No, I am definitely NOT buying any yarn on this trip to Dublin. I am going up tomorrow morning to the Knit & Stitch just to meet Julia who's over from California and bringing me some DYES, the wonderful girl (that's if she made it through Customs, I'm keeping my fingers crossed). We're meeting at the door of the RDS (The Royal Dublin Society) and will probably have a whale of a time exchanging stories and having a giggle. But DEFINITELY no yarn. I will have a good chat, a coffee, give Julia some fleece (natural) and some fleece (black aka brown) as well as a few other small goodies, then leave for home again, virtue intact. At least that's the plan... I know I said I wouldn't go, after having so much fun at the London one, but then found out that Julia would be in town and it didn't seem polite-like not to go along and say hi!
Taking the train as a treat - the distance to Dublin is only 160 miles but on Irish roads that's quite a marathon, even before you hit the Dublin traffic. And on the train I can knit and read and relax which is more than you can do on the road.
Updates tomorrow night, but in the meantime, thank you for all the wonderful stories and comments for Hallow-E'en. Isn't it incredible the way we can exchange these thoughts across the world? Can't wait to discuss Midwinter!
Must go to bed. 7 am train from Cork city which means a 5.30 am rise. Wa-a-a-hh. Still, it will be worth it to meet another weblogger, especially one who has come all the way from California. Pictures if I can get them, I promise - ok, and the show too, although I fear many of the UK stallholders just won't bother to make the trip across the Irish sea. Still, you never know...
