this is my current knitting project – a blanket, hopefully a big blanket. Progress to date is approx. 16 inches. The blanket is 34 inches wide (160 sts). I’m using a size 4.5 mm circular needle (bamboo tips), 75 cm long. I’m using one strand of the blue and white yarn you see on the right and one strand of a colour from the stash.
I’m using yarn from the stash here in Dublin. That’s mainly yarn sent to me for the tapestry I was going to make for the Guild Exhibition supplemented by yarn purchased for other projects. Today I went in to town to This Is Knit to get more supplies – I wanted to get yellow and I ended up with orange and a very bright yellow from Uruguay.

To change the subject, on my walk down the hill to get the LUAS I passed the following display of litter
Fly tipping urban style. Are the people who live in the houses nearby supposed to pick up the bags and put them in their black wheelies and pay for the extra weight thereby incurred? (Here in Dublin we pay for rubbish disposal by weight.) What is the mentality of people who are leaving their rubbish like this? I feel incensed enough to write a letter to the editor.
