Don't worry. I love having a good story to tell: Dublin was one of the highlights of my trip!
...I do hope to see it for real, one day, though. That is: in daylight, with actual places to visit, other than random back streets! LOL I have no idea if/when I'll ever return, but if I do, I'll let you know! That would be really cool, to hang out with another knitter in my travels!
I've definitely had my share of disasters. Like my first sweater design. I made it for my nephew, and it was pretty cute, but he could BARELY sqeeze into it! No room for even a shirt under it, it was so tight on his arms, and it came up way above his navel! LOL
Let's see, I think I can dig up a pic for you all....
