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.
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.
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.
