6 Afghan Patterns to Get Ready for Fall: This Week in Stitches

This week in stitches features…

  • 6 Afghan Patterns to Get Ready for Fall
  • Quick Update
  • The Subscriber of the Week?
  • and all of this week’s stitches

If you just can’t wait for This Week in Stitches each week, and you want even more fun, interesting links than the few we highlight here, follow @newstitchaday on Twitter or join our Facebook page. It’s painless. Really.

This is a quick, out of the ordinary update this week. No video version this week or next since we’re heading to San Diego for the week on a family vacation. Also no show and tell or subscriber of the week this week. We just didn’t have time to get through everyone’s great work. There won’t be any new videos this week. We’ll be back on Monday, July 30th.

Don’t forget to answer our question of the week at the bottom of this post!

Welcome to Our New Email Subscribers

We had another great week with 277 people coming on board the New Stitch a Day email list! Great job to all of you who are telling your friends about the site on Twitter, Facebook, Ravelry, Knitting Paradise, Pinterest, and at your local yarn stores. Keep up the good work!

Show and Tell!

We’ve been busy getting ready for our week off here at NSAD Headquarters, and didn’t get to filter through all the great photos you all sent in over the past week. Don’t worry, we did get them and will still use a lot of them next week.

Subscriber of the Week

Again we didn’t get to pick a winner this week but we will have one (or two…) next week!

If you want to be considered for the subscriber of the week, send some photos of your work to johnny[at]newstitchaday[dot]com or respond to any of our newsletters.

You can also tweet a photo to us on Twitter or with the hashtag #newstitchaday on Instagram.

Follow Us on Pinterest!

A lot of you jumped on board last week, so thank you for that! We’ve been hard at work putting together some great NEW boards for you to give you a little yarnspiration. It’s also a great way to remember and share your favorite tutorials with your friends!
