Happy August! I hope you're all enjoying the last couple weeks of Summer and are getting excited for the upcoming Pumpkin spice season. I've been finishing up lots of my Summer projects (pictures to come soon) and trying to soak up as much sunshine as I can before the grey skies roll in. I've also been test knitting the heck out of my Dandelion Stitch Cowl pattern. After a few revisions, it's finally ready to launch!
Introducing, my Dandelion Stitch Cowl pattern;
How's your Summer going? I've been spending most of my time working in my tiny garden and perfecting my custard based Ice Cream recipe. I'm still working on publishing some new original patterns but it's slow going, so I picked up a few July commissions to keep me busy while I'm plugging away.
The first commission I took on was a Fourth of July themed baby hat and bootie set.
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've got another finished commission to share with you today!
My Autumn's Weekend Shawl;
I finished my commissioned Fisherman's Rib Scarf!
My commissioned knee high socks are finally complete!
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.
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.
