Question of the Week #7

What is(are) your favorite place(s) to knit?
I mostly knit on my couch in the living room. There I have a good lamp and enough light to knit. And I like to knit at my terrasse, but not if it is so hot like today. Then I love more to stay inside.

What supplies (besides yarn & needles) make the setting perfect for knitting?
Good light, something to drink and often the television :-) or my mp3 player

Question of the Week #6

Questions #6
What is your favorite type of project to take along on holiday/vacation?

Mostly I only took socks with me. At this vacation I only knit one pair. When we went away in winter, I knit more. In the summer it is too hot for knitting. I prefer most to read a good book at vacation.

Question of the Week #5

1) Where is your favorite place to go for vacation/holiday?
2) Where is one place you’d like to go?

1) My favorite place is Italy. I love this country. I have stayed there for soooo many times. And as you read before, we had a wonderful vacation there this summer.

2) I would like to go to the scandinavian countries. A friend of mine made a trip with a boat at the norwegian coast this year and found it great.

Back from vacation

We are back from our wonderful vacation in Italy. We stayed there for two weeks, in San Lorenzo al Mare. It is a small town in the near of Imperia or San Remo, close to the French border. We had wonderful weather and much fun. We visited Monaco, Ezé, a zoo in the near of Nice and some other nice places. And we stayed many times at the sea. Here are some pictures from our trip.

When I came home, I found a envie from my Secret Pal. In them was a wonderful little bag, a alpaca yarn, some needles and a beautiful pattern. I will make a picture tomorrow and show it. It was a wonderful package. Thank you much. The pattern looks very nice and the yarn is so soft.
