Of course, it wouldn’t have been a holiday in Tuscany if I hadn’t been knitting. And when I wasn’t knitting, I was reading about knitting in The Friday Night Knitting Club. In fact, I came home and haven’t knit a stitch in 36 hours…dare I say I am even a little “knitted out”?
While in Tuscany I knit 3 socks, 1 Evangeline fingerless mitten, and I finished my shawl! Whew!
Take a look at some of the knitting I did while on holiday in Italy.

Whew! What a lot of knitting. I can’t show the mittens, because they are part of a swap gift! But they are super cute (did I just say “super cute”?).
Now that I’m home I have two in a half weeks before I head to the states. In that time I’d like to finish the left side of Arwen (haven’t I said that before?) and finish up the second Nutkin sock and second mitten. I’m also planning to write up the pattern for the socks I designed, and publish them here on the blog by the end of the week.
Hopefully I’ll get some knitting time, in between cleaning, unpacking, repacking, a visit from my cousin Allison (yay!), and writing.
I’m sure I can make some.
