Shamrock bunting day!

It's that time of the year again!




When I wear my silly green sock with shamrocks on, put on my dainty silver shamrock that my aunty brought from Ireland, make the best mash potato, have a little bit of a teary smile when thinking of my sisi living far away on that beautiful green isle, have a shot of Jameson then,  take the Irish flag to school and read the kids the story of St Patrick, and show them a real clover, and have them searching for four-leaved clovers in their backyards in the afternoon.

Going on a Guinness search now-now, to make Jack Monroe's deliciously looking Guinness brownies.

And, as usual - a tiny shamrock bunting - this one adorning the neck of the leprechaun the Gr 1 teacher with the Irish name dug out of her store room this morning :-)


Easiest, pretty garland pattern here

I made this bunting with Moya Yarn's organic cotton in Apple, available from Yarn in a Barn and Scaapi

A roundup of more St Patrick's crochet patterns is available at Crochet Concupiscence.

Last year's St Patrick's post here.


Happy Paddy Day. 

Hope you find a pot of gold!
