Join us in my Ravelry group for the Opaline KAL. There’s great company and lovely prizes to motivate you to turn your WIZ into a FO. Details are via the link in my profile- plus there’s an introductory discount on the pattern too. 💜💚💙 #ambahobrien #ravelry #opalinewrap #missbabsyarn #igknitters #knittersoftheworld #knitlove


The Opaline Wrap is now available from Ravelry. Originally designed for the Aussie stop in @missbabsyarns world tour, I used white Opal for my inspiration and worked with Babs to create the beautiful Opaline gradient set. Babs also created a gorgeous second gradient option, using an image I took of Tasmanian Rock pools as her inspiration, swipe to the the inspiration images and the lovely Tidepool version. Find the pattern via the link in my profile. The yarn sets are currently available on the @missbabsyarns site and will also be at Rhinebeck. #ambahobrien #missbabsyarn #knitlove #ravelry #opalinewrap #kal #igknitters #rhinebeck2018 #knitknitknit #knittersoftheworld


Hey guys, I’m super excited to share that I’ll be joining the fun in New York this coming January at @vogueknitlive 🤩 I’m teaching lots of classes (everything from shawl shapes, beginner lace to working with colour and one of my favs; Scraptastic! As well as sharing my favourite lecture; Shawl love) VIP registrations have just opened with general registrations opening up sometime soon. I’m really looking forward to meeting some of you there 😍 #ambahobrien #vogueknitlive #vogueknitlivenyc2019 #knitlove #newyorknewyork #knittersoftheworld



This gorgeous #PopCropCardi knit up by @tot_le_matin_yarns in her own beautiful yarn 🙌 there’s still a day left to enjoy the introductory offer, details via the link in my profile 💫 #Repost @tot_le_matin_yarns ・・・ Here is the #popcropcardi of @ambahobrien! This is a very great pattern that I could test and will be on Ravelry at the end of the week. I used the TOT DK Donegal color NORMANDIE and the TOT DK 115 color GLOW (semi-solid) . Pour les françaises qui n'ont jamais tricoté en anglais, je trouve que ce patron est vraiment idéal pour essayer car il est vraiment très facile à comprendre. Il est facilement modifiable pour la longueur si l'original vous semble trop court. La seule modification que j'ai apportée sont les côtes torses.



Thanks for the Pop Crop Cardi love guys, this has been such a fun design project - particularly as it’s now such a practical item in my wardrobe. I have a special introductory order for the next few days and subscribers will find their special code in Friday’s newsletter. #PopCropCardi #ambahobrien #wrenandollie #igknitters #imakemyownclothes #handknittedwardrobe #knitlove

Beautiful @molly_odette 🙌💫💛 #neliawrap #knitlove #Repost @molly_odette ・・・ I knitted this shawl for my absolute favourite uni lecturer Jonnell 💛 Jonnell teaches the TESOL (teaching English to speakers of other languages) and intercultural understanding units. She is the most compassionate, inclusive and kind woman and I feel incredibly lucky to have had her as my mentor and teacher over the last few years. She is the kind of teacher I hope to be 💛 @bellajonnella 🌼 🌼 🌼 Pattern is Nelia by @ambahobrien 👌🏼|| Yarn is @fleeceartist_handmaiden #ambahobrien #knitlove #knittersoftheworld #fleeceartist #fleeceartistyarn


I’ve just added this set of crystal markers to my Etsy store, AMBAH. These sold out in a flash so when this set became available again I thought I’d let you know. There’s still some other sets listed there, including the last of the 💖 and lots of gorgeous shawl pins, enamel pins and silver broaches. The stitch markers make super cute charms too, swipe to see the different ways I wear mine. 💚 #ambahobrien #knitbling #igknitters #etsy #knitstagram #knitlove

This gorgeous Arya in a strong contrast caught my eye, beautifully knit up by @vividyarnstudio in her own lovely yarn #Repost @vividyarnstudio ・・・ Finished my Arya Shawl!!! So in love with it! I used my Swan colorway and Black semi solid. @ambahobrien #aryashawl #knittersofinstagram #vividyarnstudio #igknitters #indiedyer #yarnaddiction #yarn #knitting #ambahobrien #knitlove


🍊 hat finished. Boy pleased 🧡 for those who asked the colour is Push-Pop from @madelinetosh (Tosh DK) it’s pretty awesome. I used my Mendia Hat pattern, omitting the eyelet section for a plain rib version. He prefers non-slouchy hats. Swipe to see it in him. #ambahobrien #🍊#MendiaHat #knitlove #madelinetosh #igknitters #knittersoftheworld #knitknitknit


Added the finishing touches (i-cord & button) to this Sweet Sunglasses case, a sample for one of my VKL SF classes (My first colourwork) now I have a fresh case for the upcoming Summer :) These make a fast and fun gift knit and really are a great way to try stranded knitting in a wee project. I used up some of my yarn scraps for this, making it #scraptastic ! #ambahobrien #sweetsunglassescase #knitlive #knittersoftheworld #knitknitknit #igknitters


Ahhh, back home after a truly wonderful trip. Catching up on sleep and unpacking the pretties I squeezed in my case. Including this orange, with which I have immediately cast on a hat for my gorgeous boy, who leaves for a huge adventure in a week, something me-made to accompany him 🧡He loves orange at the moment and I’m knitting him a rib-only variation of the Mendia Hat. #ambahobrien #mendiahat #knitlove #madelinetosh #thelemonadeshop#spunrightround #igknitters #knittersoftheworld
