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 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'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've finished my Bulky Weight Sock Pattern and I'm looking for test knitters! These socks whip up super quickly and are perfect for chilly Spring mornings.
I just wanted to pop in and share my latest FO with you!
I wanted to stop in and share some of my potential knits for the New Year. (I know I'm a little late but better late than never!) I've got quite a bit of design work I want to focus on in 2019 but I won't let that stop me from working on some of these beautifully designed projects. Without further ado, here are the gorgeous patterns that have been calling my name lately.
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.
Hi guys! Long time no see!
Today I'm working on a set of merino/silk blend socks. I'm knitting these guys up in a beautiful orange color called Masala. The yarn I'm using is KnitPicks Gloss Fingering which is 70% Merino Wool, 30% Silk.
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.
