Knitting Amazonia: Three Irish Girls Yarn

This Amazonia yarn from Three Irish Girls is my favorite ever skein of yarn.

Knitting. There is just something about the magic in taking some fiber and two sticks and turning it into clothing. I love creating things…but hate clutter. I am not interested in filling my house or life with knick-knacks.

Photography enables me to express my creative vision and create art without clutter (I don’t consider photos on my wall or in books clutter ๐Ÿ™‚

Knitting does the same thing. I get to create while making something useful.

And cozy.

This hat I knit for Jubilee out of Three Irish Girls Amazonia colorway. I do believe it is my all-time favorite skein of yarn. It is an alpaca blend and has a slight sheen to it. The colors are so very vibrant. I. Love. This. Yarn. It is spendy but oh-so-delicious. It is a delight in my hands and to my eyes.

I am just about to finish my first cable knit project ever (a baby hat for a sweet unborn baby in Australia). I am also working on a hoodie for Apollo and a basic raglan sweater…

How about you? Have you knit anything lately? Crocheted? Sewn? Leave a comment and feel free to link to your project if you’d like. I’d love to take a look!

  1. Theres something about fall that sends me into knitting mood. Finishing up the boarder of an enterlac blanket to donate at my church. Eagerly awaiting Tahki Zarina yarn to make an enterlac accented cardigan for my sweet little niece’s Christmas present (unless I miraculously get it done by her birthday 5 weeks from now).

      Yes, fall definitely brings out the knitting craving…though I usually manage to knit a bit all year long.

  2. I’m helping raise my grandchildren due to my daughter’s health problems. she gave birth to a beautiful baby boy 8 months ago but I forgot how taxing it is to raise little ones, so most of my energy goes to him and his brother these days. That said, I MISS KNITTING. Just last week I’ve picked up a project I started before the baby was born, and already I find myself much calmer. There’s something about that repetitive movement that clears my mind.

      Penny- That’s incredible that you are helping with your grandchildren! I barely have the energy at 37 ๐Ÿ™‚ I hope you find a few minutes to knit and relax. It really is theraputic.

      Anna- I loved seeing your projects. I had no idea you had those two blogs…on top of your regular blog. Thanks for sharing!

  3. I’m crocheting a baby blanket for my new goddaughter. I wanted to have it done in time for her baptism, but that didn’t happen. Trying to finish it before cooler weather comes to her part of the country, and before I give birth to my twins. It’s my first “fancy” crochet project-a shell stitch. It’s beautiful and so rewarding that I finally figured out how to create something so lovely with just a ball of yarn and a hooked stick.

      That is sweet of you to crochet for your goddaughter. And congratulations on your twins. That sounds so exciting!

  4. Beautiful. I am finishing two blankets/afghans and one pair of socks at present. Love to have something to do with my hands. Enjoy your crafting. It is essential to me and I am sure it is a precious part of your life too.

  5. Thanks for asking! I’ve been crocheting as many things as I can to raise money for my friend who is adopting two special needs children from Eastern Europe. I just finished a custom baby afghan for a little boy who has loved his lovie apart and needed a new one. My page is here: Since the Christmas season is almost upon us, I expect to be busier in the next few months. Then, next year, I’ll be watching my friend bring her children home!!
