Not much in the way of knitting

It's been a quiet photo worthy knitty week here.
I'm about to start the last chart of the afghan (can I get a yay?) so I hope to have a beautious FO to show next post. I'll have to wait till next Tuesdays knitting group to get help to sew on the backing fabric though, so it won't be fully finished till then.

I've knit about 4 rounds of Alices Sunday Swing socks as well, so like I said a really slow week.

We went to the Dublin Kite Festival last Sunday though, and it was great fun. It was an amazingly hot day, not a cloud in the sky. So rare for here, let me tell you! Just perfect for viewing kites, although not quite windy enough for flying them...

Hubby took lots of pictures:
Here's a slideshow of some of the best pics we took:

Oh, I almost forgot, I got an email from The Book Depository and my copy of Alice Starmore's Fair Isle Knitting is winging its way to me as we speak! I can't wait to get this and have a good read.

I'm going to be different, and give you a WOOT! for the afghan :) Glad you had fun at the kite festival.

Yeh-hay! It's fantastic that you're nearly done on the afghan. It's going to be such an amazing present for the Inlaws. Also, just think of the bulk and weight of it in your luggage reserving space for its equivalent bulk and weight on the return flight - such a reward!!!
Enjoy your Alice Starmore - it's a beautiful book. I bought mine at the I Knit Weekender in London last weekend (and got her to sign it - yeay me). After browsing through it you'll be all "Intarsia is soooo last WIP!" Fair Isle's the new Intarsia, heh heh.

Wow! Yay on the afghan. I hope to see it in the wool so to speak on tuesday.
