Hey, guess what David brought me home from Helsinki...here's a picture:


I'll give you a clue, it wasn't lemons or a new pipe.

Yep, it's yarn! Check that stuff out... hand spun, hand dyed (from natural things like mushrooms and stuff!). Look at those colors!

Another little game... can you guess what I'm knitting with it? Free subscription to OliveKnitting blog for the correct answers.

By the way, the lemons came from very dear neighbors, Oreste and his sister Alba. Oreste was the last person born in Maberga (Maberga is actually a little hamlet at the end of our road that was destroyed by a fire about 40 years ago and never rebuilt-I'll blog some photos some time). Oreste and Alba have, in the past year been trying to save their parents' land and make a great vegetable garden. They knew that David was out of town so they dropped off the lemons so I could make limoncello for him for when he returns. How nice is that?! Obviously I haven't made the limoncello yet but have every intension! (Limoncello, for those who don't know, is a sweet lemon liqueur). The pipes are David's creations...cool, no?

    Just read your last three blogs, great stuff. Unbelievable about the car, well not really. Different countries have different rules and regs. Glad everything turned out okay. The Limoncello sounds good. I hope you make some and we can sample it next fall, if there is anything left. We just finished the olive oil David brought us. Very good thanks again.
