A Little Luck on Friday the 13th...

I didn't get around to trying the crochet shamrock pin just yet. I did manage to get a knitted one done though. I found this cute little shamrock on Vickie Howell's blog. She MUST be a mind reader. It's super cute and quick to knit not to mention easy. I do love quick and easy.

This one was made with some scraps of Sugar & Cream on a US Size 2 needle. Not much fun and pretty fussy working with tiny needles and worsted weight yarn. It was worth it. I Bedazzled the little green stone in the center. I also made another one with I Love This Yarn scraps but I haven't had a chance to get a photo of that one yet. I used a US Size 5 needle for that one and it was a lot nicer to work with and knit up even faster. I also tried doing a four leaf clover but I just couldn't get it to look as cute as the 3 leaves so I just stuck with the 3. :P

Thanks, Vickie for such a cute little pattern. Hop over to her blog and check it's a free pattern. I just need to make a few more for my daughter to give her best friends and I'm good. Well, actually I only need one more. Cool!!

Hope you're all having nice's turned cold here again after almost a week of Spring weather. I am sooo ready for Spring to stay.

Wishing everyone a safe and happy Friday the 13th! :P

OMG! It's nice to see you back. I'd almost given up on you. Love the projects you've been working on!

That is a super cute shamrock!! Reminds me of the time I made a paper shamrock for my father to wear to work (rapid transit motorman) on his jacket (he's Irish) on St. Patrick's Day...well that was the day he derailed his train. Need I say more, but he never wore that shamrock again ;)
