One our second stop on our virtual tour of Europe, we are in lovely Florence, ITALY!!!! Here we see the famous Il Duomo - Cattedrale de Santa Maria del Fiore. Here, explore!! It's fun!! Someday, someday.....
I took a turn from Bezzie and ran to the thrift shop the other day, I have gone other times, but this was in search of knitterly things. I did find a nice, cotton sweater that I loved the yarn on. I plan to unravel it and make something more for Texas weather. A 7lb cotton sweater ain't one of them.
And then I heard a small wimper. I searched and searched and I finally found a cause. A poor, defenseless, handknit, argyle sweatervest. It looked so sad, and unloved, so I decided that I would give it a good home. I retrained it into something everyone would appreciate.
(Okay, like I said....flickr and I were having a disagreement. I will attempt to reupload later.)
The dark diamonds are actually a dark red, but doesn't it look nice and happy?!? I wanted to preserve the argyle because I know how much hardwork went into it. And all for $2.
Speaking of cheap, checkout my needle holder, ala pieKnits:
I used the clothespin stand things for the larger needles and I think it will go up to a US13. Now I just need to find all of my needles........
