Yarn Fanatic Party #45 - Time to get Yarn-y (hehe)

Welcome to the 45th Yarn Fanatic Link Party, and my 28th as co-host, alongside Rachel from The Philosopher's Wife.
This week I wrote a different version of my Round Facial Scrubbies in this Psychedelic Round Facial Scrubbies post. These came out so well, so quick and so easy that I will definitely be making several more sets as gifts and to put in my EyeLoveKnots Etsy shop.

Have you tried facial scrubbies? I just LOVE using them, and they are great to use in so many different ways like as make up removers, coasters, and dish scrubbies to name a few.

Most Clicked:
From Left to Right:

Crochet Clutch from Little Crochet. This is such a neat idea for a clutch! With link to pattern included, I want to make one in EVERY color scheme! I love the story behind creating this clutch. It really makes me get into the project itself, and feel the need to get the clutch just right to fit with the need to match a particular outfit. I am sure many of us can relate, as we have all been there at some point - I'd love to hear your stories :). Lovely little accessory!

Crochet Shawl II from Silvia's CRAFTS. This is such a BEAUTIFUL shawl! I love triangle shaped shawls. Pair that with the lovely coral color and this really makes such a beautiful garment/accessory for wearing out anywhere. You can pair with this a nice tee and some jeans (as shown), or put it over a dress to cover your shoulders and add a little pop to the ensemble. Link to pattern is included for us. And what about that "Egyptian Perle" used? That is very intriguing to me especially since Silvia mentioned that it was perfect for hot weather (which is what we experience year round here in the Sunshine State). Has anyone else used Egyptian Perle before?

EyeLoveKnots Yarn Favorites:

This week I seem to have so many favorites that I can't seem to fit them all in a small collection here. I wish I could feature them all (and I just might so don't tempt me ;) ), but I have decided to leave you with the link to our Yarn Fanatic Party #44 and encourage you to go back and revisit some of the awesome and inspirational projects that were shared with us. AND be on the look out because I will be sharing some project round up's combining all the Yarn Fanatic Parties I have been apart of so far. Your projects, patterns and stories are what make this a great event to be part of each week, and I am SO inspired by them all! Please continue to share your work and encouragment and support for others.
