Starting the Wearing O the Green
My girlfriends had the Corned Beef and Cabbage at our knitogether yesterday. I'm not a fan. I can eat it, but I don't crave it. Do you? My mom always made hers in the crock pot. I like green icing on cake, however, and on cupcakes and tea breads and coffee cakes.
Grace was my secret St. Pat's swapper!! I'm sitting at the end of the rainbow, let me tell you. Just look at the size of that ball of yarn with goodies hidden inside it. I put the little Happy Feet ball next to it for comparison. I'm casting on for Irish socks today with it. I'll let you know what the leprechaun hid inside the yarn ball as I knit on.....
Finally, as a big knitting venture, I've cast on for the YarnMarket Cotton Twirl Ruffled Shawl. So far so good. I need to use a row counter but I stayed on track during all of American Idol last night.
This means I have 3 brand new WIPS. I love new WIPs.
Have you started your St. Pat's celebrating yet?
