For the hot and cold summer

Allegra,

I wanted to knit something for really hot summer, so I ordered 100 % organic linen yarn . It is rather difficult to knit since there is no stretch to the yarn and it shows every mistake you make but I just love the feel of linen and it’s coolness when it is hot.P1060318 P1060317 P1060307P1060304

Unfortunately we have had very few warm days so far. Hot? None.

But us knitters won’t freeze! I finally finished my blue fair isle sweater. After two years planning, trying out different color (always blues) combinations, calculating stitches and ribbing out numerous times it is finally finished:IMG_0725P1060228P1060235P1060232IMG_0723

Allegra,

A brake so relaxing in such  beautiful surroundings did all us wonders. I have a very soft spot for Italy ( not though for their politics ). I can’t help but LOVE their food, wine and gelato, so we enjoyed all of that:
