Happy St. Patrick's Day!

Big doins in the O'Connor family tonight! Everyone will be wearin the green. Got the soda bread baked and the whiskey cake too. There are two cups of irish whiskey in that sucker! Look out! The fumes alone will kill you! My sister is in charge of the corned beef and cabbage (yum). We had a St. Patrick's Day limerick contest on the family blog and all entries will be read aloud tonight. It should be fun.

So, on the knitting front I purchased the yarn today for my clapotis. This was supposed to be for a gift. The more I think about that yarn and how nice it would look with my camel coat, the more I think that this first one could be for MOI. I am so excited! The yarn is gorgeous. There's no other word for it. It is green "Wool In The Woods" rayon. I'll post a photo as soon as I get it. My LYS lady is being kind enough to wind it for me and I'm picking it up tomorrow. Interesting that I chose green yarn on St. Patricks Day. I never gave it a thought until the LYS proprietor mentioned it. Well, it's appropriate! Erin Go Braugh!
