Good Morning from Italy....




It's a long weekend.  Tomorrow is Liberation Day.  I love Liberation Day, it always feels so, well, liberating.

Some blogging friends have organized a virtual craft and reading circle day.  We participants are, well, virtually crafting and reading together (real crafting and real reading, virtually together).  Awesome.  So I will be posting regularly throughout the day as will these folks:

Oh my god.  What am I doing inside right now!


Ahhh, that's better.  More later, friends.


Midday Update....

Seems at though the weather is fully on board with my plans to read and craft today.  Just after this**

came these



and a piss down of rain.  Perfect.  No guilt about staying inside to knit instead of weeding this



Nope. No weeding.  Just dodging rain drops, grabbing some mint, making some tea (grandma's tea cup....nothing but the best for my virtual friends),


and back to the couch to cast on the front....



In case anyone is wondering, I'm working on this sweater.


It comes from one of the first knitting books I ever bought.




I've made this sweater once or twice before....


more later.....

**thanks to David for that photo.

  1. oh wowh, I love your view, your flowers and your knitting. Right now you have the most special place to be creative. You should show us your patio with the unique surrounding... See you soon. I'm so looking forward to the progress of this day...

  2. Good morning! I hope you enjoy the day - and this wonderful view and the sunshine in Italy make me a little jealous. ;) Oh, and I love the colour of you wool!

    (Whew, reading in English is so much easier for me than writing, but I hope that I will manage without too many problems during the day. ;) )

  6. The sweater looks chic and cozy at the same time - I love it and I think it will be great in that colour. Grandma's teacup is really an eyecatcher. Rainy days are really not for weeding, those days are meant for knitting, tea and books!

    1. I'm beginning to think that SUNDAYS (rain or shine) are for knitting, tea and books!

  9. Happy Liberation Day! What a wonderful holiday - every April 25 one could make it their own liberation day :) although I did google Liberation Day Italy and got a history lesson. Love the sweater and really am lovin' the flowers on the patio. Beautiful
