Erin Go Yarn

Written by Sarah. Posted in holiday, knits, want, yarn

St. Patrick’s Day is upon us, everyone! I have to admit, I’m not really a big participant in St. Patty’s Day festivities. I’m Irish and I like drinking but there’s something about chugging Guinness with a bunch of dudes from New Jersey wearing backwards green baseball hats in a crowded bar that turns me off of the whole holiday. Also, the arbitrary addition of green food coloring to beverages and breakfast foods really grosses me out. In fact, I have no idea what Erin Go Bragh means. And I just found out that Guinness has two n’s because I’ve never typed it before.

God, I sound like the Grinch who stole Patrick. I have a feeling my Irish card is about to be revoked.

This year, maybe I’ll get lucky and change my mind. I hope I can find a four leaf clover or even catch a leprechaun. And his pot won’t be filled with gold but maybe full of yarn!

1. Katia Hechizo in Gold with Gold
2. Lamb’s Pride Worsted in Sunburst Gold
3. MadTosh Pure Silk Lace in Gilded
4. Debbie Bliss Cotton in Gold
5. Sweet Georgia Tough Love Sock in Goldmine

And if his pot is full of gold, well I guess I’ll just have to buy the yarn myself. And some beer.

Are you planning on celebrating St. Patty’s Day to the max? Will you be wearing any green knits?

ps. Can you believe Ravelry hit 3 million members last week! Congrats to them!
