In honor of St. Patrick’s Day, we’ve come up with a bunch of links for you to create your very own “Celtic Chill Zone” – a place to knit fancy cables, sip a delicious beverage, and listen to the sounds of waves upon a rocky shore (or U2, whichever you prefer). In your Celtic Chill Zone, perhaps you could:
A gorgeous pattern from Illuminated Lines (where you’ll find the cardigan pictured, above) or
Aran Knits (I love Martin Storey. He’s one of my all-time favorite designers) or
Start small with an Aran Earflap Hat
An Aran Afghan where you learn so many new crochet stitches
and, just for fun, Lucky Charms Ice Cream!
or a Homemade Shamrock Shake (I’m totally making this!)
The Fall (a thriller set in Belfast)
The Quiet Man
The Secret of Kells (a gorgeous animated movie for everyone)
Run and Jump
Listen to: The Pogues, My Bloody Valentine, The Corrs, Snow Patrol, Rubyhorse, The Thrills, Thin Lizzy, Two Door Cinema Club, Ham Sandwich, The Cranberries, Gaelic Storm, Loreena McKennitt, The Dubliners, The Chieftains, Boyzone AND B*Witched
Do you have any favorite celtic-themed things that you like to chill out to? Write them in comments for everyone to see!
