What a beautiful sunrise earlier this week.  It was dark dark dark at 7:40 a.m. then when I next glanced up at close to 8 a.m. there was the most beautiful array of pink in the sky.  I went outside to get the full view and there was pink everywhere!  I worked hard at trying to turn off the flash on my camera but still couldn’t get it.  Technology – grr!  I must get that figured out for next time.

Today was Marathon Day in Dublin.  Dublin City Marathon.  It was a lovely autumn day and there were almost 11,000 runners pounding the streets of Dublin.  We are very proud of son Andrew who came in well ahead of his goal of breaking the 4 hour mark.  Well done Andrew!!  Here he is approaching the 16 mile mark.

Now to get ready for the Knitting and Stitching Show which is opening on Thursday.  Set-up day is Wednesday.  The Irish Guild of Weavers Spinners & Dyers will have a stand and I hope we have lots of visitors.  Pictures to follow.

Meanwhile I have 2 knitting projects on the needles.  One, a scarf in pink and yellow and the other the eccentric blanket.  The eccentric blanket is almost finished – the stray ends are sewn and only a bit of I-cord border remains to be done.  The pink and yellow scarf is about 3/4 along.
