Here are the Alps, with a Barbapapa doll that I purchased. I thought I'd dreamt up the Barbapapas! Does anyone else remember them?
Here we are after climbing to the top of the Duomo. It was not an easy trip, but so worth it.
I feel like I can't really sum up the trip - it was relaxing and enriching and just fantastic. We rushed around all day, popping from site to site to site. Then we napped. Then we passed our evenings enjoying fresh mozzarella and savory pastas and lots of red wine. Is it time to go back?
I've been plugging away on the summer shawlette, but I messed up on the flight home and had to rip it all back. So not exciting progress shots. And I think I'm gonna start the long sleeve trapeze jacket soon.
In the meantime, enjoy this slideshow about knit dresses. I have seen a lot on the streets lately -- many with beautiful, bulky cables -- but I'm not sure I'd have the commitment to knit a dress. And I certainly won't be knitting my wedding gown. And I most definitely, certainly won't be knitting everything in my wedding.
