Sorry I've been MIA for 2 months! These are crazy times we're living in and, unfortunately, I haven't been in a very writing/self promoting head space. That being said, I decided it was time to check back in and I have a wonderful new pattern to share with you!
I hope you're staying home and staying safe!
Alex and I have been continuing on our journey into experimental recipes (we just tried out vegetarian shepherds pie and some peanut butter stuffed chocolate chip bars, yum!) I've run out of puzzles to work on and have been deep diving into my coloring books. Alex has been hosting 1 or 2 Dungeons & Dragons online games a week! We're doing what we can to stay busy and keep sane while spending an unheard of amount of time at home. Luckily I've got a giant yarn stash to keep me busy. Speaking of...
Have you been keeping busy during the Great Pause?
We've been doing your basic quarantine routine; lots of exercise, puzzles, experimental cooking and trying not to drive each other completely crazy. (We might not be entirely succeeding on that last one.)
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 just finished a super fun, new commission. This is possibly the cutest tiny sweater I've ever knitted.
I have some new, exciting things in the shop today!
I've added some beautiful new knits and lots of wonderful original patterns!
If you're anything like me than you've already started planning the projects you want to work on in the New Year. I've compiled a roundup of the creations I plan to finish in the next 12 months!
I've finished my Mount Pleasant Tee!
This project is just for me so I'm extra excited to have him off the needles and ready to wear.
It's finally here!
My Pumpkin Patch Scarf Pattern is finished and ready for action!
You can find it HERE on Ravelry!
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.
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.
