It’s Paddy, not Patty


It’s that time of year when my social media timelines start the great debate…Paddy versus Patty.

1 ) Patrick = Pádraig = Paddy
2 ) St. Patrick’s Day is on 17th March.
3 ) St. Paddy’s Day is a national holiday here.
4 ) We never use Patty for Patrick = Pádraig = Paddy
5 ) Patty = burger

I finally got around to writing and uploading one of my knitting with wire patterns. Just in time for Paddy’s Day

I’m making a statement by launching my new pattern, It’s Paddy, not Patty a shamrock brooch knit with wire.

The pattern is available as a free Ravelry download…
