Aren't you the gold at the end of the rainbow?   As swing into craft gear for St. Patrick's Day, I tend to think leprechauns and rainbows rather than a suit of green. With that in mind and dead tired of winter and in desperate need of a spring. I crocheted a warm rainbow collar. Not quite cowl.  Not quite jewelry, but something comfortably in the middle.

An Irish Blessing!

May the road rise to meet you. 
May the wind be always at your back. 
May the sun shine warm upon your face. 
And rains fall soft upon your fields. 
And until we meet again, 
May God hold you in the hollow of His hand.
