'Tis a shamrock octagon

It's a little early for St. Patrick's Day, but I have a habit of immediately starting to look forward to the next holiday the moment the last one is over.

So, with Valentine's Day 2009 a not-so-distant and very delightful memory, I've moved straight into the annual celebration of all things Irish with the Shamrock Octagon from Melody Griffith's 201 Crochet Motifs, Blocks, Projects and Ideas.

If you look closely, you'll see eight tiny shamrocks circling the motif, which I crocheted using a little scrap of leftover yarn from a sweater my Mom knitted for me years ago.

Sure an' today's is a cozy wee project, isn't it?

I think this calls for some Bailey's. I could use a belt.
