In these picture you can see little MariaJole, how cute is she?? Mariajole’s dad, Giovanni, is Davide’s cousin. I haven’t met them often, since they live near Bergamo, but they’re so nice and friendly!

Evangeline

Evangeline is my current project. I already made this pattern last winter. I’m working with Grignasco BIO in light grey. They’re for Dido, he choosed the pattern and the yarn from my stash.

I almost finished one. Pretty fast to knit, this pateren allows me to watch some movie while knitting.
I love to knit while watching something and as we don’t have a TV(yes, we don’t have it! and we do NOT want one!) usually it’s a dvd. Lately we have been watching the Harry Potter movies.
Ah, about the yarn: it looked a bit itchy but now that I have almost finished the first of the 2 gloves I have to admit that it’s really soft.
Pictures will come soon!

I know the week has barely started, but I can’t wait for the next weekend to come! I want to go to the beach in Liguria, starting to get tanned (I see a ghost in the mirror every morning…) and eat tons of delicious focaccia!

Sunday we have been near Bergamo to attend MariaJole’s christening. It was soooo hot, but the party was great. We were in a park and millions of children were running everywhere. The family branch that lives in Bergamo likes to prolificate. ^_^

I really love when we meet them all, I like them so much. They’re all nice and friendly, it’s nice to be part of the family even if they’re not my true family, as they’re Dido’s cousins.

Small pots with grass and daisy were given as small gift as a remembrance.

The food was great, especially the cake: light, creamy, with many strawberries… Perfect! I have to say that I really enjoyed the salamella and the affettati too! eheheh Yes, I ate a lot…. It was too good to resist!

Oh, and on Saturaday I went to Pavia in the morning to meet to Monelia and Gis from Ravelry for the first time! I have to say that we didn’t knit at all, but we talked a lot about different projects, yarns, travels…. ^_^ I hope we will meet again soon and do some knitting together. In the afternoon I had a nap, I wasn’t feeling well and I needed to lay down a bit, it was too hot.

For the dinner we went at Luca&Sybille’s place. They were here visiting from Vienna. No need to say that I enjoyed the night so much! They told us they’re going to move soon to a town near London, again no need to say that I do envy them a lot…. It’s hard to go on and live in Italy, I love my country but there are so many things that aren’t working at all…. Maybe someday we will go and live abroad…. We’ll see…

We are back!

After 3 years…. Wow it’s a lot of time!!

I’ve been thinking often about the blog lately, but I was to lazy to actually do something… ^_^’

But, in the end here we are! I have to admit that I decided to do it because I need a blog to join a swap on Ravelry. ^_^ That’s why I’m writing in english instead of italian, so everybody can read our posts. By the way, I don’t know if Dido is going to write too. If he is not, be ready ‘cause I’m going to talk a lot about yarn, knitting and cooking!
