Buongiorno! I thought I would take a different approach to the Newsletter this week. I have been on a short break to Venice and wow, it was absolutely wonderful. Knitting and wool seemed to find me even in Venice – I was in my element!
This little wool shop was situated down a tiny street and even though I do not speak any Italian, and the assistant did not speak any English, we seemed to get along just fine. She wanted to show me all the patterns and the beautiful yarns. The colours were just amazing and even though we are all European their taste is completely different to ours.
Their patterns seem to be a little more elaborate than ours, but the Italian women are so stylish I think that a little Italian influence would be a good thing here. Follow the link by clicking the image below and you’ll see what I mean.
If you have something from Italy that you really like, then send us a picture and we shall see if we can create our own Italian wall and use these for some inspiration. Let’s see where the Italian mood takes us.
