Happy St. Paddy's Day!

Today will be all about family, food, toe-tapping music, and everything Irish!  And of course, the annual IGK BOGO sale (details below!). But first up.....some of my faves...


I spent most of Saturday working on a new infinity scarf design. I made quite a bit of progress while watching a new series on amazon prime, Single Handed, a Law and Order meets the west coast of Ireland.  Love it!! Don't you like my new Knitifacts clover stitch marker?  I love these ones too.

A great week for Notre Dame women's basketball team, Big East Champs!! So proud of Skylar Diggins!



The doggies are ready :)

And of course, the 3rd Annual Irish Girlie Knits BOGO Sale through March 18! Because I love you guys and figure some of you may be partying too much today to see you have through Monday :)

First, head over to my Ravelry shop and enter the coupon code: lucky

Buy one pattern, get one free (lesser priced pattern will be free; Merrily and Sleepy Hollow Collections included, but other ebook collections excluded)!

Only includes patterns published by Irish Girlie Knits Designs in my Ravelry Shop (e.g., does not include patterns published by Kollage Yarns, BMFA).

Discount can be used more than once, but patterns must be purchased in multiples of 2 (e.g., 2, 4, 6...) at a time. 

I really wish my Sleepy Hollow Breakfast Blend sock pattern was ready for the sale, but I'm writing it up this weekend to get to my fabulous test knitter.

Breakfast Blend

Isn't it pretty in the lovely oatmeal colorway?  I promise to have a special sale price for you guys when it is ready!  And name...should I just stick with Sleepy Hollow sock?  Still haven't come up with anything else.  Thoughts??

 We will definitley be watching Darby O'Gill and the Little People today.  How about you?  Any favorite things you will be doing today?

Thanks for tolerating all the videos!  My dad and sister love just going through the songs all in one place.  Trust me, I resisted a few others from last year and the year before :)

Have a fabulous day and Happy St. Patrick's Day!! Everyone is a bit Irish today :)

Oh My Carrie! That sock is stunning. The design on the top of the foot reminds me a little bit of the Irish ring - what is that called? Happy St. Patrick's Day - hope your day is fabulous! g

The green clover is great with that pink! Can't wait to see the finished design. Have a great day!

Gaylen, did you mean the claddagh ring?

Carrie, your videos are one of the highlights of this day for me every year. Thanks for posting them. The new design looks interesting and that 4-leaf clover stitchmarker is a gem. Not only do you have something pretty to keep your place in your knitting, you carry a good luck charm with you everywhere you take it! Win-win!

The sock looks GREAT in that pale yarn. The lace pattern is so pretty :0)

The sleepy hollow pattern is gorgeous in a light color! I did a quick google search for character names from SLeepy Hollow and the main female character is Katrina Von Tassel. So how about Katrina?

Happy St. Patty's Day!

I guess I am going to have to find a copy of Darby O'Gill since it is no longer shown on TV on 3/17 (and why is that?) But hubby is happy cause he got to see his favorite-of-all-his-favorite=John Wayne movies tonight! And we started the day off being serenaded at the waffle shop by Danny Boy on the harmonic! Happy St Patrick's Day to you!

I think since you finished your socks so close to St. Patrick's day and they are made in the breakfast blend yarn they should be called Steel Cut Oats. You could even call them Irish Steel Cut Oats. :)

Happy St. Patrick's Day!

May the road rise up to meet you.
May the wind always be at your back.
May the sun shine warm upon your face,
and rains fall soft upon your fields.
And until we meet again,
May God hold you in the palm of His hand

I love the "Katrini" suggestion. I also think the pattern has a musical quality to it..even reminds me a bit of celtic harps...I have not done any searches...Just a thought. Looks beautiful! Can't wait for the release.

Deborah said...

So many good ideas! Definitely harp-like, so that idea seems to suit the pattern, and, yes, reminiscent of the claddagh ring shape. It also looks very much like a water lilly. I think there is another sock pattern on Ravelry called Sleepy Hollow, so a new name is called for. In any case, I can't wait for it to come out -- it really is charming. It has a William Morris Arts & Crafts style air about it.
