When I started this blog I knew that I would have a hard time keeping myself on track. I always make grand plans to be organized and stay on a schedule and then the first time something changes I get completely thrown off. I feel like at this point in my life I should be better at follow through but I’m just not there yet.

My plan was to make sure that I was coming up with new posts/patterns that were seasonally relevant in advance of the season. So that if any of you wanted to try to make my patterns you would actually have time to do so. So far, I’ve missed a few things. But I am trying. Maybe I’ll get better as we go. It’s a learning process, life is. And a new endeavor like this blog is doubly so. 

Anyway, I’m surprising myself even by getting this pattern out early. (And not really even that early, more like just in time.) I wanted to come up with something for Saint Patrick’s Day that hadn’t already been made a bunch of times and that was quick. I came up with this little Shamrock Cuff Bracelet. It’s quick to make and will add that little bit of green to your wardrobe so that you don’t end up black and blue from lots of pinches. (A super weird tradition, btw.)

You can make this in a solid green or do color changes and make the shamrocks stand out more!
