A California Touch of Irish

Happy St. Patrick’s Day to you all! I am not Irish and do not particularly celebrate. I’m much more likely to spend my day cooking ropa vieja, platanos fritos, and rice and beans than corned beef and cabbage. But I realized as I was organizing my yarn purchases from Stitches West that the miniscule Irish blood in me must have been in full force that weekend.

This is on the drive to Silicon Valley, but it is how I imagine Ireland.

California has been in a very serious drought for quite some time now, and in another few months, there won’t be green anywhere except for well-watered yards. But in driving to Silicon Valley, we passed scenery that made me feel as though I was driving through the Irish countryside. And although green is not usually the color I gravitate towards, I somehow managed to come home with a spring palette of deep oceanic green with a touch of melon.
