Irish Beauty

I had a mini-brainstorm while browsing knitting sites on the web a couple of weeks ago.  I came across This is Knit – a yarn shop in Dublin, Ireland. Wouldn’t it be cool to get some Irish yarn??  And wouldn’t it be cool to make something for my mom – the quintessential Irish girl? 

Mom around 1970
This is an old picture of her, but you get the idea!!  This was at her sister’s wedding. 
 
Anyway, I found a pattern for some cute fingerless gloves and will make them for her for Christmas with this:
 
It came yesterday!!  So psyched about this project.  May even cast on tonight!!  I’m on my fourth cowl now.  They are great for knitting while watching tv – just need to measure it once in awhile.
