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