring Season. Thanks for sharing this free knit pattern!

Right - Moogly Blog CAL Block 1 from Milena Places/My Places. This is such a nice, warm colored square. For anyone still facing snow, just glance over at this afghan block. Wonderfully done, and great color choices!

My Philosopher Favorite:
This Berries Blast Beanie looks so scrumptious!
I love the gorgeous colorway. It has a nice subtle change, in keeping with the berry inspired color changes.
The photos taken in the snow add a nice touch too :) Here in the Sunshine State, we don't experience as white.
Today, we had a gorgeous day in the 70's.
Anywho, grab some Red Heart Medley Yarn, your knitting needles and head over to the Philosopher's Wife to read more about this beanie!

This Weeks Giveaway is a continuation from last week, and sponsored by Expression Fiber Arts. They are giving away a skein of Celestial 'Resilient' Superwash Merino Sock Yarn to one lucky winner. If you haven't seen this yarn yet, make sure to check it out! The colorway is a gorgeous combination of silvery gray, black, pink and purple. This yarn is hand created, with no two skeins identical. One really great thing about this yarn is the "superwash" quality - meaning it can be machine washed without the worry of felting or the piece being ruined.
