Yarn Fanatic Party #59 - Week 3 - Lion Brand Sponsored Giveaway

Welcome to the 59th Yarn Fanatic Link Party (3rd week), alongside Rachel from The Philosopher's Wife.

If you are a regular follower of EyeLoveKnots, you know that I have been on a break for the last two months and I want to thank everyone for all of the support I received with this much needed break! It was truly overwhelming, and makes me appreciate this community a whole lot more.
I am back now, and have some great projects lined up for you beginning September 22nd - the first day of fall! Until then (and after), I will be here sharing the Yarn Parties with you on Monday afternoons.

I have not been completely quiet since my last post - I have still been working my contributions for The Stitchin Mommy. Find them below, alongside the other projects I have shared since my post about the Yarn Fanatic Party taking the summer off.

Have you tried Lion Brand's Heartland Yarn yet? It's been out for a while now. It's a beautiful yarn collection with colorways inspired by nature. It's a soft, 100% acrylic yarn. I have worked with it a few times, and found that it wears and washes well and keeps it's soft feel.
You may remember when I shared my Crochet Pattern Review on the Cable Twist Hat. I used one skein of Heartland for this hat in the Hot Springs colorway - a medium purple.
Five free crochet patterns from Lion Brand that use Heartland Yarn - 
on my list of things to do!
