before we close for vacation. We will be back on Thursday April 28th. I will be blogging in the meantime from Italy....food, architecture, possibly yarn. It seems odd to me that the castle we are staying in was built in the 12th century - and has WiFi . I am taking way too many knitting projects with me and as suggested by someone, crocheting for the plane so they don't take my lovely rosewood needles from me when we change planes in Paris or somewhere. I have a stash of naturally dyed fingering weight yarns in greens and yellows and tans and they want to be a crocheted shawl. I am really questioning though - how many balls of yarn can you crochet in 24 hours? I keep putting some in my suitcase and then taking them out for the plane again.... There are 2 long layovers and I am fast.
