Happy St. Patricks Day!

Saint Patrick’s Day (Irish: Lá ’le Pádraig or Lá Fhéile Pádraig), colloquially St. Paddy’s Day or simply Paddy’s Day, is an annual feast day which celebrates Saint Patrick (circa AD 385–461), the most commonly recognised of the patron saints of Ireland, and is generally celebrated on 17th of March.

Top of the morning to all you Irish Lads and Lassies!   To celebrate this Irish holiday and to get you into the spirit of the “green”, I thought I would share some fun things I found today!

First up is Blimey, a lovely 100%  superwash wool in worsted weight by Springtree Road.  This worsted weight yarn comes in skeins of 216yards (197 m/100 grams), is super soft and perfect for small projects,  like hats!

Grass is Greener by Sunflower Yarns is a rich blend of greens in a DK weight that comes in skeins measuring 231 yards (100 grams).  This DK weight yarn is 100% superwash wool and also perfect for small projects.

I also found a softer shade of green that is perfect for this holiday season, Old Shillelagh by Cakewalk Yarns.  This 2 ply wool fingering weight yarn is hand dyed and comes in skeins measuring 400 yards (100 grams) and is a blend of 80% superwash merino and 20% nylon.

I love colorwork and found the cutest hat that incorporates shamrocks!  Check out the Shamrocks Hat by Trisha Tatsch of Trish Designs.

Of course you need stitch markers for your knitting projects, so I found the perfect Irish set, the Saint Patrick’s Day Celebration Dance by Knit Cubby.
