Holiday knitting break and research

Britisher's picture

I'm off to Rome for a holiday tomorrow morning. Things have been so manic getting finished at the office that I haven't picked up the sweater I'm working on all week, and won't be taking it with me to Italy. I have, however, done my homework and will be visiting two of Rome's yarn stores and will report back with what I find.

Rome?! Oh Glorious Rome! I

Rome?! Oh Glorious Rome! I was there about 10 years ago. LOVED it! Absolutely loved it.

Enjoy... truly. And hit the piazza navona for a Tartufo and La Casa Del Caffe Tazza D'oro for a frozen espresso con pana.... mmmmm.... Both within walking distance of one another AND by a bunch of Bernini fountains.

Grace and Peace,

Awh, what a sad story, can

Awh, what a sad story, can imagine how you were miffed. Fortunately I have 9 nights in Rome, so hopefully will manage to gain admission at some point while I'm there.

I was so mad, I was on

I was so mad, I was on vacation in Sydney and after a 14 hour flight I got off the plane and went straight to the LYS that had been mentioned in "It's my party, and I'll knit if I want to!"....but I got there 10 min after they closed. I did not have time to go back again, I even banged on the door to no avail. Sad Panda :(
