I hope you're doing well in times of uncertainty.
Alex and I have been in full quarantine mode here in the Pacific Northwest. So far we've gotten to know our Wii games a lot better, spent a lot of time hanging out with Yoga with Adriene on YouTube and done a ton of experimental cooking. Today we took naps and made a huge batch of double chocolate ice cream.
I have another finished project to share with you!
My partner Alex asked me to make him a cozy throw blanket for his new office at work. After much research and vacillating over whether to have a cabled blanket or a non cabled blanket we decided on Lucia Ruiz de Aguirre's Nora Baby Blanket pattern.
I finally finished Hannah's Sweater!
Sorry I've been MIA!
I thought I'd stop by and share with you one of my WIP's.
I'm working on a gorgeous top pattern called Mount Pleasant by Pip & Pin aka Megan Nodecker.
I have a finished project to share with you!
My Vianne Cardigan!
Happy August! I hope you're all enjoying the last couple weeks of Summer and are getting excited for the upcoming Pumpkin spice season. I've been finishing up lots of my Summer projects (pictures to come soon) and trying to soak up as much sunshine as I can before the grey skies roll in. I've also been test knitting the heck out of my Dandelion Stitch Cowl pattern. After a few revisions, it's finally ready to launch!
Introducing, my Dandelion Stitch Cowl pattern;
How's your Summer going? I've been spending most of my time working in my tiny garden and perfecting my custard based Ice Cream recipe. I'm still working on publishing some new original patterns but it's slow going, so I picked up a few July commissions to keep me busy while I'm plugging away.
The first commission I took on was a Fourth of July themed baby hat and bootie set.
I'm back with a new project to share! I don't know if you follow Melody Hoffmann (@bmandarines on Instagram) but she has released a lovely set of mystery/knit along sock patterns called The Simple Sock Collective. I've just finished the first pair!
I just wanted to pop in and share my latest FO with you!
I've got another finished commission to share with you today!
My Autumn's Weekend Shawl;
AFA was launched in 2015 as a craft and lifestyle blog. It has since morphed into a full time knitting blog! Here you'll find pattern and yarn reviews as well as a smattering of recipes and original patterns.
