I have not long returned form a beautiful wedding in Sorrento, Italy and I thought I would share with you my yarn adventures. Before I left for Italy I had been scouring the Internet to find out if there was a wool shop in Sorrento but I couldn't find one anywhere. When I arrived I asked our tour guide but they weren't aware of any but thankfully a sharpe eyed member of the family spotted some balls of yarn in a shop window.
It belonged to this place:
175 Corso Italia
Its on the main street running through Sorrento just down form the main square. They don't have a huge selection of yarn but they do have some unusual fancy yarns and some lovely merino yarn in baby colours. I picked up some merino for myself and made a lovely stole.
In other crochet news:
I have been exploring the world of Tunisian crochet and I feel it may make my kniting needles redundant. It's very addictive and faster that knitting. Though I can't seem to get the hang of doing it in the round just yet.
If you have been following me on Twitter (@MaggieVassie) you would have heard about the continuing saga of the boyfriend blanket. Well it is now complete and looking awesome. Shaun was very happy.
Now that I have that project out of the way I am thinking of making the preppy jacket from the Happy Hooker for myself before the Christmas crafting begins.
