buon giorno!

Well, that was a nice little break! The mister and I just got back from a long-planned trip to Italy and had the most amazing time seeing places we’ve read and studied about, eating incredible pastas and gelato, the wine, oh the wine! It feels like we’ve been gone for so long, and it also feels like we never went! How can it be all over already?

Due to circumstances delaying things on al of our ends, the pop-up shop at Room6 is going to be postponed for a few weeks. We don’t have a date yet, but we’re all hoping for the beginning of November. Melissa is tending her husband who is slowly but surely recovering from a kidney transplant, I’m getting myself organized, and Megan is awaiting deliveries of items that will be part of the shop. It was agreed that it’s best for everyone to take a few more weeks to get ready. I will update here on the blog and on our Facebook page when we have a new date set.

In the meantime, I’m still working on the five (yes, I crazily brought five) knitting projects. I finished one of them, almost done with two of them, half way there with the fourth one and never touched the fifth. I also never wore 20% of the clothes I brought and really only needed 1 pair of shoes. When will I ever learn!!! lol

I believe I was the only person knitting in all of Italy. Well, maybe that is exaggerating, but I never saw anyone with needles or a hook. I carried a project with me most days so that when we would take a break from our job of being good tourists, I could relax and knit a few rows. Of course my vino della casa helped relax me a bit too. I wish we had such good wine here, at such good prices! Or maybe it’s better we don’t. hah. Same with the gelato.

I never did find a yarn shop, although I didn’t look very hard. But that’s okay, I did get lots of inspiration for future ideas!

Sorry for just reposting my instagram photos, but I haven’t had time to download the ones from my camera. Laundry and a kitty who needed surgery yesterday got me sidelined. But soon, I hope. Prego!

  1. I loved following you around Italy through your Instagram photos, so I certainly don’t mind seeing them again! When I was in Italy three years ago, I did check out a couple yarn stores in Florence, but I didn’t end up buying anything. Most of the yarns weren’t that different from commercial yarns we see here.

    By the way, I’m loving your Ripple Wave Mitts pattern. I am almost done with the first one.
