Happy Green Beer Day!

Are you wearing green today? I hope so! Although I didn't drink any green beer over the weekend, I did spend some quality time with a good cuppa joe, some fine reading material, the NASCAR race and knitting yesterday. I made progress on my Clapotis and even got to drop the first stitch!

For those of you who really want to show off your kniting bling-bling, Clappy is for you. Check this out... stitch marker bling galore!

Despite the much too damn quickly approaching March 31 deadline for the Clapotis KAL, I knit a few rounds on these pink socks (using the Peace Fleece pattern from the Knitting for Peace book)...

Then, in keeping with my latest pink theme, I cast on the Lop-Eared Bunny from the latest Creative Knitting. I'm using Sirdar Snuggly Baby Bamboo, which I purchased a few weeks ago on that sick/snowy day thousand mile trip trek down to Hub Mills with Joanne. Pinkie will be a birthday present for a special little princess who will soon be turning 2.

I had a lovely surprise in my mailbox this morning.... a belated birthday gift for my Zeus! It was from Kathy, who I got to spoil in the Defeat the Winter Doldrums swap. She sent an adorable Olive stuffed squeaky toy and a really cute notecard. The pic isn't so great (camera phone), but you get the idea. Thank you Kathy, that was so extremely sweet of you!


Enjoy your green beer, corned beef and cabbage (not sure I'm really 60%, but yes, I am a wee bit Irish... Irish & Portuguese, which could explain a lot... )!





You're 60% Irish

You're very Irish, and most likely from Ireland.
(And if you're not, you should be!)

I really was just going to send you a thank-you note, but since it was Zeus' birthday, Lucy nudged me into getting him a gift. I think some dog toys, like the olive, are really designed to make people smile when they see them in a dog's mouth. Because who ever heard of a dog getting excited over a pimento-stuffed olive? However, Lucy loves hers and I hope Zeus will too!

The Clappy looks great. Love the stitch markers.

Heh, heh, heh. Giant olive. Now he needs a bathtub shaped like a huge martini glass! Eighty percent Irish here... sounds about right.

75% here, which is probably close to accurate...

March 31 deadline?! Hmmm... I might make that. Why didn't that register before?!
