Things have been crazy lately! I've been super busy with Holiday prep and crafting and planting new plants and working on my Super Secret Christmas Project. I thought I'd share a quick round up of some of the adventures, and of course, the recipes, I've been working on this last week.
'Tis the Season of Turkeys and Yams and Green Beans swimming in Cream of Mushroom Soup! Problem is, I don't like any of those things! Traditional Thanksgiving foods are not my bag. I remember a few Thanksgivings growing up where a young, Vegetarian Ashley got to enjoy the Holiday with a big plate full of Mashed Potatoes and Garlic Bread, Mmm, carbs. Not exactly a well rounded meal.
I shared with you in October my current knitting projects. Well, it's November and they're still my current knitting projects! I thought I'd share some pictures of the progress I've been making and some of the challenges I've faced along the way.
So far my sweater/blanket project (what I've been referring to as a Slanket) is just some giant rectangles. I find myself missing the traditional sweater shaping; increases and decreases. This project is simply broken rib stitch for ages and ages and ages!
I love pizza. You might have figured that out by such posts as Vegetarian Sausage Calzones and DIY Pizza Charms. I can't get enough of the stuff.
This recipe makes wonderful deep dish skillet pizzas that will blow your mind with deliciousness. The dough recipe is your simple, basic crust BUT the Cast Iron Skillet is where all the magic happens.
November is here! Time to start planning my Thanksgiving menu and putting away my spooky Halloween decorations! I hope you guys are enjoying the colder weather and the Holiday vibes as much as I am. I'm still working on putting together the ultimate fleece lined Fall wardrobe but in the meantime I wanted to share this fun shawl I made with you. I knitted this shawl during the Summer and now it's finally cold enough out to wear it.
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.
