Feeling a lil' Irish

I've felt uber lazy this weekend but I managed to get a couple small things done. =)

I don't know if it's because I'm half Irish but I've always been fasinated by anything Irish and Celtic. Once upon a time I had plans to attend art school in Ireland. Unfortunately I could never scrape together enough funds even with grants and loans. *sigh*

I still want to visit there one day, so does Hash. And I'm half certain once we get there we'll end up calling my mom or my in-laws telling them, "Hey! Yea we're gonna stay here. Do us a favor? Sell all our shit and Western Union us the cash. Okaythanksbye."

So this weekend I made a cute lil' bag with some kelly green and cream yarn out of clover shapes. I'm very happy with how this turned out! =D

And I was just playing around but I came up with a lil' Celtic Knot. I've always enjoy drawing Celtic Knots so it was a lot of fun making one of yarn, heh.

Thank you jessi, chrissie, emy, and wyntir!!

I don't know if you can even call it a "pattern" LOL. It's just two afghan squares from an old printout I have. and then everything was SC'd together. And a simple chain and clover to close it all up.

I can't seem to find the site where I got the afghan square from. =( I printed it a few years ago and now that site seems dead. Maybe I can make up something similar though. If I figure something out I'll make sure to post it on my blog!

Same for the Celtic Knot! I'm hoping to try a bigger more intricate knot next!

Thanks again for the nice comments! =)
