Saint Patrick's Day

ireland collage
Happy Saint Patrick's from a girl whose ancestors come from Armagh and Bandon in Cork County!

I've got quite a few projects going on right now. I've started the Great American Aran Afghan. That will be a long, ongoing project but hopefully a wonderful heirloom for the girls. I am still working on those d&*n socks for my brother in law, that were due for Christmas. Socks just aren't giving me any joy lately. I've finished 1 more 76 stitches hat and am working on one last one. I still have some Manos left over(2 full skeins, 3- 1/2 skeins) so I'll felt it into something. Any suggestions? I'll be starting my Big Bag this week also.

I did finish one project for a Red Sox Spring Training Swap I'm doing on Ravelry...
yankee knitting doll
First Yankees/Red Sox game of this year is tomorrow. I also have some Red Sox and knitting goodies for her as well.

I will leave you with this and this.

Have a Bailey's and wear some green!

Good luck with the Voodoo doll -- it's adorable. I hope it does the job (ok, you can tell I'm not from NY).

I'm your Big Bag KAL/Swap partner... just checking in. I'm working on your bag. It's about 50% completed, I'd say. You gave me a lot of latitude with color choices, so I hope you like what I chose. I'm having a good time working with them. :)

Good luck with the preparations for moving.

Hey Lisa! :-) I posted something...or sent a message...to your Facebook account yesterday. I confess I'm pretty useless at navigating those sites. But I LOVE a blog where I can actually SEE if my message goes through. ha ha! Anyway, I wanted to say that I like your banner up above, and thought it looked like someone who is happy to return to the oceanfront ;-) love,,tanya
