A Very Vegan St. Patrick's Day!
It's a Celtic Heart Knot headband! Here's a side pic so you can see the knot better:
Cute, right? The inspiration came late last night when I read the newest post on Emmakat. She made a super cute Celtic knot necklace and I had to give it a try. I have to admit, I'm not a master of knots and this project was nearly the death of me, but two youtube videos later I finally figured out the knot! The pattern was super easy to follow and it's called the Celtic Heart Knot from maddycraft. Here's a link to the youtube video that helped me the most. As you can see, I'm wearing the project as a headband rather than a necklace and I think it's pretty dang cute!
I don't drink alcohol, but I did have a festive green drink yesterday, here's my green apple iced green tea from the Tea Garden, it was delicious! Sorry for the less than awesome cell phone pic :)
While working on my headband, the husband and I watched an awesome Irish zombie movie called Boy Eats Girl- you guys know how much I love my zombie movies and this one was really fun!
Finally, I did a bit of late night baking and made some delicious vegan whoopie pies with green filling! The recipe I used is from the book My Sweet Vegan and it was fantastic, I'd never made whoopie pies before but they were a breeze to make. The only change I made to the recipe was that I used strawberry soy yogurt instead of the vegan sour cream because that's what we had on hand.
So what did you guys do on St. Patrick's Day?
