Shawl Dreaming

Happy St. Patrick's Day!

As a child of a proud Pennsylvania Irish family growing up in a world of Scotch-Irish descendants, I've always had a weird association with St. Patrick's Day. On the one hand we have traced our roots directly back to Ireland, but on the other hand no one actually believed you were Irish if you went all out. It was the height of impostor syndrome and caused me to view the holiday with a bit of skepticism. But things may be changing.

This little guy is 10 months old today, so of course we had to deck him out in his best green. Which is when I realized that I am very low on green in my wardrobe. I have a sweater I knit a few years ago, but that's about it. I have a green shawl that has been waiting in the wings for a few months, but I'm really trying to be good and finish my Find Your Fade.

I'm in the final lace section so I need to just sit down, put on a few podcasts, and plow through.

But this -- this yarn is calling to me. I've had it slated for a Boho Blush ever since I saw teaser photos on Instagram, and I'm dying to cast on. I have visions of wearing it on the back deck in the early morning, wrapped up cozy with a book and a mug of coffee. Which I will immediately dip the gorgeous fringe into. As you do.

Oh screw it. If you'll excuse me I have some winding to do.
