It's only one more day until I embark on my fabulous trip to Italia! My packing is not nearly done but I got my passport and euros! I'm very anxious about getting there and doing all the fabulous sightseeing but cannot help feeling nervous about being the "responsible adult". I guess that should come with the territory of being one of several chaperones for the 30+ female teenagers going. I can just see me scolding one of them to "get off the back of that vespa, do you even Know him?"
Of course I am beyond excited about touring a country I've never been to. I did a little research on yarn shops and have chosen only two to try to go see in Rome. Lana Della Vecchia has been mentioned on a few blogs and looks like a must see and perhaps purchase place. The other is Filati Filpucci a suggestion by Yuvee. I figured I wasn't going to make a huge list of shops because I really don't know how much free time in Rome I will have. I will just have to plan another trip to Italy... I'm thinking next time, Florence!
I'm almost done with the back of Cherry and want to maybe finish that before I go so I can work on the fronts and sleeves while I'm away. I also am bringing a new project with me. The Rutabaga bag from the spring 2007 Knitscene. It's time I took the great advice of the Worsted Witch's blog and become a little more eco friendly. (Also my dear friend Patricia said it's time I stop using plastic bags!)
I probably won't be able to do much checking of emails while I'm away so keep on knitting and creating and I cannot wait to get back to see new updates and to tell you all of my Italian travels!
For now when I should be packing I feel more like prepping the pallet for the goodies that are in store.
I hope everyone has a lovely end of June and one Happy 4th of July!! Talk to you Soon!
