I found out I am part Irish three and a half years ago when I was found by my original mom (I'm adopted) on Myspace. I never knew. The adoption agency only noted two nationalities on the paperwork they gave to my adoptive parents ..Scottish and English. I always felt left out as a child when St. Patrick's Day rolled around and everyone dressed in green. I usually wore black in protest.
Yesterday while I worked from home, I whipped up the rainbow hat using some yarn I had laying around.
Sadly, I didn't find a pot of gold when I was done but it came out okay. My son tried it on and just kept saying "It's so CUTE Mumma!!". *beam*
