‘Tis the Season of Green, of Greening, and New Growth

St. Patrick’s Day is right around the corner.  When I was growing up this holiday wasn’t celebrated unless one was Irish (or that’s what I was told).  Not being Irish, St. Patrick’s Day came and went in my family.  These days everyone is Irish on St. Patrick’s Day and March is the month of green.

I do love green even though I cannot wear most shades of it.  I think teal or turquoise are my only choices, but it’s the spring greens, the mint greens, and yellow greens that I love so much.  Put those colors next to my face and it’s not a good look to say it nicely.  Put those colors on my fair skinned Talyssa and magic happens.  She is truly a gal that looks wonderful in green.  So naturally, she was my choice to receive something new during this 2015 season of green.

Talyssa wanted a little posy to hold. I made her this one with crocheted blossoms and used macrame to combine all of “stems” together. I also wanted to bring more pink into the outfit.

Happy St. Patrick’s Day

No, I don’t have a speck of Irish heritage in me and I look awful in the color green, but I couldn’t help but get into the Irish spirit this year.  My Pukipuki, Sugar, is here to spread St. Paddy’s Day joy to you all.  By the way, I think she looks beautiful in the color green.

This past week I spent quite a bit of time learning some new techniques and discovering some new sites.  I practiced a new lace pattern, discovered Craftsy, listened to a new knitting podcast, and perused Ravelry and Pinterest for knitting inspiration.  As a result, I found this adorable Blythe hat pattern from Maggie at Parasol Doll and knit up my version for Pukipuki.  Thank you, Maggie.

Sugar wanted to wear her new outfit while looking for all things lucky and Irish.  My little charmer found her own lucky charm.

Happy St. Patrick’s Day!
