Hot and summery weekend

Everyone always bitches about the weather in Dublin, and the general consensus is that it's cold, grey and rainy all the time. Now, it is cold, grey and rainy a lot of the time, but not always.

This weekend, it was warm and sunny. On both days I wore my Birkenstocks, and today I wore a singlet. (This is evidence that is was, in fact, genuinely warm, because I hate to be cold.)

On Saturday I joined a bunch of other Dublin-based knitters in St Stephen's Green to celebrate World Wide Knit in Public Day. As usual, I didn't accomplish much knitting-wise, but it was fun to meet up with everyone and see their projects. Thanks Lien for organising us all!

It was also a chance for me to show off a beautiful cardigan I knat back in NZ, but hadn't had the chance to wear. It's a simple pattern - the only hassle lay in threading hundreds of beads onto the yarn - but it looks very impressive when it's done. David and I haven't gotten around to doing a photoshoot, but when we do, I'll post a photo or two.

Today we just ran some errands - nothing very exciting, but it was nice to run them wearing about half the amount of clothes we usually do! My only concerns regarding the warmer weather are the warmth of our already-warm apartment; and the local tendency towards loud outdoor hijinks when it isn't freezing cold and/ or raining heavily - these may interfere with our sleep.

Of course, it will be gorgeous weather all the coming week, because I will be in an office, unable to enjoy it. I knew this would happen - it always does - but I guess it's a small price to pay for the happiness of so many Dubliners. Me, a martyr? Aw, shucks.

oh what a nice looking gathering! I never get much knitting done at these events either. Too much talking!
