I thought I'd try something new! I'm going to host a week long Auction over on my Ashweather Facebook page. All products in the Auction have been handmade by me!
Did you notice the blog got a little facelift?
I've streamlined my Categories section, added a shop page and condensed my blog posts so any info you're looking for will be easier to find.
Sorry I've been MIA!
I always have a little existential crisis around my Birthday and question all my life choices and the direction of my business. It's a tradition.
I have made time, in the midst of all my brooding, to cast on a fantastic pair of lace Summer Socks. The pattern I'm using is Arabesque Socks by Jessica Gore.
I just finished knitting a Top Secret Birthday gift!
Now that it's been delivered I can share it with you;
I'm working on another selfish knit from my #makenine2018 list!
I'm knitting the pattern Iris by Melody Hoffman!
Is it getting toasty where you are? It's getting warm here in the PNW. I don't know about you but when the weather heats up I like to switch to lighter yarns and smaller projects. I've compiled a little list of my Summertime favorite yarns, give these a try and let me know which ones you dig!
I wanted to share this lovely scarf pattern with you!
The pattern, written by Lauren Sanchez, is based on a scarf featured in the mini series Hatfields and McCoys. This project was commissioned by a friend through my Etsy shop. Here it is beautifully modeled by my adorable partner, Alex.
I've got a few new things up in the Etsy shop today!
These projects have been finished for a while but somehow I never got around to listing them! First and foremost, I have a new skein of hand dyed yarn in the shop. He's a Superwash Merino/Nylon blend fingering weight. Perfect for your Spring knitting needs.
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.
