Hey there! Do you feel lucky? St. Patrick’s Day is coming up… The days are getting longer… And SPRING is in the air! Equinox is still over a week away, but half our snow is already melted! And with this weekend’s double-digit +Cº forecast, the rest will soon follow!!! A welcome change, since springtime around here tends to arrive rather late 😀

Some people say shamrocks are “lucky”, but for me they are simply a sweet sign of spring. I’m hoping this post will inspire you to knit ‘n felt my most recent design for a shamrockin’ fun-felted bling bracelet. It will surely have you feeling like spring 🙂

To get started, knit 4 Sweetie♥KNIT♥Hearts from feltable wool—leaving extra-long tails measuring approx 30″/75 cms in length. Sew all 4 of the Sweetie♥KNIT♥Heart points together. Secure all yarn tails on WS (wrong side). Then separate the yarn tail plies.

Okay… that’s all for now, but I’ll be back asap with photos demonstrating the rest of this “how to” for you! Then we can all wear handmade shamrockin’ bling this spring!  In the meantime, here’s Cary Grant in a movie clip from “Mr. Lucky” 1943. Watch now, as he demonstrates how real men knit 😉
