May All Your Days Bring Joy Like Spring

Happy St. Patrick's Day, Y'all.....

I dyed a skein of off-white Lion wool with candy-maker's food coloring. I'm planning to knit a tea cozy with it.This little green project named Lichen was a fun knit in the ravelry group Knitting and Tea and Cookies. Thanks to group administrator and designer, Mary for a fun mystery knitalong. It's a kerchief, by the way. And now, I'll leave you with a youtube video that I think is befitting of St. Patrick's Day.

and may the jingle in your pockets have a solid golden ring. ;)


  1. Love the new blog look. Very pretty flowers. Can't wait to see your new tea cozy.

  2. I am enjoying your green post!
    Top o' the morning to you !
    What a lovely shade of green yarn !

  3. What a gorgeous green! Happy St. Patrick's Day to you!

  4. There's no St. Patrick's here for us but St. Joseph's (next 19th, only two days apart). But I like this green all over your blog, looks like spring is here! Can't wait to see your new teapot cosy, I'm your biggest fan. :-)

  5. I love the green yarn! Daffodils are such happy flowers. :)

  6. Dear Tea,
    The Daffodils are just wonderful! I love spring flowers.
    WOW! You dye your own yarn? Amazing, the things one can do.
    I can't wait to see the tea cozy. Sounds exciting.
    Maybe your a long lost relative of Annie's? Never know......

  7. I enjoyed the youtube video. That is one of my all time favorite hymns! I haven't heard this version, so thank you for sharing it!

    Looking forward to seeing your tea cozy.

  8. I want to thank you for taking the time to wish us all a Happy St. Patrick's Day, by taking the tome to make this wonderful video and the song was appropriate for this. You made my day with this, and hope your day is going nicely also.

  9. I had to come back and listen to the video again, it was amazing. This country is really beautiful, thanks again.

  10. Your new blog colours are beautiful! Love the post too.
    Happy St. Patrick's Day to you.

  11. Thank you for the nice comment on my tea cosy....I find cosies are about the right size to practice my knitting on and they are so darn cute.

    Your kerchief is so pretty and I also can't wait to see your next cosy.
    Your Carmen Miranda cosy is gorgeous!!!

  12. Hello Tea!

    Love all your beautiful greens, truly a favorite color of mine. Oh how I have missed my normal visiting schedule here.:o) I am afraid my little shop has been keeping me busy as a little bee!

    Happy Easter to you and the family. Enjoy a most beautiful Sunday.



  13. Love your kerchief! It reminds me of the ones my mother used to knit for me. Yours is much fancier :)


Thank you for your comments!
