Happy Day After St. Pat's Day! St. Patrick's Day is my favorite holiday and this year I celebrated it by running the LA Marathon. My mom was there to cheer me on, as well as so many great running friends. I'll post the details later, but in the meantime... check this cute crocheted beanie. One of my dad's nurses asked if I could make her a beanie with ear flaps to go with her scarf when she traveled to Ireland to celebrate March 17th. How amazing would it be to get to spend St. Pat's Day in IRELAND?!? Of course, I had to make her one. The was my first ever beanie with ear flaps and it turned out great! I was kind of nervous about trying to make one, but it wasn't as hard as I thought it would be. Definitely going to be making more of these in the future. Here is the tutorial I used. It's for a owl beanie, which would be super cute as well. I just left the owl details off and added a shamrock instead. Esty has a fast shamrock tutorial here.
