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.
I wanted to stop by and share this lovely sweater pattern I've been working on this week. The pattern is called Illas Cies and it's by Anne Hanson.
I've been working on a project just for me this month!
As you might have noticed by now, I'm completely obsessed with Alpaca yarn. So, when KnitPicks came out with their new Simply Alpaca yarn I jumped at the chance to make something warm and squishy!
It's finally finished!
Kecia's Favorite Sweater is done!
As some of you might know, I've been working on recreating my cousin Kecia's very favorite (but very well worn) sweater. I've been knitting this guy since August, so I'm pretty excited to finally have him off the needles!
Is anyone else compiling a list of projects they'd like to knit over the New Year? I doubt I'll be able to get to all these beauties but here's a little preview of what I'd like to create this year;
#1.) Illas Cies by Anne Hanson:
I hope y'all had a fantastic holiday season!
We had a quiet Christmas at home with our kitties. Alex got me a waffle press so I'm pretty sure we'll be having some form of waffles with every meal for the next few months. Heh.
Happy Thanksgiving week!
I've been impatiently waiting to share this wonderful blanket with you! It took me approximately 100 years to make! (6 months!) I created it as a wedding gift for my friends Jen and Josh who got married recently in Las Vegas.
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.
This week I'm working on something a little different from my usual fiber projects.
I've been asked by a friend to create a custom set of paintings for him using some of his favorite quotes. I've decided to approach this project from a fantastical perspective. I'm creating a set of pseudo-medieval shield paintings with nonsensical heraldry.
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.
