Anastasia Blaes

Anastasia Blaes

Anastasia’s obsession with yarn began almost before she learned to read. Taught to crochet by her grandmother at six years old, her first original design was the infamous Barbie tube top. She soon after taught herself to knit and began designing for herself. Discovering that others were interested in her original designs, she sold finished garments locally and in a baby boutique in Chicago. Anastasia has co-authored two books: The Knitter’s Guide to Yarn Cocktails and The Crocheter’s Guide to Yarn Cocktails with Kelly Wilson. She has designed for several major yarn companies and various magazines, as well as contributing to 101 Designer One-Skein Wonders by Judith Durant. Anastasia is a member of TNNA, CGOA, TKGA and her local knitting guild, the Prince William Purlers.
