Happy Day to Flaunt Your Green Yarn Stash!

I got this Green Sock KAL in the bag. Hearting the green sock yarn.

A Piece of Vermont
Real Vermonter sock yarn
70% mohair/30% Romney and Corriedale

Yarn Pirate
Bluefaced Leicester sock yarn
100% wool

Yarn Botanika
Radiance merino/tencel sock yarn
100% wool fortified with tencel
Spring Greens

The beer selection for this Paddy's day. I like my beer like I like my yarn: indie-style and mixed up in small batches.

Lucy and Schroeder continue to mingle together harmoniously.

Happy Day of Leprechauns, Shamrocks, and All Things Green!

I just went and bought corned beef, cabbage and potatoes at the store, but I forgot beer! Good lord--how could I betray my heritage like that?

Lucy Hearts Schroeder looks fantastic.

The LLS (I'm taking the liberty of abbreviating) scarf is really coming along. i love how the color combo is turning out.

I'm with you on the beer. Mmm, beer.

PS - I'm gonna get cracking on your box bag this weekend. So sorry for the holdup!

Happy St. Patty's!

Hurrah for local beer! Have you been to Fiume (45th and Locust, above Abyssinia)? They stock the best selection of Philly area micro-brews in town (and I used to work there). You should go some time. Judging from your beer selections, you'd love it!

The scarf looks amazing!!!

Mu husband and I have put away a lot of Troëgs in our time! Love the gorgeous green microyarn. Happy St. Patrick's day...(my mum is English and she would turn three shades of purple--or orange?--hearing me say that!)

Such lovely green sock yarns! A really nice variety of shades. We went to a corned beef and cabbage dinner on Wednesday. Very yummy. Having spent 5th-8th grades in a Catholic school where I was the only kid without an Irish last name (bad, me!), I became a little jaded on the whole St. Patrick's Day holiday (but the beer drinking is good!). Especially since my patron saint, St. Brendan is even more Irish than Patrick, and no one at my school had a clue as to who he was (sailed to North America hundreds of years before the Vikings--so much cooler than driving snakes out of Ireland, as far as legends go). But I wish no ill will to St. Patrick's Day celebraters! I just think they should add St. Brendan's Day (May 16th). ;)

I went to the store with the kid this morning and thought "geez, people are sure wearing a lot of green today...hey, wait a minute.."

Lovely green yarn.

Am I the only blogger out there who totally forgot it was St. Patricks?
Apricot Beer - how is it?
The yarn you shared is lovely.

I used my Earth Spirit soap this morning - I love it! The smell is invigorating and it is so moisturizing.
I will be back for more.

i somehow didn't get around to beer or irish food on St Patrick's Day. I'm not sure what happened.

But I did knit more of my green socks. Does that count???

You must surrender your green yarn, philistine!!! Yummy, that Piece of Vermont skein is gorgeous (if only I weren't allergic to the mohair :( ).

I can't wait to see what you're getting in the mail.

This is not good, now I feel like there's someone out there after MY green sock yarn. Cease and desist, woman! :P

Alas, a beautiful selection of yarns. I appear to be gravitating towards the green too lately - perhaps there's something in the air?

Sigh. Looking at pictures of yarn just makes me happy :)

Lucy and Schroeder are getting along very well. I love the bits of red in the scarf. I also love all the green yarn! Happy (belated) St. Patrick's Day!

Pretty Greens. I think I may celebrate St Patty's late. Phil kept joking about going out and getting Guinness as my sick ass gave him increasingly dirty looks.

The scarf is lovely, and the beer, well it just takes my breath away.

And as others have said, I'm really into green right now too. I'm assuming it has to do with wanting the freshness and "aliveness" of spring after winter blues--

We had baked beans, sausage and brown beer for supper last night as befitting my irish/scottish heritage.

Ashley - I LOVE corned beef, potatoes and cabbage supper! We put big hunks of carrots in too.

Lucy and Schroeder are playing beautifully together!

Mmm, beer. Definitely keep us posted as to that Vermonter yarn - I've been meaning to buy some, she dyes the most beautiful semisolids.
