Irish graphic - CopyI guess it’s no secret that I really enjoy all things Irish.

I’m 25% (with the other nationalities I’ve got mixed in there, believe me 25% is plenty!) Irish with ancestors from County Cork.

I love going to Ireland, hearing Irish spoken and listening to traditional Irish music (especially in a smoky pub … with a glass of Guiness and a plate of taties). On my list of things to do before I die: Learning to play the Irish fiddle and spending at least three months traveling throughout the Emerald Isle.

It should be no surprise then, that my love of all things Irish spills over into my hand-knit design work.

Here are just some of my Celtic-inspired designs … all available for immediate download from my Ravelry store:
