sockin’ molly

i’ll wait for you till i turn blue
there’s nothin’ more a man can do
don’t get your bollocks in a twist
settle down, don’t take a fit
(“salty dog” from the album swagger, 2000)

for those of you who have never heard of flogging molly, get out there and buy a cd! df and i came upon this band when he heard that his former skate hero played accordian for the band. (by the way, the first song in the background of the video is by “the best band ever in the history of bands” according to df! operation ivy) anyway, we saw flogging molly in concert last year during the dublin (ohio) irish festival. you should have seen the crowd…there were punks in kilts and grandparents toting toddlers around. the appeal of the band, to say the least, is widespread. if anything, the music puts you in the mood for something a little green…

sockin’ molly kelly green yarn
80% superwash merino / 20% nylon
2 skeins – 2.5 oz / 210 yards
machine wash / tumble dry

this yarn comes to me by the yet unnamed sock club that i recently joined. (hi lynn and pam!) we had a great first meeting, i even met a columbus knit blogger! anyway, the moment i saw the yarn i thought of saint patty’s day and all things irish.

The sock club sounds like great fun — lovely colours in that yarn, and it shows very well in that pattern!

I’ve got more than a wee bit o’ the Irish in me blood as well. And my daughter, even more so because her da was Irish and Apache (interesting mix).

Beautiful green yarn, knitting up very nice too.

I love the greens in that yarn! It does make one think of St. Patricks Day eh? Can’t wait to see the completed socks when you’re done!
