Scene: a dark and empty room. Cobwebs flutter in the corners; wind whistles through the broken windows. Somewhere, a shutter bangs.
An ominous creak is heard… a beam of light cuts across the dusty floor. As the door slowly opens, a freckled nose peers around it.
Whispers: “Hello?”
The freckled nose is followed by an embarrassed-looking 30-something woman, clutching a knitting bag. She shuts the door behind her and switches on the light. The room suddenly looks a little more friendly. She clears her throat, tries again in a stronger voice. “I’m back.” Dumps the bag on the table in the centre of the room. “And I’ve got some stuff to show you… if you’re still talking to me.”

By far the biggest, best and most exciting thing is — at LAST — the first of the Storytellers patterns. Including those stockings. Go here (the patterns are linked under three entries: Cinders’ Secret Stockings, the Fairy Godmother Scarf and the Wire-Laced Bag) and be sure to come back and tell me what you think!
After that it’s hard for any knitting to measure up — so I’m not even going to try, just yet. Enjoy some pretty pictures of Italy instead.

  1. Looks like you had a great time. Did you manage to get any kniting done too? Too much happening, too much lovely sightseeing going on there. Bet you missed us all though. Love the photos

  2. Knitting? Not really, no. I started swatching for something that didn’t really take. But that’s okay… our time was full. And it was strangely pleasant to put the knitting aside for a while. (Strange indeed; I have been feeling very knitting-deprived! But apparently it’s good to change pace completely every now and then.)
    And yes, you know I missed you! I did pick up my emails a couple of times. Helped ease the sense of disconnection a little!
