Happy St. Patrick's Day!

Hello everyone! I haven't forgotten about my promise to share with you the pattern of my Shamrocks Shawl, I've just been too busy to write a post on here, though the pattern's been on Ravelry for quite some time now; anyway, there you go: http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/shamrocks-shawl.

Yeats and the Celtic elements within the folk traditions of Éire, a few years back, and thanks to this I got to know Irish culture much better than I did, though I still haven't had the occasion to visit the place. Needless to say, I love everything related: mythology, folklore, traditions...
