#42 💜 Shamrockin’ St. Patrick’s Day!

Sweetie❤KNIT❤Shamrocks . . . a free little knitting pattern that felts like Spring!

Shamrockin' Spring bracelet with split (heart-shaped layout) yarn tails

Hello & Welcome to my 42nd episode of the KWH iPad Show! Today’s “St. Patrick’s Day” feature is a blogful compilation of my snowy shamrockin’ posts over the past few years 🙂

Our snow has all melted 😀 But mid-March is still early, so this morning’s light dusting of fresh flakes came as no surprise. Spring and the sounds of returning Canadian Geese are definitely in the air, though!

Yup… won’t be long now, before our earthy landscape turns a springy shade of green! March 2013 and March 2014 snowbanks were a different story—see above photos, compared with today’s few flakes. Then last year, the snow melted nearly as fast as this year! The weather was so mild that I happily “planted” a crop of handknit felted shamrock props before it all melted! Click here to view my iPad video.

That’s our normal wild ‘n crazy weather!

The video props include a few Shamrockin’ Spring Bracelets, along with 3-/4-leaf clovers. Unfortunately, my “luck” ran out and DIY instructions for the bracelets never got published in time, before my iMac died 😦 Now one year later, I’m still searching for that ol’ pot of iMac replacement gold at the end of the rainbow… And hoping all those how-to graphics I created are indeed safely locked inside my hard drive!!! :-/

For now, click the following links and see how to knit your own patch of shamrockin’ clover and/or tiny hearts:

    • Thanks Jean 🙂 Can’t beat a shamrockin’ compliment like that—straight from Ireland! ❤

      Our leaves generally begin to bud by Earth Day. But the snow melted early, so who knows?! Such a treat to go outside in a t-shirt, before spring even hits the calendar!!! 😀 ♥ ❤

    • Hi Angela 🙂 Yup! This flock has apparently been dyed a variety of colours to mark different causes/festivities 😀 ♥ ❤
