Repetition

In spite of my of-late befuddled brain, I've managed to finish some baby knits. These have already made their way to the recipient. 

Pattern; Offset Wraplan, with some modifications to the stitch distribution in the front & back of the garment. 
Yarn; Debbie Bliss Rialto DK. 
Buttons; I may have picked these up in Hickey's on Henry St - my memory fails me.

Pattern; Devil's Cap - Purl Free finished off with a knotted i-cord. 
Yarn; Debbie Bliss Rialto DK
True to my recent form, I wasn't bothered putting any thought or preparation into recent knits, and so just kept working on more of the same - though these remain unfinished.  It won't go to waste though - I already know of 4 babies due next year!!

Road trip!!!

I recently took a few days off & headed over to Galway & Clare with the other half.  I only took a few photos and they don't do justice to the pure wonder of the landscape. 
 Poulabrone Dolmen; if it was part of the leaving cert art history course it's stuck in my brain for good.

 Cliffs of Moher; the photos don't really give you the sense of scale ... these cliffs are enormous. Spot the teeny wee cows in the distance. Not small, but far away.

We also visited Ailwee cave, aka the 'Very Dark Caves' of Father Ted fame. It's difficult to get a photo of darkness. I refrained from singing 'Bohemian Rhapsody' in Father Noel style... just.
