In honor of the upcoming St. Patrick’s day holiday, we’ve come up with a weekend’s worth of projects to knit – and yummy food and drinks to prepare. It’s everything you need for your own “Celtic Chill Zone” – a place to knit fancy cables, sip a tasty beverage, and munch on some delicious food. There’s a little something Celtic for everyone!

    Thank You so much for the CotLin yarns! I’ve knitted a few dishcloths & the texture of the yarn is a treat to work with. I’ve just finished knitting a lacey cowl with this yarn & it has turned out beautifully. I’ll definitely be buying more of the CotLin yarns! Thanks again.
