Yarn Fanatic Linky Party #25 - Buttons and Things Giveaway

Welcome to the 25th Yarn Fanatic Link Party, and my eighth as co-host, alongside Rachel from The Philosopher's Wife.

This week I shared two yarn projects:
WIPS Debbie's Earthy Afghan - a Free Pattern coming soon!
Small Plastic Canvas Hearts - A Free Plastic Canvas Pattern & Tutorial

Most Clicked:

From Left to Right:

Nautical Knot Heart from Liz of Howling at the Moon. While this is just a display, it is a beautiful piece, and includes the basic idea of how you can create your own! I think this piece would make a lovely pendant, or brooch. 
Made from thread, you could even create a pair of earrings with these - 
think I just got an idea :)

Granny Squares and Stripes Cushions from Vrolijk by Leen. In this post, you'll find three different ways you can incorporate the ever-popular Granny Pattern. While this post does not include links to any patterns, it serves wonderful inspiration for us all.
My Favorites:
From Left to Right, Top to Bottom

Crochet Baby Gift Set from Laura of Over the Apple Tree. Laura did a fantastic job on this adorable little baby set! It includes a 7-Point Star Blanket, and a Bunny. View with her to find her sources. This makes the perfect gift at a baby shower, to a new mother, or any of the first few birthdays of a little one.

Strawberry Brooch from Green Rabbit Designs. After seeing this adorable little Strawberry Brooch, I immediately started looking around to see what other adorable items Vivienne has. She has made such Sweet Bunnies! Make sure you stop by and meet the Bunnies. Each tells their own story, and personality.

Knitted Sleeveless Sweater from Ana Love Craft. Ana did a great job with this sweater! It is GORGEOUS! And my favorite color :)

Sweet Little Baby Blanket with a Boy in Mind from Linda's Crafty Corner. This is a beautiful blanket made by Linda for charity - what a wonderful gift to share! I love how each round is a little different, but all tied together with by the color scheme. What great inspiration for us!

Crochet Afghan and Stenciled Pillows from Vintage Paint and More. I love the relaxing, beachy feel I get from this afghan. The almost basket weave pattern in this afghan sends visions of waves to mind. What a gorgeous afghan! And a lucky husband of Cathy's ;)

My Philosopher Favorite:
Rachel's been working on some adorable little booties for her littlest one.
I love the creamy color of these!

This Weeks Giveaway is sponsored by Buttons and Things. One winner will receive their choice of one set of buttons or magnets.
I LOVE these Crochet Buttons!
And while I don't Knit, these Knitting Buttons are adorable too! 
Great for crocheter's too, not too specific.
